Book your removalist early
The summer months are the peak time for people to move house for a number of reasons including the warmer weather being a more attractive time to buy and sell property, people taking advantage of being on summer holidays and families capitalising on the kids being on school holidays. Whatever the reason, the bottom line is that you need to book early when it comes to your removalists. As soon as you know you need to move, call up and make your booking so you’re not stuck.
Think about your pets
If it looks like you’ll be moving on a hot day and you have pets around, it might be a good idea to see if you can get someone to look after them on moving day. Moving house can be stressful enough for pets without the added factor of excessive heat so relocating them to a neutral environment until the chaos subsides might be a good idea. If you don’t have anyone to look after them, put them in a quiet room in the house and keep it as cool as possible until you’re ready to move them across to the new place.
If you’ve ever moved house before, you’ll know how intense the process can be physically and this can have a serious impact on your health in the hot weather. Keep a steady supply of water available and drink it throughout the day. If you find the heat getting the better of you, don’t try to push through – take a seat in the shade and take a few moments to rehydrate before you get going again.
Cool down both houses
When you’re busy moving, you may not even notice how hot the inside of both houses are but it can take its toll. Be prepared by cranking the air conditioning and fans so you have a cool retreat on both ends. If there’s a bit of a breeze happening, you can also open up all the windows and doors to get some fresh air going through to cool things down.
