Summer is officially here, which means it’s now officially the most popular time of the year for moving. Of course, moving during the summer months can be challenging. You need to make sure everyone stays hydrated and takes necessary breaks in the shade. You also need to make sure your air conditioning is set up at your new place before you (and your movers!) arrive.
To help make your summer move a little bit easier for everyone involved, here are a few tips you can use to help make sure everyone stays safe.
Make sure you have water
Summertime means moving in high temperatures, often in direct sunlight. Because you and your moving companies are putting in a lot of work, you’re going to be sweating a lot. It’s important to make sure that everyone is drinking enough water to keep heat exhaustion at bay. Dehydration isn’t fun and it can even be dangerous. Consider buying a case of water bottles and keep some at your new place and some at your old place. You can also use reusable water bottles.
Put your electric utility in your name
If you haven’t put your new place’s electricity in your name yet, it’s important to do it before your big move. Once it’s in your name, you can set up your air conditioning to make sure your new apartment or house is nice and cool for when you and your moving companies arrive. It also ensures that your refrigerator is up and running to help keep your water (and your food) cool, too.
Get professional help
If you’re moving during the summer months, it’s a good idea to reach out to your local moving companies to hire professional moving services. Up to 44% of individuals and 38% of businesses hire professional movers. Moving services have years of experience moving during all sorts of weather. With professional movers, you don’t have to worry as much about making sure everyone is taking necessary breaks and hydrating. Professional movers already know when to pause and hydrate to avoid injury.
