Benefits to Hiring Professional Movers During Treasure Valley Winters
As Boise’s oldest and most experienced moving company, we have seen how quickly the weather can change in the Treasure Valley and how it can impact any type of move. New challenges can arise once the temperature drops, the ground freezes or precipitation falls. Bad weather can make even a simple move take longer and be more precarious. When the ground freezes and the snow begins to fall, we recommend hiring professional movers with experience and tools to work through these challenges. Our trucks are loaded with rug runners to make sure all floors are protected during your move. We also have rock salt and snow shovels to make sure all outdoor surfaces are ready for the loading and unloading of the truck. Our crew members are trained to make the move as easy and carefree as they can for you.
Our hometown is known to have all four seasons within a day, making it difficult to predict what the weather will be like on the day of your move. Moving with open bed pickup trucks and trailers can pose possible damage to your belongings and lead to unexpected falls should the weather turn, and it starts to rain or snow. Even reaching your home after a significant snowfall, depending on its location, may be difficult. Renting moving trucks is an alternative; however, driving and parking large moving trucks on icy, snowy, or wet roads is more difficult than you would think if you are not experienced driving these large vehicles. Professional movers have the experience and equipment to keep you and your belongings safe in rain, snow, sleet, or shine. Our company prides itself on training our employees to make sure they are experienced and ready for the inclement weather.
One of the benefits of hiring professional movers in the winter is that there is more time available to book your move. Check out our blog on What to Look for When Hiring a Moving Company. Moving companies are extremely busy in the summer months, therefore you have to book months in advance to get a spot. During the winter, companies are usually a bit slower so they are available to get your move done without much advance notice and the rates are usually lower during those times.
If you were around the Treasure Valley in 2017 during Snowmageddon, imagine moving when Boise was hit with close to 40 inches (nearly matching the record 46.5 inches recorded in 1964) of snow. While 2017 was a unique year, Boise has a history of cold, wet and icy winters, making a move increasingly more dangerous. Winter weather increases the risk of personal injury, property damage, and illness. Professional movers can help you avoid these risks by utilizing years of experience and the proper equipment to get the job done safely.
