Moving house is always stressful – especially in the rain. A good tip for weathering a downpour on moving day is to wrap all furniture in heavy-duty trash bags to protect the larger items from rain. Using coverings whenever possible will also protect the new home from tracked-in mud and scuffed floors. Remember to bring a poncho and rain gear for the family, as well. It’s also a good idea to consult the moving company regarding materials they can lend, parking tips, and estimated traffic times, as they likely have insight from operating in the area. The movers have experience with all kinds of weather.
- Use extra-large trash bags or furniture-sized plastic wrap to keep your items dry when moving during the rain.
- Bring the moving truck as close as possible to your door, then use coverings on the floors of your new home to protect against mud and water.
- Unpack any wet boxes as soon as you can to prevent water and mold from setting in.
