If you’re moving to the Tri-State Area from a warmer climate, you’ve probably heard your share of horror stories about winter conditions. Some of these tales are true, and some probably aren’t, but the good news is that with proper preparation, you can get through any winter safely and happily. Your premier Tri-State movers at Morgan Manhattan have put together a list of need-to-know tips for moving to a colder, snowier climate. This winter, be sure that you:
  • Invest in a Snow Blower: A snow blower can be a helpful time-saver on those rushed mornings when you have to move four inches of snow! You should especially consider purchasing one if you have a heart condition or a medical problem that shoveling snow could trigger.
  • Weatherproof Home: You can seal warm air inside of your house with something as simple as bubble wrap. This will save your thermostat the effort, and leave more money in your pocket when your heat bill arrives.
  • Reset Fans: Fans aren’t only useful during hot summers! Set your ceiling fan to rotate clockwise and push warm air back down towards you.
  • Make an Emergency Kit for Your Home/Car: You’ll probably never need it, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. Include necessities such as water, non-perishable food, spare batteries, blankets, flares, and kitty litter (in case your tires get stuck in the snow).
