1. The Early Bird Catches the Worm Avoid The Heat

We all know how the midday sun can be a real scorcher. So, why not beat the heat and start your move early in the morning? You’ll not only dodge the worst of the sun but also have more daylight hours to get things done. Plus, there’s nothing quite like the fresh, crisp air of a Solihull morning to get you energised for the day! And let’s not forget, the early morning roads are less busy, so your moving van can zip through the streets of Solihull with ease.

2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Moving house is a bit like running a marathon – it’s a test of endurance. And just like any athlete, you need to stay hydrated. So, make sure you’ve got plenty of water on hand. And don’t forget to take regular water breaks. Remember, it’s not a race – pace yourself and listen to your body. Consider having some ice lollies in the freezer too. They’re a great way to cool down and keep the kids (and adults!) happy.

3. Dress for Successbreathable clothes beat the heat

When it comes to moving in hot weather, your outfit can make a world of difference. Opt for light, breathable clothing to keep you cool. And don’t forget your sun cream and a hat – we all love a bit of sun, but no one wants a lobster-red sunburn! Sunglasses are also a good shout – you’ll be protecting your eyes and looking stylish at the same time.

4. Let the Pros Handle It

Here at Ryans Removals, we’re no strangers to the summer heat. Our team is fully trained and ready to help you with all your moving needs. From choosing the right size self-storage unit to picking out the best packaging materials, we’ve got you covered. Plus, our storage facilities are top-notch – secure, clean, and dry, with round-the-clock video surveillance. And the best part? You can upgrade or downgrade your storage size whenever you need to. Now, how’s that for flexibility?

5. Plan, Plan, Plan!

They say failing to plan is planning to fail, and we couldn’t agree more. Organise your belongings, pack non-essential items in advance, and label all your boxes. It might seem like a bit of a faff, but trust us, it’ll make your move a whole lot smoother. And if you need any packing materials, we’ve got a wide range at Ryans.

6. Have a timer? Have a Break!

It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re in the middle of a move. Set a timer to remind yourself to take a break every hour or so. This could be a quick five-minute breather or a longer 15-minute rest, depending on how you’re feeling. Find a Cool Spot: During your break, try to find a cool spot away from the sun. This could be indoors, under a shady tree, or even in your air-conditioned moving van. The goal is to lower your body temperature and give yourself a chance to cool down.

7. Take Care of Your Pets, keep them away from the heat

If you’ve got pets, don’t forget about them! The heat can be tough on them. The heat, the noise, and the general chaos can be particularly tough on pets. So, how can you make the move as smooth as possible for them?

Keep Them Cool: Just like us, pets can struggle in the heat. Make sure they have access to plenty of fresh water throughout the day. If possible, keep them in a cool, shaded area, away from the hustle and bustle of the move. You consider a Pet Sitter: If the move is proving too stressful for your pet, consider arranging for a pet sitter or a trusted friend to look after them for the day. This can keep them safe and calm while you focus on the move. For more information on moving with pets see our blog post here
