Best Way to Move During Winter Months

Summer is the best time of the year to move to a new house, or to request commercial moving services. Most schools will close so the he streets will be less busy. The weather is also pleasant so packing and organizing wouldn’t feel so much like a chore. However, not all of us can get a chance to move during the summer. Due to high demand for moving companies in San Francisco during summer, you might have to resort to moving during the colder months instead. If this is the case, then here are some helpful tips on how you can prepare for moving during the winter months.

  1. Clear the Snow

Snow-Soaked walkways and driveways can make moving difficult and stressful for moving companies in San Francisco. The movers should be able to go in and out of your house swiftly without running into an accident. Before moving day, make sure that pathways are clear of snow. You can use salt or sand to cover cement so that it will not be icy or slippery.

  1. Plan your Route

When the place where you live has been suffering from heavy snow, there is a chance that several roads will be closed. To ensure safety and timely travel, make sure that you plan your route carefully and in advance. Contact the local authorities for any planned road closure on moving day. Once you get this information, inform your movers right away so they can also adjust their travel time. At Good Green Moving, our professional staff will make sure that enough planning has been done to avoid any bad situation.

  1. Have Hot Drinks or Meals Ready

Moving will most likely take all day. So, make sure that you have enough hot food and drinks to last you for a day or two. You can boil some water in advance and have instant coffee or hot chocolate available for you, your family, and the movers as well. Keep extra coats and mittens with you at all times. The last thing you want is to get sick during the move.

  1. Monitor Weather Changes

The weather can be very unpredictable at times. One day, it’s clear skies and the next day it’s a hailstorm. Prior to the moving day, make sure that you monitor the weather in your area, the route that you will take, and your destination. This will give you enough time to prepare in case you need to move ahead of schedule or if you need to reschedule at a later date.
