There’s no going around the fact that relocating can be highly stressful for every household member. You will have to hire the right people to help you move and you will also have to pay attention that no damage occurs to your valuables.

According to a study, 45% of the surveyed have reported that moving is one of the most stressful events in their life. Since that’s the case, we’ve decided to share some advice to will make moving at least bearable.

Find the right people

Moving is not a quick and easy process, you will need a helping hand. The first step you need to take is to contact all your relatives and friends and check whether they are willing to help you out.

If that’s not possible, it’s not the end of the world. You can always find movers for a fair price but, you will have to take into account the season. Certain months can be extremely busy and you won’t be able to book their service. Due to that limitation, it’s for the best if you hire movers well in advance.

Bear in mind that in-season services might be pricier than usual. To avoid forking out a serious amount of cash, you can arrange a mid-month and a weekday move. If you are planning to move on the weekend like most people, expect to pay a little bit more.

With all that said, don’t forget the most important thing, having cash on hand for the movers’ tip.

Protect your valuables

It’s very easy to damage precious items during the moving process. So, to avoid that altogether, you need to find the right solution. Cramming things in boxes is not something uncommon, but not what we would advise. But, if you still want to go that route, consider stuffing blankets, pillows, or other soft materials in your boxes with fragile items in the Jk cabinets.

If you want your valuables to be secure, consider storing them temporarily in a self-storage unit. This is also a great idea since your move might get delayed or prolonged. If that happens, a storage facility with round-the-clock surveillance and controlled temperature will ensure that your valuables and other items are in the same condition as when you deposited them.

On the other hand, if you don’t use certain items anymore, there’s no need to drag them with you to your new place. You can use social media to schedule a donation pickup so that someone can take the items you don’t use anymore off your hands.

Don’t forget your pets

Moving can also be extremely stressful for your pets. Since we all consider pets as an extended part of our family, it’s only normal if you want to ensure that your pet doesn’t get affected by stress.

To ensure that, you can ask a family member or a friend to keep an out on your pet until you finalize your move.

Take heat into account

During summer temperatures can reach a peak which can lead to dehydration. To avoid feelings ill and dehydrated, also keep a couple of water bottles around for you and the movers you hired.

You can also wake up early in the morning to beat the heat, but if you are not an early bird, electrolytes and sunscreen are a must. In addition to that, try to eat light meals full of vitamins and nutrients and avoid protein so that your energy levels don’t dip.

Furthermore, the clothes you wear should be lightweight, loose-fitting, and breathable, made from materials such as linen or cotton.

Avoid synthetic fabrics like polyester and stick with light-colored clothes. For staying cool in the scorching sun, whites and neutrals will be your best bet. It’s not a bad idea to break out the hats and sunglasses as well.

Final Thoughts

Moving during the summer can be a very difficult and stressful process even with pastel colors on walls. For that reason, you need to be prepared and plan well ahead before you hire the movers. In addition to that, pay attention to the heat and don’t forget to stay hydrated.

Moreover, if you have valuables don’t hesitate to store them in a self-storage facility where you will know they will be safe and undamaged.
