With the winter settling in here in Dakota County and Minnesota at large, weather may play a big role on moving day if you’re planning to move in the next few months. That’s why, as providers of local moving services for Dakota County and the surrounding areas, we’d like to discuss some of the things to consider when moving in winter. After all, the only way to have a successful move during undesirable weather is to prepare for it as much as possible and work with dependable local moving services. A local moving service thoroughly understands the weather in our area, the streets you’ll be moving to and from and how to navigate them. Here are some additional tips to consider:
Snow, Rain & Sleet
Precipitation can provide some challenges when moving, but it doesn’t have to ruin it. So if it’s raining on your moving day, don’t panic. As part of our local moving services we routinely cover items before we pack them onto the truck, so that will shield them from the rain, snow etc. If you’re experiencing snow on your moving day, a little extra work will be required. Make sure that steps and walkways are shoveled at both your current home and the location you’re moving to. Assist your local moving services in any way possible. Also remember to be patient, as it is better to go slow and be safe, especially in icy weather.
While this is not the windy city, Dakota County is no stranger to high winds. High winds are hard to prepare for but if they plague your moving day, it may change up the order things are packed, but not much more. We don’t want to have items that will easily blow over or blow away sitting outside, waiting to be loaded. Our local moving services will streamline the process, so lighter items are moved directly from the home onto the truck. Again, in windy conditions it is important to be as helpful as possible to your moving team.
Prepare Your New Home for Your Arrival
One essential point of preparation is ensuring your utilities are all set up in your new home before the big move. Winter in Minnesota can get pretty cold, especially at night. So to ensure your home is comfortable the night you move in, set up your utilities beforehand.
