There’s no question that summertime in Iowa is one of the most popular times to move – it’s also the hottest time.
It is estimated that 70 percent of all moves take place between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend, which means peak moving season is just around the corner for those of us here in Cedar Rapids and Marion, Iowa.
The sweltering summer months present many challenges to homeowners who go it alone including higher moving costs and hot, humid weather. They’ll also be lifting your heavy boxes and furniture under the blaze of the summer sun.
One of the best ways you can avoid the hassle, and frankly hard work, that comes with moving is by working with a residential moving company.
Here are four reasons working with a residential mover is better in the summer.
1. Avoid damage
Moving doesn’t always go as smoothly as you plan. When curveballs are tossed your way, some of your belongings may end up in your vehicle or rental truck for too long. The thick Iowa humidity can quickly damage your valuable items including antique furniture, art, vinyl albums, books, and more.
If you hire a professional residential mover, your items will be handled quickly and efficiently, which means you can avoid headaches and potential property loss.
2. It goes faster
Professional movers know a thing or two about getting the job done in the most efficient way possible. They’re not attached to your items but they know how to handle them with respect. When the moving team shows up on the scene you know it’s “go time.” They’ll take care of moving your items from point A to B so you can get to the unpacking part.
Professional movers will also stick to a schedule so you don’t have to worry about getting off track on moving day.
3. You don’t do the heavy lifting
If the thought of lifting and maneuvering your heavy couch from the back of the moving truck into your home doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, you should consider working with a professional residential mover. The moving team will handle everything from packing your items to placing them on the truck and bringing them into your new home.
If you did the packing, you movers can place your items in the correct rooms so you don’t have to go searching for them later. This makes the entire moving process more streamlined and less stressful.
4. Skip the stress
The moving process can be stressful even in the heat of summer, but you can keep your cool when you work with a residential mover. Whether your new space is located across town or across the country, you can rest easy knowing you have an experienced team of movers and packers handling your belongings.
