    Planning to move to winter and cooler months means that we are facing different challenges than during the warmer months of the year. That does not mean, however, that you should not move. People at Calgary and across HRM are moving all year round, and here for Calgary movers, we help them move around all year round.

    Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to winter travel in the Calgary area.

    # 1 Keep a Clear Road Where You Move and Move Again

    It is a good idea to make sure that your walkway or path to your apartment or condo building is free of snow and ice. This may mean pulling out a shovel and moving some of those white objects around, but it will save time over time. It will also ensure that self-paced or our own transporters are open stable and secure.

    # 2 Have a Scoop Carpet or Something to Lay Down on Your Goal

    Mud, ice, and saltwater can be traced when traveling during the colder months. It is a good idea to have a rug in the dump hall, an old carpet, or large pieces of cardboard to place them on the floor to protect the floor. It is not easy for our travelers to take off their shoes every time they bring something, so protecting your floor with something ensures that your new home stays clean and we can do the job quickly and safely.

    # 3 Have a House Planting Plan

    If you move in mid-July or August there is little chance that your indoor plants will have difficulty surviving from point A to point B, however during the cool autumn and winter months, this is a different story. We suggest that you make sure you can transport your plants inside a warm car. So if you need more space plan by borrowing a larger van or taking more than one trip with your plants.

    # 4 Think it will take longer than expected

    Adverse road conditions, changing temperatures, and things outside of us and your control can reduce how long it takes to complete a full movement during the cool months. It is better to think that it will take longer to move than expected. So allow some real-time to load, move, and unload your items.

    # 5 Have an emergency plan in case of severe weather

    It does not happen very often, but sometimes the weather can change in an instant. There is always the risk of adverse weather conditions that will prevent your movement from happening on the day you plan. Keep this in mind and try to have a support system in case this happens to you. This could mean that you have two different days off and make sure you do not leave your transit until the last day of the month when you need to leave.
