It’s no surprise that Arizona temperatures can rise well over 100 degrees on any given day during the summer months. Summer time is also the most common time for people to move homes.
In order to keep you and your belongings safe, we have provided tips below to help you stay cool while going through the moving process.
1.Turn Your Utilities On Before You Move In

2. Don’t Forget The Water
In Arizona, It is extremely easy to overheat without even knowing it. You are doing more physical activity than you may realize when moving, so staying consistent in drinking water is key to avoid dehydration. Keep a cooler of water bottles easily accessible for yourself and those helping you move.
3. Get Started Early
In Arizona Summers, you can expect to see the sun start to rise closer to 5:30AM. Temperatures around this time are high 80’s to low 90’s.

After moving to a new home, you might think the last thing you want is more stressful planning. That may be so. But since you’re in planning mode anyway, why not plan a housewarming party? It doesn’t have to be a big, expensive, or crowded gathering. Here are some reasons to commemorate your new home with a celebration:
Let nearby friends know you’re in town
If you’ve moved to a new neighborhood or city in Arizona, you might want to get together with friends who live nearby. Having a party lets your friends know your new address and how to get to your new place. You could ask for housewarming gifts, host a potluck, or just let everyone know to just bring themselves so they can get the grand tour.
Meet your neighbors
Hosting an open house is a way to get to know your neighbors. You can find out who lives nearby, who has kids around your kids’ ages, who has dogs who can play with your dogs, who your next door neighbor hired to do that beautiful landscape, and so on. People in your neighborhood can recommend nearby restaurants, stores, and places of worship that you might have missed when looking things up on Google maps.
Give yourself motivation to unpack
Nothing motivates you to tidy up like having people over. After moving day, you’ll be forgiven if all you want to do is set up the couch so you can crash on it. But the sooner you get everything unpacked and organized, the sooner you’ll feel at home. Muscular Moving Men can help you with installation and unpacking to make the process even more convenient.
Celebrate and relax (finally!)
Celebrate the milestone in your life and allow yourself to live a little now that you have a new place to live. Once you’ve officially marked the housewarming party off your calendar, you can put all the stress of the move behind you for good.
Muscular Moving Men’s comprehensive moving services can help you with everything but the housewarming party – so call us to help plan your move, and then you can get to the fun part!
If moving your business was a blockbuster film, downtime would be the villain. You don’t just want to avoid closures, employee turnover, communication interruptions, and time offline. You also want to avoid losing productivity as you deal with coordinating the move.
That’s why Muscular Moving Men’s commercial moving services include move coordinators who can help you deal with the logistics of moving, well beyond our core service of transporting items from one place to another. For example, we can help you transfer services to get your communications and technology set up. Large projects with multiple buildings take more than some guys and a truck, they take careful orchestration to ensure everything gets moved in an orderly manner with the right equipment. Your business move needs to follow a strict timeline to minimize or eliminate downtime, and professional commercial movers get the job done.
Our project coordinators and movers are well trained and experienced. This should knock down your to-do list to a manageable size:
Inform your employees well in advance of when you plan to move, when they need to pack their personal items, whether they need to transfer or back up any files, and when they’ll be expected at the new location.
Orient your employees to the policies at your new location, if they’ve changed (for instance, if there’s a security code or different parking rules).
Let your customers know when and where you’ll be moving. Set autoresponses for any closures you anticipate. Promote your new location with opening day sales, or send your clients a gift with a reminder and invitation to visit your new office.
Be creative and think about how you want to design the new space to improve workflow and promote company culture. Our coordinators have experience moving a variety of businesses and are happy to share industry best practices that we’ve seen.
Muscular Moving Men can move a lot of items, including heavy furniture and equipment, art installations, office fixtures, and more. One thing we can’t put in our truck is your dog or your cat.
The Part Where We State the Obvious
Even if they’re secured in a kennel and it’s a short trip, the moving truck is no place for the four-legged members of your family. While we take the utmost care to pack the truck in a way that items won’t shift during transport, we still can’t risk anything falling on your pet. Besides, you can imagine it’s pretty scary in a dark truck with no fresh air, not to mention hazardous to your pet’s health.
Secure Pets On Moving Day
What may be less obvious as you approach the big day and have a trillion things on your mind is the need to keep your pets securely away from the movers. If you have a dog or cat in the yard, or behind a closed door in your house, let the movers know so that they don’t accidentally let your pet loose. Dogs get stressed out by a lot of coming and going. You don’t want anyone tripping over your cat, especially while carrying items. And the last thing you want is to have to chase down your fugitive husky when you’re trying to get everything out the door.
Don’t Forget the Pet Essentials
Update your pet’s tags with your new address before the move. Add switching to the new tags to your moving day to do list, so that if they somehow get loose, anyone who finds your pet will know where to reach you. You already know to pack your cell phone charger and daily medications in easy reach. Remember to put the pet food, bowls, and pet medications in easy reach too.
It’s that time of year when gym memberships soar and protein shakes fly off the shelves. Getting fit means different things to different people. Whether you want to fit into your old jeans, bulk up, or simply adopt a healthier lifestyle, the New Year represents a fresh start for a lot of people. Almost as common as making resolutions is quitting resolutions. What’s the secret to keeping your motivation up past the first few weeks of January?
Set Incremental Goals
Goals tend to be big picture visions. But, in order to make that big picture a reality, we need to work on one piece at a time. A workout plan that breaks down exercises into sets you can follow lays out those mini-goals for you. Find an exercise plan that fits your schedule – you can get a book or download plans online. These days, you can even shop around for Youtube channels or fitness apps you like. If you do one day at a time just ten times, you’ll form a habit.
Set Realistic Expectations
If you want to run a marathon, you don’t expect yourself to run all 26 miles on your first day of training. Everyone has to start somewhere, and if you want to get anywhere with a fitness program you need to respect your starting point and pace yourself reasonably. If you start training for that marathon and all you can do is a half-mile, great! You have a baseline to work from.
Pay Attention To Your Body
Your body is not your enemy. When you’re unhappy with your body, you’re more likely to be unhappy when you work out. You’ll be asking, why can’t I be stronger? instead of enjoying your time in the weight room. Don’t compare yourself to other people. Respect pain and fatigue, because these are signals from your body telling you to adjust what you’re doing or take a break. Respect hunger, because it means your body needs fuel — so choose healthy fuel instead of neglecting to eat. Always drink water before you feel thirsty. By following these tips, you work with yourself, not against yourself.
Set Up Accountability
Everybody needs to find their own system. Maybe you get a gym buddy, or maybe investing money in a fitness class will motivate you to show up. Maybe you keep a notebook, or a chart on the wall with stickers like in preschool. Maybe you bribe yourself with treats or shame yourself into honoring your commitment. Whatever system you use, don’t let excuses outsmart it.
A lifestyle of fitness helps keep your energy levels up, improves your mood, and results in long-term health benefits. Happy New Year, and best of luck keeping your resolutions!
One of the challenging aspects of moving is what to do with all of the “junk” that you own. This isn’t trash, per se, but the stuff that you find strewn throughout your house once everything else is packed. These items are things that would look at home in a junk drawer, things you’ve been holding onto that never found a proper home, and things that defy easy categorization. The following are just a few ideas on how to handle the moving detritus.
What to do with your drawer junk when moving
The first thing you should do when you empty out your drawers is to sort through everything and toss what you don’t need. Once you’ve sorted out the actual trash, you’re probably going to be left with small items that could have some use at some point in the future, like rubber bands, loose batteries and more. Take these items and sort them in small Ziploc bags to keep them together during the move.
Once you start unpacking, you’ll want to organize items so that you don’t end up having random clutter again. Pick up some drawer dividers that allow you to separate small items. This way, you can have a section for receipts, coupons and notes, a section for loose batteries, rubber bands and paper clips and a section for pens, pencils and markers.
Make sure that the dividers are shallow so that they don’t end up overflowing with these items. Also, don’t get lazy. If items have a proper place in your household that isn’t the junk drawer, put them away in their right place. The more organized it remains, the more likely you are to find the items you need and to use them regularly so that it’s no longer a “junk” drawer.
On a larger scale, junk drawers teach us how to purge what we don’t need, organize what we have, and identify our lazy habits. Most homes don’t look like magazine covers, because people actually live in them. Clutter, unwanted items, and items without a home are bound to build up, but you can come up with a system to keep everything orderly.
