Is winter a truly ideal time of year to move in Florida? In most cases, moving can be stressful at any time of the year, but winter moving can be incredibly tiresome in many states where average snow is high. However, the weather in Florida is not as troublesome as in other states.
Most of the moving happens in summer because kids are out of school, the weather is better, work schedules are relaxed, and more daily sunshine is available. However, summer movings are not cheap due to excess demand.
In most parts of Florida, the weather is sub-tropical, with mild winters, sunny summers. Summer is also muggy and with chronic thunderstorms from June to September.
In winter, there are, on average, 7/8 days with rainfall in Florida. Rains are being formed because of the clash of air masses. Rains may come along with wind and cold temperatures. From late November to mid-March, the rare cold period can occur. Snow is infrequent, but it can sometimes happen in the northern part of Florida; in Orlando, it's rare, while in the south of Florida, Miami, it practically never snows.
Occasionally, intense tornadoes can occur in winter or spring because of sudden intrusions of cold air. Hurricanes and tropical storms can be seen from June to November, although they are more often seen from August to October. So why do not you move in the winter? You can do something to make a winter moving easier and less stressful in Florida: 7 Helpful Winter Moving Tips.
The first tip to remember is that it is crucial to be flexible during the winter moving. In the case of rainy weather and winter tornadoes, there is always a tiny possibility of postponing your moving in Florida. Being flexible and ready for this possibility goes a long way if your move ends up being postponed.
The packing for a winter moving is the same as packing for a move any other time of year with two exceptions. First, you must be careful with items that can be damaged from the cold, such as house plants. Second, you should be sure that water-sensitive things like electronics are well-packed in case of an unexpected situation.
Be aware of the temperature and try to be as flexible as possible. Knowing that the possibility of snowy weather will help you know in advance that your move might not go as quickly as planned. You might have to make some adjustments to plans.
You should consider the changing daylight hours and try to move at the bright times because of work safety. Here is a table for daylight hours in Florida: Sunrise, sunset, dawn, and dusk times in Florida.
Although it may be alluring to have your utilities disconnected early, you should gear up the heater on moving day. Having the door opening frequently will send that cold air all through the house. Be careful not to get sick due to breezes in the house.
You should think about your pets, especially if you are moving in winter. Get your cat or dog to a warm, secure place before the movers unload belongings to your new apartment. You do not want them to go out of the house and get lost in a rainy Florida winter.
Although it is not a common problem in Florida, winter brings all kinds of mud, snow, and slush. Movers do not want to track all dirt and debris into your house, even if you are moving out. You should protect your floor coverings with plastic, drop cloths but do not forget to take workers' safety measures.
