While it's a good idea to plan for an upcoming move with consideration for the average temperature and weather, sometimes rain on the day of your move cannot be avoided. If you've checked the weather report and noticed that rain is forecast for your move, there are a number of things that you can do to make sure that your furniture stays dry. While you put on a rain jacket or bring an umbrella, consider the following tips to ensure that nothing gets significantly damaged by the rain during your move.
Keep an Eye on the Weather and Plan Accordingly
To make sure that your move doesn't come with any unexpected problems due to rain being in the forecast, it's important that you pay close attention to the weather report, especially since weather can change in just a day's time or less.
If you notice that rain is in the forecast, you may be able to reschedule the move within a particular amount time. For example, if rain is forecast more heavily in the afternoon than in the morning, see if the movers can come out in the afternoon so you're not stuck moving while it's pouring outside.
Purchase Cheap Tarps to Drape Over Furniture
An easy way to protect your furniture from water damage during the move itself is by draping tarps over the furniture.
Buy a few, inexpensive, waterproof tarps and some painters tape. Wrap the tarps around the furniture and use the painters tape to secure them without leaving any sticky residue or damaging the finish.
Make Sure the Moving Truck is Kept Close to Your Home
In order to keep things from being exposed to the rain for longer than necessary on the day of your move, make sure to keep the moving truck parked close to the garage or other door where the mover will be carrying your belongings out of your home. By moving your car out of the driveway and bringing your moving truck in nice and close, you can make sure that you're able to move items in and out of your home with ease and without any more exposure to the rain than necessary.
As you prepare for the date of your move, it's vital that you pay attention to the weather. With the tips above, you can be prepared even if rain is forecast. Click here for information on what else you can do to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible.Share
