Moving in the wet weather is not fun or suggested. However, there is not much we can do to manage the weather, especially when moves are planned for months. Of course, we could decide to move in the summer instead of the winter or prevent the wet season, but sometimes an unpredicted downpour hits us when we least suppose it.
There are some things we can do to prepare for the weather that will not go to cost a lot of money. We don’t suggest going out and purchasing rain-specific moving things and boxes unless you feel disposed.
Here are some tips to make your move smooth in the wet weather:
- Keep checking the forecast
Check the weather forecast before you decide to move. If sunny skies were expected a week before moving, check again as the forecast has changed as the day draws nearer. The more you can begin to trust the times of rain meteorologists are predicting.
- Wrap everything you can
Moving blankets are not waterproof, you should consider plastic covers for that. Covering the items will save them from getting wet.
- Protect your floors
Whether it is your new home or old one, the rainy season normally means walking in water and mud. You can use a few old towels to avoid damaging your floors.
- Prioritise your necessary things
If you have a break in the weather, transport what you can’t pay for to get wet. That could be your furniture, paper-machine sculptures, bedding, or masses or fairy floss whatever you consider the most delicate in the rain.
- Set up temporary cover
An old gazebo can give cover from the door to the vehicle. If you have shortened your carrying distance as much as you can, some sneaky cover can take a walk through the rain a completely enclosed path.
- Make an assembly line
You need a system to load a moving truck in the rain. We suggest designating one or two people to stay with the truck to work on packing it in an organized way. You need to keep some people stationed at the moving truck, but also set up an assembly line for the complete procedure.
