The Do's & Don'ts of Dressing Like a Mover, Cincinnati, Ohio

As you prepare for moving day, you probably won’t forget to stock up on boxes, tape, and other essential packing supplies. But what about preparing the people doing the packing? If you’ll be helping your hired movers, you’ll need to be dressed for the job. To pick out the perfect packing ensemble, take advantage of the following do’s and don’ts.


Dress with weather in mind.

A few days before the big day, check the weather forecast online, and make sure you can dress appropriately. While you should wear a jacket if it’s going to be chilly—and a water-resistant one in the rain or snow—keep in mind that you’ll be going back and forth between the outdoors and the interior of your home or vehicle all day. Therefore, it’s best to wear multiple light layers so you can adjust accordingly.

Wear slip-resistant shoes.

moversWhile lifting items, the possibility of a slip-and-fall becomes all the more dangerous, so pick out shoes with a decent amount of traction. If you’re going to help the movers load items into a truck, it can get especially slippery as dew from your yard comes in contact with the metal floors. For peace of mind, opt for sneakers in warm weather and rubber-bottom boots in the winter.


Wear loose clothing.

While you’ll want to be comfortable enough to bend over to pick items up, as well as use a full range of motion, make sure your clothes are as form-fitting as possible. Baggy clothes can easily get caught on items, and if you’re moving quickly or carrying something heavy, it’s easy to get hurt. For the best of both worlds, aim for stretchy workout clothes. 

Accessorize with jewelry.

Although you’ll probably have most of your accessories packed away, take off any of your everyday jewelry before moving day. Bracelets, necklaces, and earrings can get caught on items or accidentally pulled by one of your happy helpers, injuring you and potentially damaging your priceless keepsakes.
