Summer is one of the most, if not the most, popular time of the year to move. However, it can also be a dangerous time of the year to move because of the heat that comes with summer. The vast physical exertion that comes with moving can have damaging repercussions if you’re not careful in the heat. At Hedberg Moving Solutions, we’ve been in this business for years and know how to keep our employees and customers safe in the strong Minnesota heat. Our packing professionals are the best in the business and will make sure you have everything you need to have a quick, efficient, and safe move. Here, we’ll discuss these tips, so you can have a stress-free move.
Move at the Cooler Times of the Day
To beat the summer heat, it is best to plan your move according to the weather of your moving day. While you have to schedule your moving services ahead of time to ensure there is a group of packing professionals available for you, you still can anticipate how the weather will be and schedule accordingly. In the summer, though the heat is usually fierce at all times of the day, it is typically cooler early in the morning or later in the afternoon and evening. The hottest hours of the day are typically between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., so if you can, try to schedule your move before or after these times. At Hedberg Moving Solutions, we do our best to accommodate your schedule, so your move goes smoothly. Additionally, you’ll have a lot of work to do on moving day, and your body will stay better rested and refreshed, which will help you feel good and remain stress-free during your move.
Have Plenty of Water and Food
As you know, staying hydrated during the day is critical to feeling healthy during your move. If you are moving in the summertime, the chances are that it’s going to be hot and uncomfortable during your move. It’s important to plan ahead and make sure you have enough water to keep you hydrated as you exert energy and food that will give you energy and keep you feeling good.

Make Sure You Move Certain Possessions First
Some of your possessions won’t withstand the heat for very long or will get damaged from heat exposure, such as food and other perishable or fragile items. It’s important to pack and plan accordingly, so the items that need to be moved first are. You don’t want your food spoiling before you get to your new home because you’ll have to go out and buy more, which is a waste. Additionally, some of your most prized possessions, like plants or fragile items, may need to be kept in a specific climate to stay healthy. Make sure you prioritize your possessions, so your move goes as smoothly as possible.
Make Sure Your New Home Has Utilities Set Up
Like we talked about above, some of your possessions may be more susceptible to the heat than others. For this reason, you need to plan ahead and have your utilities set up in your new home to keep your food fresh and your possessions in good condition. To do this, all you have to do is contact your utility company and have them start services the day you plan to move. Additionally, you’ll want to keep your utilities on at your old residence long enough to make sure everything stays in good condition until you have it all moved.

Know Yourself and How You Function in the Heat
More importantly than anything, you need to have a complete understanding of how you function in the heat. Each person reacts to long heat exposure in different ways, so it is important to know your body and how it reacts to heat. By staying on top of fluids and food, you can ensure you stay healthy and feel good during your move. Your health is nothing to put at risk, so being mindful of your body before, during, and after your move. If you’re not feeling well, make sure to rest and take care of yourself. It won’t do anyone any good if you’re not at your best during your move.
