Beat the Summer Heat During Your Texas MovePosted on: Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Summer is the busiest season of the year for the moving industry, but no matter what time of year you are moving there are many preparations you need to make in order to have a smooth relocation. Whether you are working with a Residential Houston Moving Company such as N.C. Texas Moving or handling your move yourself, make sure that you are ready for the big day ahead.
Protect your valuables: The heat, especially in moving vans, can be dangerous for some of your belongings. If possible, plan to move these items with you. If it isn’t possible, make sure that you protect them from damage as much as possible and label the boxes properly to ensure these belongings are loaded last and unloaded first.
Refreshments: Take necessary breaks for refreshments to keep hydrated and keep motivated. It may appear quicker to just keep moving, but short breaks will keep everyone energized and move your relocation along more quickly.
Budget right: When you are moving, your doors are likely to be open all day long, so it is important that you either budget ahead of time for the extra expense of cooling your home or turn off the A/C.
Set up your utilities: Have your utilities for your new home arranged before you even hit the road. You don’t want to spend your first night in your new home desperately trying to keep cool because you forgot to have the electricity turned on.
Dress right. This one might seem like common sense, but it never hurts as a reminder to dress appropriately for the weather.
