What you chose to wear on moving day can make all the difference. Wearing the correct attire is the starting point for any successful move. Moving is a very demanding activity and you should be prepared both emotionally and physically for the task ahead.
Here are some tips on what to put on when moving.
Before you begin
If you are lifting heavy boxes and furniture keep in mind that moving can be tiresome so plan the day accordingly allowing for beaks. Make sure you have bottled water at hand, enough for the whole day.
Check the weather
Use your common sense, if it is hot and sunny wear shorts and a t-shirt, if it is raining you should wear something waterproof like a rain coat or rain poncho.
Clothing with multiple pockets
This is the most convenient way to store your ‘immediate’ items such as phone, wallet and keys. Deep pockets are the best particularly if you have to disassemble things like furniture and need somewhere to store screwdrivers and allen keys for quick access.
Comfortable, closed-toe shoes
With most stuff out of its usual position you never know when you may accidentally step on a something sharp or drop something you are carrying. To avoid these potential risks, be proactive and wear close-toed shoes on the moving day, if you can wear steel toes capped boots or at least opt for practical shoes which are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Tie back long hair
Long hair may keep obstructing your view or get caught up in furniture, this can be risky especially if you are carrying heavy items with another person, don’t put them at risk tie your hair back.
