How to Move During The Summer

In some ways, moving in the summer is easier than moving during the winter. You don’t have to contend with snow, ice or harsh winds while you pack or unload your moving truck. That being said, there are certain factors that can making moving during the summer a challenge of its own. If you’re preparing for a move this summer, here are a few tips to help you make that transition as smooth as possible.

Take Care of Your Body

If you’re going to be spending the day out in the sun lifting heavy furniture and boxes, it’s important that you take care of your body. Moving takes a lot of physical energy, and lots of physical activity can be exhausting and difficult during periods of extreme heat. Make sure to have plenty of water available to keep yourself hydrated. Wear loose and breezy clothing so that you can stay comfortable while you move. If you’re moving in the heat, remember to go slow and take breaks when you need them—trying to rush through a move during the summer can lead to exhaustion, heat stroke, and accidents.

Lighten the Load

Ease the physical strain of moving by reducing the amount of stuff you have to transport. Before the move, carefully go through all of your items and decide what you want to throw out and what can be donated or given away. If you do that before the move, you’ll save yourself time and energy while packing and alleviate some of the physical pressure of moving in the heat.

Protect Heat Sensitive Items

Some items can get damaged from prolonged exposure to the sun or high temperatures. Keep these items cool and safe with a self-storage unit. Some of our locations at Migson Public Storage offer temperature-controlled storage units so you can keep your sensitive items protected against environmental damage while you move. Browse our list of storage unit types and find out how we can help you have a more relaxed move this summer.
