Moving on a hot day
Summer is the busiest period for moving. Many people choose summer months because the school year ends and the weather conditions are convenient. However, a hot summer day can be as tricky as a cold winter day. Many people don’t prepare themselves appropriately so we made for you this list that should be taken into consideration.
Food and drink
The temperature can be high, and you will be preoccupied with moving procedure, so you may forget that you need to stay hydrated. Prepare several bottles of water for you and your family, and for the movers, as well. Juice or some soda can be alternative if you prefer it over the water. But avoid coffee and alcoholic drinks. Don’t forget to make some sandwiches or snacks also. Even though the high temperature can decrease your appetite, you need the strength to get through the day. Take some breaks to eat and drink; your health is more important than anything else.
Once you see the weather conditions for the moving day and realize it will probably be unbearably hot, you may want to start as early as possible. Try avoiding doing any physical work between 11 am and 4 pm. When you schedule your moving date decide on the time with movers. Pick a morning or evening because although the day may be warm and sunny, mornings and evening hours are pleasant and more convenient.
When you are moving, whether the movers take out and unpack the things or you, you should wear some old clothes. You never know what can happen and if you spill something, it is better to ruin some old clothes. Equally important is that you must feel comfortable. Choose some loose T-shirt and sweatpants. As for the shoes, avoid wearing sandals and flip-flops. Although they sound more comfortable, they are not very practical. You will go up and down, back and forth and the sneakers are much better option.
We are sure that air condition sounds good, but watch out for the temperature. The difference between the outside and inside temperature must not be too big because it is not healthy. Be careful if you have kids, pets and elderly; they should be inside and not in the sun. Also, some electronics can be damaged by heat so make sure they are not left out in the sun too long.
