Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Here is a fun tidbid if you're moving this summer--nearly 80% of moves in the US happen in July and August. The kids are out of school, as well as for a large number of families, it is simply better to pack up and go while school's out. And although it is hot, you have a much better possibility of the weather being a non-issue over the summer months. You'll be able to remain cool, both mentally and physically, by sticking to these simple strategies for a summer season move to Tulsa.


Arrange Your Mover Promptly

That 80% number? Every one of them require moving trucks, and a lot of them require at the very least a rudimentary crew. It's never too soon to commence considering the logistics of your move--full service moving company in Tulsa, DIY, or a place in between? Go on and begin calling professional moving companies regarding schedules and also estimates and make a decision as quickly as possible to make certain you're on their schedule.

In the event you delay too long to hire a professional moving company--one which is certified with the NTSB, holds full insurance on gear as well as staff, and provides a full slate of services--you will wind up using a lower-end company which won't have the expert designations and experience to give good results.

Arrange Your Friends Promptly, as well

Your buddies may ask if they can supply you with a hand with your packing. You'll want to take them up on the offer--it will be an excellent hangout time, and if you are taking apart an entertainment system or a playset, numerous hands can be a necessity. Take into account that it's summer for everyone and get on their calendars several weeks out. This is particularly crucial in case your move is a DIY, work out your dates to pack and load early on.

Transfer Sensitive Belongings in Your Vehicle

Professional moving companies in Tulsa will wrap and safeguard vulnerable and valuable belongings in order that they will transfer safely to your new residence. They understand the most suitable packing material for a specific treasure and they are masters in filling and balancing boxes. Consequently, there's no need to worry about artwork, crystal, or china not making the journey.

Electronics, on the other hand, tend to be an entirely different monster. The parts in televisions, computer systems, audio speakers, gaming systems, and so forth are extremely vulnerable to temperature and humidity and need to travel with you, inside an air-conditioned automobile. Your mover company will help you package your equipment to make sure they are protected against bruises and bumps, but most may suggest you put them inside your car or truck for transport.

Prescription medications should additionally travel along with you. Place the meds you need while in transit in pill keepers and toss the rest of it inside a baggie and set it in a bag you'll keep in the air-conditioned car.

Arrange an Early Day

Make an effort to plan the challenging work early in the morning. The humidity levels vary depending on what part of the country you're in, but the most severe heat generally hits around 3 pm. If you're able to have the moving vans loaded around 3 and then everyone can get more comfortable in an AC equipped vehicle. In case your move is a DIY, obtain the moving truck in the afternoon and load as much as you possibly can before it gets too dark, and then finish up the subsequent morning.

It's Like a Holiday to the Seaside. Almost.

Pack a bag with sunscreen, hats, pest spray, extra t-shirts, along with shades to safeguard you against the burning rays of the summer sun. Reapply sun block as advised, and swap t-shirts when they're saturated and yucky.

Stay hydrated. After that hydrate more. Buy cases of water bottles and put them in a cooler where everybody has access and provide them to the moving company team. They will usually provide their own, yet on a very hot day more will almost always be encouraged. Hang onto the beer for when you are unpacked and hydrated--alcohol, physical exercise, along with a sizzling day can be a recipe for a heat stroke.

Board Your Domestic Pets

Domestic pets need relief from high heat as well as stress, therefore board them for moving day so they are more comfortable. Get them on the road out; remember to allow room inside the car for Fido.
