Helpful Tips For an Easy Move in Any Weather Condition From Becker Movers, Rochester, New York

The weather in Rochester is quite temperamental! From the hot summers to winter wonderlands, residents need to prepare for just about any condition. When it comes to moving, it's important to keep yourself, your family, and your possessions protected from the elements. If you want to avoid unnecessary damage to your belongings, and avoid a tedious move, let the expert movers at Becker Movers help you, rain or shine.

If you're making a residential move, here are some helpful tips to beat any weather condition:

  • Rain: Moving during a drizzle won't cause problems. But if a storm rolls into town, your best choice is to postpone moving until the next day. If that isn't an option, keep your furniture and belongings dry by wrapping them in plastic wrap and moving pads. Lay down towels to keep your floors safe from wet and muddy shoes.
  • Shine: You'll have few problems moving in the sunshine, but without protection, moving on a nice summer day can cause a painful sunburn! Carrying heavy objects in the hot sun can also cause dehydration, tiredness, and overheating. Make sure you, your family, and your movers have enough water to make it through the day!
  • Snow: In Rochester, the snow can fall as late as May! Cold winds can cause chills as well. If you're moving in the cold months, safety is key. Salt your driveway and walkways to melt snow and ice. Make sure the truck is close to your home to minimize the time you spend outdoors. Keep your floors protected from snow and mud with mats and blankets. And of course, have plenty of hot cocoa and coffee on hand for the movers!

These are just a few easy tips to make your move as easy as possible, in any type of weather. For everything else you need for residential moving in Rochester, Becker Movers is here to help!
