By moving in the fall, it allows you to escape the summer heat and take advantage of other off-season benefits like a flexible schedule. However, autumn in Minnesota does pose some unique weather-related challenges that you’ll have to keep in mind. Here are a few things to consider:
Check the Weather
If your moving day is still a few weeks or months away, this may be difficult. However, if you are able, you should check the weather to better schedule your move. If you’re working with professional residential movers, just keep in touch with your move coordinator if a storm is in the forecast. Every Minnesota autumn sees at least a few unexpected climate events from freezing rain to ice storms so be prepared.
Take Care of Utilities
It is important your utilities are all set up in your new home before the big move. Autumn in Minnesota can get pretty chilly, especially at night. So to ensure your home is comfortable the night you move in, set up your utilities beforehand. Call your new utilities company a couple of weeks before moving day to confirm your address and start date.
Keep Essentials Near
Make sure essential items are available before, during and after your move. While this is important for any move, it is especially important for one that could be thrown off by unexpected weather. Have a separate bag of essential items at-hand including phone chargers, toiletries, spare clothes, and medicines. Make sure these stay with you and are not packed away so you can have them in case of a weather emergency. You may never need them, but they could be a lifesaver.
And, these are just a few helpful tips for your fall move. For more, contact our residential movers for more helpful information.
