During the late fall and winter months, peak season moving prices have lowered substantially and new home owners start looking for Ashland VA movers to take advantage of the cheap prices.  So with many people needing the services of a professional Ashland VA moving company, there’s a great deal of disappointment when the hopes of customers are ruined by the inevitable consequences of inclement  weather. Will the thick snow and ice on the roadway, there will virtually be no moving solution to conquer this situation in most cases.

It is very important for professional Ashland VA moving companies to have plenty of experience and know when to push through some less than ideal conditions and when to call it off.  Safety should always be a priority.


That being said, there are some things you can do to make a move or no move decision a little easier on everyone involved.  And to find out exactly what those things are, look no further than Mid-Atlantic Moving & Storage for some quick pointers if you ever find yourself having to move in the snow.


Watch the Weather Forecast


If you suspect that a potential snow storm is approaching, then be sure to follow the weather forecast to fine tune your desired moving date to best serve you and your Ashland VA moving company.


Plan for Delays


As a result of a heavy snow shower, Ashland VA movers should postpone all moving operations until they gain confirmation of ideal moving conditions.  As a customer, please understand that your movers will not be able to meet your ETA due to the unfavorable road conditions.  Most Ashland VA moving companies have box trucks ranging from 12-26 feet long.  The average weight of these box trucks are normally about 21


Prepare for Possible Cancellations


Ashland VA moving companies hold the right to postpone your move in the event of extreme weather such as heavy snowfall. Nothing personal, it’s just the fact that if a severe storm has made the roads slick and hardened with icy and snow, then moving trucks won’t be able to reach you. Therefore your move date must be cancelled for the safety of all parties involved.  This is why you SHOULD wait until the last minute to pack food, clothing, and bedding, especially if you’re moving in the winter. Because once your move cancels, then you’d likely be forced to dig into all of your boxes to find a blanket and pillow to lay down on the floor of your packed up house. If your utilities are scheduled to shut off, then contact your local utility providers to ask if you can delay the service transfer. If worst comes to worst, you can stay in a hotel until your rescheduled moving day arrives.




At Mid-Atlantic Moving and Storage, we understand that each and every move is as different, unique, and never the exact same. With that in mind, we pride ourselves on being able to customize and personalize every move we handle to give you a custom moving experience, tailored to your individual needs. Whether you need your entire house moved or just a sofa that has gotten heavier since the last time you moved, Mid-Atlantic Moving and Storage will take care of you at a surprisingly affordable rate.
