Ah, April showers. While it may be welcomed as a way of bringing beautiful May flowers, rain during your moving day can often lead to stress and complications that you weren’t prepared for. But this doesn’t have to be the case! Here are some tips for moving during rainy weather that can help protect your belongings and keep your move on track.
Be Prepared With Supplies
If the forecast tells you to expect rain on your moving day, gather supplies in advance. Have tarps or plastic bags on hand to cover furniture and boxes while moving. This will help keep them dry while also reducing the amount of dirt and mud tracked through your new home.
Additionally, make sure everyone has something to keep covered—raincoats, ponchos, hats, etc.—to further keep them comfortable and dry throughout the process.
Invest in Movers Who Are Equipped For The Job
When you hire movers, finding ones capable and willing to work through inclement weather conditions such as rain or snow is important. Ask questions about their experience before hiring them so you know what kind of precautions they take when encountering this kind of situation.
Additionally, look into reviews from customers who used their services before you decide on one particular mover or company. That way, you know what sort of service quality you can expect and avoid surprises.
Protect Your Valuables
Smaller items such as electronics or jewelry should be packed separately with extra padding and plastic wrap in case of increased moisture levels due to rain-related humidity changes inside a moving truck or container (depending on where you are relocating).
It’s also a good idea to store these items closer to wherever you'll be at all times instead of loading them onto a truck right away – just in case anything gets wet due to unexpected inclement weather patterns during transit periods. This may mean more trips, but it's worth it to save expensive electronics and sentimental valuables from potential water damage caused by unpredictable rain showers throughout the moving process!
