Follow the weather reports

If you don’t have strict dates for your upcoming move, periodically keep an eye on the weather reports and check the map on a daily basis for any approaching storms. Also check the traffic reports, identify the roads that have stalled traffic and finally plan your traffic route to a new apartment. Sometimes if the weather condition isn’t good, it’s better to stop and rest until the weather condition changes.

Keep the winter tools handy

Keep winter items such as an ice scraper, shovel, salt and winter accessories like gloves and hats along with you in the car. Salt melts the ice, it can be thrown on the icy sidewalk leading to your apartment to keep you and your fellow movers safe. If there is a lot of snow on the ground, you may have to dig a path to your new apartment when you arrive.

Service your vehicle

Even you’ve hired a mover, still you might be driving in your own personal car to your new home. Automobiles are quite sensitive when it comes to cold weather, so it’s important that you’re your vehicle is well maintained. Ensure that appropriate tires are fixed and the fuel tank is close to the top.

Regulate body temperature
