Birmingham, Alabama gets hot in the summer, which makes moving uncomfortable! The professional movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage in Birmingham have created this guide of moving day essentials to help you beat the heat this summer. Follow along closely, to avoid being uncomfortable in the high temperatures this summer.
Since you’re going to be moving outside in the heat, you want to first start by packing very light t-shirts in your moving day essentials bag. Your essentials bag is going to be everything you’re going to need for moving day, along with the first few nights in your new home. You’ll want to be in lightweight, light-colored clothing while you are outside in the heat all day.
A best kept secret from your local movers is to keep a cold, wet towel with you always. If you put it on the back of your neck, it feels great, lowers your body temperature and helps keep you cool while you are outside in the heat this summer. Wearing sunscreen is another way to help your skin’s ability to shed excess heat.
Lastly, it’s important that you have water readily available at all times! If you are hiring professional movers, it’s very courteous to have cold beverages available for them, and if you would do this for them, you should do it for yourself as well. It’s very easy to get dehydrated when you are doing heavy lifting in the heat, so to avoid any dehydration, be well prepared!
