Now that winter is fast approaching there will be some people who instead of gearing up for Christmas, will be preparing to move. Now, like weddings, moving is usually something best done in warmer temperatures with a reduced risk of snow and ice. However, life isn’t always that straightforward, and not all of us gets to choose when we move. So we’ve put together a couple of pointers to help people in Walsall get ready for the big winter move.
Be mindful of the weather
Now, there are a couple of factors to be mindful of when moving in the winter. Firstly, if there is a frost the night before, try and get out early on removals day to clear any ice and put down some grit. The removals team will feel more assured underfoot and will be able to work at their typical breakneck speed to get you moving. And secondly, if there is snow, you should prepare yourself for the possibility of delays due to treacherous road conditions, and the prospect that you may need to reschedule should the weather be that inclement. That said, Walsall saw snow in June 2020, so sometimes it can be the luck of the draw.
Have the essentials ready
Once you arrive at your new home, make sure that you know where the essentials are so you can begin the process of warming the house. First, get the heating on. Second, and this is most important, put the kettle on and make a pot of tea. If it’s gloomy outside get some lights on and you’ll soon summon the energy to start putting everything away.
