Make a PlanPlanning ahead is often the key to a successful move. Do you have any specialized items that require specific attention? Will you need additional storage or other services? Answering these questions and thinking of what needs to happen before moving day can make your move much less stressful.

Check the WeatherIn San Clemente you can guarantee that the weather will most likely be hot, but planning ahead and checking the weather before moving days rolls around makes it easier to be better prepared for any variables.

Have Water and Shade AvailableFor both your workers and your family, it’s essential to have water available throughout moving day. Cold water is not just refreshing, but keeps the body hydrated and cooler. Having a space out of the direct sun can not only keep body temperatures down, but also reduce the risk of a sunburn. Plan ahead to ensure everyone remains both hydrated and cool.
