Summertime means moving time! If you're dreading the heat and humidity, don't worry. The professional residential movers at Coleman Hawaii Movers have got you covered. In this blog post, we've got some tips to help you stay cool during your warm weather move so that the heat doesn’t get to you and the movers that are helping you. 

Schedule Your Move During Cooler Times

First, try to schedule your move for the morning or evening when it's a little cooler outside. Dealing with cooler weather during your move will make it a bit more bearable. If you schedule your move right in the middle of the afternoon, chances are that you will be moving during the highest temperature of the day, which can be quickly draining during your move. 

Have Some Drinks and Snacks On Hand

Make sure you have plenty of bottled water and snacks on hand. You and the movers who are helping you will likely be moving around a lot during the warm or hot day. You will quickly begin sweating which means you have to replenish your fluids with hydrating beverages and your energy with snacks.

Take Frequent Breaks & Stay Cool 

Be sure to take frequent breaks in a cool area during your move. If you push yourself for too long or overexert yourself, you may end up getting exhausted much faster, which can lead to a slow down for your move. Retreat to a cool area and rest for a couple minutes while replenishing your energy with drinks and snacks. In addition to breaks, try to keep areas around your home cool with fans and other forms of portable air conditioning. This can make the moving experience better for you and the movers.

Dress Correctly

Imagine moving around boxes and loading them into your vehicle dressed in sweats on a hot day. Sounds terrible right? Wearing the right clothing during your moving day will help make the move a bit more bearable and less draining. Clothing you should wear include:

  • Gloves
  • Sports Apparel
  • Closed Toed Shoes
  • Lightweight Clothing

Make Sure Your Vehicle Is Ready

One of the most important things for your move is making sure your vehicle is ready for the drive. During the peak temperatures of the summer months, the heat can be very draining and dangerous. Be sure to get your vehicle inspected and make sure any cooling systems are ready to go. If you’d rather not deal with the drive, have our long distance movers help you out!
