Summer in Delray Beach is one of the busiest times for local movers. The housing market is bustling during the summer months, and many families find themselves trying to arrange moves. However, summer moves do present certain challenges that shouldn’t be overlooked. Here are some of the things you should know in preparation for a summer relocation.

How to Plan a House Move During the Summer


Hire Movers as Early as Possible

When you have confirmed your house move, it is worth reaching out to movers to confirm dates and start the planning process. As mentioned, summer months can be busy, making it important to hire a moving company with advance notice. You also get the chance to prepare and create a moving plan that simplifies the process.

Start the Move Early in the Day

If possible, an early start will help you avoid the worst of the heat. A typical Florida summer will make packing and lifting a taxing process. But starting the move early ensures much of the work is out of the way before hitting peak temperatures. Additionally, some possessions could be susceptible to damage in high temperatures, requiring careful planning around the weather.

A Supply of Bottled Water Is Essential

A steady supply of water is essential for a move during the summer. It’s important to stay hydrated and prepared for any eventualities. For example, you may turn off your air conditioning before you completely leave your property, or upon arrival at your new home, find that it’s not yet cooled down. Easy access to water will make the move far more pleasant for everyone.

Summer Holidays Can Get Busy

Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day are busy holidays that will make for a challenging move. The best time to move is when roads are clear so you won’t face delays. However, summer holidays are notorious for traffic and disruptions, adding additional time to a move. Talk to your movers to find out the best periods for moving in Delray Beach.

Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen before heading outside. Even with the help of a professional moving company, you may find yourself outside for longer than you anticipated. Carry sunscreen with you as one of those “must-haves.” You may also find this useful for long-distance moves where you are on the road or in transit for a longer duration.

Packing Is Harder Than It Appears

Packing for fast loading and safe moving is a skill that takes time to acquire.
