Summer is the prime time for moving. It is generally the busiest time for movers, so make sure to plan ahead and create a schedule to ease stress. Here is a checklist to make sure your move this summer is a breeze. 

PLAN AHEAD

As we said before, planning ahead is extremely important during a move! Moving companies fill up their schedules quickly, so make sure to browse 6-8 weeks ahead of time to guarantee your spot. Talk to several different moving companies and compare rates to save money. To avoid rushing around in the heat, pack your belongings several days or weeks before it’s time to go. 

SCHEDULE IN THE AM 

If you can, it’s a good idea to schedule the moving company to arrive in the morning while the temperature is still relatively cool. Continue to stay hydrated and remember to offer cold drinks to your movers as well! 

MOVE DURING THE WEEK

Consider moving throughout the week instead of on the weekend. Businesses will be slower, more people will be at work, and traffic will not be as heavy. Moving company rates are also higher on the weekends than during the week! 

PROTECT YOUR BELONGINGS

Make sure you have all the proper moving and packing supplies for all your items. Using bubble wrap and furniture covers will protect your belongings from scratches and rips! 

TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS

Double check to make sure you have all your travel arrangements ready, such as hotel reservations and a packed suitcase with enough clothes and toiletries to last until you get to your new home!

 

We hope this moving checklist is a valuable resource for your upcoming move! Remember, Easy Stop Storage offers affordable moving and packing supplies, and spacious storage units to use between moves! Click here to find a location near you!
