House removals in winter

Moving home at any time of year can be stressful, but winter adds some additional challenges to your move. However, with a bit of preparation and planning, it doesn't have to be any more difficult than a move at any other time of the year!

We have a few tips and some advice to help your winter removal go smoothly.

Have supplies ready

Moving during the winter months means a bit more preparation and supplies you'll need to have before moving day. British winters don't usually mean there's snow - but it can and does happen, so it is best to be prepared!

  • Before moving day, make sure you have ice melt and a shovel or broom to clear away any snow that may fall.
  • If you live on a non-public road, find out what provisions you may need to make for snow or ice removal to ensure your removal lorry can get down the road safely. 
  • Let your neighbours (both your current neighbours and your new neighbours) know your schedule, so they can be aware and move their cars before your removal takes place should conditions be poor.

Don't move in the dark!

Lightbulbs and lamps - will your new home have lighting? During the winter months, there are only a few hours of brighter daylight available, and moving in the dark isn't safe for anyone. Make sure you're covered by bringing light bulbs (find out what type you need in advance, if you can, otherwise bring a variety of fittings, types, and wattages) - if the ceiling light fixtures are being taken by the previous resident of your new home, be sure to bring floor or table lamps or utility lighting for every room in the house

Talk to your removal company

Make sure your removal company uses floor coverings at both your old and new home - even if it is just raining.

Ask your removal company about their provisions for inclement weather, and confirm your move with them the day before it is scheduled (even if the weather is clear!)

Warm up

You may want to arrange with both your current home's new residents and your new home's residents to leave heating on low - just make sure you take your meter readings when you leave and arrive!

Don't pack your hats, scarves, coats and gloves - with the doors open at both your old and new home, it will get cold and you'll appreciate being able to wrap up.

Dress in easily-removable layers, so as you move around you can easily take a layer off but still remain warm.

Make sure the kettle is easily accessible - a nice warm drink and mug to hold will help you warm up on a cold moving day.

Skilled in how they approached the task

I know that it has been a few weeks since our house move, but I feel compelled to write to say how pleased we were with how the move went.  Chris and Craig were a great team.  They worked so hard, were efficient and skilled in how they approached the task and were polite, calm, courteous and helpful at all times.  They took pride in their work and demonstrated commitment and customer focus.  If I require the services of removers again I will have no hesitation in asking for Chris and Craig.

The crew on the day were fantastic

The crew on the day were fantastic and went above and beyond my expectations.  We were not as sorted as we could have been, but they helped us in every way and made our move a complete success. I am very grateful to them and could not have asked for more.They are a credit to your company. Your team did everything I could have possibly asked of them.

All of you have supported our endeavours and difficult journey

Your brilliant service deserves recognition. The lads were brilliant and we have a small view out of the window, through boxes. We have a great deal of sorting and clearing to do but its lovely to have our own stuff back with us. All of you have supported our endeavours and difficult journey, Denise and I appreciate it so much. You have listened, laughed and encouraged al the way along. Thank you all so very much.
