Safety Tips for Home Moving

So, you’ve made the decision to move with the help of a professional moving company? That is definitely a great and safe way to move! For those without experience, moving has the potential to be a dangerous process. Following the safety tips below and the expertise of your movers would allow your move to go seamlessly. After all, you should still be able to stand after you’ve moved in to your new home!
General Tips and Tricks
Below are some safety tips you should consider when moving:
  • Ensure that weather is a priority – on hot summer days it can be beneficial to complete all tasks that involve being outside during morning or evening hours. This will guarantee that you are not outside during the hottest periods of the day. Conversely, if it is raining, you want to have towels on hand in order to prevent slips and falls.
  • Keep pets and children busy to avoid the possibility of them accidentally getting injured.
  • Wear clothes that are comfortable. Avoid wearing any loose clothing that could get stuck on boxes and put you at risk of injury.
  • Most importantly, stay hydrated by always keeping a water bottle on hand!
Heavy Lifting
Heavy lifting is unavoidable, so you should ensure that you have a plan in place to make it a safer process. Avoid doing more lifting than is absolutely necessary. For starters, plan out where everything should be placed on the truck before you begin. Proper organization will allow you to avoid the stress of reorganizing the truck multiple times to get all of your belongings to fit. Next, when you actually begin lifting, make sure that you maintain proper spine alignment throughout the process. Bend at your knees and avoid twisting when picking up heavy items. Finally, know when to ask for help when you need it! Nothing should feel like a competition, knowing your limits and capabilities are important and you should always listen to your body first. Sharing the weight with others would ensure that your body is not pushed past its limitations.
