Summer may be the most popular season to move in but it’s also the most uncomfortable. Between the extreme heat, booked weekends, and with the kids being out of school, relocating during the summer months can be a stressful experience.

At Booth Moving, we are committed to making your clients’ moves easier. Our professionals share 5 simple tips that are guaranteed to make any summer move a smooth transition:

Start the Day Early

Beat the high heat by starting your moving day as soon as you can. UV rays are the strongest between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. so aim to be inside during that window. An early start will not only keep you cool, but will also help you avoid getting stuck in rush hour traffic.

Wear the Right Clothing

Opt for clothing that’s lightweight and loose-fitting. Breathable fabrics, such as cotton and linen, will keep you dry and comfortable no matter how much you move during the day. 

Keep Bottled Water On-Hand

Staying hydrated is key to surviving a summer move. Be sure to pack enough water for your family and any moving help so that no one is hit with dehydration. Pack the water in a cooler and put it in a place that’s easily accessible so that it’s ready to grab when you need it.

Make Sure Your Utilities Are Set Up

The moment you pull up to your new abode, you’ll want to crank the air conditioning. Triple-check that your utilities are ready to go for the moment you arrive so that you can cool your new home down as soon as possible.

Be Generous with the Sunscreen

Many people will forego the sunscreen, thinking that they’ll be inside for most of the day. Even if you plan on hiding out in the A/C, it’s important to protect yourself with SPF just in case. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you head outside to ensure that you won’t be on the receiving end of a painful sunburn.
