Moving during the summer can be rough, especially when temperatures are record breaking. Elite Storage aims to be your all-in-one moving resource and provides you with Lafayette CO storage units and moving supplies to help make your move easier. We also want to make sure you’re safe during the big move so we’re providing you with some tips to help you stay cool.
If you know it’s going to be hot out, dress accordingly on moving day. Aim for loose fitting clothing so that you don’t have to deal with tight clothing rubbing against your skin and chafing. We also recommend wearing light colored clothing as opposed to black as this will help keep you cooler in the hot sun.
Moving is hard work and not staying hydrated could lead to dehydration and exhaustion. You’re more likely to get dehydrated when it’s hot out so drink plenty of water as you go. If you have a moving party helping you, it’s a nice gesture to have bottled water on hand.
We understand that moving takes a lot of time and you probably want to finish as soon as possible but there’s no reason to not take breaks. If you don’t allow yourself a break once in a while, you could overexert yourself, especially in the hot sun. Take a break every half hour to an hour to ensure you don’t overdo it.
This might seem obvious but if you can, park the moving truck and other vehicles in the shade. You’ll be spending a lot of time going back and forth between the home and your vehicle so this can make a huge difference in your overall temperature.
Having some cool water and towels on hand will be super helpful when you find yourself getting overheated. Cool down by dipping the towel in water and rubbing it over your face and neck. This will help you feel cool even when the temperature is at it’s highest.
