Okay, there’s no denying that the weather over the past month has been hot! It’s been a scorcher! Every time we are moving in and around the area, we like to remind ourselves that “hey, at least we don’t live in Phoenix.” Shew! 120 degree weather throws us into heat exhaustion just looking at it on television. Help beat the heat this summer with Capital Moving & Storage. If you are looking to make a move, definitely keep these 4 tips in mind and keep yourself cool.
The Early Bird Gets the Worm (and Avoids Heat Exhaustion)
There is nothing worse than lifting your old grandma’s piano during the hottest part of the day! If you are moving anything during the summer, do it early! If you take a nice little peak at any hourly weather forecast, it will likely show you that mornings are astronomically cooler than the heat of the day and even sometimes cooler than the evenings. Getting up as early as possible and taking advantage of those cooler temps is a must when moving during the summer.
Work Hard, Play Hard
Nothing says, “Hey we’re home” like a trip to the Emergency Department for heat exhaustion. Listen, know your limits. If you are starting to hurt or feel fatigued, take a break! Don’t work so hard that you can’t reap the benefits of your move later. Take a breather, cool off, and rehydrate yourself. Breaks are a great way to re-energize yourself and keep yourself in it for the long run!
Don’t Dress To Impress
Have you ever really seen someone look dressed to impress when they move? Absolutely not. If you are moving during the summer, expect some perspiration! Don’t wear those tight pants and certainly don’t wear dark clothes. Lighter clothes deflect sunlight rather than absorb it. It’s okay to get sweaty – don’t let fashion cramp your style…or legs.
