Preparing for a Summer Move
With summer just around the corner (yeeha), it’s a great time for all the family for a number of reasons; kids are off school and can enjoy the holidays, the sun makes an appearance, and the allure of BBQs and summer holidays are an exciting prospect. However, summer time is also a great time to move home, and is very popular, so that is why we at Pers Removals have put together top tips for moving during the summer.
Don’t Let People Get in the Way
Moving in summer is good, but when the kids are off school, and you’re trying to pack your belongings, it can become difficult and people can get in the way. This can become dangerous as moving is stressful and a lot of furniture and boxes are being moved which could result in an accident. To avoid this, you can provide each member of the household (and some friends if you ask nicely!) specific tasks to keep them busy. Instead, you may want to ensure that everyone is out of the house so that you can be left to crack on with the hard work in peace and quiet.
Having a busy household can also set you back as you may not be as focused as you’d like. It’s really important to keep on top of tasks and making a handy checklist can help you do this.
Check out the Weather in Advance
If you’re lucky, the summer months can be very hot in some places, so it’s important to keep an eye on the temperature. If it gets too hot, you don’t want to suffer from exhaustion, sunburn or sunstroke. Moving in summer can be stressful enough, without the added inconvenience of falling ill due to the weather. In some places, you may even experience storms which can be even more dangerous. Therefore, ensure you are prepared for all eventualities.

What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
