Winter Moving Tips with Folkestad Moving Services, LLC:

  1. Start Early and Stay Warm:

Begin your winter move early in the day when temperatures are milder. This not only ensures a comfortable moving experience but also provides ample daylight for a smooth transition.

  1. Winter-Ready Supplies:

Packing for a winter move requires special attention to protect your belongings from the chill. Ensure you have winter-appropriate packing materials, including bubble wrap for added insulation and blankets to shield fragile items.

  1. Stay Hydrated:

Just like the desert heat in summer, the cold of winter can be deceptively dehydrating. Keep warm beverages on hand for you and your moving crew to stay energized and comfortable throughout the process.

  1. Efficient Inventory:

Before your move, create an inventory checklist. This ensures nothing gets left behind in the winter wonderland, and it makes unpacking a breeze.

  1. Light Up the Path:

With shorter days in winter, adequate lighting is crucial. Ensure you have portable lights or headlamps to navigate your new space, especially if you arrive in the evening.
