3 Important Tips for Winter Moving, Cincinnati, Ohio

Moving during winter weather is sometimes unavoidable, so it helps to have a plan of action ready to mitigate potential challenges. Hiring experienced movers will be the best decision you make, to ensure the safety and security of your property. The list below discusses several essential tips to help your move go smoothly.

3 Winter Moving Tips

1. Don’t Move Your Own Stuff

With snow and icy conditions, winter is not the time to go it alone. Professional movers have heavy-duty trucks, equipment, and manpower that will make your move much more safe and efficient. With the heavy lifting assigned to movers, you will be free to handle logistical concerns or other tasks at your new residence. If the weather becomes impassible, be sure to have a back-up date scheduled with movers to ensure there is an extended delay in your move.

2. Prep for the Occasion

MoversBefore the movers arrive, you should make the moving area as safe as possible. Take time to shovel snow from the driveway, entryway, and sidewalk where the moving team will be staging. You can prevent the likelihood of ice forming by laying down salt the night before the move. Place tarp or other non-slip material in the entryway and on your floors to prevent accidents.

3. Weatherproof Your Packing

As much as possible, you should try to protect your items from the effects of melted snow and ice. If you pack with cardboard boxes that may need to sit in the driveway before placing them in a moving truck, they could become wet and prone to breakage, and damage to your belongings. Instead, pack your valuable items in plastic bins and save the cardboard for items that will be transported directly to your new location without going to a storage unit or other area where it could be exposed to the elements.
