Early Planning is Key

Winter moves require meticulous planning. White Glove Moving recommends starting the planning process early to account for potential weather-related delays and to secure the best moving dates. Factor in shorter daylight hours and plan accordingly to optimize daylight during the move.

Weather-Resistant Packing

Cold temperatures and potential precipitation call for weather-resistant packing. Our residential movers utilize sturdy packing materials to protect your belongings from the winter elements. Ensure that fragile items are packed with extra care to prevent damage in case of temperature fluctuations.
