Tips on Moving During the Winter Months From Eden’s Moving Services

Living in Colorado, we work with many customers who have to move during some unpredictable winter weather. Moving is always a challenge, but add in some snow, ice, wind, and hail, and you have even more. 

At Eden’s, we’re well-versed in providing a successful chilly-month moving experience for the locals, even if they’re moving long-distance. Here are our top three tips on moving during the harsh winter months. 

Clean off your driveway and walking areas

Be sure to clean off the driveway (and all areas where movers will need to pass) of debris, boxes, items, and anything that could pose a threat to easy movement. However, when it’s winter, you may need to go a step further. 

Clearing your driveway and all outdoor walking areas of snow and ice will help tremendously. Doing so will further ensure you and your movers are safe and can move confidently. When burdened with holding boxes and large objects, we’re already supporting more than usual, so it’s essential to keep both the belongings and the person carrying them out of harm’s way as much as possible.

With a clear and easy walking area, you achieve a faster, smoother, more reliable move. And the bonus of no broken belongings or bones. 

Do you like US history crab and baseball? Well, how about moving to Maryland?

Expect delays

You may get a quote with specific times and dates for your move, and in almost every case, those will be honored by our Denver moving company. But, during the winter months, there may be some unforeseen complications. And, if you live in Colorado, you know that that winter-month weather can even move into spring. 

Don’t set yourself up for disappointment. Sometimes you need to be flexible during this time. With an array of bizarre weather patterns, the one thing you can count on is the probability of delays. Unfortunately, that comes with the territory when you move during the winter. 

Eden always gives the best service possible, and we will openly communicate our expectations based on the weather. We have been moving in Colorado for decades and have learned that understanding that weather and traffic can hold up a move will contribute to less stress and frustration. So, if possible, be prepared for some setbacks. We will do our best to stay on time, but the safety of your move and all involved with it will always take priority. 

Don’t pack your winter gear.

We’ve seen this happen more times than you’d believe. Customers pack up all of their winter gear, thinking the bad weather is behind us, and then we get hit with a winter storm. Leave out your shovels, your hats and gloves, and some winter clothes to make your moving day as comfortable as it can be, even if we’ve had two weeks of 70-degree weather. You truly never know what late winter and early spring will push our way, and it’s better to be over-prepared than under-prepared. 

The takeaway

Your winter move may be more difficult than your summer move, but having the right mindset and taking measures that create a safe and comfortable moving experience will contribute to your move’s success.

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!!

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.
