1. Don't pack your warm clothes – bring with you. This can be hard to remember if you are moving from a sunny location to a cold one. If your freight is delayed, you can find yourself shivering in your new location.

2. Hazardous cold weather can take us by surprise at any location during winter. Always plan for cold weather no matter where you are moving to.
