You can still move, and you can do so without jeoparding your health and the health of your loved ones. And the moving process does not have to be stressful for you, either. In fact, there are six ways to make moving easier for you during the coronavirus.
1. Pay Attention to Local, State, and Federal Laws
Information on COVID-19 quickly develops, and often you find out something new every day and throughout your day. At a moment’s notice, lawmakers can change their course of action. Restrictions can be suddenly put into place.
Make sure that you are aware of all of the laws that pertain to you. Follow your elected leaders on social media, and also be sure that you pay attention to your daily newscasts. You do not want to be caught off-guard or under-prepared.
2. Stay on Top of Sanitation
When you are moving, you will need to ensure you are keeping yourself and your loves healthy. You must be certain to stay on top of sanitation.
Do not forget to fully clean anything that has been in storage or anything that could have come in contact with the coronavirus that has not been recently cleaned.
You need to take care of this before putting any of these items in your boxes and moving trucks.
Make sure that your new residence has been fully sanitized, too. And if you decide to hire professional cleaners, you must be certain to only hire those with a stellar reputation. If they do not have a website or social media that highlights reviews, you must be sure to ask for references.
3. Provide Extra TLC to Expensive Items
Make sure that all of your expensive items are given some extra TLC. You do not want to arrive at your new residence only to see that your designer sofa, specialty mattress, antique painting, or crystal chandelier has been damaged. As a general rule of thumb, you want to put your most expensive items into moving vehicles and storage facilities first and up-high if possible.
Be certain you know all of the steps to packing, labeling, and moving your items successfully. You might even want to jot down the best ways to do this.
4. Consider Using Storage Facilities
You might want to make use of storage facilities. You can rent them with short-term agreements, or you can book a longer arrangement. And in most communities, you should be able to find a storage facility that will work with your budget.
Be certain that you only use insured and licensed facilities. Make sure that your unit does not have moisture or draft issues, and you might want to also find a unit that is temperature-controlled.
5. Be Sure to Alert the Appropriate People
Don’t forget to let your mail carriers, billers, and anyone else you normally stay in touch know about your move. You have a lot on your plate during the coronavirus pandemic, and you might forget to think about some of those contacts and alerting them.
Make a list of every business that has your address and update them with your new address. Be sure to make a list of all of your family and friends that need to be alerted and let them know. And don’t forget to let your employer know of your new address, too.

6. Hire Professionals Movers
To make the move as stress-free as possible you should hire professional movers. They are more affordable than you would think, and these experts have years of experience. And it might be nice to let them take care of most of your COVID-19 related concerns.

Not only will your movers practice health safety, like wearing a mask and gloves, when handling your items. They will also have the equipment, time, and experience needed to move your items without breaking them.
Do not let all the worries and fears surrounding the coronavirus pandemic keep you from having a safe and successful move. Through one or more of the suggestions above, you can do this.
