Did you know that summer is better known as the moving peak season? It’s no wonder why summer’s more popular than the other parts of the year. The housing market blooms everywhere during this season. In other words, house buying reaches its peak during summer. But, because of sometimes harsh weather moving during the summer season can turn into a nightmare. Alright, that’s a bit far off. Anyway, it can get really annoying. Weather is not always so friendly, and it can somehow make people pretty nervous. Well, it’s kind of obvious. Not everyone likes grains of sweat rolling down their face while doing something serious. In the article below you’ll find some helpful tips for moving during the summer season. Stay tuned.
Hire movers way ahead of time
As we’ve mentioned, summer’s the busiest season for moving. Therefore, moving companies have a lot of work on their hands. You should call them up way before things get hectic. That way you’ll ensure they’ll have the time to organize your relocation. Also, it’s always better not to do things at the last minute. Like you didn’t know that, right?
Going DIY? Start early
If you’re going DIY and skipping on the hiring professional movers part, that’s alright. We’ve got a suggestion for you, also. Start your move early in the morning. Anything before 8 AM is alright. The temperature is mild, and the traffic’s still not that harsh. If you for some reason can’t make it in the morning, wait until evening hours. Anyway, if you can – avoid moving when the temperatures are the highest.
Wear light clothes
You’ll need to this if you want to avoid unnecessary sweating. You’d probably do that even without this suggestion, but it doesn’t hurt to mention. Wearing light clothes, avoiding black color (as it will attract the sun) and synthetic apparel will do the job. Of course, when we say light it doesn’t mean you should dress as if you were going to the beach. So, keep that in mind.
Prepare bottled water for the road
It’s for the best you prepare bottled water for the road. Even if you’ve hired professional movers, it can still come in handy. They’ll gladly accept the water when the weather gets pretty hot. If you have a transportable fridge, even better. There’ll be cold refreshing water for everyone.
Turn the AC in your new home
Now, this option is available if you live close by. Turn on the AC in your new home, before moving gets underway. This way you’ll do a favor to everybody. Your new home will be a cool working environment and the process of moving in during the summer season will seem pretty easy.
