Shifting of house during the summer months in the UAE is tough due to the scorching heat and humidity. Temperatures can reach up to 45-50 Degrees Celsius during the day and intense humidity levels cause discomfort. All of these factors make packing chores or travel uncomfortable and difficult.
As experienced home movers in Dubai, Tamam has been relocating families in the heart of the summer. As kids are on summer break, most families choose to move during these 3 months. If you want to make your summer home move a less challenging and stressful experience here are some tips you can follow to make the process easier:
Check the weather forecast
Temperature/humidity levels can ascend or descend on certain days. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and schedule your move on a day that’s not too hot or humid. Also, as intense heat is from 12-4 pm move in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler.
The summer heat can drain your energy levels much faster. So, make sure you stay indoors as much as possible and hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water, juices and smoothies throughout the day.
When packing make sure you label your boxes with the contents and the room they belong to. This will make it easier to unpack and organize your new home faster and save time.
Carry an essentials bag pack
When shifting home in summer you cannot waste your energy running to find things or buying them in the middle of the journey. Pack a bag with all the essentials you need on the move day as well as a few days after such as sunscreen, hats, snacks and refrigerated water/juice bottles. This’ll help you stay comfortable and cool.
Wearing lightweight, breathable cotto will reduce uneasiness and full sleeved clothing will protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. For extra comfort also do wear a hat or scarf and protect your eyes with sunglasses.
Hire a reputable moving company
In UAE, June, July and August are the peak seasons for house shifting. So most reputable moving companies in Abu Dhabi/Dubai are pre-booked. To book movers and packers of your choice, it is better to book them early on. Also asking recommendations from others or checking reviews online will ensure you’re hiring a trustworthy mover.
Book temperature-controlled transport and storage
If you are travelling a long distance, consider booking a temperature-controlled vehicle or storage unit to protect your sensitive belongings such as leather furniture, paintings, artefacts and others from extreme heat and humidity.
By following these tips, certainly your summer home relocation in the UAE can turn as stress-free as possible.
