Tip No. 1 – Wear gloves!

Anyone who carries and transports furniture and furnishings outdoors in cold temperatures quickly realizes how uncomfortable the cold feels on their hands – their fingers become increasingly difficult to move, turn red, and hurt.

Take precautions and provide special winter work gloves – latex, nitrile, leather, or vinyl materials. These special gloves provide a high level of comfort and protection from cold down to -30° Celsius.

Tip No. 2 – Don’t slip!

In autumn and winter, the days are much shorter – and colder! Make sure footpaths and pathways leading to your property have been cleared and, if necessary, hardened to prevent slips. Are removal lorries fitted with winter tires? You may also need to have snow chains fitted. Find out in advance about the relevant regulations from local authorities in your area.

Put your trust in an established removal company with trained drivers who, thanks to their many years of experience, can safely deliver lorries and your valuable removal goods to their destination even in difficult conditions – and are comprehensively insured.

Tip No. 3 – Stay Flexible!

Due to the harsh weather conditions, which can change rapidly even in the cold season, you must remain flexible. Always plan a reasonable time buffer and start walking immediately after sunrise so that no time is wasted.

Please also note that in the event of a snowstorm or snow-covered roads, travel may be delayed by a day or more.

Inform your employer accordingly and apply for adequate leave. Perhaps you are entitled to special leave?

In cold weather, colds also become more frequent, meaning removal assistants may be absent at short notice.

Tip No. 4 – Inform neighbors!

It is always a good idea to give advance notice of any move to your neighbors in the interest of peace.

After all, removing stairs is noisy, messy, and can be annoying – especially on weekends and early in the morning or late in the evening.

Especially in autumn or winter, cold air enters the house through open flats and front doors – and causes additional discomfort.

Inform your neighbors about the planned move in good time – perhaps a neighbor or two will offer help!

Tip No. 5 – Attention, plants, and technology!

Especially when transporting plants and sensitive technology such as hi-fi equipment, home appliances, televisions, or computers, you should ensure that these items are carefully packed and protected from the cold.

Transport the young plants separately in a vehicle that can be heated so that the new shoots are not damaged and everything gets to the new flat or house undamaged and safe.

Tip No. 6 – Don’t forget to preheat!

Before moving into your new home, familiarize yourself with the conditions there. Are water, electricity, and heating working?

Test the infrastructure, report problems to property management, and initiate repairs at an early stage.

Especially in cold weather, the new property will be extremely cold when empty.

Make sure the radiators are ventilated and the new rooms are properly heated a day or 2 in advance!

Tip No. 7 – Provide tea and mulled wine!

Whether you’re moving with the help of friends and family or hired professional removalist helpers – have hot beverages like tea and coffee or hot soups to cheer up the mood, especially in cold temperatures.

So when you have old utensils available in the kitchen, it is best to prepare a corresponding thermos flask.

And once they have successfully moved into their new flat or house, not only their helpers but also their new neighbors are delighted to be invited to enjoy a delicious hot wine or toast together.
