Most people plan their moving dates during the summer season mostly because kids are out of school or in camps which makes it easier for parents to focus on packing the household. Also, the weather allows them to move freely and there are technically less dangers in the road, especially if moving far away. But sometimes, you get that unexpected promotion and you decide to move during the winter season. Although it is possible to do, there are a couple of things to consider before doing so.
First thing to consider is the weather. The temperature is going to drop really bad especially if you’re in Boston or moving to Boston. Best thing to do is to put aside a bunch of layers for your moving date. Layers are better as opposed to wearing one thick winter coat. You will be lifting a lot during this time and your winter coat will be in the way while you are doing so. Layers allows your body to be free, plus, if you get a little heated up while you are lifting, you can always remove one layer of clothing to get you back in the groove.
Secondly, consider packing your things the second you know when the moving date is. It is way easier to pack your stuff in advance you can be more organized, especially if you have more than one room to pack. Our advice is to dedicate an hour or two a day per room to packing. You can get a lot more done this way instead of allotting a day or two for the entire house.
Once those things are done, next thing you want to consider is your drive and this includes your path going to your vehicle. Winter season’s cold temperatures causes the driveways to ice, so you have to keep in mind to clear the path of ice and other obstacles before moving stuff to your vehicle.
