Cheap interstate removals Melbourne can be tricky with Victoria’s notoriously unpredictable weather. From the moment the truck arrives to the minute the last piece of furniture is carefully packed into the back, it’s possible to experience the full spectrum of four seasons, from summer sunshine to cyclonic winds. To limit the impact and inconvenience of moving home in the rain and wind, there are a number of measures you can take to reduce injury, damage and risk to both your property and our removalists.

Put on your OH&S hat

Cheapest Removalists have experience moving in all weather conditions, but there are a few things you can do to make the job easier. If it’s windy, chock doors securely open with a doorstop; you don’t want it flying shut when we’re half way through the door carrying your flat screen TV. Regardless of whether you’re expecting rain or sunshine on the day, hanging a tarp over the entry to the house can also keep blinding sun or pelting rain from obstructing removalists’ sight.

Prepare yourself

Even if you’ve hired professional removalists like us to do the heavy lifting for you, it doesn’t hurt to have some sturdy footwear on hand in the event you need to step outside to give instructions. A hat will help keep the rain out of your eyes and some gardening gloves will come in handy for grip in the event you need to shift things around. Wet weather moves present a new range of water-related challenges, so if in doubt, leave any heavy lifting to us!

Prepare your house

It’s equally important to look after the house you’re leaving as it is to protect the furniture you’re moving. Regardless of whether you’re finishing a rental lease or you’ve sold the home, you may be liable for any damage incurred during the move. To protect wooden floors, place old carpet, towels or bed sheets on the ground. This will protect the ground and also reduce the risk of slipping. By placing all the boxes and furniture in the room/s closest to the entrance you will also reduce the amount of water, mud and dirt that inevitably makes it way into the house during wet weather moves.

Don’t risk it

Accidents can happen. They’re even more likely to happen in wet weather. For peace of mind throughout the move it’s best to invest in moving insurance.
