Today is the time you are about to move. Everything is ready—all items are packed, the truck you rented is waiting for you—unfortunately, there’s an incoming storm that causes panic and worries that your furniture might be ruined and your boxes are soaked. But, just because the weather is bad it does not mean that moving will be a failure. If you are moving when it’s windy, snowing, or raining, here are a few tips to help secure your belongings and calm you down: 

 

Secure your things 

While seeing snow clouds or rain makes you worried about the outcome of your journey with your cardboard and boxes. If your boxes are sealed with packing tape, everything in your storage box can withstand the move. Although loose items, such as your artwork, furniture, and clothes you prepared on hangers, will not endure the elements.  

Packing in bad weather 

Companies that self-moving market industrial plastic covers, rent mattress pads, and some equipment you can use to survive to move in snow or hail. However, if you want to save some money, you can use several household materials that can help shield your belongings sufficiently long to make a move. 

Prepare your moving space 

Before the moving time, you need to inspect your moving truck—or any vehicle you will use— for leaks. Once you can see a minimal leak, you can temporarily repair it using duct tape. For bigger leaks, you need to be creative. You can try to create a temporary patch out of duct tape and plastic wrap. 

Line the front porch and your house’s entryway with towels. While you carry boxes and furniture out, you will catch any water and mud from your feet before it could destruct inside.  

Ultimately, ensure that everybody helping to make the move wear all-weather sneakers or boots. The slippery ground is quite hazardous upon carrying furniture and boxes.  

Prepare your new home 

If you are moving to your town, you should visit your new home and prepare the place before you begin to move. Lay towels or rugs on each side of the front door to prevent tracking water or mud on your floors. If it’s cold outside, guarantee that your utilities are on for you to switch up the heat the moment you reach your new home.
