Moving Your Business in the Rain

Rain is unavoidable and unfortunately, despite the meteorologist’s best efforts, it is not always predictable. Even when you watch the weather faithfully and schedule your move for a bright and sunny day, it can turn out to be grey and rainy. Moving in the rain may seem trickier than moving on a fair day and you may be tempted to reschedule. After all, you can’t have damage occur to your floors, furniture, and equipment. We at The Quality Group understand your concerns, which is why when the weather decides to take a downward turn we ramp up our efforts.

We never want you to have to reschedule your move because we know you’re on a tight schedule. The Quality Group will move you into your new place on time despite any rain and we’ll make sure your property is well protected.

When your company ends up moving in the rain we take steps to ensure your floors are well protected from the water that will undoubtedly be tracked into the office. We protect your floors with a sturdy layer of floor protection. Where ever we need to walk in order to load up your equipment we’ll lay down the layer of floor protection so your floors stay in great condition. We will also put some protection outside the doors that will capture and knock off any excess debris we pickup so it doesn’t get tracked into your office.You don’t have to worry about water and mud damaging your floors when moving with The Quality Group.

Shielding Your Furniture

Another concern of yours during a move in the rain may be your furniture and equipment getting wet. When we move your property from your old building to the truck and then into your new office you might think it’s the perfect opportunity for your property to become sodden with extra moisture. We address that concern by shielding your furniture and equipment with a thorough layering of waterproof plastic. We wrap all your furniture and equipment with the waterproof plastic so your equipment stays safe and dry.

Safe Driving

Safety is always a concern when the roads are slippery due to rain. The Quality Group knows that poor weather conditions could jeopardize your move if not properly prepared for the rain. We counter poor weather with extreme caution, professional drivers, and highly maintained moving trucks. We take extra care when driving in rain and we maintain all safety precautions for driving in inclement weather to ensure your move is successful. We also take the time to check that our trucks are in top condition before every move and double check tire traction. You’ll have one less thing to worry about during a move in the rain with The Quality Group.

With rain comes the possibility of tracking water and mud into your space. While we lay down two layers of floor protection to safeguard your flooring, sometimes that stray drop of water or mud finds its way to an unprotected area. This can be a major concern, as you don’t want your old or new office floors dirtied and wet. If that becomes the case when moving in the rain, rest assured that The Quality Group cleans up after moving your items. You won’t have to worry that your office will be dirty after we finish moving you.

In addition, our special process provides an extra precaution to ensure water and mud won’t be tracked into your office. When we pack your items they never touch the ground and we don’t stack items on top each other when moving your office. Your items stay on the dolly the entire time when being loaded and unloaded. There is no opportunity for mud, asphalt, or dirt to attach itself to the bottom of your property when moving. This is just one more way The Quality Group prevents your move in the rain from causing you extra work.

Moving in the rain might sound like your worst nightmare but The Quality Group takes extra measures during bad weather to ensure your move runs as smoothly as if the weather was sunny. Rain or shine, we do whatever it takes to move you into your new office on time.
