5 Tips for a Winter Move

Winter is here and many people like to stay inside by the fireplace when it’s cold outside. This means that a move during the middle of the winter and being outside in the cold can seem like a nightmare.  Here are some things you can do to make a winter move a little easier on everyone involved.

Take Advantage of Daylight

Since it gets dark so much earlier in the winter, you might be lacking in daylight hours during your move. Take advantage of the daytime hours and get started with packing early in the day so that you can call it a night fairly early before it gets too dark. Finishings early will help you stay safer since you won’t have to worry about taking loads outside when it’s slippery and dark. Plus, the temperatures are sure to be more comfortable during the daytime hours as well.

Wear Layers

While you’re packing and transporting things from your home to the moving truck, think about wearing layers of clothes. You’ll need to remain warm, yet you most likely won’t have any desire to wear a big, bulky coat when you have a lot of work to do. Dressing in layers will enable you to remain warm without being as cumbersome. Also, you can remove a layer or two in the event that you get hot while you’re moving.

Ensure Utilities are Turned On

Don’t forget to have your essential utilities switched on and running in your new home. Take care of this fundamental task at least 10 days before you’re scheduled to move in just to be on the safe side. After all, wintertime is not the best time to go without electricity, heating or water even for one single day.

Pack Winter Essentials & Unload Them First

Be sure to pack a box of winter essentials for your move.  Include items such as a warm change of clothes, toiletries, snacks and easy to prepare meals.  Have this box loaded last and unloaded first so that you will have access to these items as soon as you arrive.

Don’t Forget the Hot Chocolate

Keep hot chocolate on hand! There’s nothing better than a warm beverage during the winter and hot chocolate does the trick every time.

 

Hiring a professional to assist you with moving is always a smart plan, but it can be especially smart when you’re moving during the winter months. If you have never driven a moving truck before, driving one might turn out to be more challenging than you think.  DFW Fireman Movers will be able to drive the truck in the winter weather conditions while staying safe and keeping your packed possessions safe as well.

 

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Last Minute Tasks to Do Before You Move

    Are you planning a move soon? If so, you’ve probably already made lists of what to pack, things to clean, and contacts to check in with about your new address. Have you considered those last-minute tasks that usually fall through the cracks and lead to moving day panic, though? If not, here’s your guide to getting those done before you go:

    Cancel Recurring Charges

    From magazines and newspapers to subscriptions that you don’t want to transfer to your new location, you’re sure to have multiple recurring charges that need canceling in the last days before you move. Do this a month before your move date, or as soon as you’re able to.

    Snap Photos to Make Life After the Move Easier

    The way cords connect to your electronics, the way things are supposed to be assembled or decorated – it can all be easy to forget in the chaos of a move. To keep it simple, snap photos of your larger items and collections before packing them so you can refer to those images once you’ve relocated.

    Pack a First 24 Hours Box

    Those first few hours after you move will be some of the most stressful, especially if you don’t have easy access to the things you’ll need right away. Pack a box with the following items to keep with you, so you’ll be able to get to what you need immediately:

    • Hygiene items
    • Bedding
    • Snacks
    • Garbage bags
    • Simple cleaning supplies
    • Clothing for 24-48 hours
    • Pet items
    • Favorite toys for children
    • Phones, tablets, chargers, etc.

    The most important thing to do when you’re wrapping up your move is to relax and reach out for help when you need it. When you need help bringing everything together, count on the local moving experts at DFW Fireman Movers to help you create the best possible moving experience – and make sure nothing is forgotten.

  • Moving with Your Pets

    Moving can be stressful in the best of situations. Adding pets to the equation creates a whole new list of problems that must be addressed before, during, and after you relocate. Here are some helpful tips for moving with your furry friends:

    Keep Pets Out of the Action

    Your pets don’t need to help you with the move, so don’t let them be part of the hustle and bustle of the move. Keep them in safe areas, away from the main action of moving furniture. They’ll be less frightened and remain safe from accidents this way.

    Put Your Pet’s Necessities in Your First-Night Box

    You probably know that your family will need a first-night box to access items of necessity right away once you’ve relocated. This should include your pet, too. Medications, food, favorite toys, and treats should all make it into this box, as well as a way for you to dispose of your pet’s droppings or mess appropriately.

    Touch Base with the Vet

    For families moving into a new area, you’ll need to find a new veterinarian. Contact your current provider to be sure that records are transferred or made available to you, so you can offer them to your new provider.

    Keep Your Pet Nearby but Don’t Let Them Explore

    Your pet may want to be let out of their carrier or want to stretch their legs in your new neighborhood, but they will need a few days to acclimate to their new home before this is a good idea. Let them get used to being near you in the new location – and understand that this is their new home – before letting them outdoors or into the rest of the house to explore.

    For the best experience possible, choose a moving company that is pet-friendly and understands the needs of clients with pets. At DFW Fireman Movers, we can help make your moving experience as stress-free as possible – for you and your pets!
