Fayetteville, NC movers know that moving is not an easy task. What can make the task even more difficult?
One word, Weather!
At Two Men and a Truck of Fayetteville, we work hard to insure that all of our moves are not only on-time but that we keep your cargo safe. Whether it be the old kitchen table you inherited to the life size Cam Newton cut out you just purchased. Here are some tips on moving in the winter.
Moving Trucks must be driven with more care than a car especially in frosty or icy conditions. Not only for the stability of the vehicle, but also the stability of the items inside. You should also make sure your vehicle is maintained and ready for the winter months. Our trucks are regularly maintained to insure they are in prime shape for all weather conditions.
Stay on top of weather changes. We nor you want to be caught in the middle of a busy road like Skibo during a huge snowstorm, we attempt to make the moves when the conditions are optimal, although we have been known to brave the weather to make move happen on time!
Always carry a shovel to help dig you out of murky situations, sun as snow drifts. Its also important to carry an ice removal tool. In the most dire moments, we have found that a CD case will work as well but you risk damaging it. Having the right tools can prevent mishaps.
Whether it is Fayetteville’s award-winning moving company, Two Men and a Truck, moving a huge haul or you and your friends carrying a smaller load, the last thing you want is damaged carpets due to wet or muddy feet. Cover those floors and carpets with plastic or boxes to keep them from getting ruined.
Often forgotten in a move are plants and how to car for them in a move. On one hand, you don’t want them spilling out, but on the other you don’t want them dying. The best way is to keep plants in the passenger area of the vehicle or punch holes in plastic bags to continue providing them with air.
Nobody likes moving, especially in the cold winter weather that is ahead. Remember, we are always here to help make your move as easy as possible. From customer service to the time your items are in your new home, Two Men and a Truck will be right there.
