Stress builds up during the moving process. Your list of things to do gets longer, as the countdown to move day gets shorter. The staff at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® knows exactly how hard the process can be – we do it everyday! We want to help customers who are going through one of the most stressful times in their life. So we’ve compiled a list of summer moving hints that will help you “keep your cool” in the midst of your planning:
Pack a little bit at a time. There’s a fine line between packing too early, when you’ll still need to use your things, and packing too late, where you rush at the end and fret over whether you have everything organized. By packing one room at a time (minus he essentials), you’ll save time and anxiety while your house is in disarray.
Find a climate-controlled storage facility. When relocating long distance, you may want to keep your belongings in a storage facility. As its summertime, certain items need to be kept in a climate-controlled environment. Electronics, certain clothing, and documents all need climate control. We can recommend some of the best storage units locally before your move, and can load or unload at any of these facilities if you already use storage.
Hydrate on the day of the move. Our movers know the importance of hydration when moving heavy furniture and boxes. We tell customers to stay hydrated themselves; you’re likely going to do some of the packing yourself, and the added stress of moving will cause your body to lose more water than usual. Especially in the summer heat, make sure to have plenty of water or juice close by to sip on while the movers are working.
Plan well in advance. You’ll always forget something the first time you pack. The sooner you start making your checklists and making the final phone calls, the better off you’ll be on moving day. When you know you’re prepared, you won’t have nearly as much to worry over or think about. Schedule your move a few weeks in advance to ensure TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is available on the day you wish to pack.
