Though the height of moving season is usually around April-September, it\u2019s not completely unusual to find yourself having to move during the winter months. However, if you\u2019re having some reservations as to how practical or even doable it is to move during the winter months, we\u2019ve got everything you need to plan and pull off a winter move properly.\u00a0 When you\u2019re moving in winter, there are a lot more factors to take into account than with a move during any other season. Since we\u2019re assuming here that you need advice regarding winter moving in a state or area that experiences all four seasons and hence a cold or snowy winter season, it\u2019s understandable that you might b e a little apprehensive regarding pulling off a move amidst intemperate weather.\u00a0 As it starts getting colder out, you might be wondering how to properly prepare for your upcoming winter move. Luckily for you, we\u2019ve got the complete guide to all things winter moving.\u00a0 \tHave a Backup Plan Make sure to have a plan in case snow or in-climate weather or low temperatures decide to show themselves on your moving day. Have a backup day already scheduled just in case.\u00a0 \u00a0 \t Stay Warm This might go without saying, but many can feel tempted to shed outer layers in favor of being able to move around faster during a move, but don\u2019t do it! Make sure you have snow clothing or winter coats and shoes, as well as hats and gloves to protect yourself while moving in the cold. \t Be Prepared for Anything Have a first aid kit, ice scrapers, and a snow shovel ready to go just in case. You never know what can happen, whether it\u2019s a surprise snow storm, ice, or even just somebody slipping and falling, so make sure to have everything you might need on hand.\u00a0 \t Pay Extra Attention to Delicate Items Make sure more delicate items are shielded from the cold and aren\u2019t at risk for freezing inside of an unheated moving truck. If anything is temperature-sensitive, move it separately or keep it with you.\u00a0 \t Take it Slow Especially in icy or slushy weather, it\u2019s important not to rush or put yourself at risk for injury. Make sure your floors are protected or otherwise prepared for people moving in and out with wet shoes or for other risk factors. Moving fast and getting things done isn\u2019t worth a slip or fall! \t Plan Ahead Make sure your new location has the power on and heat already on when you get there - drive over if you can and check to make sure before you show up with your moving truck or company. If you\u2019re moving into an apartment complex, make sure you\u2019ve given your property manager notice as to when you\u2019re moving in, and have any rugs or non-slip floor protectors down to lessen the risk of injury. Make sure to have a first aid kit at the ready, and make sure you have back up ice scrapers or other cold weather supplies ready to go. Now that you\u2019ve got the tools to keep you organized and safe during your winter move, you can get your items ready. Good luck and stay warm!
