It’s more expensive to move in the summer than any other season of the year, due to its high demand.
If you live in Texas or even visited the Big T during the summer you may had experience the wonderful loving heat. The good thing about moving in the summer is that you do not have deal with inclement weather. It will either be a drought or rain that can slow down your move. But at least you do not have to worry about ice or snow on the streets. Make sure you and your movers stay hydrated before, during and after your move. Carrying heavy boxes/furniture in the heat can put a strain on your body, so if you need to take break please do.
While moving make sure your belongings do not get damaged due to the heat. Try not to have your things sit outside for too long or sitting in the truck. Some things might fade, melt or soften. So any heat sensitive items you might own make sure you either deliver them first where they can still cool and not damaged.
