3 Tips for a Smoother Summer Moving Experience

Long Distance Moving

Summer is the perfect time to move. That’s why those of us in the moving and storage business call it the peak season! Unfortunately, movers often mistakenly assume that because it’s the best season to plan a move, they are fewer challenges. This isn’t true! The challenges are just different.

At NOR-CAL Moving Services, it’s our job to make moving as easy as possible. Here are a few tips straight from our long distance moving company on how to make your summer moving experience a pleasant one.


One of the best reasons to move in the summer is because of the weather, but that doesn’t mean the weather is perfect. If you move in the middle of the day, it can be extremely uncomfortable!

Because it can be so hot during the early afternoon, plan to move early in the morning or in the evening. That’s when the sun is low in the sky and the temperature is milder. It will make moving boxes and furniture more comfortable, but it will also reduce the risks of dehydration.


Because the summer is such a popular time to move, you won’t be the only one packing your boxes. If you want things to be as stress-free as possible, you need to plan your move during the week.

If you’re moving on your own, moving during the week is a good idea because there is less traffic. If you’re planning on hiring a professional mover, like NOR-CAL Moving Services, you’ll be more likely to move on your time if you avoid the busy weekends.


Because the summer is such a popular time to move, it’s extremely important to hire a mover as soon as you can. The quicker you hire a mover, the more likely you will be to pick the days and times that work best for you.
