It goes without saying that Arizona is HOT. And the worst part is, it comes out of nowhere. One day you’re enjoying the cool breeze with the windows down in your car, and next thing you know you’re getting third degree burns from touching the steering wheel.
Being a business in Phoenix for over 10 years, we are more familiar than we’d like to be with the AZ summers. So, from one Arizona resident to another, read below to see how we survive these scorching hot months.
1. Drink, Drink, Drink.
Think you’re a good water drinker? Think again. Come summer time in Arizona, one bottle of water is enough to last you from the front door to your car. And between the time you start the car and when the A/C is finally cold, you’ll need another bottle or 2. Play it safe and aim to drink a couple bottles of water an hour to keep hydrated.
2. Sunblock is the New Lotion
Moisturizing after a shower? Ditch the lotion. Sunblock is your new best friend. With UV Radiation at 11.4, Arizona is in the extreme range when it comes to the strength of the sun rays. This means you could be looking at first degree burns within 10 minutes of being outside. Lather up and stay protected BEFORE leaving the house.
3. Heat Stroke is No Joke
Knowing the signs of heat stroke is a must when living in Arizona. Lack of sweating, feeling cold, fast heart rate, abdominal and leg cramps, and dizziness are just a few of the major signs to look out for with heat stroke.
Muscular Moving Men wants everyone to be safe and have fun this summer. Hire our trained professionals to move you into your next home and avoid this killer heat!
Moving yourself is hard. No matter how much time you take preparing, things will come up, and you will be forced to kick your fool proof plan to the curb to make the needed adjustments.
These “things” that come up can be quite costly and throw your budget out the window. Hiring movers can eliminate many of these worries, as well as keep some cash in your pocket.
Still not convinced? Check out these 4 hidden costs of moving that no one plans for.
The first step to moving is usually always packing. You map out what you have, how many boxes you may need, and get to work. Eventually, you realize just how must stuff you have accumulated throughout the years. You start to notice that you have items that need special padding and wrapping, and even specific boxes for things like your clothes. The cost of boxes, padding, shrink wrap, and all the other needed items really add up. With Muscular Moving Men, you can count on us to pad and wrap all your items at no additional cost.
Money saved when hiring Muscular Moving Men: $150-$400
2. Physical Capability
Don’t get us wrong, we have no doubt you are in great shape. But when it comes to moving, it can be hours upon hours of bending, lifting, and running back and forth to load and unload your items. Without the proper form or right amount of help, the only trip you will be taking is to the doctor. Avoid the medical bills and trust the professionals at Muscular Moving Men. We have the muscles for a move made easy.
Money saved when hiring Muscular Moving Men: $50-200
3. Baby (or pet) Sitters
It’s hard to chase around a child or a pet when you’re packing your valuables. Paying someone, whether it be with cash or food, can get costly. With hiring movers, you’ll be able to have the family all together to reminisce on old memories (and plan new ones), while we handle the difficult task of moving.
Money saved when hiring Muscular Moving Men: $60-$120
Your garage may be filled with tools, but do you have the exact ones that IKEA used when they came to put your bedroom set together? Maybe. But odds are, no. Muscular Moving Men comes fully prepared with all the needed tools to take that furniture apart AND put it back together for you at no additional cost.

May is National Moving Month! That means that this is the busiest and most common time for people to relocate.
With all the craziness that comes with moving, it may be hard to think of anything outside of getting into your new home. Thankfully, Muscular Moving Men has a suggestion that may make the moving process a little easier for you, and make a huge impact of the lives of other people in your community.
The most stressful room in the house to pack is probably the kitchen. Between all the cooking utensils and pots and pans, you find yourself wondering if you are ever going to get everything in boxes. On top of that, you have a TON of food in your fridge and pantry, and half of it you have no desire to bring along. Your next step may be to start throwing items away. But instead of wasting the food, why not donate it?
That is where Move for Hunger comes in! This great organization encourages those who are moving to donate their non-perishable items. You’re probably thinking, “I don’t have time to drop off this stuff somewhere else, I’m in the middle of moving!” No worries though, The process is easy and takes little effort on your part.
Simple put the food aside that you wish to donate. Move for Hunger will send someone to box up all the food and transport it to the nearest food bank. For there, your donated items will be distributed to those in need!
So, clean out those pantries and make a difference in your community! At the end of the day, nothing beats the feeling of giving back.
No rest day for these muscles! Hiring Muscular Moving Men for all your moving needs is a must. But, in case you’re still not convinced, here’s 3 reasons why we are the top choice when it comes to moving.
1. Surprise Parties Aren’t Our Thing, So Don’t Worry About Hidden Fee’s Jumping Out At You.
At Muscular Moving Men, we do our best to give you the correct estimate for your move. With our flat hourly rate, you’ll know what to expect when the bill comes. If we ever suspect things may go a little over or under, we will always make sure to let you know ahead of time. For an even more accurate quote, we offer FREE onsite estimates.
2. We Don’t Just Hire Men With Muscles, We Hire Men You Can Trust, Too.
Don’t get us wrong, we love hiring men with muscles. But what is more important to us is hiring men that you can trust in your home. All our movers go through training at our headquarters to ensure they handle your belongings the best way possible without any damages. We also do background checks and hire only non-smokers.
3. We Will Never Leave You In The Dark.
Communication is key in every relationship, and we aim to form a lifelong one with our customers. You can count on us to call the day before your move to confirm, the day of to let you know the men are on their way, and the day after to address any questions or concerns. Need to speak with us before then? Don’t hesitate to call our office and speak with one of our staff members.
Moving day is stressful, there is no doubt about it. You have probably heard your fair share of horror stories when it comes to moving. You may have even heard a small amount of success stories where the move went smoothly and everything happened the way it should have, with minimal issues. Those stories are few and far between because many people fail to properly prepare for moving.
Muscular Moving Men wants every moving experience you have to be a piece of cake, so we have collected the top things you MUST do before having movers come over.
1. Learn When To Let Go.
We know you want to take that purse and those shoes that have been sitting in the back of your closet for the past 5 years, but for the sake of space, it may be best to give them away. Moving is the perfect opportunity to use up/get rid of things you can’t/don’t need to take with you. So be sure to use up those perishable food items and consider donating those clothes you haven’t worn since high school. Don’t worry, your new closet will be spacious enough for new things! (Can you say SHOPPING?!)
2. Label, Label, and Then Label Some More
In the case of moving, there is no such thing as “over labeling.” If you are packing yourself, be sure to write with a bold black marker what part of the house the box belongs in. If you are having your movers pack, be sure to use sticky notes to label what needs to be packed and what doesn’t. The same goes for larger items; Use those same sticky notes to place on the furniture/larger items that you plan on having the movers take, and put aside the items you want to take yourself.
3. Create an Inventory
Packing can get overwhelming. One minute you’re putting dishes in a box, and the next you’re looking at an old photo album with your 5th glass of wine in hand. Because of this, it’s easy to forget what you packed. Make sure to take pictures or create a list of everything you have packed. This way, if anything goes missing or gets damaged, you won’t have to question if the bottle of wine was a good idea or not.
4. Keep it Light
As we said before, moving is stressful. No matter how much you plan, always understand that their may be a detour here or there. Do your best to maintain a sense of humor and remember- it is all worth it in the end!
We want to act surprised, but it’s really no shocker that Arizona has skipped spring. Barely half way through April, we can expect to see temperatures already reaching 99 degrees!
Whether you are native to Arizona or not, dealing with the heat never gets easier. We at Muscular Moving Men can completely sympathize with the grieving process most experience when the hot months start to approach. Thankfully, AZ Central can relate too! Below are the 7 stages of emotion we can expect to experience when the summer months are approaching, courtesy of AZ Central News.
Stage 1: Mild panic. Sometime in February there’s a brief hot spell where the temperature rises to about 85. It seems like things are escalating too quickly. Those couple of nights in December and January in the upper 30s apparently took away any tolerance we had developed to warm weather and this minor temperature bump stirs a little panic. Like when you find yourself rocking out to that one randomly awesome Miley Cyrus song — it’s not a major event, but it’s troubling.
Stage 2: Sadness. The first 100 degree day provokes sadness, especially if it’s in early April. We wonder why the first settlers decided to make a home here in the Valley, not up in Prescott. Or why didn’t they all settle in California? Did they predict the high taxation and that weird thing where motorcycles whip between lanes on the freeway and scare the bowel movement out of you?
Stage 3: Shock. The first 110+ degree day, hopefully in June, occasionally in May, always surprises us by reminding us just how hot that is. Like, it hurts to touch things that have been in the sun, including your shirt. In my old car (not the Camaro), my rear view mirror melted off. That’s weird.
Stage 4: Excitement. When the first monsoon storm sweeps in, usually around July 4th. So exciting. Unless you’re on the road driving toward it.
Stage 5: Resignation. By late July, even with occasional monsoon storms, we just leave town, generally to San Diego. You know how sometimes your wife turns on HGTV, and you’re like, I don’t mind watching these folks look for a house in suburban Tulsa. And after that, another episode, and another, and then by about the fourth one, you’re like, I hate this lady. Why is this guy even with her, and why on Earth are they moving to Fresno? They think the deal breaker with this three-bed, two-bath rambler is that it doesn’t have a bigger master suite? How about the fact that the kitchen is from 1985 and it has the curb appeal of a dirty cabbage? And then you realize you’ve reached your limit, so you grab the remote and turn on Sportscenter. It’s like that.
Stage 6: Anger. By early October, long after the vacations, when it’s still 100, even the gentlest Phoenicians are so tired of the heat that they just want to get into a fight. With anyone. It’s not that any single day of our heat is that bad; it’s certainly better than a bad winter day in the Midwest. The difference is a week after their -20 day, they get a +20 day that feels like summer. Here, every day is 100+ for five months. I transform from a reasonable, caring man to an indecent, offensive neck-puncher. And so do you, jerk.
Stage 7: Relief. But then all is forgiven on that October morning when you walk outside to a chill in the air (i.e., low in the upper 60s — settle down, Midwesterners). Break out the long-sleeve shirts and full-length yoga pants, and bundle up like we’re in Game of Thrones because winter is coming and in about six weeks it’s going to be 39 degrees some night, which feels so cold after living through summer that it hurts your feelings.
Arizona’s most trusted name in moving and storage has joined together with the Glendale Police Department(GPD) to help domestic violence victims find their fresh start. Muscular Moving Men is working with the GPD Special Victims Unit by donating one free move a month.
Founded in Phoenix in 2008, Muscular Moving Men is a full-service moving and storage company established by Justin Hodge and Josh Jurhill on one simple philosophy: provide amazing moving service and great customer care at a competitive price. The energetic young company quickly rose to prominence thanks to its team of fit, friendly and efficient movers that work hard to treat every customer like a VIP. With business booming, owners Josh and Justin knew there was more they could be doing. They started with the Hope Women’s Health Center, donating moves and helping them with relocating to a new facility. Eventually, Glendale Police Department got word of this and wanted to join in on being a part of this act of selflessness. With no hesitation, Muscular Moving Men jumped at the opportunity.
Although it was not easy to hear about what these victims went through, it sparked a fire that made MMM want nothing more than to help be a part of the new start in their lives. “Unfortunately, families and children are still victims of domestic violence. It makes me sick that families, especially children, have to be put through a violent upbringing. I was appalled to hear some of the stories that the Police Department shared and I was eager to get our company involved. Starting in 2017, we made it a policy to donate a free move each month to relocate high risk families from abusers and get them into a safe home,” says Co-Owner Justin Hodge. The promise was upheld, and the process began almost immediately.
Since implementing this process, MMM has done over 15 free moves in partnership with the Glendale Police Department. But it is more than just offering a free move; It is offering change, a fresh start to those who need it most. Muscular Moving Men will continue to attribute this small act of kindness to these victims in hopes that it gives them the new beginning they have been looking for.
Let’s face it, Moving is on everyone’s list of “Least Favorite Things To Do.” Because of this, it is common to wait until the last minute to get everything done. You start shoving things in boxes, taking things apart, and praying in the back of your mind that you don’t have to make more than one trip to get everything settled.
Ultimately, it never goes the way you plan; Things get broken, friends who promised to help bail, and one trip turns into five.
The good news is, there is a solid solution to avoid all this stress; Hire movers! It may seem like an unneeded expense, but it pays off in the long run. Still not a believer? Here’s four reasons why you need to hire movers.
You will be able to dodge that backache
Moving is physically demanding in more ways than one. It isn’t just moving boxes from one place to another. You are lifting, bending, moving up and down stairs, and many other things. One wrong move and you may find yourself down for the count.
Your Friends Won’t Regret Meeting You
The first thing we do when we know we are moving is call friends. And the first thing they want to do is say no. No amount of bribing could make anyone want to get up at 7am on a Saturday to shuffle boxes around. Instead, invest in using movers so you can invite your friends over to enjoy your new home once you are all settled in.
Movers Have All The Right Equipment
What’s worse than knowing you must take apart all the furniture in your house and lugging in down a flight of stairs? Realizing you don’t have the tools to do so. Movers will evaluate what you have in your home to determine exactly what they need to bring to create a smooth moving process with no damages.
It Will Save You Money
The initial price tag of hiring movers can be intimidating, but it saves you way more money than if you were to do it alone. People tend to underestimate all the costs that go into moving. Here are just a few examples that could cost you more than you expect: Ineffective packing can cause things to break, renting too small of a truck could result in more trips back and forth, feeding your helpers can get pricey, especially if moving a large home, and lets not forget the tools you need but may not have to take everything apart. In the end, that intimidating price tag is working in your favor.
