Winter Moving Tips From The Oldest Moving Company In Boston

Humboldt Storage and Moving Provides Suggestions for Relocating During Winter

Online PR News – 07-January-2013 – Boston, MA – Humboldt Storage and Moving is oldest moving company in Boston so winter moves are nothing new. The United Van Lines Agent in Boston has handled over 100-years worth of difficult moves in tricky winter weather. Below are a few very important details to consider when planning a move during the snowy months ahead.

Be ready: There are so many details and items to ready inside a home during a move, most forget to prepare the outside of a home for the moving company. This is particularly important when there is snow on the ground. Taking a little time to shovel the driveway and put sand down on walkways to prevent slipping can make the day go much easier and safer.

Check access points: Large amounts of snow can change access to roads; blocking or making it difficult for large moving trucks to maneuver. If access to a road may be restricted be certain to communicate with the moving company so they may prepare accordingly and perhaps send smaller shuttle trucks.

Keep the date: Even when there is a large snowstorm the night before a move, most reliable moving companies will strive to keep the date scheduled for relocation. Plan on movers showing up if access is not too restricted and precautions can be taken to protect the inside of the home and get items safely on the truck.

Manage personal expectations: Moving companies will work diligently to transport items on dates scheduled to stay on track for customers as well as themselves. However, know delays can happen after goods have been loaded on the moving truck. If personal items are being transported across country a snowstorm in the Midwest may delay delivery by a day or two. Most dependable moving companies will stay in touch to keep customers apprised of arrival times.
