As a New England moving company, we know a little bit about moving in the winter months. After moving families for well over 100 years, we’ve endured countless winters and thousands of moving jobs in the cold weather.
If you are moving this winter, you’ll want to be as prepared as possible. Here are a few basic tips for getting ready for your winter move.
Be ready for any type of weather
Any moving company in Massachusetts and anywhere in the northeast will tell you that you need to be prepared for any type of weather when moving in the winter. And if you live in the Northeast then you know that it can be snowing one day, and 70 degrees the next so be ready. Have a selection of clothing for any type of weather, have shovels and brooms ready and be ready for a possible delay if the weather gets too bad.
Have a backup plan for bad weather
When moving in the winter, you’ll want to keep consistent communication with both your moving company and your real estate professional. If there are any types of delays, you’ll want to have a backup plan. That includes a budget for hotels and meals and possible short-term storage.
Make sure utilities are on in both homes
One problem that occasionally arises when moving is miscommunication between the homeowner and utility companies. If you’re moving this winter, you’ll want to ensure that your utilities are up and running at your existing home and destination. If there’s confusion, you may get to your new home and find no heat or electricity, so it’s important to double-check with a phone call.
