Moving has no bad weather: winter moving and its features

When planning with a move, we cannot, unfortunately, plan the weather either. Moving in the winter has a number of features that must be taken into account in order for the transportation of your property to be safe and of high quality.

The first thing you should pay attention to when planning a move in the winter is, of course, the traffic situation. In winter, the driving style on the roads becomes more careful, the traffic flow is slower than in summer, more problems with parking in the yards are no secret. Managers of the moving company make the most accurate calculation based on the traffic situation, but you need to be prepared that the time of the truck on the road may increase.

The second feature is the increased attention to the packaging of things. For many items, temperature fluctuations and high humidity can be detrimental. If it’s snowing outside, you may need extra packing material to make sure your items don’t get wet. Our specialists with many years of experience are ready to give professional recommendations on the packaging standards for any property – from clothes and books to household appliances and antiques.

Thirdly, transportation of household appliances in frost requires special care. In addition to careful packaging, the time to turn on and off the equipment matters. So, for example, some manufacturers require you to turn off your equipment a couple of hours before taking it out into the cold and also turn it on only a few hours after moving from frost to a warm room.
