Moving in the Winter Is the Best Time to Move

When you think about moving, the last thing you think about is moving in the winter. However, while it may not seem like it, winter is actually one of the best times to move. During the winter, moving companies are not as busy since their busy season starts in spring and goes through fall.

Since it is slower, it translates to added benefits for you. First, you get your pick of the moving dates and times. You also can choose to add additional movers with a moving package upgrade to make loading and unloading the truck go faster.

Next, if you have a tight moving schedule, like where you need to put your stuff into storage due to a week overlap between moving out of your current home and being able to move into your new home, your movers can help customize your move easier. They can help you find the right storage solutions needed until you are ready to move in.

Additionally, many moving companies offer slightly lower rates in the winter months or other specials to help save on your moving costs. If you are moving long-distance, you can also find great rates with a much better time frame on the delivery of your belongings to your new home.

As an added bonus, if you are moving into a new home or apartment, you can often find great deals on your new home since the housing market is also slower in the wintertime.

5 Tips to Make Winter Moves Easier

  1. If it snows the night before your move, take the time to clear walkways, paths, and the driveway. Put down ice melt if needed to keep these areas free of ice and safe to walk on.
  2. Turn down the thermostat on your furnace. Doors will be opened and closed most of the day allowing cold air into the home. The last thing you want is your furnace constantly running. If you have a fireplace or woodstove, make a fire to help heat the home on moving day.
  3. Discuss alternative plans with your moving company. The weather can change unexpectedly in winter. There could be a major blizzard the day before your move which leaves unplowed roads, tons of snow, and closures all over town. Having a backup plan in place is a good idea should you need to adjust your moving day.
  4. Keep in mind road conditions can impact how much time it will take to get you moved locally. Our drivers want to ensure your items arrive safe and sound, so will take their time, if needed, should road conditions be slick and icy.
  5. Rescheduling of moves does not occur that often due to weather. In some cases, we may need to adjust the arrival time or other minor changes, while still completing your move on the same day. We understand you have closing dates, deadlines, and other time constraints.

    The team of movers was on time, friendly, and professional. The move chief lent me some large boxes at no cost. In no time, my stuff was in my new apartment. I've employed Sue Land Moving before, and I will employ them again.
