5 Tips for Moving During COVID

September is a busy moving month. Whether you’re downsizing, sending kids off to college, or moving for a different reason, please stay safe while you relocate. Below are some helpful tips for protecting your loved ones while moving during these unprecedented times.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

If anyone from outside of your household helps you pack, make sure they use PPE. Facemasks, gloves, face shields and disposable booties help minimize contamination. Maintaining social distancing while helping lift a heavy appliance or dresser isn’t an option.

Get a Sitter

If you have young children (or pets) arrange for a babysitter for moving day and possibly the day after so you can unpack. Grandparents, aunties and uncles or close friends would love the opportunity to have some special time with your wee ones.

Wash Your Hands

From wiping sweat off your forehead to sweeping hair out of your eyes, it’s nearly impossible to avoid touching your face while moving. Your best defense from spreading germs or virus is to clean your hands regularly. Place hand sanitizer and wipes at all entrances and staircases and have hand soap with disposable towels in the kitchen and bathrooms to ensure everyone can clean their hands easily.

Do It Yourself

If you are physically able to make the move on your own, now might be a good time to do it. If you’re not, you should try packing as much as you can to minimize the number of people coming in and out of your home.

Donate Unwanted Items

Donating furniture, clothing and non-perishable food you no longer need will both reduce what you have to move and benefit someone who has been negatively impacted by this pandemic. It’s a true win-win.

Virtual Housewarming

Giving a live tour of your new place via video chat or social media is a safe and convenient way to put your new place on display while keeping COVID-19 at bay!
