Tips to follow moving in winters

If you live in Canada, you know it’s icy weather. Think of moving in winter; stressful, isn’t it? Snowfall, chilly winds, and rain make the entire moving process ever more complex. However, if you cannot delay your move, do not worry. Here we have some valuable tips to help you move during winter.

Be Flexible

Winters in Canada are unpredictable. One day the weather is pleasant, and the other day the snow covers the entire country. Moreover, you may have to deal with hail, rain, and chilly weather. While the moving dates come close, keep checking the weather forecast to ensure you move in pleasant conditions while relocating. However, if a storm strikes your city, you can contact your movers to reschedule the date.

Confirm details with the moving company

Moving in winter has its benefits. Since winter is off-season for moving companies, you will have more choices for moving dates. Contact the movers a week before the moving date and a day or two before you move. Since winters can be unpredictable in Canada, confirming the details before the moving date arrives is better.

Label your stuff

Labeling the boxes is the best way to organize your move. It would help if you planned to ensure that everything goes according to the plan. Labeling the boxes or colour-coding them will help you figure out the items and place them in their proper places.

Take care of Your Belongings from extreme cold.

It is essential to pack your belongings properly to protect them from the cold when moving in winter. Fragile items such as glass, dinnerware, and other serving dishes may crack or break under extreme cold. Therefore, it is advisable to double-wrap them in blankets to avoid breaking and easing the moving process of fragile items. You may also unload these items from the contained in the end to prevent excessive exposure to cold.

Moreover, you can also fit these items in your car instead of the truck. It would help if you also carried electronics in your vehicle as they can easily get affected under severe cold.

Check the utilities at your new house

Nothing is worse than moving in winter to a home with a faulty light and heat system. Make sure you visit your home to recheck all the utilities before your final moving day. We recommend fixing and rechecking everything before you shift to your new home.

Prepare for extra time travel.

Since winters are harsh in Canada, and the weather is unpredictable, you must keep extra hours in your hand if something delays your move. You might experience hail or snow on your way to your home. It may cause some delays. Therefore, it is better to leave your home a few hours early to arrive at your new home on time.
