Tips for Moving During the Summer
Gasperson Moving & Storage in Asheville, NC Shares Their Advice
Summer is here, school’s out, and for many American families, it’s time to move. While the other three seasons have their own beauty, summer has long been the most popular time to move. The cold short days of winter have given way to the fresh flowers and singing birds of spring. Spring has finally come to an end and as the movers and packers at Gasperson Moving & Storage, the busy season has arrived.
Summer is “Busy Season”
Being the busiest time of year for moving companies like Gasperson Moving & Storage also has another meaning. One that says if you don’t book your moving date at least six to eight weeks in advance, you probably aren’t going to get the date you want. Book early to make sure we have a team ready to help move your family and household on the right day.
Hire Professional Movers
Summers in Asheville, NC are packed with dozens of things to do and places to go, all of which must be packed into just a few short months. The best way to make sure you and your family get to take advantage of all there is to do, is let our team provide you with a full-service move. What is this, you ask? A full-service means allowing us to provide you with a team of highly experienced packers to get everything ready to go. This means more time for you and your family to do things like check out Sliding Rock Natural Waterslide in the heart of Pisgah National Forest. Or perhaps you could spend time at Splasheville in Pack Square Park. Things you wouldn’t have time to do if you had to do all the packing.
Should you decide that you would like to do the packing yourself, the best way to get it done without completely tiring yourself out, is to start early and pack a few boxes each day. Done right, by the time our moving truck and team arrive, you should have everything packed. Be sure you pack your breakables very carefully. If you don’t the movers are not responsible for any damage. If this doesn’t sound good, maybe you should consider our partial pack option. We can provide you with professional packers who know how to properly pack breakable and valuable items to ensure they have a safe journey.
Stay Cool & Stay Hydrated
Summers in Asheville, NC can reach the mid to upper 80s with humidity levels to match. Whether you are handling the packing yourself or allow us to do the packing for you, be sure to turn the air conditioning on. Packing is hard, hot work and keeping your house cool will make the job much easier. Be sure you have plenty of ice-cold water on hand for anyone involved in packing (including the pros). You should also let your packers know if anything in your belongings is heat sensitive, this way they can be handled appropriately.
