How To Beat The Heat When Packing Up Your NYC Office For A Summer Move

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.


Stay Hydrated

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.


Hiring A Team

Let a team of professionals, trained in efficiency and prepared to beat the heat, do the bulk of the work for you. If you’re considering an office move in the upcoming summer months, call Simply Moving today for an estimate, and to discuss the ways we move safely and quickly during the hottest months of the year.

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
