It can be good to schedule your moving during the winter months because it may be more economical and not as busy – although it is not without some risks. Since most people do not try to schedule their move in the colder months due to bad weather and the busy holiday season, rates for moving can be cheaper.
So if you schedule your move between the months of December through March, you may experience better rates and a more flexible schedule with your professional movers since they are not as busy during these months. This will allow you to pick the exact date and time frame for your move that will work into your schedule and busy lifestyle. So moving in winter can have its advantages, although there can be some weather related risks you should be prepared for.
THREE TIPS FOR MOVING DURING WINTER:
- Have a back-up plan for inclement weather:
Having a backup plan with your professional movers is wise, just in case a storm blows in and threatens your move. Checking into their policies during inclement weather conditions and what options are available to you, just in case you are forced to reschedule your move. Typically, if you are unable to move out then no one can move in and things are at a standstill until the weather clears out. Checking with your professional movers and their policies will be the safest route to make certain you are covered either way.
- Maintain your vehicle and plan your travel route:
If you are driving to your new destination, map out the safest travel route along major highways, should a storm hit while you are on the road. Pack your vehicle with emergency items such as blankets, ice scrapers, windshield fluid, shovels, etc. Getting your car serviced and all-weather tires installed is also a good idea.
