Most homes are sold during warmer months, peaking during the sweltering summer heat. Families tend to move cities or homes in summer because of children not being in school, no busy seasons going on at work, or other obligation-free scenarios. Unfortunately, moving during the summer is more dangerous and physically exhausting than any other season.
Below are several tips to help save your body and mind when moving during summer months.
Date and time are key
Mornings are the coolest times of day outside of nighttime. Aiming to move in the early morning is helpful to staying hydrated, lessening exhaustion, and also beating traffic.
Because leases and employment contracts often end near the first or last days of months, moving near the middle of the month is helpful. More traffic will undoubtedly be on roadways during these periods, especially hefty moving vans and convoys.
Properly sort documents, clothing, and other items
DVDs and CDs warp and lose information when exposed to heat. Clothing can yellow or turn other colors if sunlight beams onto them. Paper documents, including tax information and children's projects, can yellow, fade or otherwise change in sunlight and heat.
Separate items that may be more sensitive to summer weather and store them in appropriate containers. Keep discs holding information in dark-colored, zipper-closed binders. Sensitive clothing should be kept in dark, closable containers or kept inside as long as possible. Paper documents should be kept in similar, climate-controlled conditions.
Separate important items
Highly valuable items including jewelry and mementoes should be kept on person in case of theft, misplacement, or weather damage. Any items in question should be kept on-hand, just in case.
