Winter Moving Tips

Moving during the winter months can be difficult, notably during severe weather or snow-covered ground.  Cincinnati Moving know that winters in SW OH can be unpredictable and severe at times.   The last thing you want to do is to relocate homes and businesses during a major snowstorm.  But, occasionally you just have to move, and move now.  If this is the case –  you can’t avoid a winter move – here are a few tips:


​Hiring a professional moving company is always a great idea, however, it is even a better thought during the winter season.  Professional movers can more efficiently pack, load, unload, and unpack than you can generally do yourself.  Driving a regular vehicle in the winter can be dangerous, however, a large rental truck is even more hazardous.   Please don’t contemplate moving in the winter season – call the professional movers at Paterson Moving.


​If your luck has that you are actually moving when it is snowing, please shovel the walks and driveway  – if will make you and your movers’ jobs easier.  Also, salt any walkways before the move to melt any slick, icy spots.   You want to avoid someone falling, injuring themselves, and breaking a valuable item


​Protect your interior floors, such as hardwood, tile, carpet, etc. with tarps to ensure none of them get dirty or damage during the move.  Winters can be really hard on floors, with the snow and salt on the driveways and walks. ​


 Double-check that your utilities in your new residence are functioning.  The last thing you want to is to move into a new apartment or home only to learn you don’t have any heat, electricity, and/or hot water.


​This should really be tip #1.  Winter moves can be especially daunting and there can be issues.  So, the more positive the attitude you maintain, the more stress-free the move will be.   And when all else fails, a quality hot chocolate or cocktail can always take the edge off.
