Keep an eye out for the weather because a storm can really affect how the move goes. This is especially true in Chicago, where weather can change at moment’s notice. Weather can have a big impact on traffic so make sure to watch the traffic reports to monitor the condition of the route to your new home.
2. Prepare the supplies
Don’t pack winter supplies that can come in handy during a winter move. Leave out your shovel, ice scraper, salt, and other winter accessories like hats and gloves. These items can be lifesavers if your new home isn’t prepared for a move.
Dress in layers so you can regulate your body temperature and not overheat. Breaking a sweat in the cold from lifting and moving can leave you vulnerable to catching a cold. Layering up is also the best way to stay warm because it is more effective than wearing fewer, thicker layers.
