You wake up on Moving Day to find your yard and driveway covered in ice and snow. The schools and government buildings in your area are closed due to a winter storm warning. The moving truck is scheduled to arrive at 9:00am.
Our drivers and packing crews will make every effort to arrive at your residence on time. However, the accumulation of ice and snow, may impact their ability to access your neighborhood and driveway. If we need to delay our start time on Moving Day, a customer service coordinator will notify you and work with you to reschedule all moving services, as soon as possible.
Here are some other things to keep in mind when facing severe winter weather on Moving Day:
- If your driveway is covered in ice and snow, it will be helpful to the drivers if you cleared a path to your doorway, before they arrived. The packing crew may clear additional paths into your home to move boxes and carry your belongings.
- While the movers are moving items in or out of your home, your front door will be wide open. They will put floor coverings down to protect your hardwood floors and carpeting. Make sure you are dressed warmly so that you do not get too chilled on moving day.
- When exposed to freezing temperatures, bottled liquids and beverages can freeze and break. Therefore, we suggest that you do not pack any bottled liquids or (if you must) keep all liquids separate from your other belongings.
- Freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on electronics and appliances; causing pipes to crack and explode. Please see our post on Can I leave my Appliances out in the Cold to learn how to prevent such damage.
In all, our drivers will use their best discretion on Moving Day. Our customer service team will keep you informed should any changes occur to your Moving Day schedule due to winter weather.
