Winter will be here before you know it and if you have a big move coming up, you may be concerned. Moving in the winter is certainly not ideal, but it’s definitely still possible. With the proper planning and right coordination, you can successfully relocate even when the weather outside is frightful. But to help you plan your move, here are a few tips to help you relocate in the cold weather.


Be flexible: Unfortunately, the weather is not completely predictable during the winter months. It’s important to keep an eye on the weather forecast in the weeks and days leading up to the big move. If there is a huge storm expected, you may want to try to reschedule your move. Moving days or even the timing of the move can be helpful and sometimes necessary with the cold weather. While it’s not ideal, you want to be sure you’re able to be flexible if needed.


Allow extra time: One of the best things you can do for yourself when moving in the winter is to give yourself extra time. Extra time is important in two areas: packing and traveling. You need to start packing sooner rather than later, especially with the average U.S. household having 300,000 items in it. Packing well in advance will help ensure you’re ready come moving day. Additionally, you should give yourself extra traveling time. If you told your boss you’d be at work on a certain Monday, try not to plan your move for the weekend right before. Giving yourself extra time when packing and moving can allow for flexibility if needed.


Hire a moving company: While hiring local moving services is always a good idea, it’s an absolute must in the colder weather. When the temperature is dropping, it’s crucial to get your belongings moved as quickly as possible. Fortunately, local movers can make this happen. If your belongings are packed and ready to go, the movers can quickly load them, transport them, and unload them at your new place. Hiring local moving services will allow you to focus on other important tasks, like making sure the heat is on at your new home.


Moving is an exciting, yet stressful, time. So when you’re planning your upcoming relocation, keep these tips in mind to make it as easy as possible.
