The COVID-19 pandemic has everyone on edge. If you are one of the lucky people who have been able to get a move in before everything shut down, congratulations!
But even if you haven’t started yet, don’t worry – we’ve got your back. In this blog post, we will give you some tips for moving during COVID-19 that will help keep your sanity and stuff intact.
But first, a few ground rules:
If you are not feeling well, please stay home. You do not want to spread your illness to others.
If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or if you live in an area that has been identified as being in a state of emergency, please do not move.
If you are moving locally, it is still important to take precautions. Gloves and masks are recommended, as well as social distancing.
Now that we have that out of the way, here are our tips for moving during COVID-19:
Tip #01: Sanitize everything. This includes your boxes, your truck, your furniture – everything. You don’t want to bring any extra germs with you to your new home.
Tip #02: Make sure you have all the supplies you need before you start packing. This includes boxes, tape, markers, garbage bags – anything and everything you might need. It’s also a good idea to pack a few snacks and drinks, just in case.
Tip #03: Pack light. You don’t want to be lugging around heavy boxes when you’re already stressed out about the move. Try to pack only what you need and leave the rest at home.
Tip #04: Label your boxes. This will make it much easier to unpack once you get to your new home. And make sure you put the room each box is going in next to the label – this will help your movers know where everything goes.
Tip #05: Take breaks! Moving is hard work and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Make sure you take regular breaks and give yourself time to relax. You’ll be glad you did when it’s all over.
Tip #06: Keep your sanity. This is probably the most important tip of all. Moving is stressful, but it’s important to remember that things will get done in their own time. Take a deep breath and try to stay calm – it’ll make the process a lot easier.
And there you have it – our top tips for moving during COVID-19! We hope these help make your move as stress-free as possible. Stay safe and good luck!
