Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 13, 2012
Summer has given way to fall, and winter is fast approaching, which is why Acclaimed Movers and Storage, the premier, luxury moving company in Los Angeles, has prepared some essential tips for a move this winter so one doesn't get left out in the cold:
Plan for the weather. Snow storms and other inclement winter weather can occur any time, anywhere in the country, and is sure to delay your move. Expect that a move will take a couple days more than one originally plans for, and arrange accommodations accordingly.
Clearing the driveway and side-walks of any ice, snow, or water before moving company arrives will make things easier. By clearing a path, it'll allow the movers to work faster and prevent any nasty slips or spills.
Keep an extra set of warm clothes and any important documents close by. One never know what kind of delays may occur during a move, so keep as many warm clothing options on hand as possible. It’s also important to keep documents like ID’s, passports, and birth certificates nearby so they don’t get misplaced or stolen during the transition.
Trucks get cold, as most trailers are not equipped with climate-controls, leaving inside temperatures at or below outside conditions. Be sure not to pack any liquids or fragile items that can be damaged or altered by dropping temperatures.
Alert the utility company to have any utilities on and ready for an arrival at the new address. Because there can be delays with stuff, having the electricity or gas on will save one from freezing in a new place.
When storage is required, be sure to choose a storage provider with a climate-controlled facility. The last thing one wants is for the belongings to freeze in a warehouse somewhere; a reputable storage company will have a temperature control system to protect any effects from the elements.
If one is traveling in a personal vehicle, check the tire pressure, oil and fluid levels, and that the heater is working properly so that one doesn't find oneself stranded on an ice-covered road. As a precaution, bring a few tea light candles and an empty coffee can; one of those candles can heat a car surprisingly fast. Also keep a list of roadside emergency assistance numbers.
