Each season has its own merits when it comes to moving, but summer is best for many families. Since the kids are on vacation, there will be less impact on their sleep schedules and daily routines. Work can also be lighter during this season especially for teachers, so it’s easier to free up time for all the preparations.
That said, summer heat can be a pain to deal with. If you’re planning to book your move with your trusted moving company in Irvine, California during the sunny months, here’s what you need to do.
Be safe in the heat.
Moving is such a physically intensive activity that you can work up a sweat even in the colder months. To fight the summer heat, make sure to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. You should also add some light snacks and sports drinks to your moving checklist.
Take care of your moving crew on a hot day.
It doesn’t hurt to be a little thoughtful to your movers. Adding extra cold, damp towels and drinks can be a huge help for them. They may have already worked on multiple bookings that day and may have more to go. Helping them cool up and hydrated will make them more efficient.
Provide shade for the kids and pets.
With the house full of movers, equipment, and boxes, there might be a few shady spots for pets and kids to stay out of the heat. Your doors will also be open for an extended time, making air-conditioning unreliable. Arrange your kids to stay with a friend or relative that day and check-in the animals at a pet daycare to keep them safe.
Whatever the season, any move will benefit from plenty of advanced planning. Ask your movers for more tips on keeping everything organized during your summer move.
