Summer Moving – Tips From The DMV’s Premier Moving Company

The summer months are a convenient time to move. The climate is sultry, children are on vacation, and most importantly, there’s a multitude of homes on the market. For these reasons, summer is the busiest time of year for a moving company like ours.

Still, moving in the summer can come with some unique challenges and obstacles. Namely, the hot weather can make your move a bit exhausting. That is why it is important to make sure you plan your move properly.

As some of the most experienced movers and packers in the DMV, we feel that we are better positioned than most to offer moving advice.  With that in mind, here are some pointers on how to make your summer move smooth and stress-free.

Plan Your Move Ahead of Time

We know it might seem like we’re repeating ourselves, but it is always immensely important to plan your move far ahead of time. This is especially true during the summer months, which are the busiest time of year for moving companies like ours.  Do your research early, and make sure to look for companies with professional trained movers. Once you’ve decided on the right movers, get in touch with them as soon as possible.

Research The Best Moving Companies

We’ve all heard horror stories about incompetent movers. That is why it is so important to track down the best moving companies possible, so you can enjoy a smooth and seamless moving experience. Whatever you do, do not settle for a moving company that you’re not confident will do an amazing job.

Have conversations with a wide variety of movers.  Work with the moving company that has the best reputation, the best movers, and a track record of satisfied customers.  It’s important to keep in mind that reputable moving companies like ours are in high demand during the summer months, which is why it is so crucial to start your research early.

Pack Your Things ASAP

We know how easy it is to procrastinate. But whatever you do, do not pack your things at the last minute. The earlier you start, the more likely you will be to have everything prepared on schedule without stressing yourself out. If you’re not confident about your ability to pack on time, you can always hire a moving company to pack your things for you.

Beware Of The Most Common Packing Errors

We know packing can be boring and monotonous, but it’s important to stay focused during the packing process. If you’re not focused, you might end up making some common mistakes that slow down your move. Some of those mistakes may include:

  • Playing things by ear–not planning your moving and packing procedures ahead of time.
  • Waiting until the last minute.
  • Not sorting your items properly.
  • Packing items you no longer need instead of donating or throwing them away.
  • Not using the right packing supplies.
  • Leaving empty gaps in your moving boxes. (This is the most insidious mistake on the list!!!)
  • Filling your boxes beyond capacity.

Have Your Children Help With The Moving Process

If you have children, summer is the perfect time for them to help you with the moving process.  Since they’re on vacation, you do not have to feel guilty about distracting them from other time-critical activities.  We have written elsewhere about moving with children.

Avoid Getting Overwhelmed

The earlier you start the moving process, the less work you will have to do on a daily basis. There is absolutely no need to spend all your spare time on the logistics of packing and moving.

Feel free to take some time off any relax. Besides, it is much easier to do high quality work when you’re not rushed. It’s summer, so feel free to go swimming, get some ice cream, or see a movie.  You deserve it.

Try Not To Move On A Busy Day

While summer is the busiest time of the year for moving companies, there are some days of the week that are less popular, and therefore often cheaper. On the other hand, weekends and the beginning and end of the month are packed, which means you may be likely to get a higher rate.

Because there is so much demand for moving help on the busiest days, movers are less likely to negotiate with you on rates. But if you can move on a weekday in the middle of the month, you’re more likely to save some money.

Protect Your Prized Possessions From The Summer Heat

It’s crucial that you remember not to pack certain delicate items in the back of a hot moving truck. Certain items are temperature sensitive and need extra care during transportation.  Some of those items include:

  • Wax Items – Candles are the most obvious example here, but it’s important not to pack anything that can melt in the back of a truck.  Your other possessions can be ruined if those items melt.
  • Musical Instruments– For example, a guitar neck can become severely warped in hot weather.
  • Leather and Suede Furniture – Sometimes delicate fabrics, like high-grade leather and suede, can be damaged in high temperatures.  This will probably not be an issue for items made from synethetic leather or microsuede.
  • Media Devices – Laptops, smartphones, televisions, and other high-end electronics need to be dealt with more carefully.
  • Perishable Food Items
  • Plants

Take extra care to pack all of these items.  For tips on how to do this properly, ask reputable moving companies like ours.

Start Early On Moving Day

Try to arrange your move early in the morning. Because the weather will be relatively cool, you will be able to get more accomplished without getting too exhausted.  

Still, regardless of the temperature outside, it’s important to stay hydrated and wear weather-appropriate clothing. And sunscreen is imperative no matter what time of year it is.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY

Still thinking twice if you'll bet your next move on us? Here are some reviews of our past customers.

I’m an older single women and lived in the same house for 33 years. Over the years I have accumulated so much. I tried downsizing but at my age it was a hard task. I spoke to a gentleman from this company who went over my needs and he tailored a move that fit everything I needed from packing, dumping, storage and my move to a smaller location. The crew showed up on time. The boys were so respectful and polite! They knew exactly what to do to a point that I didn’t even bother them. That’s a lot of help for someone my age. This company was highly recommended by my realtor so I’m glad I went with them. I will be calling them for my move to Florida next year.

This was not the first time I used a moving company. I contacted the company I searched for online. A great gentleman name Jeff answered and walked me through the whole process. He is very knowledgeable. He told me he's been doing this over 18 years and it sounded like it. He gave me a high end estimate which I asked for but our move came well below the original estimate thanks to Jeff in helping me over the phone on how to save money when you deal with a mover. The crew was fantastic and we cant say enough about them. We will definitely use them again and with recommend them to all our friends. They are by far the best in the area. Bravo !

I could not have been happier hiring Tri-State Moving and Storage. In the middle of COVID_19, I had to move across the country while not being at home. Tri-State worked with me through the whole process. They professionally packed all of my items – especially fragile items such as art or expensive furniture – and moved it in their vehicle to their storage facility where they transferred it to a P.O.D. so it could be shipped cross country. They were organized, responsible, professional, and expert. More than that, they demonstrated real empathy and care. I was extremely happy to pay them for their work. Not only did they take care of absolutely everything but they also helped me with complex particulars in a way that showed me they were worth their value. 10/10 will use again. 10/10 would recommend.

Very easy to work with from start to finish. The process to get a quote (and update after packing) it was painless and with quick responses. The movers that came the day of we're skilled and professional. They walked us through the whole process, carefully packed all of our things and we're super efficient. They were recommended to me by a friend who was also doing a move and I will continue to recommend them as well.

I chose this company over other similar quotes as the inventory questions I was asked when getting my quote were the most thorough. I was asked follow up questions that really helped me assess the size of my move and made me confident that I would not end up with any surprise up charges. Our delivery team of three arrived on time and worked quickly. They were all very professional and enjoyable to work with. The big move went until 7:30 pm and the movers encountered difficulties parking their truck on a narrow street to unload. Never did they complain or stop doing what needed to be done in order to get the job done, including moving a pile of trash bags out if they way. (They were careful to put on plastic gloves before going back to touching our items).

Arthur and his crew did an excellent job! They worked very hard! My move was complicated in that some of my furniture and belongings needed to be moved from a townhouse in VA to a townhouse in MD, and some furniture and belongings needed to be placed in storage in MD. Also, once the movers got to the townhouse in MD, they had to move furniture within the house before they could move in the furniture from VA. Arthur and his crew did a superb job, and they were very pleasant to work with! I would recommend them to anyone.

I recently used Tri State to move furniture to my Grandmother's house in D.C. and I have to say that these guys were pretty good overall. They were super friendly when they arrived at my Grandmother's house and the entire move went smooth from pickup to drop-off. I would use them again for sure.

Super impressed with the crew and team leader Sergio. They did my move, did not damage anything and were very efficient managing time. Movers have access to every belonging of a homeowner so trust is very important, I felt very comfortable with the team moving my stuff. They handeleled more technical items flawlessly. I would recommend this company to anyone. The hourly rate is less but I still felt like I was getting 1st Class service. Sergio was very knowledgeable and his assistant was excellent also.

I had to move out of my building because of water damage and I had to move the next day. I was in tears and I called them. A gentleman name Jeffrey picked up and went in detail about the process. He also told me that they offer storage which was amazing since I had to get my stuff out. He scheduled a emergency move for me. Next morning right at 9am a crew of 3 men showed up at my door. They were super super nice. They packed all my belongings properly and loaded it into the truck. They had all the tools and materials. The great part about the whole thing was that once everything was loaded that was it. I didn't have to do anything else. They took my items to the storage. 2 months later I called and scheduled a delivery to my new home and they brought everything back without any damage. This was the smoothest move I have ever done in my life. It was worth every penny. I appreciate that there are still good people and companies out there. I have already recommended them to all my friends and co workers. Thank you Jeff, Paay, Sergio and Erwin. I think I have spelled their names correctly lol:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 : ) ))))))))))))))))))

I was referred to them by a cousin of mine. I have never used a professional moving company so this was the first time. I called and a spoke to a very nice and helpful gentleman name Jeffrey. he walked me through the process and gave me a quote. I told him I would review it and call back. The next day I called back and spoke to Natalie. She was a angel. She was so nice!!!! We decided to go with them and locked in our move date. The day before the move someone called and went over everything with us again. The next day the crew called then showed up on time. I have never seen such hard working, polite and respectful men. Anyway they were well prepared and took care of the whole thing without a scratch on anything. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING !!!! I will recommend this company to anyone that wants a good company they can trust. Tristate Moving is my go to company for any type of furniture moving. five stars and nothing less.

TriState did a great Job! We had a 4-man crew to move our 4BR/3BA from MD to PA. Chris, Irwin, Juan, and Travell were excellent, quick, and very careful with our stuff. We were a self-pack, but they took excellent care in wrapping all of our furniture and large items, and everything showed up without a scratch! I would highly recommend them to anyone, and we will hopefully be using their services again when we have to relocate later this year! Thanks guys!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!After a long process of looking for the right moving company I got Tristate Movers number from a friend who had recently used them. My first initial contact was a phone conversation with Jeff. He was really nice and very informed when it came to the moving industry. He went through the whole process of answering all my questions which was very important to me. See my move is a little different from your average move. I had a three stop move before delivering everything to the final place. I also have a lot of fragile china and furniture. A lot of it has been in my family for hundreds of years so I had to get a moving company that new what to do with all of my stuff. I also needed a full packing job which they also provided. Well I went ahead and reserved a moving date. The big day finally arrived when 4 extremely nice gentleman arrived and started packing our home. The guys were very organized and helpful.. They packed all my china in the proper boxes and labeled everything. The next day two trucks and 6 men showed up on time to get started. I was so relaxed that I went to take care of some errands. By the time I got back most was loaded and ready for delivery. They also stopped at our other locations to pic up more items. I just cant say enough about my experience with this company. I know my move was on the high end side that need more of a white glove service and that's exactly what they provided. The price was very reasonable and they refunded some money back the next day since they finished earlier. I recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a white glove service and is picky like myself.To the crew: THANK YOU FOR CARING FOR MY ITEMSTo Jeff: You are the BEST!!!!!!

I've already recommended Tristate moving and storage to friends. Juan and Erwin were exceptional. They arrived right on time, but I was running late so they didn't start the clock until I arrived. I simply gave them the keys to my storage unit and went to run some errands and met them at my place. They even took pictures of my storage unit once it was completely empty. At first I was skeptical about the method of using shrink wrap to move everything, but it seemed to make the move much faster, and it protected all of my belongings. I was also uncertain about the three hour minimum required when hiring these guys, but they busted their butts to get everything out of my unit and make the drive a couple miles away to unload everything in my apartment and even build my bed in just under three hours. Did I mention my unit doesn't have an elevator? That didn't slow them down either! I didn't have to lift a finger, even though I offered to help. When I needed help unloading a table from my personal vehicle, they helped unload everything in the car, even the groceries. I will never move my own things again--these guys did it in a fraction of the time it would have taken me to unload my storage unit and move into my new place had I coerced a friend to help!

I had the most amazing experience with this company. I lived in a 5 bedroom house in Chevy Chase MD. I hadn't moved for over 15 years so I had forgotten how to move so this was a huge pressure for me. I got this company by searching on google. I called and got a great gentleman on the phone. He gave great information regarding the company and process. He also scheduled me a in-home estimator to give me a more accurate Quote. They came over and gave me a very good quote. What really attracted me was that they do a multiple tasks that makes moving easy. They Pack, Move, Pianos, Antiques, TV's and more. I didn't have to call other companies for these services. On the day of the move the crews arrived on time and did all my packing and moving. Since we had a big house our move was split in two days. One for packing and second day moving. The crew was very professional and knowledgeable. I got to hang out with a very pleasant hardworking crew. They were very helpful and didn't put any pressure on me and my wife. We are going to keep Tristate as our primary movers and we will recommend them to anyone. I give these guys 5 Stars and nothing less. Thank you !!

On the day of the move the crews arrived on time and did all my packing and moving. Since we had a big house our move was split in two days. One for packing and second day moving. The crew was very professional and knowledgeable. I got to hang out with a very pleasant hardworking crew. They were very helpful and didn't put any pressure on me and my wife. We are going to keep Tristate as our primary movers and we will recommend them to anyone. I give these guys 5 Stars and nothing less. Thank you !!

I've done my research and to sum it all up: "EXCELLENT RATES AND GOLDEN CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"Dear readers... People mostly write bad reviews because they're not happy with some ridiculous reason. I have to say Tristate Moving and Storage has gone above and beyond to accommodate their customers. I thought I'd write a quick review and allow you to understand how amazing these guys really are.*The timely response*An accurate and competitive quote*Efficiently and safely moving all of our items*We have some very heavy, fragile items that my wife and I were concerned about moving *TM&S listened to my concerns, and handled the items as if they were the ownersMy movers just left and they did an excellent job! SUPER PLEASED!!TO SUM IT ALL UP A++++

They did an amazing job moving out heavy furniture from a house to a third floor apartment. Quick, professional and reasonably priced. We would definitely use them again!!

After filling out a few forms online I called Tristate from a postcard I received. I spoke to a gentleman name Tom and he was very helpful with all my questions. I talked with my husband and called back and Sandra locked my moving date for me. The crew showed on time and they were very professional. they helped pack my home and move it to the next location. They also helped me with a few fragile items and they did a great job making sure nothing happened to them. I recommended this company to my sister that moving in a few weeks. Great experience!!!
