Summer is one of the most popular times of year to move, so if you are one of those people packed up and ready to move into a new apartment, it is crucial to be prepared. Moving into an apartment during the summer peak sometimes can’t be the most comfortable situation, but with a couple of tips, it can be a lot more manageable. Read on to learn how to survive your summer apartment move a little bit more!
Set Your Apartment Move Out Date
Since the summertime is the busiest season for moving in and out, it is important to pick the right move-out date. If you decide on a busy weekend, like the last weekend of June or the 4th of July (both of which have thankfully passed), you will likely have trouble finding movers at a reasonable rate. Begin booking your apartment move as soon as you can, and try to schedule it for a weekday to save yourself a bit of cash.
Protect Heat Sensitive Items for the Apartment Move
You will also have to take into account the weather of the day you move, as hot temperatures can be hazardous to specific items. Make sure to protect all of your heat-sensitive items while they’re stored in a warm moving truck. This includes all plants, electronics, candles, and anything that could be damaged by heat. If possible, transport all of your smaller electronic devices in your personal vehicle to keep your items cooled with air conditioning. Also, pack up all of your electronics in its original packaging for the ideal protection.
Keep Yourself Safe While Moving
The heat isn’t the only thing that is dangerous for your sensitive items, but it could also be dangerous for your long-term health! Intense heat from sunlight can not only make the apartment move unpleasant and sweaty, but it could also cause exhaustion and dehydration. Keep yourself hydrated all day with ice cold water, and take breaks when you’re feeling a bit tired. If you can, attempt to schedule your move in the early morning to avoid the afternoon heat as much as possible. Make sure to wear lightweight clothes with breathable fabrics, a hat to protect yourself, and some sunglasses to shield your eyes from the intense and harmful sun. And as always, in the summer, make sure to apply sunscreen to protect your skin.
