START WITH PLANNING THE RELOCATING DATE PROPERLY
Normally, people tend to relocate in the first days of each month. But keep in mind that moving closer to midmonth can be advantageous. It’s always easier to schedule a moving day with movers in the period of 10th and 20th dates each month, because a lot of people are relocating whether in the beginning or end of the month. Take in consideration hallways, elevators that are less crowded or stairs in buildings.
THINK OF HEAT WHILE PACKING
Forget about frustration of the move if you prepared well. Needless to say, the first step in actually relocating is the packing itself. As you are the one who has packed all your possessions, keep in mind that things that needs air conditioning for storing well in the house may perish due to the high temperature inside of a moving van. The heat can damage or destroy items such as non-perishable foods, candles, and CDs or DVDs. Also, some of the bottled goods may not do well when it’s too hot and may expand in volume, causing a huge mess if they start leaking. We advice keeping all these things in one place to offload first, or consider carrying them in your own car.
DON’T FORGET TO DRESS APPROPRIATE
Of course you don’t want to put the outfit that suggests you are going to the beach, but wearing clothes that are cool and comfy can be more useful for unpacking. Clothes that are heavy or dark coloured will take in the heat and sunlight, and will making it too hot and less easy for you. Remember to use sunscreen if you are spending time outside of the house or in and out a lot on relocation day. You do not want to celebrate relocation into a new place by dealing with some painful sunburn.
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO USE AIR CONDITIONER
While relocating, you may need to be in and out of your home and truck all day. Using air conditioning while in the house or vehicle will help you cool down again. These breaks from the hot temperatures will help you avoid experiencing too much heat while moving, and AC in the new apartment will ensure that your long day is rewarded with a cool and enjoyable home after the whole unpacking process.
DRINK A LOT OF WATER
Dehydration is common during a summer workout and moving qualifies as a workout. Keep a water bottle near you throughout your move so that you can take a sip between boxes to stay refreshed all day. Also, reusing the same bottle makes it easy to keep track of how much you are drinking so you can ensure that you’re staying hydrated.
