Relocating your entire household in winter definitely poses some difficulties and can be more complicated than relocating when the weather is safe – the roads are slipper y, moving your items outdoors temporarily to have more space for packing is impossible and you will need to drag your boxes and bags through snow, mud, and slurry to load them onto the cargo truck. Here are some more difficulties associated with winter moves and some measures to make it all easier:
- Cover your floors – make sure to place some cardboard or foil on your floors before the loading process starts to make sure that you can keep cleaning in the empty house to the minimum;
- Don’t disconnect the heating and the electricity until the last minute – packing and moving things around the house is huge hassle anyway, don’t make the process more difficult by having to do it in cold rooms. Days are also shorter in winter, so you will need to turn your lights on early in the afternoon;
- Don’t drive the cargo truck – the roads can be difficult to navigate in winter and you will be probably exhausted after all the packing and organizing. Don’t take risks, let professionals drive your cargo truck.
