A winter day is characterized by rain and cool temperatures. It is possible to see snowflakes if you move to, say, the High Country near Melbourne or Canberra. The cooler, wetter weather can disrupt your moving plans, so learn how to make a winter home removal successful with these tips.

Don't load if it's damp!

Furniture and musical instruments can warp or spot when exposed to excessive dampness or rain. The removalists or you should cover wooden items with a tarp if it is raining or drizzling outside when they arrive or you arrive at your new home. The best way to protect timber floors from wet feet is to use waterproof mats.

The removalists will take extra care to protect your floors from wet shoes or boots, but you can take additional precautions by laying plastic near the entrance. Maintain a clean entrance with rugs and doormats, along with extra cleaning rags.

Make sure slippery spots are protected!

Rain can make smooth surfaces slippery. Keeping your removalists from slipping will slow their work down. The removalists will be able to finish the job on time if they use old, cut-up cardboard boxes, rags, rugs, mats, or other non-slip items.

Weather Alerts

During torrential rains, low-lying areas might flood if the weather report predicts torrential rains. If flooding is a concern, plan your route accordingly. If it is snowing or icy, drive slowly.

It is possible that our team of removalists may never have encountered the frost and snow on the roads that you may encounter in areas like the High Country, Canberra, Tasmania, and other parts south. Your new home is just a short drive away, but if it’s a long drive, for example an interstate removal, it makes it all the more important. Take your time. In case your car breaks down, pack plenty of warm clothing so you're prepared to wait for help. Make sure your new house is warm when you arrive by turning on the heat before you move in.

Take out an insurance policy!

Despite City Removalists efforts, accidents can happen during the loading, transporting, and unloading of your belongings. In winter, when wet or cold weather conditions are common, we recommend that all customers purchase removals insurance.
