Moving in the Summer – What to Expect

Moving this Summer?

Summer is the most popular season for moving, and for good reason. With school out and the weather generally cooperative, it seems like the perfect time to relocate. However, moving in the summer comes with its own set of challenges and considerations. Here’s what you can expect and how Lile Relocation Services can help make your summer move smooth and stress-free.

Limited Availability

Summer is peak moving season, which means movers and moving companies are in high demand. It’s crucial to book your moving services as early as possible to ensure you get your preferred moving date. At Lile Relocation Services, we recommend booking at least two months in advance during the summer. Early planning ensures you can secure the best-moving slots and have ample time to organize your move.

Pro Tip: Book as Early as Possible: Secure your moving date by booking at least two to three months in advance. If you have flexibility, consider moving mid-week or mid-month when demand is lower and prices may be more favorable.

Hot Weather: 

Moving during the summer means dealing with hot temperatures. Ensure you and your family stay hydrated and take breaks to avoid heat exhaustion. Pack a cooler with water, snacks, and cooling towels to keep everyone comfortable. Additionally, schedule your move for early morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday heat. 

Pro Tip: Prepare a Survival Kit: Assemble a survival kit with water bottles, electrolyte drinks, sunscreen, hats, and cooling towels. Keeping a portable fan or misting bottle on hand can also help you stay cool while on the move.

Increased Traffic and Delays: 

Summer months often see increased traffic due to vacations and road construction projects. Plan your route carefully and allow extra travel time to accommodate potential delays. Lile Relocation Services’ experienced drivers are familiar with common summer traffic patterns and can help plan the most efficient route for your move.

Pro Tip: Use Traffic Apps: Use traffic apps like Google Maps or Waze to get real-time traffic updates and avoid congested routes. Leaving early in the morning or later in the evening can also help you bypass the worst traffic.

Temperature-Sensitive Belongings:

High temperatures can affect sensitive items such as electronics, artwork, and certain furniture. Use climate-controlled storage or transport for these belongings to prevent damage. Our team at Lile Relocation Services is trained to handle delicate items with care, ensuring they arrive safely at your new home.

Pro Tip: Pack Smart: For temperature-sensitive items, use insulated packing materials and clearly label these boxes so they receive special attention. For electronics, consider packing them in their original boxes if available for added protection.
