Best Weather for Moving and Why
Seattle is not known for its great weather. Grey skies and constant rain or drizzling are staples of Seattle weather. Not to mention the cold and snow-filled Washington winters. However, there are always a few times when the skies clear and the sun comes out. Our Seattle local movers at Established Moving & Storage know the best times to plan your move.
Moving when the weather is warm and sunny is ideal because it ensures all your belongings stay as dry as possible. Sunshine is a significant advantage of a summer move despite that time of year being peak moving season. So, if you’re locally moving in Seattle, consider doing so during the summer.
Another advantage of a summer move, particularly compared to a move during the spring months, is clear skies. Rain and moisture are the ultimate enemies to your belongings and therefore your Seattle local movers will try their hardest to work around those weather conditions. Depending on what you are bring out of your home and into the moving truck, rain can cause significant damage.
Wooden furniture that gets wet can warp. Damp couches and other furniture made with fabric can lead to mold growth. And of course, electronic appliances shouldn’t be exposed to large amounts of water or they may not start up once you plug them in your new place.
Avoid Snow and Mud
Snow and mud can also lead to unwanted moisture on your belongings when moving in Seattle. However, the more direct unfortunate result of snow and mud are dirty floors. While our Seattle local movers try to keep things clean, dirty floor outside of your home can make a move difficult.
