Moving Home in Wet Weather

No one can control the weather, however you can control how to move in bad weather.  Below are some great tips when moving in the wet weather to make your move less stressful.

Keep Updated with Weather Forecasts

The best way to protect your belongings from the rain is to plan your move wisely. Check your local weather forecast to know when to expect downpours. Keep up to date with weather reports.

Plastic wrap for your furniture

Water may severely damage your furniture. Moisture could cause cracks and may swell wooden objects. Rain droplets can also cause spot stains which are hard to remove. A good way to protect your furniture is by covering them in plastic shrink wrap or an unused cloth. This will help lessen the risk of water damaging your cabinets, desks and other wooden belongings when your removalists move and transport them.

Floor Protection

Heavy rain and a lot of foot traffic can cause serious damage to most type of floors. Use an old cloth or a tarp to cover the floor in both houses. Unused carpets are also ideal to capture mud and moisture. Avoid using plastic shrink wrap. This material can be slippery when wet which can cause accidents for both your family and the removalists.

Waterproof  Important Items

Place all of your important documents in a plastic folder to prevent them from getting wet. You can use a plastic box to store your family member’s electronic devices to ensure moisture will not reach them. If you feel they need more protection, use plastic wrap as well. It is advisable to transfer your belongings to your vehicle when there is less rain. You can use waterproof tarps as temporary cover when necessary.
