February may be the coldest month of the year, but it’s the warmest in our hearts! As Valentine’s Day comes around again, many new couples are considering moving in the winter to be closer to their loved ones. However, before you can snuggle up with your beloved in your new home, it is important to consider the specifics of Winter moving in Portland. Moving during the coldest month of the year can be difficult, but your expert Pacific Northwest movers at A2B Moving & Storage have put together some Winter moving tips to help Portlanders move safely this February.
Moving in the Winter Months
Love is in the air this February, and many couples are taking the “next step” by moving in together! Moving in with a partner can be a deeply satisfying experience, but before moving in the winter, you should consider the weather forecast. If you are looking to relocate in Portland this winter, then knowledge of the winter forecast for Portland, Oregon and the surrounding area will allow you the opportunity to prepare for safe travelling. Weather in the Pacific Northwest can change quickly in unexpected ways, so it is better to make a winter storm preparedness plan before starting your move. Your local moving professionals at A2B Moving & Storage recommend that you plan ahead by selecting multiple alternative routes in case of dangerous travel conditions or storms.
Before beginning your move in Portland, make sure you have serviced your vehicle. A vehicle that has been checked and serviced prior to a move helps ensure your safety. Another way to ensure your safety on the road is to pack extra items. At A2B Moving & Storage, we suggest including extra coats, winter boots, gloves, blankets, and nonperishable food items in your winter preparedness kit. In Portland, winter moving involves dealing with possible weather disturbances, so Portlanders should also check out the city’s travel safety recommendations.
We know that you’re impatient to be with your partner this Valentine’s Day, but don’t forget to prepare your new home for your arrival by turning on your utilities. Electricity and water should be set up before arrival at your new home so that you and your partner are not left unexpectedly cold this Valentine’s Day. Remember, chocolates are sweet—but quality time is sweeter. If you want to move to be with your sweetheart, then A2B Moving & Storage is ready to help!
