A winter move can be a strategy for homeowners or business owners looking to find the best deal on moving. Winter is often the off-season for moving and storage companies so you’ll be more likely to have your pick as everyone will be more available.
There are a lot of elements that need to go smoothly for a seamless winter relocation in Canada. The weather can be difficult to plan around and freezing temperatures mean you don’t want anyone waiting out in the cold. Here are some considerations to prepare for your winter move:
- Prepare for Anything
- Expect Delays
- Pack Well in Advance
- Protect Furniture from Weather
- Stock Car with Essentials
Be Prepared for the Unexpected
Winters in Canada and Manitoba can mean some of the harshest weather anywhere in the world. With wind storms that cause temperatures to plummet, it’s inevitable that your move will face some unexpected hurdles at some point.
Delays are Inevitable
The key to making sure you have a good experience is to be patient and prepared for when delays occur. Between harsh storms and variable road conditions, anything can cause a delay. A great moving and storage company will do its best to keep you posted on any hurdles that may arise.
Pack in Advance
By packing your furniture well in advance, you won’t have to rush at the last minute. Making hasty trips to and from the store to get packing materials won’t be easy during a winter storm. Making sure your furniture is sorted, packed, and ready to be loaded onto the truck is a great way to ensure the local or long-distance relocation goes smoothly.
Keep Furniture Safe from Weather
Planning a winter relocation can mean battling the elements to stay on track. By making sure your furniture is packaged safely, you’ll reduce the chance of damage along the way.

Pack Your Car with Essentials
Whether you’re planning a local, long-distance, or nationwide move, it’s imperative that you have your vehicle stocked with emergency supplies. In a harsh environment like Canada, you can never be too prepared for a breakdown. Here are some supplies to consider:
- Warm Blankets
- Satellite Phone
- Snacks and Water
- Shovel or Traction Device
