Pack your things safe
Of course, the safety of your stuff is the first that you would want to do. If you are just packing when it has already started raining or if the weather is predicted to be rainy or stormy, then it is safer to provide an extra layer of protection to all your packages. Instead of going for cloth or paper wrappings, cover your things with plastic to keep off the water, just in case.
If you have almost completed with your packing, wrap the boxes that contain the most important things, electronic equipment and furniture in plastic covers. Pack them well and seal them without leaving no room for the water to enter.
You can use the use the cushioning materials like bubble wraps and blankets to double as a protection from the rain. Before you wrap the whole packaging with plastic covers, seal the whole box with a strong packing tape all around and check once for any tear or holes in the boxes.
If you have any pieces of art, it could possibly be affected by the moisture, so make sure to wrap them in plastic and use wooden crates to pack them well and complete it with a layer of plastic wrapping.
Your clothes could get mould due to the dampness so seal them well. Even a small drop of moisture could damage your clothes and if it is a long distance travel, by the time you open it, the condition wouldn’t be salvaged. So make sure to wrap your important clothes individually in plastic covers, if not, at the least pack them totally in plastic wrapping.
Secure transportation while it rains
Before you start loading you load your boxes, check the trunk for any holes or leaks. If there are any, try to get a different truck or at the most, seal them properly so that it doesn’t come off during any point in the travel.
Once you have loaded all the things in your trunk, you should be covering the entrance with thick blankets. If you are hiring experienced removalists, they will usually do so without you needing to ask them. There are a lot of experiences movers in Melbourne who have been practising this technique of sealing the entrance of the trunk with thick water absorbing materials. These movers Melbourne even go an extra mile and check for the weather updates in the delivery location if it is an office removal – Melbourne to any far-off city – and take all precautions while they are starting out from here.
Unloading and unpacking
If the truck has reached your destination safely, it still isn’t the time to celebrate. We know how daunting moving can be and you would feel like taking a day or two before you get around to unpacking the boxes, but while it is raining, it is better to be sooner than sorry.
If the dampness has managed to enter any of the boxes, it may cause some serious damage. So the sooner you check all your things and make sure that it is all fine, the better it is.
Even if you are sure that there aren’t any leakages, it is better to wipe the important things with a dry cloth, like electronic appliances, books and decorative pieces.
