If you’re about to move, you’ve probably spent a lot of time preparing. Transferring the contents of one home to another is quite the undertaking! While you’re making all the necessary preparations to move, don’t forget to check the weather. Mother Nature can have an impact on your moving day. While the team at RJ Moving is trained to deal with all types of natural weather phenomena, it is still important to be aware of the weather forecast. If you are moving anywhere around Minnesota, like Minneapolis, professional moving services can greatly reduce the stress associated with moving. Help them help you by being prepared for adverse weather.


This is exactly what everyone wants for their move. If you have a fair day, take advantage of it. Help your movers by being prepared so they can complete your move quickly and efficiently. Have parking available and boxes packed.


Rain poses a couple of problems. First and foremost, you need to protect your items. If you’re going to be using cardboard boxes, it may be a good idea to shrink-wrap them in case of adverse weather. Any furniture will need to be covered, especially if its cloth or wood. It is common practice for us to wrap furniture in a blanket, but an added layer of plastic won’t hurt. Another concern on a rainy day is slippery conditions. Be patient with your movers and help to make their job as easy as possible.


Snow on your moving day can be a real bummer. Extra precautions and considerations will need to be made on a snowy day. Be sure to remove snow and ice from your driveway, walkways, stairs and porches before your movers arrive. Also, don’t forget about the end location. The safety of our customers and our employees is our number one priority, so be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
