Safe Moving During Summer Heat

This summer has been one of the hottest. The temperatures have been unpredictable, resulting in increased air conditioner use and more pool time to keep cool. People move during the summer because of the reduced rainfall and no chance of freezing temperatures. However, the summer heat has its disadvantages, too. While the warmer temps are perfect for summer activities, it isn’t always the best time for moving. Moving Pros of Kansas City is here to provide a few tips to ensure your move is successful and safe. 

  • Hydrate

Drink plenty of water! It is important that you drink enough so that you do not become dehydrated. It is easy to become overheated during the summer, especially when moving. Moving requires labor, which will make you overheated if you do not properly hydrate. Ice water and cold towels are an excellent idea when moving. 

  • Turn Air Conditioners On

Turning the air conditioner on in your new home is a smart choice. You will have a cool area to which you can escape between loads. This can really help reduce the chance of overheating. 

  • Take Breaks

When moving, you are working towards an end goal. Many times, people refuse to take a break until they finish. A few breaks during an all-day move can make a difference in your well-being and productivity. By taking a break, you have time to rest your body, cool down, eat, and hydrate. This goes a long way during a successful summer move. 

  • Move Certain Items in A Personal Vehicle

Certain items should not be moved in a moving truck during the summer. These items are usually ones that may leak or melt. This includes candles, plastic items, liquids, and paints. 

Listed above are just a few tips from the professional movers at Moving Pros. If you need affordable, yet friendly, certified moving services, give Moving Pros a call today! We guarantee a successful move, even on the warmest of days!
