Preparing for a Winter Move

Many people think that moving in the brighter, warmer months is the best time to move. But an out of season move can make more sense as roads will be less busy, and planning a winter move in advance gives you plenty of time.

Preparing for a move in the winter time will take a lot of thought and preparation. You will want to ensure that you have everything you need for your big move. It’s important to follow our top 5 winter packing in order to have a safe and successful winter move.

National Van Lines 5 Winter Packing Tips

  1. Ensure you pack an essentials box in your transportation should the weather take a turn for the worse. Clothes, food, blankets, a torch and a shovel will come in handy if you find yourself stranded in between the move.
  2. Ensure your new home is set up and ready to accommodate you and your family. Choosing to move in the winter time means that you need to be prepared for the cold and ever changing weather. Before you move to your new home, make sure that the heating and electrical outlets work properly.
  3. Plan the travel route to your new home in advance and consider establishing any back up routes due to severe weather changes.
  4. Create a contact list of names and numbers who you may need to call upon in case of emergency. This list might include the number of a road safety company, a friend or family member.
