Summer means many things to many people: long days, outdoor concerts, barbecues, and, for thousands, buying a new house or renting a new apartment.
Moving in summer is almost the same as in winter. You'll need to plan and order ahead, collect boxes, stay organized, and enlist the help of the best packers and movers or friends and family. However, there are some key differences when moving in the summer that you need to be aware of if you want a successful move.
These 8 tips will help you to get moving in summer smoothly
Plan in Advance: We've said it before, and you've probably heard it a thousand times: moving requires more planning. If you want to move in the summer, you need to be more up-to-date. This is the busiest season, local packers and movers book weeks in advance. So remember that even if you haven't moved for a few months, there's no such thing as too early.
Check the movement and don't stay. Just because you discover that the first three home shifting companies you contact are reserved, doesn't mean you've received a random list of people. Be diligent, do your research and ask for recommendations. And remember, just because it's busy doesn't mean you can't negotiate a better price.
Research Movers & Don’t Settle: Once everything is packed, take a few hours to relax and unwind. There's still work to be done, but that doesn't mean you have to rush. Get ice cream, go to the pool and have a mocktail or pizza- you win!
Move-In Day Preparation: The first thing to do is to clean your new home well. You'll also want to turn on the air conditioner, but once the truck arrives and you start moving stuff, the door will stay open for a long time, which means you'll just be sending money out the door. It is best to turn on the fan and wait for the air conditioner until you are done carrying things.
Involve Your Kids: What to do with kids – of all ages – on moving day is a big question. When it comes to this, there are two main options. One way is to arrange a babysitter or invite him to go to a friend's house. In many ways, this is the ideal choice, but many people think that it is best to choose the second option, which is to include them in the move. Since moving can be a difficult transition for children of all ages, helping them can give them a sense of belonging.
Stay Cool & Hydrated: The last thing you want is for your cat or dog to relax, which will make your day even more stressful. Send them to the animal nursery or ask a friend to watch over them. You'll probably be driving in 42-45 degrees and facing 95% humidity. Don't let the rising mercury bring you down. Prepare by loading the cooler with ice and filling it with water and soft drinks. In addition to cold drinks, plan meals for anyone who helps with movement. You will love the movers!
Take on Challenges with a Positive Attitude: To make the moving process a little more fun, think of packing, unpacking, and preparing your new home as one big jigsaw puzzle. Each square has its place and inside these boxes are things that will complete your home once the puzzle is complete!
