Common Colorado Moving Mistakes to Avoid This Summer

Summer is one of the most popular times to move, and with good reason. The pleasant weather does packing and unpacking far easier than wet spring and winter conditions. However, the heat of the summer places a few unique challenges on residents looking to settle into a new home, and your local movers in Denver want to help. Here are a few of the most common summer moving mistakes people make and what you need to do to avoid making them yourself.

Getting Dehydrated

Even when you’re packing up in an air-conditioned home, it’s easy to get dehydrated. Colorado’s dry climate and high altitude mean the human body needs more water more frequently. Keep a water bottle handy anytime you’re working on getting ready for the move, and make sure to drink it. Ideally, you’ll consume at least a half gallon of water each day. Keep in mind that during times of physical activity, you’ll want to drink more than that.

Starting Late In The Day

Summer may mean more daylight, but it also means more heat. If you wait until the late afternoon to start moving boxes around the house, you’ll be doing so during the hottest part of the day. Not only does this increase your risk of dehydration, but it also takes a toll on your endurance. You’ll need to take more frequent breaks to compensate for the heat and keep your body temperature where it’s supposed to be. Instead of waiting until the sun is high in the sky, start moving and cleaning earlier in the day.

Packing the Booze

Nothing says summer like a barbecue in the backyard, and nothing completes a barbecue like a delicious cocktail or ice-cold beer. While it may be tempting to pack up your bar and let the movers carry the heavy bottles for you, don’t. Most moving companies cannot transport alcohol, even if you’re only moving down the street. Make arrangements to transport your alcoholic beverages yourself or throw a final pre-moving day party to use up your collection.

Leaving Your Pup In The Car

During the summer, the interior of your car can go from a cool and comfortable 60 degrees to well over 100 in a matter of minutes. This makes it incredibly dangerous for your pets. Please make arrangements for your animals to stay at a boarding facility for a few days while you move to keep them safe. If you need to keep them with you, make sure they’re in a shaded area with access to plenty of water and air circulation. Never leave your pets in a car unattended, even with the windows cracked.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
