Let Richmond EZ Box help you out this wet winter. Virginia winters are wet, cold, and somewhat unpredictable. One week, we’re hit with an ice storm that sequesters us in our homes for days, and the next we’re out hiking in crisp, sunny weather. It’s part of why we love calling this magical green place home. It also makes things like moving miserable.
Moving in the winter doesn’t have to be such a drag. If you plan ahead, manage your time well, and make use of resources available to you, moving in the muck and mud of winter can be (almost) a breeze.
Start packing early
Even if your moving date isn’t until a few weeks in the future, you shouldn’t put off your packing. You never know when inclement weather will hit, and in Virginia you’ll see more wet days than dry. Set aside an hour or two every day to put things in order and create a schedule so that you are sure to stay on course.
Renting a moving container will allow you to get your packed boxes out of the home so that you don’t have to live amongst cardboard for weeks. In the winter, moving containers offer an additional bonus: you can transfer your items into the moving container whenever the weather is good. The last thing you want is to be faced with a downpour that soaks all of your belongings on moving day.
https://www.richmondezboxstorage.com/ will deliver the rented shipping container to your home so that you can fill it up at your leisure. Once you’re ready to move, we’ll pick it up and bring it to your new home. Because shipping containers are designed to survive some of the world’s worst weather, you can sleep soundly knowing that your treasures are safe. You’ll be able to prolong your packing to work around Mother Nature’s schedule, avoid the cardboard box clutter, and have your belongings ready for immediate pickup with one easy service.
The weather doesn’t care what your move-in day is. Make sure that you have your packing ready and prepared in order to keep the time you spend in cold winter weather to a minimum. Not only will it keep your items safe from the rain, it’ll keep you from getting soaked and catching a cold during this busy time.
(Pro tip: moving containers will alleviate the stress of having to hire movers, checking off one major item from your holiday moving to-do list.)
If you live in a colder area, make sure that you are staying safe on the roads. If you’ve rented your own moving vehicle, you might be driving a large truck for the very first time. This task is difficult enough by itself and nearly impossible on icy roads. Make smart choices on the road. If you’re uncomfortable driving a large vehicle, you can opt for a moving container, and we’ll do the driving for you.
Moving during the winter may not be ideal, but it doesn’t have to be awful. Don’t do it alone. Contact EZ Box Richmond, and we’ll help make your move easy.
