8 Tips for Moving in the Rain

Moving in the rain doesn’t need to turn into a complete disaster, not if you’re ready. Here’s how you and your moving crew can prepare for that.

Seal up with packing tape

Make sure your boxes are sealed up tight with packing tape, Moving says, and sturdy enough to withstand exposure to the rain.

Use garbage bags

Protect any loose items like the clothes you plan to leave inside your cabinet. Punch a hole in the top of the garbage bag and use that to cover a stack of your clothes on hangers. You can use this to shield your books and other household items too.

Keep towels handy

Once the crew has the loaded the furniture onto the truck, have someone wipe off the excess moisture. This should prevent leaks and keep your items safe from mold or water damage.

Move unimportant things first

If you’re moving during the rain, it may be best to get the crew to start with unimportant items first. That way, by the time they move onto valuable ones, there’s a huge chance that the rain would have already stopped.

Talk to your movers

When you pick a moving crew, ask them what kind of protective measures they can offer. Companies like DFW Fireman Movers typically put plastic or blankets over wood items or furniture. They also have plastic wrap for your upholstery. That’s going to keep your items from getting damaged.

Reduce distractions

Moving out of your home and packing up your entire household is already hard. But doing it in the rain can make for a rocky road ahead. Minimize any distractions, SFGate says. If you have kids or a pet, arrange for someone to mind them while you supervise the move.

Protect yourself

Wear waterproof gear and shoes with nonskid soles so you’re comfortable on moving day. Keep yourself protected, warm, and dry so you can settle into your new house without any problems.

Reschedule for another day

If the downpour is getting worse and not better, talk to your moving firm about rescheduling the move for another day. That’s better than taking the risk.
