How to Move Now that States Are Reopening

Moves and residential relocations may have slowed down due to COVID, but they never stopped completely. With states reopening and restrictions lifting, more people are feeling safe to make that move now. Here’s how to do it safely and without pulling your hair out.

Plan Ahead

Planning ahead is always critical to a successful move, but it’s more important than ever in our COVID world. Determining your move date so you can schedule your moving company is a great first step. You’ll want plenty of time to make sure whoever you hire is in sync with your feelings about safety protocols.

Be Prepared

Any move takes planning and preparation, but these days it’s more important than ever. With restaurants still offering limited service and stores following strict safety guidelines, it’s more difficult to make supply runs in the middle of your move. Having water, snacks, food, extra masks, hand sanitizer, and other necessities on hand ahead of time can make your move day easier and less stressful.

Hire the Right Moving Company

Protecting yourself and your family is your top priority. With COVID, it takes on a whole new meaning. Be sure the company you hire follows the safety protocols you’re comfortable with. Social distancing, wearing masks, and reduced contact make many people feel more comfortable. Talk to your moving company before you hire them to be sure you’re on the same page. Life is a little crazier than usual these days, but states are reopening, and life is getting back to some sort of normal. If you’re moving to a new home, whether across town or across the country, contact Nilson Van and Storage to help make it safe, smooth, and hassle-free.
