Moving is a big job with a myriad of demanding tasks to complete. Your actual moving day is probably the most complex part of the process. On your moving day Augusta Movers will come out to your location, load up our trucks and carry your possessions to your new home. Even if you choose to handle the moving yourself, there is still a lot of work to do.
Aside from the hustle and bustle of moving, you will also be tasked with directing movers on where to place boxes or which items to move first. Any last-minute tasks such as clean up, packing or even disposal may also fall on your shoulders. With so many things to think about, dressing in a safe and also comfortable manner is very important. Here are some of our top suggestions on what to wear and what to avoid on your moving day.
What Clothes to Wear
Modern fashion has a lot of options which will provide a comprehensive selection of clothes to choose from. When you are packing, you should wear clothing that is comfortable, loose and offers your body protection. During any relocation project, you can expect to be in motion constantly. Make sure that your clothes are loose enough to allow you free movement, but not so baggy as to get caught on boxes or doorknobs. Even if your main job won’t be hauling boxes, you should plan on performing any number of other odd maneuvers.
You should expect to twist, stretch, walk backwards, or even squatting. Basically, you might be doing a whole range of movements that you may not normally perform. You should also make a point of wearing light material that is breathable. You can expect to sweat, even if you are moving in the winter. Consider purchasing a pair of overalls or loose dungarees with pockets to carry little items you may need during your move.
Your feet are just as important as the rest of your body and you should wear shoes that reflect that. During a relocation project, you will be lifting heavy items and moving in and out of the house on a regular basis. A good pair of comfortable shoes will keep your feet from getting sore and tired while also supporting your legs and back. You should avoid open toe shoes for safety, because the last thing you want is to drop the edge of the table on your toe.
When choosing footwear you should think initially about safety and second about comfort. Your moving day will typically last several hours if not the whole day. During this time you can expect to be on your feet. Closed-toe shoes with a sturdy anti-slip bottom are the best option.
If you have long hair, consider securing it in a bun or ponytail. If the weather isn’t too hot, you can even tie your hair in a scarf. Lightweight ball caps are also an option if you want to keep the sun or dust out of your eyes while also keeping your hair out of the way.
