4 Reasons Why a Winter Move is a Great Idea

Many people don’t consider moving in the winter. While, we don’t get the snow, ice, or blizzards often associated with winter, the many winter holidays and the fact that it is in the middle of the school year tempt people to hold off their move. Here are some reasons a winter move is a good choice and some tips on making your winter move as safe and smooth as possible:

The Benefits of Moving in Winter

There are likely many more enjoyable ways you’d rather spend enjoying the winter rather than moving. However, a winter move does have benefits. These include:

4 Reasons Why a Winter Move is a Great Idea
  • Professional movers are more available. Trying to find movers or storage during the summer is frustrating. You won’t have that problem moving in winter. With a lower demand, professional moving companies will have more inventory of moving supplies and trucks. This will save you a lot time and stress. For added convenience, some professional Texas moving companies provide customers an all-in-one experience by offering packing services, movers, and a truck.
  • Less competition. The summer months are a popular time to move, and there is a lot of competition when buying a home. You are more likely to have less bidding on the home of your dreams during the winter months. Also, you are likely to pay 10% less for the same home if you purchase it during the winter rather than in the spring or summer.
  • A fresh start. Who doesn't like the idea of a new start? The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to start anew in a new house and neighborhood. If you have kids, the early months of the year are towards the beginning of the spring term. This time will give kids time to get familiar with their new school and make friends before summer break.
  • Cooler temperatures. While the chilly evenings of winter may make you want to cozy up to the fire, the mild, pleasant winter days make for perfect moving weather. You’ll avoid the summer heat and humidity, and with your Texas move, you’re less likely to worry about the snow that many other areas experience in winter.  It’s also a good time to spend unpacking when you’re likely be inside anyway.

Winter Moving Tips

Moving in winter poses unique challenges and special considerations than summer moves. Below are some tips for moving in winter:

  • Allow for flexibility in your schedule. During the busy winter months, holiday plans can fill-up or alter your moving plans. If you’re moving close to a holiday, plan allow extra time for traffic.
  • Double wrap glass items, electronics, and other fragile items that can crack from sudden temperature changes and extreme cold. Consider packing electronics last in your car to keep them protected.
  •  Lay down plastic sheets on the floor to protect them from mud and water that get tracked in from loading and unloading.
  • As it gets dark earlier in the winter, timing your loading and unloading is more important. Time your loading and unloading early before it gets dark. If you must load in the dark, make sure your exterior lights are on. It is also a good idea for you to have a few pairs of headlamps available for moving items after dark.
  • Keep the electricity, gas, and water on until moving day. Turn on the utilities of your new residence the day before you arrive.

Winter Moving Issues

Moving in winter can be friendly on your wallet and schedule. However, some unique pre-and post- moving issues can arise. These include:

  • The days are shorter, meaning less time to load and unload.
  • Keeping pets comfortable with the constant letting-in of outside cold air by boarding them elsewhere.
  • Poor weather can cause significant travel delays.

  • Mike Z

    I wanted to reach out and thank you and your crew for the help and work they did in my move. Your guys were professional and very positive throughout the whole move. They really put me at ease and what I thought would be very frustrating day was a good experience. They were very careful and treated my stuff with great care. When they arrived I felt we were maybe not as packed and organized as we should have been but they helped get it together and packed on the truck. I was so glad it went so smooth. Please thank the crew and please use us as a reference as we are a happy customer. My daughter had used you and we were glad she gave us your number.
