Moving In the Rain: The Best Tips

Rain on moving day can really dampen your plans. While you can try to avoid it, sometimes the rain is unavoidable. With torrential downpour, it is best to reschedule. If you need to move that day, we have the tips to keep you on schedule while moving in the rain.

Keep Dry

You’re going to want to take your rain gear out of the closer. Wear thick, grooved rubber boots for the best protection from unwanted slips and falls. Likewise, rimmed hats and baseball caps keep the rain off your face so your gaze is clear. Additionally, it is also not a bad idea to bring an extra change of clothes to change into to keep yourself warm and dry.

Cover Everything

Rainwater can hurt a lot of household materials. To do this, protect your things by bagging up any electronics, wood materials, clothes, and other smaller trinkets in plastic grocery bags or trash bags. Moreover, if you can invest, shrinkwrap can save bigger furniture items and more valuable art projects.

Care for Your Team

Protect your team in the first place, and they will get the job done efficiently. If it is raining, lay a cheap rug or a few towels in the house’s front entrance. As a result, this will allow them to wipe their shoes and keep the inside floor dry. Next, cardboard boxes should be flattened and mark a safe path on slippery surfaces like tile flooring. Further, towels left out ready for any who need an extra wipe down to get rain off their face.

Create a System

Before you arrive, concoct an assembly line to get everyone stationed and limit bumping into each other in the rain. First, assign one to two people at the truck to move boxes out to the dry unloading area of the house. In the meantime, one at the unloading station to dry the boxes as they come in and keep a safe workspace for the rest of the team. By this time, a team of two can move each box to the correct room. If this suggestion does not work for you, then feel free to curate a plan that works for you!
