Memorial Day is finally here, and Hazelwood Allied would like to take a moment to give thanks to all the brave me and women who laid down their lives for this beautiful country. These brave soldiers paid the ultimate price and this Memorial Day it is important that we remember these men and women. We are so proud of their bravery and dedication.
Another thing Memorial Day reminds us of is that summer is officially here, and with it, the kids are out of school, summer temperatures climb higher and higher, and home buying season is in full swing. According to the US Census Bureau, almost half of all domestic moves happen between the months of June and September, making summer the busiest time of year for moving.
With the hectic months of summer, you may need the help of a professional moving team like Hazelwood Allied. Below are helpful tips for streamlining your summertime move.
Make Your Reservation: Yes, it bears repeating because you may find yourself with a quickly approaching move but with no reservation. Additionally, weekends and the first of the month are the most popular times to move, so be sure to lock in your move date with us as soon as possible.
Stick to the Work Week: If at all possible, try to schedule your move during the workweek. This will ensure a smoother move by staying away from peak moving days. This will also allow you to be more flexible on your moving day, as we have more availability during the week.
Beware of Heat-Sensitive Items: Be sure to box up items such as candles, anything made of wax, aerosol products and electronics in clearly marked boxes. Avoid leaving boxes out in the sun, in a hot garage, or any place that will subject them to long periods of high heat. Better yet, trust the professionals with all your boxing needs, and we’ll make sure nothing gets damaged by the incredible high summer temperatures.
Dress for the Occasion: Remember you’re moving not going on a date night. Stay away from white fabrics. Instead opt for lightweight breathable fabrics. Also, don’t’ forget about sunscreen. You may have a painful surprise waiting for you after a full day of walking around in the sun.
Hydrate, Hyrdate, Hyrdate: Everyone knows to drink lots of water, so why do people still not do it? Seriously, be sure to drink lots of water while working on your move. Many times people get tunnel vision and get wrapped up doing work for the move and forget to take care of themselves.
Or maybe you’d rather just relax in the cool AC while Hazelwood Allied does everything from boxing, loading and then unloading. Leave the heavy lifting to us, while you chill with a cold drink. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Give us a call today and make sure you get the Hazelwood guarantee for your move.
After your all moved into your new home, you might need to find a reputable cleaning company. We recommend Rosie’s Cleaning Service for handling all your cleaning needs. Like Hazelwood, Rosie’s has an A+ rating on BBB.
Did you know that Hazelwood Allied regularly helps seniors move from senior living communities like Casa Dorinda? We’re Senior Move Certified through the CRTS.
Thinking about a commercial move or relocating a business? Hazelwood Allied can take care of that as well.
Don’t take unnecessary risks by hiring a less experienced and professional company. Contact Hazelwood Allied for a free estimate or give us a call at 800.541.5958.
