Regardless of the time of year, moving is always a hectic and stressful process. However, moving in summer can bring about its own set of challenges. The summer is always a busy time for moving, as a lot of colleges students are moving before the new semester, and many peoples’ leases end during this time.
Moreover, moving amidst the hottest temperatures of the year can be physically difficult. Make sure you are prepared for everything a summer move may bring by preparing well and reading on.
Enjoy Your Summer
Though your move might take place during or at the end of the summer, don’t let stressing about it take over the most carefree months of the year. Make sure to still enjoy yourself and do the outdoor activities with your friends that you want to. Make a schedule to ensure that your moving checklist or to-dos are taken care of in a low-stress and orderly manner while you enjoy yourself.
Especially if you’re moving long-distance, contacting a professional moving service ahead of time is a great way to ensure your move is taken care of in an orderly and professional manner during peak moving season. Avoid delays or last minute panics by keeping your essential items with you and not packed away in a moving van.
Prepare for Weather
If you’re moving in the summer, you can assume that it’s going to be hot. Make sure everything you pack can withstand the heat inside of a moving truck while being transported (especially for long distance moves). Anything sensitive to heat should be kept somewhere air-conditioned during the duration of the move.
Make sure to take care of yourself and whoever is aiding you in your move this summer – stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, and wear sunscreen. Don’t overdo or rush things.

My move went very well. All of the people working for you were great. That includes the office staff, the movers in Downers Grove and the movers in Goodyear. The drivers and movers on both ends worked diligently, carefully and did not waste any time. They were courteous and neat.

Moving 3 times in 2 ½ years is not something Lynn would recommend to anyone. For us, it would have been impossible without the assistance of Chris and his crews at Hollander Moving and Storage. We’ve done home-to-home, home-to-condo and condo-to-condo moves. In each situation, we found Hollander’s staff to…

Hollander Movers were better than excellent. My move from Park Ridge to Des Plaines went without a hitch. We even had to make a stop to pick up items from a storage locker. Nick's crew was very careful and professional and even helped with unpacking and hanging some pictures. If…
