#9 Towel Dry Things as You Go
This simple, proactive measure can save you considerable time and stress, ensuring your possessions arrive at their new home in the same condition they left the old one. By promptly wiping down boxes and furniture while loading them onto the relocation truck, you not only protect your belongings from potential water damage, mold, and mildew, but you also ensure the safety of the movers.
Wet surfaces can be slippery, increasing the risk of slips and mishandled items. As we already mentioned, moisture can weaken the structural integrity of cardboard boxes, leading to the unfortunate event of the box breaking and its contents spilling out. Having towels on standby allows for swift action, ensuring that each item is as dry as possible before it’s stowed away.
