For those contemplating a move during this transitional period from summer to fall, there’s a unique charm to embarking on a new journey as the seasons shift. Whether you’re relocating to a new home or a fresh chapter of life, here are some expert tips from our moving professionals to ensure your end-of-summer move is as smooth as a summer sunset.
1. Embrace the Late-Summer Vibes:
The days are still long, allowing you ample time to organize and pack your belongings.
2. Plan Ahead:
End-of-summer is a popular time to move, so it’s important to plan well in advance. Book your moving company, secure your moving date, and ensure you have all the necessary supplies ready. The busiest section of the summer is over, pricing has fallen at Premier Relocations.
3. Declutter:
Before you start packing, take a summer-inspired approach to decluttering. Embrace the spirit of renewal by sorting through your belongings and letting go of items you no longer need.
4. Pack for the Transition:
Pack your summer essentials, like beach gear and outdoor furniture, last. This way, you can savor the final moments of the season until the very end.
5. Hydrate and Stay Cool:
Moving in the summer heat can be challenging. Keep yourself and your moving team hydrated with refreshing drinks. Consider having fans or portable air conditioners to provide relief during loading and unloading.
6. Preserve the Fragile:
Certain items may be more susceptible to heat and sunlight damage. Protect delicate items like artwork, electronics, and musical instruments from extreme temperatures.
7. Sunset Strategy:
If possible, schedule your moving activities during the cooler parts of the day – early morning or late afternoon. This way, you’ll avoid the scorching midday sun.
8. Sunshine-Friendly Packing:
Use protective covers for furniture and belongings that could be affected by direct sunlight. UV rays can cause fading and damage to materials over time.
9. Keep Essentials Handy:
Pack a “last-in, first-out” box with essentials like sunscreen, hats, swimsuits, and refreshments. This box will come in handy during those first few days in your new home.
