Rain During Move
In the event of heavy snow or rain on moving day, you’ll want to pack your items a bit differently as well. Moving boxes secured with packing tape should be sturdy enough to withstand a little rain. However, if you’re expecting a pretty heavy downpour, it might be worth looking into plastic totes for moving instead of cardboard boxes. If you’ve got artwork to move, it should be wrapped in plastic or covered with trash bags to keep water out. Any clothes and textiles can also be packed in trash bags to protect them from the rain. Wood or fabric furniture can be wrapped in heavy blankets or tarps to protect them from light rain. Furniture can also be shrink-wrapped in plastic, which is a good idea if you expect very heavy amounts of rain.
