Moving in the Rain

Now that it’s time to start getting ready for your move to Kissimmee, you’re going down the list of relocation tasks to cross off. Such tasks may include forwarding your mail, scheduling a Wi-Fi installation, and so on.  While you’re almost done getting ready for your DIY move, you feel your stomach sink as you check the weather forecast and see that it’ll be raining cats and dogs on the day of your move. You may think that you need to reschedule, but don’t worry, our Kissimmee movers have your back with the following tips on moving in the rain.


Choose Plastic

Normally, our Florida movers wouldn’t suggest using plastic for the sake of the environment, but for weather-related reasons, we recommend using plastic storage bins over cardboard boxes. Cardboard boxes turn soggy when wet, which puts the contents inside at risk of damage, whereas plastic bins keep your valuables air-tight and dry. You can go the extra mile by covering the contents inside with garbage bags for an extra layer of protection.


If you don’t have the time to shop for plastic bins, you can always use our Kissimmee packing services as an alternative.  Our Kissimmee movers will take the meticulous task of waterproofing your belongings off your hands while giving you more time to handle other moving-related matters. We use high-quality products to ensure your valuables arrive at the new home safe and secured.


Reduce Hauling Distance

The last thing you want to do while moving in the rain is to track in more moisture and dirt into the home. Prevent this from happening by moving all your packed plastic bins and padded furniture to the front door; if you have a garage, move them there instead as it’ll be less of a mess to clean up. Reducing the distance will also decrease the chances of slips and falls as you move out of the old residence.


Loading Moving Truck in Rain

Loading the moving truck in the rain can be quite a hassle, but if you follow these tips, you can make the process a little bit easier. Set up a cover from the front door or garage to the back of the truck. This should help keep the plastic bins and furniture from getting drenched. Afterward, lay down sheets of cardboard along the path to prevent accidents.
