Tips for Moving During the Winter in the Midwest
How to Make Your Winter Move in Michigan, Ohio, or Indiana Easier
Moving is more common from late spring through early fall, so choosing to make a winter move can have plenty of benefits. You’re more likely to get a lower price from a company that’s glad to have your business, and you’re more likely to get the move date that you want when you book during a slower season. But if you’re making your winter move in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, or other states with true winter weather, you should plan ahead to make the experience safe and healthy for all involved.
Plan Your Winter Move Ahead of Time
The biggest decision you’ll make when planning your move is which movers to partner with. If you’re moving in the winter, you’ll want a local company that understands the environment and the climate, with moving teams that know how to navigate the weather. University Moving and Storage is based in Michigan, with experienced teams across the Midwest. We have the experience, the tools, and the know-how to get your winter move done right.
For a safe move in Michigan, Ohio, or Indiana, planning ahead is key. If you’re moving during snowy weather, take the time to care for any outside walkway that will be used during your move each time it snows. It’s no good to shovel the night before and leave weeks of ice behind! You can also put down salt and even cat litter to increase traction on any outdoor walkways.
You’ll also want to make a plan for kids, pets, and anyone who will be in the house during the move. Our movers are quick, but with doors opening and team members moving around the home, it’s likely to be chilly in your old home as you move out and your new home as you move in. For kids, seniors, and other sensitive family members, have a plan in place to keep them warm and safe, and to keep pets out from underfoot.
Hire Experienced Movers
An experienced team that helps you move in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana will be in touch with you in the days leading up to your move date to help you keep an eye on the weather and determine if any adjustments need to be made in your moving plan. While University Moving and Storage does its absolute best to honor each move date we schedule, we’re also experienced enough to know how much snowfall is too much, or how much wind or ice will truly put our trucks, our team, and your household at risk. We will proactively reach out to you to be sure that your winter move date will be safe.
It’s also important to protect the floors in your old home and new home. That’s why our team uses carpet protectors and other tools so that salt and snow don’t get tracked throughout your home. We know that ensuring your satisfaction means completing a clean, smooth, stress-free move, and we come prepared with the tools and resources to help us do that.
