Moving during the harsh New England winter can be tough. Luckily, we had a reasonably mild December, but there is snow and brutally cold weather on the horizon. If you are moving to Boston (or the surrounding area) this January, there are some things that you need to do! This handy guide will help get you on the right track to a successful move.
Keep Things Flexible
One of the most important rules to follow when planning a winter-time move to New England – you must be flexible! Trying to hold steadfast to deadlines and moving dates, faced with unpredictable weather, can be a recipe for disaster. You should always have a backup plan available just in case things get nasty on you.
Get Your Moving Permits
If you’re moving to Boston (or one of the other cities that requires permits: Cambridge, Brookline, or Somerville) – it is very important to obtain your parking permits. Once the snow starts to pile up, parking becomes a premium for everybody. Reserving your own spot is going to save a lot of stress and make things easier and faster for you during your move.
Prepare For The Worst
