Winter can be one of the best times of year to move. If you’re trying to buy a home, it’s a buyer’s market because people who are selling their home in winter tend to want to sell it as quickly as possible. If you’re renting, landlords try to attract tenants with discounts on rent or other perks. But winter can also be one of the most stressful and hectic times of year to move. RJ Moving has some professional movers’ tips for your St. Paul move. And we’re not just professional movers, St. Paul also knows us for our packing and storage services too. We have some suggestions for how to make your St. Paul winter move smoother and safer for everyone involved – you and your professional movers.

Be sure there is somewhere that is clear of snow and ice for the professional movers to park their moving van. Even if you don’t have a driveway at your St. Paul home, make sure there is a clear space on the road for your professional movers to park. Take the time to shovel a path between where they will be parking and your home, and take extra care to make sure there is no ice.

Make sure your porch is also clear of snow, ice and debris. This is especially important for any stair-steps that are involved, so please make sure you put some salt or sand down to increase traction. RJ Moving takes the time to lay down plastic to make sure we don’t track any dirt, snow or other debris into your home and onto the floors.

And don’t neglect your new home either! The same should be done at your new St. Paul home as well. If you take the time to make your driveway, walkway and porch safer, this will make the moving process go a lot faster.
