September 6, 2018 at 1:00 pm | Three Items of Clothing Essential for Moving on a Hot Day

One of the easiest ways to make moving a little less stressful is to choose the right outfit for moving day. If you’re getting ready for a move under the heat of the Pennsylvania sun, make sure you wear these three moving essentials on the big day to limit the risk of injury…and lower your stress levels!

  • Comfortable, protective shoes. Protective footwear will provide more than comfort during a move while helping to decrease the risk of injury. Choose fully-enclosed shoes that are comfortable but sturdy; a pair of broken-in running sneakers or tennis shoes is an excellent choice. Make sure the shoes you wear are also inexpensive, as dropping items on your feet is quite common.
  • Breathable fabrics. While summer is coming to an end, the average high September temperature in the Philadelphia area is still a hot 80 degrees — which will feel even hotter when you’re constantly lifting and carrying boxes. It is likely that you’re going to sweat. Choosing well-fitting clothing made from breathable fabrics like cotton or linen can help you stay cool. Contrary to popular belief, dark-colored fabrics also do a better job of absorbing light, making the sun more bearable while you lift boxes and bags into your moving truck.
  • Sunglasses and plenty of SPF. Commercial movers in Bucks County, PA know that spending all day in the sun can make even the shortest move seem like a nightmare. Make sure to reapply sunscreen of at least 30 SPF every two hours and be sure to cover every exposed area on the body — hands, the back of the neck, and the clavicle are three of the most commonly-missed areas. Sunglasses, especially wrap-around sunglasses, will help protect your sensitive eyes from sun damage as well.

Working with one of the many trusted professional moving companies in Bucks County, PA can make even the hottest summer move a cinch. If you’re looking to stay a little cooler during your upcoming residential or commercial move, give Dan the Mover a call today at 215-309-8222 for a free estimate!
