Moving During COVID-19? My experience

As if that were not enough, in addition to the health and economic crisis that we are currently experiencing, also now it is time to move, either due to the completion of a lease or a new job opportunity, you are probably wondering, what things must take into account when moving in a time of crisis like the current one, so that it is as safe as possible.

I am not a doctor or anything like that, but in this post I will share some considerations that I took. Doing some of the things I’ll mention in this article made my move easier and safer. This website provides you with complete information regarding moving a home or office.

choice of place

Scammers are the order of the day these days, due to the crisis we are experiencing and the limitations we have due to COVID, so I recommend that you do not send money to anyone before you are absolutely sure that it is not a scam, To make sure of this, you can opt for video calls to the person who is planning to rent you and ask for a tour of the place, in this way you avoid coming into contact with other people and you will also have a clearer perspective on the space that you are going to have available.

Think about your needs, if you work from home you can prioritize having a slightly spacious living room, since you will probably spend most of your time there. I guess a lot of people are in the same situation, so I recommend keeping that in mind when looking for a new place.

Regarding the packaging 

When it comes to packing, you will most likely need packing supplies. I recommend using online services that offer packing supplies like boxes of all sizes, bubble wrap, tape, and anything else you can think of to the move. The advantage of this type of service is that it avoids going to the commercial place and entering crowds of people where you can contract the virus.

How to order the boxes and packaging

I found it very easy and practical to label the boxes so that I had a visual and quick identification of what each of them contained, it is also very useful, since if you hire a moving company you can tell them where to the house corresponds to each box and thus you will save time and effort of moving them yourself to the place where you are going to unpack them. Get detailed information regarding shifting from one place to the other on this dedicated website:

How to hire the moving company 

My strategy in this task was to look for a moving company that would take care of all the work of the transfer and that would also provide health guarantees to both its staff and its clients and that would also have good prices and a good rating.

To make sure that we were at the correct physical distance between myself and the movers, I stayed on the balcony while they were moving everything and also made sure that they were wearing masks and gloves. The same thing happened upon arrival at my destination.

Things I learned:

If you have animals you can ask your veterinarian to take care of them on those days, almost all veterinarians have this service, and once you are settled you can pick them up.

Reserve 500 euros for any improvisation that may arise, it is quite useful to have money on hand at such times.

Once the move is complete, the hard part is over.

It is now recommended that you quarantine away from your new neighbors for about 2 weeks, or you can take a COVID-19 test to make sure you are not infected and do not expose your neighbors.

When you have taken all the precautions and have moved in, explore your new neighborhood, with all the biosecurity measures of course.  Get detailed information about closing your luggage and moving your office on this website:
