Although moving can be an exciting time, it’s also a lot of hard work and the last thing that you want is your belongings to get ruined because you failed to take weather proofing into consideration. Our Vancouver moving company experts at Mountain Movers have compiled the following blog to help you ensure that your belongings are kept safe and your move goes as smoothly as possible.
Keep Track of Weather Forecasts
One of the easiest ways to help you during your move is to keep an eye on the weather reports the week prior to your moving date. Knowing what to expect will help you prepare for your move when it comes to packaging, storage and transportation. For example, if you’re moving to an area with a high level of humidity, make sure that any items sensitive to heat are packaged with this in mind to prevent damage.
Wrapping and Packaging
Your success during the wrapping and packaging process will really depend on how well you keep track of weather forecasts, as mentioned above. However, there are also packaging procedures independent of weather conditions – things like mattress covers, shrink wrap and plastic bags should be used whenever possible to keep your most valuable and fragile items safe.
When you start boxing your items, make sure the boxes are strong, clean and durable. Afterwards, be sure to find a proper material to cover them with, especially if the weather forecast is rainy – boxes are useless when they’re wet and this can compromise the safety of your items.
