Moving in any season is a chore but add cold temps, ice and snow and the task can be even more daunting. If you are moving this winter season I have some tips that can help you make your move during the winter months a little easier.

1. Be sure to have enough warm clothes with you - don't pack them. If you are moving from a warm climate to a cold one this can be even more important in case your items get delayed!
 
2. Make sure your car is serviced before the move - you don't want to break down in cold weather. A good idea for anyone who lives in cold climates is to keep an emergency 'survival' kit in your car that has canned food, bottled water, a first-aid kit and flashlights.

3. Keep plants in the passenger area of the vehicle or store them in plastic bags with holes punched for air.
 
4. Keep in mind that your belongings will be in a cold moving van for a long time, so plan accordingly. Precautions should be taken to protect expensive electronics, anything with liquid that can freeze or anything that might be damaged due to the cold.

5. In case of inclement weather be sure to clear your sidewalk, driveways and walkways of ice and snow. Remember that any accident on your property could become your liability.
