Moving during the summer months or in a high-humidity locale is not ideal. In fact, moving in extreme heat can be dangerous if you don’t take precaution. Of course, it’s always a great idea to move during early morning or late evening hours. Staying hydrated is important too! The recommendation is eight ounces of water eight times per day. Of course, if you live in hotter or more humid climates, are pregnant or breastfeeding or have specific health needs, it never hurts to increase your water intake. But what else can you do to keep cool during a big move? Here are some helpful tips on how to move without breaking a sweat!
Moving Help ®
One of easiest and most efficient ways to keep cool during your move is to…have someone else do it! Moving Help® is a great resource to find local helpers in your area and the process of booking them is simple! Visit Moving Help® and follow these steps:
- Choose your location and moving date and time
- Read reviews and choose the Moving Helpers® that best suite your needs and budget
- Choose the number of Moving Helpers® and amount of time needed
They’ll load all of your belongings into your moving truck or trailer. Easy Peasy! But wait! They can do more than that! They can even pack your belongings for you or drive your moving truck to its destination. You can also select Moving Helpers® that are local to your destination, so they can do all of the unloading for you!
Let’s face it! Spending multiple days inside of a moving truck can leave you feeling (and smelling) less than fresh. There’s a fantastic alternative to relocating your belongings from your old home to your new one.
U-Box® containers are portable storage containers that are shipped locally or across country. You can fit approximately one and a half rooms worth of belongings into one U-Box® container. They are picked up at your home and delivered to your new one. This is also a fantastic option if you’re heading to college!
Remember those Moving Helpers® we mentioned earlier? Yep…they can load your U-Box® for you too!
You can avoid making an unnecessary trip to the store out in the blazing sun by pre-ordering your moving boxes and packing supplies online and having them shipped to your home just in time to pack up the house!
