The day of your move arrives, and you roll out of bed to find that the temperature outside is scorching. If you're moving in the summer, this is is a very likely scenario. Luckily, with the tips below, you can ensure your moving day is safe, comfortable, and not too hard on your items.

Thankfully, these problems are issues of the past now that technology is changing the way self storage facilities operate.
