  1. Leaves

    1. Falling leaves adds an air of wholesome Fall marvel to the season. Despite that, leaves piled on walkways can cause a hazard to our movers and your belongings. Recently fallen or damp leaves can make for a slippery surface, creating problems for movers carrying your belongings to avoid. Before the local or cross country movers coming to your house, make sure all steps and outdoor walkways are clean. Our movers and your possessions will be much obliged.

  2. Rain

    1. Autumn also carries its share of soggy weather. If it’s rainy on your moving day, relax! Corrigan will safeguard your home with rug runners and carpet cling to make sure your home stays clean. Furthermore, your furniture is covered and protected from the weather while being loaded to the moving truck. If it’s raining heavily, the team can try to stack boxes and furnishings nearby the entrance, so the movers can load the truck in 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 bear in mind. Even if you’re not moving to a coastal state, hurricanes and dangerous weather occurrences can influence the whole transportation industry. Shipments can be postponed or change routes during major storms, affecting every other shipment scheduled for that truck and the cross country movers. Keeping patience during these major storms is essential, as we work to find the fastest and safest solutions for all involved. If a further wait is needed due to storm damage nearby your new home, Corrigan will work with you to find storage solutions to fulfill your needs.

  4. Cold Weather

    1. On moving day, the crew will prep your home to adjust to their easiest and quickest methods for getting the truck loaded. This implies at least one entrance to your home will be open for most of the day. With cooler temps upon us, that implies your home will get chilly! Plan to leave out a some warm clothes and a jacket from the packed boxes to keep warm. Additionally, setting up a small place for yourself inside a room to warm up is a wonderful method to stay comfy during the day. Add in 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 usually unpredictable. This can make it tough to pack when you’re frequently swapping between shorts and sweaters. Be certain to leave a few items of clothing from any season unpacked, so you can keep yourself comfy regardless of the temps of the day! Setting aside varied 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!
