  1. Leaves

    1. Falling leaves adds a component of wholesome Fall marvel to the season. Still, leaves piled on walkways can create a risk to our movers and your furniture. Newly fallen or damp leaves can make for a slippery surface, making it difficult for movers carrying your items to navigate. Ahead of the local or cross country movers coming to your home, ensure all steps and exterior sidewalks are free of debris. Our movers and your belongings will be much obliged.

  2. Rain

    1. Fall also has its fair share of soggy weather. If it rains on your moving day, have no fear! Corrigan will protect your house with carpet cling and rug runners to ensure your home stays clean. Additionally, your furnishings are wrapped and protected from the elements while being carried to the moving truck. If it’s raining heavily, the team can try to stage boxes and furnishings near the door, so the movers can load the truck over dry (or at least, dryer) spells. And remember, Corrigan will never cancel or reschedule moves because of rain.

  3. Hurricanes

    1. If you’re getting ready to move cross country, hurricane season is something to bear in mind. Even if you aren’t moving to a coastal state, hurricanes and significant weather occurrences can impact the complete transportation industry.

If a prolonged wait is needed from storm damage near your new home, Corrigan will work with you to find storage solutions to meet your requirements.

  4. Cold Weather

This suggests at least one door to your home will be open for most of the day. With cooler temps upon us, that implies your house will get cold! Remember to leave out a sweater or jacket from your packed boxes to stay warm. Moreover, creating a small place for yourself inside a room to warm up is a great way to stay comfy during the day. Grab a blanket and a hot cup of coffee or cider, and you’ll be comfy and cozy the entire day!

    1. Fall weather can be unpredictable. That can make it tough to pack when you are always swapping between shorts and sweaters. Ensure to leave some items of clothing from any season unpacked, so you can stay comfy despite the temperature of the day!
