moving from a warm climate to a cold one

Long-distance moves can sometimes take you from one climate to another. When you are moving from somewhere warm to somewhere cold, there are several things that you should consider for the move. My blog will provide you with information that will help you get through this big change with few problems. You will learn about how to pack up your things to protect them from the change in temperatures and what you should pack in your vehicle so that you have it readily accessible while you make the trip from your old home all the way to the new one.

Essentials To Pack Separately During Your Move


If you are getting ready for a big move, you might be thinking about hiring a moving company that offers packing services. This can be a great way to make the move a little easier on yourself, but there are some items that you'll want to pack separately. These items should be kept in your vehicle or in another easy-to-find place so that your family will have them as soon as you arrive at your new home. This can help make things easier and more comfortable for everyone in your household.

Personal Hygiene Supplies

You'll probably want to brush your teeth before you go to bed on your first night in your new home, but doing so can be tough if you don't even know where your toothbrush is. Pack up basic personal hygiene supplies separately so that you can easily access them when you arrive at your new home.

Change Of Clothes

You might get sweaty and dirty during the move, so you'll probably want to have a change of clothes on hand in case you need them. You will probably also want to pack pajamas for each of your family members in a separate bag so that everyone can get comfortable quickly and easily after a long, tiring day of moving.


The last thing that you want to be searching through a moving truck for is your essential medication. Make sure that any prescription medications, over-the-counter meds, diabetes testing supplies, contact lens cases and solutions and other essential medical supplies are close at hand in case you need them.

Entertainment For The Kids

Moves can be quite stressful and frightening for kids. One way to make things better is to pack up a favorite toy and some form of entertainment -- things such as books, coloring books or handheld video game devices are easy to access in the car and in the new home.

Pet Supplies

You have to think about your pets during your move, too! Make sure that their leashes, collars, food, medications and favorite toys are packed in a place where they can be easily found. Bringing a favorite blanket or dog bed can also help your pet feel more comfortable in the new house.


The last thing that you'll probably feel like doing on your first night in the new house is cooking, and you probably won't have easy access to your pots and pans anyway. Consider packing a few easy-to-carry snacks, such as protein bars and fruit, so that you and your family can have a quick bite to eat on the way to and in your new home.
