5 Tricks for Staying Safely No-Contact During Your Move to Little Rock

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

For a few months, everyone remained inside and put off their plans - plans for moving, notably. Traditionally, moving involves significant amounts of contact with individuals outside your family and involves some travel. But one can only defer plans for so long. The good news is that it's feasible to get all you need and move without subjecting your loved ones to infection risk. And some useful preparation techniques, It is possible to keep your move contact-free and still go over all your bases.
 

This is a brief, handy guide of ways to complete a household move with virus safety along with social distancing.

1. Prior to the Move: Virtual 3D Tours

Instead of visiting a home for sale or rent, have a online tour. Prioritize residences with a vivid photo tour or a 3d walk-through that gives you a true sense of the home with high-detail imagery. Online tours apply 360 photography to allow you to move from point to point in the residence and look around by simply click-dragging the frame.

2. Moving Materials: Order Ahead for No-Contact Pickup or Delivery

For all the boxes, crating, packing paper, as well as dish packs you need for the move, purchase in advance. Internet or phone orders allows a local moving company in Little Rock or store to prepare your packing material. You might want to come by and pick up the materials curbside, using a no-contact staff in order to load up your trunk. This is usually a less risky solution to shopping for cartons in the flesh.

3. Moving Services: No-Contact Strategies

You'll also need a few tactics for moving without having one on one contact with your professional movers in Little Rock.

Consultations

Find a moving company in Little Rock that offers a no-contact consultation. Many can assess the overall size and contents of your house using a quick video tour hosted on your mobile phone. Simply switch the camera around for the duration of a Zoom video chat (or comparable program) and obtain an estimate without having an in-person walkthrough of the home.

Packing Service

The safest way to pack during pandemic conditions would be to pack yourself. For people who can't or do not want to pack themselves - we advise closing in a single room or suite while the packing crew works in designated spaces to enable the maximum social distancing.

Prepare for No-Contact Truck Loading & Unloading

Also, it is possible to keep a good distance when it's time to load your cartons into, then off of, the moving truck. Regardless if you are driving yourself or employing a moving company in Little Rock, you need to be present when the boxes are loaded for transport but can be socially distant from the moving crew. Remember to have on your mask, also.

Elbow Bump Friendliness

When it comes time to handshake, suggest a friendly elbow-bump as an alternative.

4. Travel: Pack and Isolate

During travel, take care to cut down on your contact with other folks and with public places.

Packed Cooler and Drive-Thru Meals

By pass the restaurants this time around. As an alternative, load up a cooler of sodas and snacks and sandwiches.

Parks and Rest Stops

When you need to exercise your legs, try to find a wide open grassy spot rather than a convenience store. Stop by public rest-stops with fields and picnic benches or seek out community parks. You may even stop by a roadside field. They are all safer compared to populated locations.

Car-Camping or Do-it-yourself Clean Motel Room

Motels might be a potential risk. Should you be moving in good weather with camping supplies, contemplate car-camping as opposed to staying in a motel. If you prefer a motel break, bring clean sheets as well as cleaning supplies. Promptly sanitize the room using surface cleanser and also lay clean sheets over all the pieces of furniture. It is possible to isolate further by using a packed bedroll.

Curbside Pickup Supplies

If you need supplies along the way, use your phone to arrange for curbside pickup. On the road, merely make your order at least a half-hour prior to when you will be pulling into town. This will save you the risk of going into convenience stores and other venues on the way.

5. At the New House: Isolate for Two Weeks of Unpacking

Last but not least, think about scheduling 14 days of full solitude in the new house right after arriving. When it's just you and the cartons, this can be the best time to unpack and makes sure that if you are passive carriers, that any invisible virus can fully run its course.
