Moving in the Snow

Moving in the snow, sleet and ice is difficult and dangerous work.  There are many precautions you need to take so that you can finish the your move safely and can enjoy a hot cup of cocoa after it.  Here’s what to do:

  • Wear Gloves – gloves will keep your hands warm so you can better grip boxes and furniture.
  • Wear Boots – boots with help keep you from slipping, and they’ll keep your feet warm.
  • Unpack Perishables First – some possessions, including plants and electronics, can be damaged by extreme cold.  Try to get them unpacked as soon as possible.
  • Use Salt – salt the path between the moving truck and the entrance you’ll be using.  Salt will melt the ice and snow, giving you far better grip while walking.
  • Use Towels Inside – if you track snow inside with you, it’s going to melt, creating a slipping hazard.  Use towels around any entrance so to prevent melt water from accumulating.
