Things to Know When Moving in the Winter

Sometimes in life, circumstances necessitate that we uproot ourselves from our current location and move to a new home or city. Often, this move can come during times that are less than ideal and present additional challenges beyond the usual things that accompany a move. This is a huge reason why people try to move during more ideal seasons and avoid the winter months altogether. But if you’re one of the unlucky folks who now have to make a move during the chilliest time of the year, there are some things to be aware of from a Denver moving company.

Remove Obstacles Before Moving

Moving your entire life’s possessions during the wintertime is not a fun prospect. The idea of having to move couches and appliances while also having to walk over icy surfaces is something no one wants to think about. Moving is stressful enough, so the prospect of injuring yourself during this process is not a fun one to think about.

Yet, it is essential to keep in mind how easy it is for a person to injure themselves during a winter move seriously. Before moving any of your belongings, ensure that the walkway you will be using is free of obstacles and all snow and ice has been properly cleared. This is why seeking the services of a Denver moving company is worth the added cost, as no one wants to be out of commission for months because their move went horribly wrong.

Prep Your New Home

If you are making a move during the winter months, you will want to ensure that your new home will have heat and lights before moving in. The last thing you want to have happened is to move all of your belongings into your new house, only to realize that the energy is not turned on, making for a chilly welcome to your new pad.

Contact your utility companies the night before you begin moving in, and ensure that they will have the lights and heat turned on in time for your arrival. Moving into a new home without heat isn’t just uncomfortable; it can be hazardous depending on the current weather conditions.

Have a Backup Plan

So you have all of your moving plans in place and are confident you’ll be able to initiate them without a hitch. That’s when a major snowstorm hits and creates an enormous challenge for your moving schedule.

Whether you are hiring movers for the job or have opted for the help of friends and family, it is always a good idea to discuss the possibility of delays due to weather. In the case of a moving company, you will want to know their rescheduling policy ahead of time to save you unnecessary headaches if a serious storm does hit.

If you are thinking of making a move to the mile-high city and require moving services, whether personal or business, small or large, Eden’s moving company has you covered. If you would like to find out more about the city or have questions regarding the moving process, contact us today, and we will be happy to assist you.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
