Denver Movers Share Tips on What to Wear For Moving Day

You’ve got everything packed up, your Colorado moving company arrives in the morning to load the truck, and you’re ready to get settled into your new home. All that’s left is planning out what to wear while driving and unpacking boxes at the new place. Believe it or not, the clothes you choose to wear can make all the difference in how comfortable a moving day is. Here are a few things to keep in mind when picking your moving day wardrobe.

Stick to Sneakers

Though sandals may be the footwear of choice on warm summer days, they’re not ideal for moving days. You’ll want protection for your toes and decent support to help you lift heavy boxes without straining your muscles. Pick a pair of your old and beat-up tennis shoes or hiking boots and plan to wear them all day. This way, you’ll be sure-footed and reduce your risk of injury while you get settled in. If you don’t have sneakers, wear a pair of closed-toe shoes. Dress shoes will work in a pinch, but take care on wet or slippery floors.

Layer Up

Cardboard boxes have some pretty sharp edges that can take a toll on your forearms. While you’re moving and carrying boxes, wearing long sleeves can help eliminate skin irritation and scratches on your arms; instead of picking a long sleeve t-shirt and preparing yourself to stay warm all day, layer up. Wear a light cotton jacket or t-shirt over a short sleeve shirt. This way, you can remove the long sleeves when you’re done carrying boxes and stay cool while you unpack.

Don’t Skimp on Sun Protection.

Even if you’ve hired a professional moving team to transport your belongings, you’ll still be wandering in and out of the new house throughout the day. In Colorado, the relatively high altitude and minimal atmosphere can lead to sunburn after only a short time in the sun. While you’re getting ready for a moving day, take the time to put on plenty of sunblocks. If you know it’s going to be particularly warm or think you’ll be sweating heavily during the move, look for a waterproof or sweat-proof sunblock. This way, you’ll have to reapply less frequently can focus on getting settled in rather than nursing tender and sun-damaged skin.

Choose Items You’re Okay Parting With

When moving day comes along, your clothes will likely get dirty or torn throughout the day. Rather than wearing your favorite shirt or pants and risking damaging them beyond repair, pick clothes you’re okay getting rid of. Those jeans that turned pink in the wash or that shirt that got bleached by accident are ideal. Once you’re done, you can throw them out or toss them in the wash without feeling guilty about how beaten up they got during the move.

Moving can be tough, but you don’t have to handle the transition on your own. Our experienced team is ready to help you with your upcoming move to Eden’s Moving and Storage services. Whether you hate packing or need a bit of help moving larger items to your new house, we’re here and ready to get the job done right. Contact us today for a free moving estimate.

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.
