Tips for Moving House in Winter

When conducting our waste collection in Edinburgh we see all sorts of reasons for the need for our quality skip hire; from a garden clear out to moving house, there are so many reasons for needing a skip. When it comes to moving house, there are all sorts of potential complications that can occur in winter, so to help you out with the move we thought we would provide you with some handy hints to give you hand on your journey!

Make Sure You Plan Ahead

With every house move there is a possibility (and quite often, probability) that something can go a teensy bit wrong! There are all sorts of reasons why your move time may be extended, through nobody’s fault. As such, one smart idea is to pack yourself a packed lunch just in case you are unable to pop to a garage or make anything in your new abode. Equally, it can be a good idea to write yourself a list of emergency contacts so that you have a back-up plan should anything occur.

Take the Weather into Consideration

When it comes to autumn and winter, there is no guaranteeing what the weather is going to do; even looking out of the window isn’t indication of what it may be like in an hour! With that in mind, make sure you wrap up warm and pack some extra layers in case the winter bites. The weather in winter can be a bit extreme – particularly when it comes to wind, rain or, dare we say it… snow – therefore make sure you have waterproofs as well as the obligatory hat and gloves, because you are bound to regret it if you don’t!

Think About Your Pets

A move can be difficult on a pet, particularly when the weather is playing up. Make sure you help to keep them warm, particularly as moving home can be a fairly lengthy process. A good idea to bear in mind is potentially leaving them with a family member so that they don’t have to suffer the hassle of constantly being in the way!

If you are in the position of moving house this winter, make sure you plan ahead! The weather is guaranteed to be a nuisance, so don’t let it rain on your parade.
