We can’t always choose the most ideal time to move. Sometimes the home of our dreams pops up in the dead of winter. Or, we may have a sudden change of jobs or a living situation that requires an immediate move. This time of year in Minneapolis, the harsh winter weather can create some difficult obstacles when it comes to moving, from ice and snow to the frigid cold. It is important to consider hiring the professionals to ensure your winter move goes as smoothly as possible. When you need professional moving in Minneapolis, no matter the season, we want you to know you can trust 1st Choice Movers for all of your moving needs, but especially your winter moving needs. As the trusted name in moving, we would like to provide you with some tips in case you find yourself moving before springtime.
Hire the Professionals
Hiring professionals to help assist you with your move is always a good idea, but especially smart in the winter months. If you are inexperienced driving a moving truck or carrying boxes on possibly icy sidewalks, it’s best to turn over your move to the moving professionals. In winter, with all the ice and snow, driving a moving truck can become far more tricky than expected. Our team of moving professionals, however, are experienced in driving in all kinds of winter weather conditions. And, with our extensive experience with the actual carrying of boxes, we are able to keep your packed possessions safe. In addition to being great at winter moves, there are so many other reasons to hire the professionals at 1st Choice Movers like:
- Mid-month discounts
- Free estimates
- Our Moving Box Program
We are also currently offering a winter discount, all season long, through the end of February! Contact us for more details.
When Possible, Start Early
During the winter, daylight hours become far shorter. Try to take advantage of as many daylight hours as possible. Even when you have a team of moving professionals helping you, it’s still a good idea to have your moving completed before it starts getting dark. This way, you can stay safer and keep warmer as the temperatures begin to dip when the sun goes down.
Keep an Eye on the Weather
In the days and weeks leading up to your big move, keep an eye on the weather. Being aware of any upcoming nasty weather can help you avoid moving during a winter storm. We will try our best to keep your move on schedule but sometimes in particularly bad weather, it could be too dangerous to continue a move as planned.
Prepare Your Home
Our team of professionals can put down protective covering in your home to avoid dirtying your floors. However, if you choose a different route, be sure to consider investing in floor covering to keep ice, salt and dirt from being tracked into your home.
The idea of moving during the cold of winter can be a pretty miserable one, but if you follow these great tips, you’ll be cozy in your new home in no time. If it looks like you will be moving during the winter and would like to avoid the messes and stresses that come along with it, be sure to call on 1st Choice Movers professional moving in Minneapolis.
