It’s been said that there is nothing worse than moving. Whoever said that, never moved during the summer. The summer in New York City can be hot and humid as heck, and some days, just walking to get an iced coffee can be excruciating after 9am.
NYC movers are skilled at combating crowds, traffic and heat. They’ll help you get through one of the worst things about moving in NYC…the dreaded summer move. Excuse us, the dreaded summer office move.
You’re probably not moving the entire office on your own. You’ll hire professionals to do that part. However, you will be packing up, running around for new supplies and pick out office equipment, and obtaining necessary permits to make the move run smoothly.
Manhattan is the epicenter of New York City. You’ll find everything you need at your fingertips, including office decor. While wandering the city that never sleeps, make sure to stay as hydrated as possible. The humid summer days on the streets of Manhattan can and will suck up your energy and hydration quickly!
Take Plenty of Breaks
Breaks aren’t for your employees only! You’ve earned them too. Make sure to take plenty of them out of the heat, and don’t be afraid to crank that air conditioner up in your current office space!
Your NYC movers aren’t going to pack up the office for you. They’ll move it as quickly and efficiently as possible, but they won’t pack it. Packing up that much stuff is no easy feat. Start a few weeks in advance and go easy on yourself.
Start as Early as Possible
We all know that as the day goes on, it tends to heat up. Cool summer mornings can turn into scorching afternoons pretty quickly. You’ll want to get started as early as possible, especially on moving day.
Organize the move with your old location and new location so you can tell your office movers when they should begin. Each building may have specific times that they allow you to move items in and out, so be sure to coordinate those times. Early mornings will be best to beat that summer heat.
Also, give everyone plenty of water, breaks and personal fans to use while hauling heavy stuff in and out. If you’re there when the movers are, let them know where everything is to keep their day as short as possible.
