Moving During COVID-19: A Guide

Moving is stressful and complicated. Moving during COVID is even more complicated due to all the extra measures needed in the process. However, sometimes a residential move cannot be postponed. If you want to move into your new home but are afraid to do it during a pandemic, here are some tips that will help you move safely.

Smart Packing

Try to order all of your packing materials online. If you need to go to the store, then buy everything you need at once so you limit your outings. You will need boxes, markers, tape, newspaper, and bubble wrap.

Get Online Estimates

Although moving companies usually provide in-home estimates, many of them have started to offer online estimates to reduce COVID transmission risks. Call a few local moving companies to explore your options from the safety of your home.

Sort Your Belongings

The fewer belongings you have, the faster the moving process will be. It makes no sense to spend money and time moving unwanted or unnecessary items. Sell or donate all the things you don’t need before moving to your new home. Start with this process as early as possible, so that you get rid of these things before moving day.

Hire a Responsible Moving Company

Call or check the website of your local moving companies to make sure that they are following 

the guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Here are some of the measures you should expect from your professional moving company:

  • Requiring customers and staff members to wear masks 
  • Setting up sanitation stations
  • Practicing Social Distancing
  • Cleaning and disinfecting all the moving equipment
  • Screening their employees to make sure they aren’t sick
