Moving in the winter months is never fun, yet Covid provides an additional level of dread to your already full list of things to stress about. In addition to keeping track of the weather reports, your ears are on ready alert when it comes to periodic coughs and also sneezes. Covid fears can turn a harmless sniffle into a two-week quarantine, so of course you're excessively anxious should you be preparing to move.

Thankfully, it is possible to safely move to Little Rock during Covid if you simply stick to these four tips for a healthy move.

Moving companies in Little Rock are regarded as essential, and most are open for business.

Follow the Three W's

Wear a mask. In winter weather, wear it even in the home--there is not much air flow in a sealed-up house so take the added action of covering your face even around family. If you live in a warmer climate it is not essential to wear it in the house, but once the movers arrive make sure everybody has a mask on at all times.

Wash your hands--a lot. Use soap rather than hand sanitizer whenever possible. If you cannot wash, use hand sanitizer, however scrub with soap and hot water whenever possible.

Wait for the professional movers in Little Rock to perform their jobs--stay six feet apart, and just wait. Fight the impulse to hand the crew boxes and small furniture pieces, and simply help from a distance. It's generally best to stay out of the way even absent a pandemic and let the professionals work in peace.

Disinfect Your new House Prior To When You Move In

Remain on Top of State Regulations

States are doing their best to help keep businesses running as well as possible, yet even vital stores are operating shorter hours. Before you pack up, make sure you will be able to take care of the essentials such as shopping for groceries once you get to your new house, and that prescriptions are filled before going. You'll be able to order online for delivery in most areas at this point; consult grocery stores and apps such as Instacart to understand what is available in your area.
