Perth removals during the winter months can be very tricky business. As you may know we are now in Perth, Western Australia, and our winter spans from around June to September. Instead of it being particularly cold, our winter comprises of a lot of rain.
You should avoid moving furniture in the rain, but as we know sometimes it just has to be done and there’s no other way. Your house might be settling on that day, or you could be picking the keys up your new rental. Needless to say when moving furniture on a rainy day consider these tips, to make the whole experience as painless as possible.
Consider hiring the services of a removal company. Removalist are trained individuals that move furniture for a living. They have acquired the know-how and experience to be able to maneuver bulky and awkward furniture through tight corners with great ease. These guys really know what they’re doing. Hiring the services of Perth movers like Emmanuel Transport can really facilitate this task. At least when you have the professionals move your furniture during a rainy day, you can rest assured that because of their expertise there will be no damage to your furniture at all.
Keep your pathway clear
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of ensuring that your pathways are clear when moving furniture on a rainy day. As a rule of thumb Perth removals companies will have a walk through the house And make sure that all the pathways are clear. Having the wrong things in the pathways is the main cause of injury when moving furniture in a house.
Cover your TV
I know that I might be stating the obvious here but you will not believe how many people forget this very important thing. Remember to cover your TV. TVs these days can be very expensive and I unlike iPhones they are not waterproof. It could be a good idea to grab a removals blanket and cover your TV when transporting it from your house to your vehicle or vice versa. If the rain is too strong, then consider waiting it out till it subsides a little bit and then quickly transport it to your vehicle.
Get your plant in a dry area
Pot plants can be messy when carried dry, but when carried wet you would not believe how unpleasant it can be. Pot plants carry a lot of bugs and little crawlies. These are the things that you definitely do not want roaming around in your house, your furniture or your car. If you get a chance, I would suggest getting a bin bag and wrapping the bottom of the pot plant to ensure the everything is secure and that no residue can escape from it.
