Moving day has arrived! You’re packed, the rental truck or movers are outside, and despite your hope for a sunny day, black clouds are moving in promising ruined furniture and soaked boxes.
Moving in difficult weather doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Being prepared and following some simple steps will help protect your belongings and save you on the anxiety.

Whether the moving crew actually loses a box or great-grandma’s cherished crystal ends up stuffed in with the tools, it seems as if there is no way around the possibility of losing something!
