While there are certain aspects you cannot avoid when it comes to hot weather, being prepared shouldn’t be one of them.
If you anticipate warm and humid weather for your upcoming move day, be sure to have plenty of loose-fitting, lightweight clothes on hand. It can be quite miserable to move with wet clothes so avoid synthetic fabrics, such as rayon and polyester. Wear breathable light-colored fabrics, such as cotton and linens. Black and dark-colored clothing will absorb more sunlight, while light colors will stay cool under the warm sun. Do not be caught off guard.
Other key elements to keep you cool and protected are quality sunglasses and a hat. The sun is powerful and the rays can be harmful so remember to protect your head and face.
HAVE SOME ITEMS PROFESSIONALLY PACKED
While you may choose to pack your items, such as clothes, linens, dishes and such, consider hiring a professional mover to pack your treasures and electronics.
Let’s say you have a few cherished record albums that absolutely cannot get hot (as they may warp in the hot sun) or that new stereo system you have saved your precious dollars for – hire an experienced moving company to professionally pack those expensive items to help prevent damage.
Why not let the expert movers at Stewart Moving and Storage, who are trained on how to lift those heavy electronics, package vintage record albums and precious art pieces carefully, getting them wrapped and out of your home SAFELY.
BOTTLED WATER AVAILABLE
There are a few beneficial reasons to have water at hand, whether you are moving during the hot weather or not. You are going to sweat more than usual during the warm months and it is key to stay hydrated.
You could suffer severe symptoms from the heat if you do not replenish your body with enough H20 – some of these symptoms could include heat exhaustion, dizziness and spells of confusion can follow.
Be sure to have the water handy – as in your cooler, personal vehicle or kitchen counter of your new and your old place. This way, you will avoid any unwanted trips to the emergency room or long delays during the moving process. Time and your health are both of value.
UTILITIES ON BEFORE THE MOVE
Other beneficial reminders during either the hot or freezing cold winter months moves is the access to air conditioning or heat when you need it.
Switch the air conditioning on before you arrive at your new place. This way you can unpack in comfort and actually be more productive. You will have enough tasks to tackle during the move-in period – you do not need additional duties!
Here are some tips for moving in all types of weather.
Recommend that all members of your moving team douse themselves with a water-resistant sunscreen.
Completely cover your face, legs, arms, shoulders, ears (any exposed body part) with a strong SPF of 30 or higher. The last thing you need is a beefy-red sunburn to deal with as you will have several tasks after all of your boxes and furniture are moved in.
