Summer is a very popular time for moving, but it isn’t without its challenges. There are plenty of things that you need to keep in mind to maximize your moving ability in the heat of summer. If you’ve already taken a look at your basic moving tips for year-round movers, consider these summer specific tips that will help you get through your move on a hot summer day.
Have an Emergency Bag Packed
Depending on how far you’re moving, you might want one, or two extra changes of clothes with you in a backpack, along with some food & water, your wallet, any other important documents you might need. While a bag like this is great to have during a move of any season, it’s especially important to have a change of clothes in the hot weather because you might sweat through your first change of clothes.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen
The sun during the summer is no joke. Even when wearing clothing and hats, it’s good to protect your neck, nose, arms or any other exposed areas of your skin while you are moving things from your home to your moving vehicle. Moving is already tough, and the last thing you need is a sunburn making it tougher.
Be Mindful of Your Footwear
We all know that in warmer weather people like to wear sandals and even flip flops. While sandals might help you keep cool on any other day, they are not the shoes you should be wearing when you move. When carrying large furniture, sandals can get caught on chair legs or other protruding parts. They can also slip more easily when walking up and down stairs. We recommend wearing sturdy shoes such as sneakers, running shoes, or even boots are a good option.
