Beat that heat!
The best way to start that summer move is to plan for an early morning or evening start. Beat that mid-afternoon heat! Try to control your hydration and heat levels. Take a minute break to cool-down. Make sure to offer your moving crew water and trips into an air-conditioned dwelling to cool down.
Plan Your Transportation beforehand
If you’re moving a significant number of your belongings, especially furniture, you better rent a moving vehicle from a company in your area. This can save you time, reduce stress and ensure that your transportation needs are covered on the day of the move.
Don’t Be Shy to Ask for Help
Moving is physically and mentally exhausting. If you’re planning a big move this summer, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help. Packing and moving all your items on your own takes a lot of time and lifting large objects without additional assistance can result in injury and damage to the items you are moving. To make moving simple and stress-free, ask friends and family for help on your moving day. If you decide to hire professional movers to help you with your big-ticket items be sure to schedule ahead.
Don’t Save On Packing Supplies
To ensure the well-being of your items and reduce stress on your move, invest in quality packing supplies to keep your belongings well-sorted and adequately supported. Boxes, bubble-wrap, packing tape, and furniture covers are all essentials for any move, and they’re all available in the nearest store.
Choose a Storage Facility
There are many self-storage facilities to choose from in most major cities, but that doesn’t mean units are always available. If you know you’re going to need storage for your summer move, we recommend looking for a storage facility before the moving process. Summer can be a busy time for storage facilities. Choose a facility that’s close to your home to avoid a lengthy drive from your property. It’s important to take an inventory of everything you plan to store and choose a storage unit size that accommodates your needs.
