Plan Around Traffic

Traffic heats up in the summer, and the more you can avoid a bad traffic jam, the less likely you are to experience damage. Take a look at the calendar and avoid any major holidays or even weekends if possible.

Get Up Early

You'll want to get started before the summer sun takes full effect. By beginning your moving process before it's too unbearably hot, you'll be more likely to conserve energy and maintain your focus throughout the day. 

Protect Heat-Sensitive Belongings

There are a lot of personal belongings that don't handle the heat very well. Especially in a moving truck where it will be much hotter, you'll want to make sure items like the following are well protected:

  • Electronics
  • DVDs, CDs, and Vinyl
  • Candles
  • Plants
  • Accessories

Be Watching the Weather

As we know, in the summer, intense showers and storms can be more likely. Take a look at the forecast leading up to your anticipated moving date. Be sure to choose a date on which the weather appears to be clear and manageable.
