Working with Friends and Movers

Masks Indoors

When people are moving or packing inside in non-family groups, be sure to mask-up. Comfortable cloth masks are both breathable and convenient to use indoors.

Moving can be hard work. When you want to take off your mask to have a breather, go outdoors. People may even take breaks together with 6+ feet apart and masks off. This can be an important way for reducing any mask-heat aggravations (you understand the feeling).

Work in Various Rooms

If you have a group of buddies or professional movers, have teams operate in distinct areas. Dividing rooms could also help break up the work. You might play music on smart speakers or loudly from a central location to share energy.

Clean As You Go

When you move a carton, clean the surrounding space. Every box you move, thoroughly clean along the way. Sanitize high-touch areas like countertops and kitchen tables several times throughout the day.

Arranging the Road Trip

The road trip is a vital part of any medium to long-distance move. If you need to drive several hours or maybe overnight, commit to lessen your contact with others while traveling.
