What聽are the two biggest advantages for moving during the winter?

The busy season for the moving industry is summer,聽with a peak in September (thanks to college students). As a result, there are far fewer people聽looking for moving services in winter. Consequently, companies have the tendency to reduce their prices or offer special promotions.聽AtH2H movers we聽offer one of the lowest moving prices in the winter!

If you鈥檙e going to move in winter without the aid of professionals, here are ten additional things you鈥檒l need to remember:9czEp5aRi

#1聽Warmth and light

Make sure the heater in your vehicle is working properly and bring along additional warm clothing and drinks.聽Since days are shorter during winter, ensure all your lights are working before you take off.

#2 Weather

It鈥檚 unadvisable to start your trip if the weather forecast is stormy. Check your local weather report聽and match your move to a day with a decent forecast.

#3 Prepare for the unexpected

When you鈥檙e moving in winter the first thing you need to prepare is your vehicle鈥攑articularly for longer-distance moves. Take it in for a tune-up in advance to avoid mechanical issues. In addition to checking the weather, plan a聽route with a high number of lodging options in case of聽an unexpected snow storm.

Keep a list of emergency contacts on paper. Phones lose their charge rapidly in the cold. Having your contacts handy on paper is a good backup.

Prepare for unexpected snow/ice by packing聽a shovel, salt or sand (kitty litter also helps), plus car maintenance tools and tire chains.

Save a few cardboard boxes when it鈥檚 time to load up鈥攂reak them down and lay them down on the ground to form a pathway to and from your car to the house.聽This will help you avoid slips and keep the floors cleaner as you go in and out of the house.聽Save the cardboard for use聽when you unload in your new place.

#4 Drive safely

Driving in winter can be聽dangerous.聽Drive slowly and stay聽constantly alert!
