Saskatoon is a really charming and picturesque city. Its beauty can be witnessed during all the seasons. While the summer season can be really beautiful and warm, the winters in Saskatoon are brutally cold.
We know how rough a moving day could be, but if you are moving during the winter season you could end up in the ice. The conditions could be rainy, snowy, or perhaps something more severe.
Things to be mindful of when Moving to Saskatoon in the winter season:
- Hot food and drinks: Moving in winters is a daunting task and could be really discouraging. Buy hot tea or coffee to keep you warm. We all know how fatigued and drained out all the energy we would be after moving to a cold place. So make sure you have a nice place to eat nearby or a place that could deliver hot food to you when you reach.
- It’s obvious that while moving out you would pack all the heavy blankets safely in the truck, but in such a case you need to keep a thick blanket with you. Keep it in the back of your car or a place where you can easily take it in case you need it.
- Clothing and towels: The snow and weather are really chilly and wet, there could also be rain or snowstorm. Wear boots that can make you walk on ice and prepare a bag of extra clothing and towels to protect you from the cold weather when you are done moving your things.
- Protect your floor: The footwear of people that are moving your stuff can be really dirty and wet and could do a lot of damage to your floors. Instead of asking them to remove their boots, cover the floors beforehand with extra mats or plastic wraps that you could buy from a local store. You could also ask the Saskatoon Movers company to come prepared with extra rubber mats to cover the floor and wipe the dirt on it.
- Shovel: If it is not already snowing, you are really lucky, but to get rid of all the snow if you arrive during heavy snow, you need to have a shovel with you to clear off snow from the driveways and most probably the snow in front of your home because you don’t want the snow to hinder the loading and unloading process.
- Safeguard your electrical equipment and other fragile items: wrap your electrical equipment completely with plastic or bubble wrap to avoid them getting wet as the temperature would be sharply falling. Cover all fragile items between thick paper sheets or a cloth.
If you hire a moving company, keep in touch with them and make sure they maintain good communication at each level
Winters have shorter days, so plan accordingly and finish moving during daylight and be mindful of these points when moving to Saskatoon in the winter season. Winter nights can be really dark and scary so avoid delays and any chances of getting stuck in the snowstorm.
