The pitFALLs of an Autumn Move

The weather near Auburn Hills has cooled, children are back in the classroom, and you are moving! The Fall is an excellent time to schedule a move, but each season brings its own challenges. Whether or not you’re starting to search for local movers or going for a larger change of scenery and require cross country movers, ensure your autumn relocation will be full of just treats and no tricks! By taking a little additional time organizing and getting ready, your next move will be as perfect as the caramel on your apples.

We’ve compiled the top 5 difficulties for moving during Autumn and came up with tried and true ways to overcome each one. Pour yourself a warm drink, take your snuggliest blanket and let’s ensure your approaching Auburn Hills-area move is unforgettable for all the right reasons!

  1. Leaves

    1. Falling leaves adds an air of wholesome Fall marvel to the season. However, leaves dropped on sidewalks can pose a risk to our movers and your household items. Freshly fallen or damp leaves can make for a slippery surface, causing difficulties for movers carrying your belongings to navigate. Prior to the local or cross country movers coming to your home, be sure all porches and exterior sidewalks are clear. Our movers and your things will thank you!

  2. Rain

    1. Fall also brings its amount of soggy weather. If it’s rainy on your moving day, relax! Corrigan will protect your house with carpet cling and rug runners to ensure your house stays clean. Furthermore, your furnishings are covered and protected from the elements while being loaded to the moving truck. If it’s raining heavily, the crew can try to stage boxes and furniture near the entrance, so the movers can load the truck during dry (or at least, dryer) spells. And keep in mind, Corrigan never cancels or reschedules moves due to rain.

  3. Hurricanes

    1. If you are planning to move cross country, hurricane season is important to keep in mind. Even if you aren’t moving to a coastal state, hurricanes and dangerous weather events can affect the complete transportation industry. Shipments can be late or change routes during large storms, impacting every other shipment on the agenda for that truck and the cross country movers. Packing patience through these significant storms is important, as we try to discover the fastest and safest solutions for all involved. If a longer delay is required because of storm damage close to your new home, Corrigan will work with you to come up with storage solutions to meet your requirements.

  4. Cold Weather

    1. On moving day, the crew will get your home ready to adapt to their fastest and safest methods for getting the truck loaded. This means at least one door to your house will be open for most of the day. With cooler weather upon us, that implies your home will get chilly! Be prepared to leave out a jacket or sweater from your packed boxes to keep warm. Moreover, creating a small place for yourself inside a room to warm up is a wonderful idea to keep yourself comfortable during the day. Add a blanket and a hot cup of coffee or cider, and you’ll be comfy and cozy throughout the day!

  5. Seasonal Clothes

    1. Autumn weather is commonly unpredictable. That can make it difficult to pack when you’re regularly switching between shorts and sweaters. Be certain to leave some articles of clothing from each season unpacked, so you can stay comfortable regardless of the temperature of the day! Setting aside multiple clothing packed in a small suitcase will help you stay appropriately dressed for the day, regardless of what Mother Nature throws at your cross country or local move!
