While the idea of relocating during the coldest months may seem daunting, it’s also an opportunity to embrace the season’s unique challenges and create a seamless transition into a new chapter of life. Here are some tips to help navigate the chill and ensure a smooth and stress-free winter move:

Plan Ahead: Winter weather can be unpredictable, so it’s essential to plan your move well in advance. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and hire professional movers like Premier Relocations, who have experience navigating winter roadways and can handle any unexpected challenges that may arise.

Bundle Up: Dress warmly on moving day, layering up with insulated clothing and waterproof outerwear. Don’t forget gloves, hats, and scarves to protect yourself from the biting cold. Keeping warm will not only make the move more comfortable but also help prevent cold-related illnesses. Unfortunately, as items are being moved in or out, your door will be open for extended periods of time.

We will use sturdy boxes and packing materials to shield fragile items from the cold and moisture. We will wrap your furniture in blankets or plastic wrap to prevent damage from snow and ice.

Clear Pathways: Before the movers arrive, make sure to clear pathways and driveways of snow and ice. Salt or sand slippery surfaces to reduce the risk of accidents. By creating a safe and accessible path, you’ll minimize the likelihood of delays, damages, and injuries and ensure a smooth transition from old home to new.

Keep Essentials Handy: Pack a winter survival kit with essentials like blankets, snacks, water, flashlights, and a first-aid kit. Keep it easily accessible during the move, so you’re prepared for any unexpected delays or emergencies. Additionally, pack a separate box with necessities like toiletries, medications, and a change of clothes for immediate use upon arrival at your new home.

Utilize Storage: If you’re unable to move all your belongings into your new home right away, talk with your salesperson or move coordinator. Premier Relocations offers short and long term storage and we have over 500 partners around the country who offer the same secure storage options. This will help protect the condition of your belongings until you’re ready to move them into your new space.

Stay flexible and be prepared to adjust your schedule or make alternative arrangements if necessary. Remember that patience and adaptability are key to navigating a winter move successfully.
