Keep Track of Weather Reports
Be sure to check out the weather forecast for your up coming move. The Metservice provides great information on rain levels, wind and temperate. You are also able to check out the weather 10 days in advance.
Protect your Belongings
Whether it is raining or sunny make sure that you have used quality boxes, poor quality boxes can crush under the weight of other boxes stacked on top of them or start to crumple with a sprinkle of rain . The Smooth Movers box range are double walled, which provide you with a lot more durability.
Seal all boxes up with tape, folding the top of the boxes is just not enough to guard against the weather, the boxes also can’t be stacked effectively (rain or shine) in the truck taking up valuable space for the rest of your household items.
Schedules can be delayed due to gales or rain. Its better for the truck to be slower so that it, the movers and your belongings arrive safe and sound.
Protect your Home
Protect your home with old carpets or towels, move all the manageable items into one or two rooms closest to the door, this prevents water being tracked inside. Consider using old sheets at the entrance especially if you have tiles or wooden floors, this will prevent them becoming slippery, making it a safer move for all.
