Moving, no matter the time of year, can be quite stressful and daunting. It is even more challenging moving homes or offices during the Winter months.

No need to worry however, we’ve got you covered with basic tips to make your move a little easier this cold and wet season.

1. Plan Ahead

Planning is a crucial step in any move, no matter the season or time of year. As the weather can be quite unpredictable, especially in Cape Town. It is wise to plan your move well in advance, ensuring all your packing and pre-move errands are completed ahead of moving day.

2. Keep Track of the weather

The weather during Winter is ever-changing, and unfortunately is something that we cannot control. As such, it may be helpful to be proactive and keep track of the weather forecast prior to moving day. This will also help ensure that you can gather whatever is necessary if by any chance it is raining, snowing, or extremely windy on moving day so that you can plan accordingly.

3. Protect your belongings from the harsh weather conditions

Using the correct moving and packing materials is essential to ensure all of your belongings are protected from Winter precipitation.

4. Wear the appropriate Winter gear

Winter in Cape Town can be wet, cold, and windy. It is important to dress appropriately to ensure that you are protected against harsh weather conditions.
