Moving from one house to another is something that can easily be done. Perhaps you have already chosen date weeks or months in advance without considering the possible weather of that particular day. When the weather forecast is signifying that you are unlucky today, then you need to do your part and take some additional precautions to make sure that your moving project will be drier and smoother a much as possible. Below are some tips that can help you to easily move in despite the bad weather.
Monitor the weather forecast
If there is one thing that can abruptly change than the weather would be the weather forecast. When it predicted that you will experience sunny skies 1 week before your moving day the last time you checked, try checking it again. Perhaps you will notice that the forecast constantly changes as the big day gets nearer. Hence, check the weather forecast daily to be prepared.
Secure your floors
Regardless if it is your old stomping ground or your new house, rainy weather can commonly indicate that you will walk in mud and water. So, make sure to place some of your old towels, which are not covering your glassware, in every doorway for you to prevent harming your flooring,
Have everything wrapped
Given all the stressful packing as you prepare to move out, we sometimes tend to become a bit lazy and just wrap the essential boxes. In this case, there’s a big possibility that it is the less important things that you will open last in your new house. Hence, when some of them are the reason why water is tracked in your home, you will see nothing but a mess as you unpack them for real. The key to this would be to just wrap everything. This way, you will see that all of your things are in good condition regardless of what you open last.
Stock up on bin bags
Huge bin bags are heaven-sent when it is raining on your moving day. With little cost and prep, you can have everything you have waterproofed.
Waterproof important belongings
When something is very precious and has a sentimental value to you, never let it inside your bin bag. If you can, it’s best to have every important item waterproofed using its own plastic wrapping and bag. This way, you can make sure that they won’t be damaged during your moving process.
Shorten carrying distances
If you are packing boxes inside or you are actually in transit, rain does not matter that much. However, it gets hassle once you are moving your furniture in the rain. If possible request your delivery provider to have their truck park on the garage or even right up on your door to reduce the time your things and furniture will be exposed to damp, moisture, and rain from the outside.
Hire a professional moving company
Moving one home to another will be a breeze if you just rely on it to the professional Melbourne to Brisbane removalists. They will do all they can to secure your things and keep them from the rain.
