 Clear all Pathways

As autumn approaches and the leaves are falling, make sure to clear pathways of all debris. Movers are more prone to slip on wet leaves.

Prepare for Rain                                                                 

Moving on a rainy day can be stressful, but you don’t have to cancel or postpone your move because of rain.

  • Use a reliable / professional moving company that your move will be smooth in rainy weather.
  • Prepare for the move to take a little longer.
  • Use the right boxes (i.e. plastic or laminated or use plastic containers). Cardboard boxes get soggy when wet.
  • Shrink wrap to protect your furniture.
  • Wear waterproof shoes with nonskid soles.
  • Plan for short breaks to dry off and have something to drink to rehydrate.
  • If possible, have an indoor and outdoor moving team to avoid tramping mud or water into the house.
  • Drive Carefully.                                                  rain16
