St. Louis Winter Moves

St. Louis Winter MovesMidwesterners have a love hate relationship with the season of winter. Winter can be a beautiful time of holiday celebrations, cozy nights, and hot cocoa. Winter also brings bitter cold, ice covered roads, and messes that follow melting snow. Winter is not the ideal time to relocate, but sometimes we don’t have control of when winter moves need to happen. We need to make the best of it. ABC Quality Moving & Storage is just the partner you need to navigate winter moves. Here are some key tips to help you overcome the challenges of St. Louis moving in winter months.

Use weather-appropriate packing materials. When packing for a move during the winter months, you need to ensure that your belongings are protected from the harsh conditions. Plastic bins and cardboard boxes are great, but they don’t protect your valuables from the cold temperature and wetness that come with snow and ice. Opt for packing materials that are waterproof, such as plastic wrap to protect your furniture and belongings from moisture and snow. Use blankets and towels to help keep your fragile items from breaking during the move. You can also choose the full-service option of having ABC Quality Moving & Storage to expertly pack and unpack your items with care.

Prepare your new place before moving. Make sure that your new house or apartment is prepped and ready for your upcoming move. Schedule an appointment with a professional HVAC technician to ensure that your new home is warm and cozy when you arrive. Clear the walkway, stairs, and driveway are cleared of snow and ice. This ensures a safe path for your moving crew and belongings.

Dress appropriately for the weather. You must dress appropriately for moving day in winter. The last thing you want is to be cold and wet during your move. Dress in layers, so that you can remove or add clothes as you see fit. Wear warm clothing, a hat, gloves, and a scarf to keep your head, hands, and neck warm. Safety boots or shoes that provide good traction are also crucial to avoid slipping on snow or ice. Investing in snowshoes will keep you from slipping on black ice during your move, making it easier and safer for you.

Don’t forget to stay hydrated and nourished. Moving can be overwhelming, but it’s essential not to forget to take care of yourself during the cold winter months. Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. It’s also important to eat a healthy meal to keep your energy level up. You can take a break from your move, warm yourself up with some hot drink or a bowl of soup. Keeping your body fueled with good nutrients will keep you going throughout the move.
