If a move is on your horizon hopefully take the time to adequately prepare everything you could to help make your move as smooth as possible. The day that your move finally arrives hopefully you will have everything packed and labeled for when the moving company arrives; your new home will be all ready for you to move in; and all of the necessary paperwork has been taken care of. All of your hard work is about to pay off as your moving day finally arrives. Unfortunately even the best laid plans sometimes get derailed through no fault of our own. Your move could be planned perfectly and some things can still pop up and cause you stress, anxiety, and more work. Today Laprom Movers is going to walk through some things that may pop up the day of your move so that you can have some ideas of how you would deal with them just in case they happen.
Rain & Weather Hazards on Moving Day
There are a variety of weather hazards that could pop up the day of your move. First let’s talk about extreme heat. If the day of your move the heat is excessive you run the risk of heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and car problems. You can prepare for this situation by making sure that everyone stays as cool and hydrated as possible. Make sure that you have plenty of cold water bottles onsite for you and your movers. When you take off to make the drive to your new home you will want to make sure that you have a roadside emergency kit that has plenty of extra water in it in case your vehicles overheat. If you take these precautions your move should still go according to plan even with the extreme heat. Rain and snow are also weather hazards that could cause some issues the day of your move. If it is raining profusely you may want to evaluate whether or not you need to postpone your move. You would hate for your belongings to get wet and damaged by the downpour. If there is a snowstorm the day of your move there are a few different problems that you could encounter. The snow may be so high that your moving truck will not be able to make it to your house or drive safely to your new home. It could also prevent you from being able to safely move your belongings out of your old home and into your new home. Severe snowstorms may delay your move from being able to occur. The best way to be prepared for weather hazards is by checking the weather leading up to the big day. Many times you can adjust the date of your move ahead of time to miss the unsightly weather conditions in the forecast.
Traffic Delays on Moving Day
Traffic is one of those things that you simply cannot plan ahead of time for. If you run into traffic the day of your move there is just not that much that you can do about it. We do recommend that you check the traffic routes the day before your move to see if there is major roadwork that you need to be aware of. This is extremely helpful in the case of a long-distance move. Knowing that an alternative route will help you arrive faster at your destination can save you and your movers tons of time.
