Moving in the summer is one of the best times to move, with more dependable weather and often easier availability for time off. Sadly, just about anyone who has moved during the colder months knows that. 


However, it's worth mentioning that moving in the summer isn't exactly as easy as it sounds. We're going to elaborate on a few methods that can make your summer move a breeze.

Survey Your Belongings

Get an idea of what kind of furniture and other large items you'll need to get hauled from one place to another. Doing so will make your moving experience run much more smoothly and keep your moving experience organized so that you don't leave behind anything you want in your new home.

Take Care of Your Items

Remember that you'll be putting your personal property in a hot moving truck. Items that can be damaged by heat might have to be transported by you or packed with extreme care. 


Candles, vinyl records, and sensitive electronics are some of the many things that require extra care because they can be warped or ruined by heat. It may be in your best interest to transport these items yourself to guarantee A/C while moving. 

Move On The Least Busy Days

Moving on the least busy days is incredibly important for your move. Weekends, the month's beginning, and the month's end can be the most busy times in which people plan on moving. 


Memorial Day weekend and the weekend of July 4th are also days that can be especially busy due to people and their moving plans. 


The best time to move is usually during the middle of the week or the middle of the month since people are generally at work during these times.

Think Ahead of the Heat

Try to plan a move in the morning if possible. It's usually cooler in the morning, so suffering from extreme heat is less likely. In addition to this, try to remain hydrated throughout the move and wear light clothing. Heat stroke is a real danger during a summer move, so be careful.

Plan Ahead

Understand that moving during the summer is incredibly popular. Many people wait for months and plan their move very far in advance before they begin filling boxes with their items. 


Make your moving reservations as soon as you get a move-in/move-out date.

How Does Early Planning Benefit You? 

Taking the time to plan your move comes with multiple perks, and our top three favorites include:

Makes the Process Easier

Let's face it: moving is stressful, especially if you wait till the last minute. Taking the time to plan sooner than later means you're going to have enough time to get organized and give you an opportunity to go through your things and choose what you really want to keep and what may not be as important so you can get rid of extra items you no longer need.

Saves You Money

Early planning can also get you better rates if you work with a moving company. The further in advance you book, the more likely you'll be able to get a discount or even a promotion to save you a few bucks.

Better Selection of Movers

The truth is not all companies are created equally, and you need a company that always provides professional moving services. Booking in advance means you get a better chance of choosing from the top companies in the area and that they will have the right equipment you need for your move.
