Bad Weather On Moving Day? Here’s What You Need To Do…
Weather in the UK can be very unpredictable with just 1 inch of snow bringing the country to a standstill. Whilst the risk of your move being cancelled is minimal, it’s still handy to prepare for poor weather conditions. Here are some pro tips you’ll want to consider beforehand:
Tracking The Weather
Check the weather forecast each day of the week leading up to your move and for the date of your move. This’ll give you a bit of an idea of what weather to expect. Don’t forget to also check the forecast for the location of your new home. You may need to prepare a different route to your new property.
Protect Your Belongings
Your belongings should be suitably boxed and sealed ready for the move. If you know you’re going to have to carry packaged items a distance to your home, you want to make sure they’re protected from the elements. Black bags are ideal for carrying clothes, and furniture has to be covered with plastic to prevent rain damage.
Protect Your New Floors
Lay some plastic sheeting or old bed sheets on the ground to prevent any damage to your new floors from wet or mud that could be brought in. When you’re done with the move just pick it up and pop it in the bin, keeping your floors looking clean and fresh.
Heat One Room
Heating just one room of your new home will give you a cosy space for you to warm up after spending time out in the cold. Remember to keep the door to the room closed to keep the heat in, don’t heat the whole house as the heating will be lost out the front door and will be a waste of money.Back To List
