Moving Tips for a Rainy Day: Ensure a Smooth Move with Kennards Self Storage

June 28, 2024 by Kennards Self Storage

Moving can be daunting, and rainy weather can make it even more challenging. However, with some strategic planning and the right supplies, you can ensure your belongings stay dry and protected. Here are some valuable tips to help you manage a move on a rainy day.

Start by gathering high-quality packing supplies. Kennards Self Storage offers a variety of moving boxes and packing materials to keep your items safe from the elements. Their Box Shop provides everything from plastic covers and tarps to waterproof tape. Even better, when you purchase 10 or more boxes, you save 20%, and you can mix and match sizes for your convenience.

Furniture and mattresses are particularly vulnerable to water damage. Wrapping these items in plastic covers is essential, and Kennards offers covers designed specifically for this purpose. Adding a layer of blankets or moving pads beneath the plastic can provide extra protection.

It's crucial to avoid storing wet items. Moisture can lead to mold and mildew, potentially ruining your belongings. Ensure everything is thoroughly dried before packing. If something gets wet during the move, dry it completely before placing it in storage.

One of the standout features at Kennards Self Storage is their large undercover loading bays. These bays offer a sheltered area to load and unload your items, keeping them dry regardless of the weather. This feature can significantly ease the stress of moving on a rainy day.

Planning your move around the weather forecast can also help. Try to move during lighter rain periods if possible, and keep extra towels and tarps handy to cover items quickly if unexpected rain occurs.

Finally, once your move is complete and you have moved  into your storage unit, Kennards Self Storage offers a used boxes buy-back program. If your boxes are still in good condition, you can return them, saving money and contributing to a sustainable cycle by giving the boxes a second life.

Kennards Self Storage makes moving on a rainy day easier with their extensive range of packing supplies and convenient undercover loading bays. Visit Kennards Self Storage Box Shop to purchase all the supplies you need for a successful move, and find your nearest location with large undercover loading bays to protect your belongings from the rain. Don't forget to take advantage of the 20% discount on 10 or more moving boxes and their used boxes buy-back program!
