If you will be moving in the summer, then there are additional precautions you will want to take when preparing for your move. The heat of the summer will most likely affect when and at what time you will need to move. Below are a couple of things to take into consideration.
When should I start looking for movers?
Summer is a popular time for moving. If you want to schedule Dallas movers to help you with your move, then you will have to start looking plenty of time in advance. Begin by doing a simple Google search to see what Dallas moving companies are available in your area. From this search, compile a list of Dallas movers that you are interested in based on their reviews. Once you have a selection of about 4-5 Dallas moving services providers, your next step is to start calling and asking for moving quotes. Each Dallas moving company will have different prices and fees depending on the services you require. As you call every Dallas mover on your list make sure you take detailed notes on their prices and availability so that you do not forget.
When should I schedule movers?
Summer in the south can be very hot especially at noon when the sun is at its highest. For this reason, many Dallas moving companies may only schedule moves early in the morning or late in the afternoon. If this is the case, then you will want to plan accordingly to make sure that your elevators are reserved whenever the Dallas movers need them. Also, you will need to make sure that you obtain the keys to your new apartment before your scheduled move. Those that do not plan ahead of time may find their movers locked out of the apartment if the leasing office is closed is not yet open or already closed for the day.
What if my items are going into storage?
For people who will be moving their items into storage, the one recommendation that all Dallas movers will make is that you choose climate control. Humidity and excessive heat will slowly begin to rot the wood of your furniture. Electronics will also be damaged by the heat because the constant heating and cooling of a device’s battery throughout the day will destroy its ability to hold a charge. Even if you pack all of your items into moving boxes, the humidity in the storage unit will cause the cardboard to become soggy. When you finally take your boxes out of storage, the cardboard will be moldy and will fall apart as soon as you touch it. Even though the prices for a climate control unit are slightly more expensive, it is very much worth it in the end.
