Across town or across the country, moving is no small feat. But adding these four things to your to-do list can make relocating easier (especially in times of COVID-19)!

If you’re thinking about moving — whether it’s to a new state or just to a new place — here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Plan ahead

Book your moving truck (and movers) as early as possible, especially if you’re moving at the end of the month. If you’re hiring movers, be sure to ask about COVID-19 measures the company has implemented to keep everyone involved healthy and safe.

2. Have more moving supplies on hand than you think you’ll need

You don’t realize how much stuff you have until you have to pack it. Save yourself an extra trip (or 20) to the store by buying ample amounts of moving boxes, tape and bubble wrap. Be sure to also have plenty of hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes and other PPE/sanitizing supplies on hand.

3. Familiarize yourself with the county or state’s COVID-19 rules and regulations

If you’re coming from out of state, keep in mind that each county and state’s COVID-19 safety rules and regulations may differ. Know what to expect and be prepared to follow guidelines and safety measures, especially when planning for pit stops.

4. Coordinate the move-in process

Having a checklist with specific information can make the experience even better. Make sure you know specifics, like where to park your moving truck, what time you can expect to get keys or the code to a digital lock, where the mailbox is, etc.
The reality is, moving can be a stressful experience no matter when or where you’re moving.
