Winter Moving in MA can be brutal.
Awww winter moving in MA. It usually starts with a passing comment from your friend : “Don’t worry,” Your buddy tells you “you can use my truck to move next weekend.” Moving always sneaks up on us, and because we only do it once every several years, we forget how painful the process can be. It sucked in the summer, imagine how much it will suck in the winter.
That would cut it in June. Moving in January in New England is a different beast. Time and time again, I’ve seen winter moving plans completely ruined by Old Man Winter. Roads become impassible, steps become slippery, micro-fiber couches stuck to the frosty side of a Toyota.

Breaking up Ikea dressers to burn in a barrel. It’s a sorry state to see someone in. Plan accordingly. A typical small weekend move can end up taking several days. Have an alternate date set to move if a winter storm makes your first choice unavailable.
♦Make 2 uhaul reservations (you can cancel without charge).
♦ Move items into storage before weather becomes severe
♦ Cover house plants with plastic bags. This will afford you a small window of time to get tropicals from one home to another.
♦ Use carpet protector to keep your floors clean from slush and salt.
Winter moving in MA can be difficult, but it’s not impossible. With just a little bit of planning, it’ll be a hard move, but it will get finished.
