Moving in Snow?
Foul weather is a fact of life in Toronto, but we don’t let it get the best of us. Residential home Moving during the Canadian winter is unpleasant, but often times is unavoidable. Snow can easily turn what is already a stressful time into a nightmare, but you shouldn’t have to worry.

We lace up our boots, zip up our parkas and get to work like everybody else does. We understand that you have deadlines and obligations, and we’re there to help you meet them even if it’s nasty outside. As long as it is reasonably safe outside, Cargo Cabbie movers are on the road moving Toronto. However, snow can make things more dangerous, and it definitely makes things more slow, so here are a few tips you can use to make moving in the snow a better experience.
Be prepared, three important moving tips to help your move go smoother
Try to secure parking!
If you’re moving to a house with on street parking, finding a space for a large truck can be a headache in Toronto. Even in good weather! with snow on the ground it’s far worse. Even though nobody wants to give up their sweet parking space when the snow up to your knees, talk to your neighbors. Most people are understanding and will happily move for a little bit while we get you out of your old home or into your new. The closer we can get the truck to the moving locations, the safer and faster it is for us and can dramatically reduce the cost to you. If you have a driveway that’s great! But…
Making sure your driveway and walkways to your house are shoveled out ahead of time is another way to save you a lot of money. Each crew we send out in the winter has shovels and tools to do it ourselves, and we are happy to! But it also adds a lot of time to your bill that isn’t spent moving. If you are unable to do it yourself you can consider hiring some neighborhood kids to do it for you. This way, you save yourself a lot of time and money while teaching the next generation of citizens valuable lessons in hard work and responsibility.
Hire a sitter!
A lot of folks who are moving into their first house are doing so because they’ve just had a baby or need more space for their growing children. If you have young children, or pets who are sensitive to the cold you might want to consider letting the grandparents take them or hiring a sitter for the day. While we are moving, we have to keep your door open most of the time which can quickly turn your warm home into a freezer. If you don’t want to rack up a huge heating bill trying to keep your house warm while the door is wide open, send the kids away for a bit so they don’t catch cold. Same with sensitive pets. Ask a friend to watch them for a day so you can focus on getting into your new home instead of worrying about them the whole time.
These three simple tips can go a long way to saving you time and money, and making your winter move as pleasant as possible. Bad weather can make a mess out of most things, and even though it may slow us down we don’t let it stop us. After all, we’re Canadian. We’re used to this sorta thing.
