Tip For Moving During A Rainstorm

by Byron Matthews

Your moving day is likely decided many days in advance without you having much flexibility. If you look at the forecast and see that it is going to be incredibly rainy, you may be wondering what you should be doing to make the move easier. Here are some tips that will help you and your belongings stay dry. 

Tape Plastic To The Floor

The large rolls of plastic wrap that are used to protect your furniture can have a dual purpose. Consider rolling out strips of plastic wrap in your home and taping them to the floor. This will help protect your floors as people move everything in and out of your home so that you don't make a mess of the old or new place as you are moving your stuff.

Take Things To The Truck In Stages

While a typical move involves taking things directly out of your home, it can be a bit complicated during a rainstorm. You don't want people traveling up and down the stairs with wet shoes since it is a recipe for disaster. Consider taking things out to the truck in stages, starting by moving all of the items on the first floor. Once the first floor is empty, make sure your shoes are dry and move the second floor's items down to the first floor. You can then move things onto the truck during the second stage to avoid navigating wet stairs.

Have Tarps And Towels Ready To Go

The best way to keep things dry is to temporarily throw a tarp over them between the house and truck. Run out to your home improvement store and buy several small tarps that will help get the job done. Keeping things dry on their way to the truck will prevent the bottom of the truck from getting too wet.

It can also help to place certain items on tarps in the truck so that they do not get wet. Think of things like a wood dining room table that is going to sit on its side or a mattress. Having tarps on hand to rest certain things on will help keep them clean for when they reach their destination. 

It can also help to have someone in the truck that is wiping things down as they get moved into the moving truck. Having extra towels on hand to do this will prevent all that water from collecting.
