Moving during the winter season can be challenging, especially during bad weather or snow covered ground. As we all know, winters in NE PA cannot only be unpredictable but also severe at times. The last thing you want to do is to move during a major snowstorm. However, sometimes you just have to move, and move now. So if you can’t avoid a winter move, here are a few suggestions:
Hiring professional movers is always a good idea, however it is even a better idea in the winter months. Professional movers can more efficiently pack and move you than you can generally do yourself. Driving a passenger car in the winter can be hazardous, yet alone a large rental truck. Don’t consider moving yourself in the winter month – call a professional.
Shovel and Salt
If you are unfortunate enough to actually be moving when it is snowing, please shovel the driveway and walks – it will make you and your movers’ lives easier. Also, salt any pathways prior to the move to eliminate any slick, icy spots. You don’t want someone falling, hurting themselves, and damaging a valuable item.
Don't forget the utilities
Ensure you utilities in your new residence are set-up and operating. The last thing you want to do is to move into a new home or apartment only to discover you don’t have any electricity, heat, and/or hot water.
protect the floors
Protect your interior floors (hardwood, tile, carpet, etc.) with plastic covering to ensure none of them gets damaged or dirty during the move. Winters can be especially hard on floors, with the salt and snow on driveways and walks.
maintain a positive attitude
This should really be suggestion #1. Winter moves can be especially challenging and there can be hiccups. So, the more positive your attitude the more stress-free you will be. When all else fails, a good hot chocolate or adult beverage can always take the edge off.

Add some holiday cheer over the holidays by consider these tips and suggestions if you find yourself moving over the holidays. Your holiday season doesn't have to be ruin just because you are moving. First, call Scranton Moving and schedule your move; second, consider these tips and suggestions.
Move after Christmas
Consider moving after Christmas instead of before. That period between Christmas and New Year's Day is very slow for most people and businesses. Many take off that week so pulling in family and friends to help with the move should be easily accomplished.
Maintain a Holiday Spirit
If you are able to wait until the first of the year, we would recommend you do so. While moving over the holidays is certainly possible, why complicate the holiday season with a move. Further, as you pack up all the holiday decorations, just take the extra step of packing them for the move.
Prioritizing your packing
If you are planning to move, then everything should be packed prior to Christmas and New Years. Prioritize your packing to ensure you have all the essential items readily available to unpack that you will immediately needs, such as kitchen items, everyday clothes, toiletries, etc. After than pack and unpack all optional or immediately unnecessary items such as garage, basement items, etc. Remember you can always check less immediate items packed in boxes stored in your garage and/or basement indefinitely or until you need them. Of course, Scranton Moving can help you with both the packing and unpacking chores using one of our packing service levels.
But... if you must move smack dab in the middle of the holidays, we recommend leaving your house decorated as you do so. That way it will still feel like you are celebrating the holiday season despite having to move during it. Pack all your decorates at the very end to ensure you still enjoy the season. And when you arrive at your new residence, immediately unpack the decorations and put up so you never miss a beat in the holiday spirit of the season.
