You may plan a relocation short distance move or long distance move half a year in advance or two weeks, and still, you can’t avoid something going not according to the plan. What’s more overwhelming, no one predicted this year is coronavirus pandemic! And it makes everything more complicated. In these conditions, it’s almost impossible to keep everything in mind, so we prepared this list of easily forgotten things before moving.


1. Things To Double Check For Packing:

  • Important documents;
  • Valuables;
  • The medicine you take regularly;
  • Clothes at the dry cleaner;
  • Items from storage;
  • Keys


2. Whom To Notify About The Address Change:

  • The post office;
  • Tax agencies;
  • Wi-fi provider;
  • Utility provider;
  • Social Security;
  • Bank;
  • Insurance providers;
  • Employer;
  • Other financial agencies;
  • Subscriptions and online stores;
  • Friends and family.


3. Schedule A Relocation With A Moving Company.

If you decide to go for a safe option for hiring movers to help you relocate, it is essential to appoint the date as soon as possible because the time before moving may impact the price.

Consider that during the coronavirus pandemic, there are additional precautions every moving company should take. And also you to take care of your health and the moving crew’s. If you don’t see which rules the company is following on the website, it’s worth checking with them online or via a call.

These days many movers switched to online estimation instead of doing it in person. Check with a moving company if it’s possible.


4. Take Care Of Packing Supplies.

We would advise not to choose re-used cardboard boxes as it’s impossible to disinfect them. Safer would be to order new cardboard boxes or rent eco-friendly reusable plastic crates. Usually, moving companies provide a cardboard box for their clients, but if you’d like to reduce a carbon footprint, try our BluBox-It plastic bins. We sanitize our moving crates after each use, so you don’t have to worry about possible virus spread.
