Singing and Moving in the Rain...

Letting Earl's Moving Company take the stress out of moving, even in the rain!

Moving in the rain in Alabama can be a hot mess! We had rain everyday for a month it seemed in the spring. Now it has slowed down a bit, but there are those pesky thunderstorms that tend to pop up on our hot, humid days. 

When it is raining on your scheduled moving day, there are a few extra steps to take if you are planning to assist. Keep an eye on the weather for a few days prior to the big day. If there is suspicion it may be raining, it is easier to be prepared a day or two earlier. Safety is the main concern.
  • The moving truck will want to be as close as possible to the entrance to your home to keep your belongings as dry as possible. Clear all drives and make arrangements for parking away from the closest route in. 
  • Make sure there are rugs and towels on the floor avoiding slippery shoes and tracking water onto hardwoods and carpets. Ensure they are laid out flat, taping if necessary.
  • Don't get in a hurry. A rainy day will take longer to move than a sunny, dry day. Be prepared, be flexible and don't over-schedule the day. 
  • Suggest everyone wear sneakers to avoid slipping on wet ground and floors.
  • Set up an assembly line at each house, handing things out to avoid everyone getting wet and keeping inside floors dry. 
  • Have extra towels on hand for people to dry off. It is a good idea for everyone to have a change of clothes.
  • Place as much outdoor furniture, grills, etc under a covered area beforehand to avoid moving wet furniture on a moving truck with inside furniture and boxes.
  • Cover fabric furniture and mattresses with plastic. Protect boxes so they don't become weak.
  • Schedule carpet cleaning for the day after a move to avoid tracking clean floors and carpet.
