Moving is a tiresome process which perfectly shows there is no such thing as being perfectly prepared. If you think , I sell my property fast then quickly move in to an apartment" then you might be facing some stressful and troublesome times. Let's learn what to pay attention to when moving and on some of the extra costs that you may not count with.
This may be a cost you may not count with, but in real if you plan to move out fast (or you are forced to) then you need to get prepared to be able to move real fast. Therefore rent out a storage place for all the things and furniture which you don't necessarily need. You will be shocked to find how easier this will make moving. Also, it'll be much easier for any moving company to collect your things from one particular storage place. There are companies which are prepared to store your products for a while and they even offer logistics and delivering the products you would like to get back to the address you provide them.
There is two key things you need during winter: heating and internet. This means you will need to be sure that electricity and internet is fixed by the time you move in. Even if you eventually heat with gas you can buy electric heaters which are capable to heat up one room. With that in mind, get prepared to transfer all your utilities well on time. This way if you must cancel then re-contract with any energy provider you will have time for doing so.
Moving trucks are definitely cold and if you are in an area where winter is really cold, then you need to make sure all those belongings which don't react well to cold are very well packed and wrapped so that they don't freeze at least for a few hours.
But be prepared having to postpone your moving if the winter is harsh in your region. Winter is not bad for moving but winter storms are. Always make sure your moving is as peaceful as possible including the weather conditions. Make sure you prearrange the costs and agree on all conditions.
Moving during winter is harsh but arriving in a house or apartment which is cold as hell is even worse. Make sure to go to your new place a few hours before moving and start the heating.
These really don't like cold or freezing cold. If possible use your own car and transport them yourself.
This is not the time to look stylish. Apply clothes in layers so that you can take something off if you need to move all too much.
