Moving in winter is stressful especially when it slows you down. No one wants to deal with an over-extended relocation, but there are things you can do to help your movers be as efficient as possible. As your premier Boston local movers, the pros at RC Mason Movers have learned to maneuver relocations in winter since 1948. We know just the way you can help us make your winter move as seamless as possible.

1. Start by checking the weather—after all, being informed is how we can prevent loss of time. As long as there are no intense blizzards in sight, our Boston movers will complete your move with minimal downtime.

2. If you haven't packed already, be sure to keep temperature-sensitive items together and mark them as such. Whether it's fragile glassware that can't withstand freezing temperatures or plants that could be damaged when exposed to cold air, it's important to inform your movers about these items so we can adjust accordingly.

3. Carrying heavy boxes out of your house could be dangerous if your driveway or sidewalks are covered in ice. Protect yourself, your belongings, and your movers by taking the time before we arrive to shovel, salt, and melt the ice.

4. Walking back and forth from the truck to your house will inevitably track in snow. When it melts and becomes slushy in your doorways, it is a recipe for disaster. Putting some old blankets or towels down will help absorb the water and keep movers from slipping or dropping your belongings. Blankets will also help protect your home's floors for the new homeowners.

Moving in winter can be tough but with the help of experienced and dedicated movers like the experts at RC Mason Movers, it can be a painless and stress-free experience.
