Tips For Rainy Weather Moves

If you’re moving into a new home, you’ve probably spent weeks planning every detail to ensure that everything goes smoothly on moving day. Unfortunately, even the most careful planners cannot control the weather, so you may end up dealing with unexpected rain. But, there’s no need to panic! Here are tips from a moving company in Denver to help you cope with rainy weather during a move:

Protect the Floors

If it’s raining, the movers may accidentally track in water and mud from outside. Prevent the weather from ruining your new floors by putting out protection. If it’s not storming too heavily, laying down pieces of cardboard should be enough to protect your floors as long as you have something to secure the pieces in place. If it’s storming heavily, make sure that you keep an eye on the cardboard and replace it as it becomes soaked with dirt and mud.

Don’t Rush

The rainy weather may make you feel more flustered and stressed, but don’t let these emotions get the best of you, or you might start to rush and hurt yourself. It’s important to go slow and use extra caution when moving during a rainstorm. Remember, surfaces are slippery when it’s raining, so you shouldn’t be running around trying to get things done. Be patient and rely on professional movers to handle everything. As professionals, they have experience moving in all types of weather.

Use Plastic Wrap

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that a little water won’t hurt your belongings. You must use plastic wrap to protect your belongings if it’s raining outside. Why is this so important? Let’s say you decide to move your mattress in the middle of a rainstorm. If it’s not protected by plastic wrap, it will quickly get soaked. At the same time, it’s being transported in and out of the moving truck. Mold may eventually develop in your mattress, which can lead to unpleasant odors and respiratory problems. Your mattress isn’t the only item that can be affected by mold—clothing, rugs, and furniture can be, too. Keep your belongings safe—and free from mold—by using plastic wrap.

Distract Kids and Pets

Moving in the rain is stressful, but it can be incredibly overwhelming if you’re moving in the rain with kids and pets. Kids won’t understand how much stress you’re under while trying to get everything accomplished, and pets may get in the way of the movers. For these reasons, it may be best to ask a family friend to watch them while you finish moving. If you only have pets, you may be able to get away with keeping them contained in one room instead of having a family friend look after them.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
