Let’s face it, there’s no perfect time of year for a long-distance move, especially in the Pacific Northwest!
Nobody wants to ice-skate down their driveway with a microwave in their arms. If you move in the spring, you’re sure to track in mud. If you move in the fall, you’ll have leaves everywhere.
Moving in the summertime can leave you sweating—but, if you follow these suggestions, you’re sure to keep your cool through any relocation.
1. Start Early
Get started early by contacting a professional household mover for a free in-home estimate. Scheduling the rest will be easier once that part is done, as many movers are booked fast in the summer months.
2. Leave It to the Pros
If you start worrying about your packing skills while your favorite wine glasses are being loaded onto the truck, you’ll be sweating again—so it’s best to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals.
3. Pack a Cooler (or Two)
While you’re at it, pack a cooler with ice, bottled water, and other favorite beverages so that you’ll have plenty on-hand once the refrigerator is shut down. Keep in mind that some moving services will help you out by delivering your unwanted food to a local charity.
4. Hang Some Plastic
By hanging some plastic sheeting over the door(s) that the movers will be using and cutting a slit for them to pass through, you’ll keep most of that air-conditioned air inside where you want it.
5. Relax and Enjoy the Ride
Just remember to bring pets, plants, essential documents, and any heat-sensitive belongings in your personal vehicle for the ride to your new home.
