3 Moving Tips to Reduce Stress During Coronavirus Times


As if moving isn’t stressful enough, let’s throw a global pandemic in the mix, shall we? Being amid a world-wide virus does not mean life comes to a screeching halt. Yes, our daily routines have been temporarily interrupted. But life goes on! For some of us, this means the big move on the calendar is still happening. While this may not be the most optimal time, you can get it done, and A Mother’s Touch Movers can help. We are committed to creating a moving plan as unique as you. From start to finish, we have all your needs covered. Here are some moving tips to keep you moving forward without heaping on tons of additional stress.

Moving Tip #1: Plan Ahead

Did you know that movers are considered essential? Therefore, A Mother’s Touch Movers is open and ready to serve you. We have the knowledge and experience to help you transition with ease. One of our biggest moving tips is to plan, plan, and plan some more

You may not have access to everything you are accustomed to at the moment, but you can still pull out your planner or excel sheet to plan your upcoming move. For example, schedule your packing days and determine what packing supplies you need. You can purchase or borrow accordingly! Do not forget to book the moving truck in advance. Once you check these tasks off your list, you will feel accomplished and stress-free.  

Moving Tip #2: Control What You Can 

You cannot control COVID-19, how soon businesses reopen, or what others do. But you can manage your plans and reactions.

Stick to your to-do list and prepare for your upcoming move. Call the utility office to schedule shut off and turn on at your new home. Reroute the mail. Alert any online accounts you have to your new address. If you have any services such as pest control or lawn care, let them know you are moving and decide whether or not you want to enlist them at your new property.

So much is up in the air right now. We know the lack of information can be frustrating. However, when you focus on what you can do rather than what you cannot accomplish right now, you will find extra peace and comfort.

Moving Tip #3: Celebrate Small Victories

You got your kitchen packed up! Great job. You canceled mail service at your current home. Way to go! You scheduled your moving truck with lots of time to spare. Look at you! It may sound cheesy, but small victories get the big job done. Take time to be proud of yourself for what you got done.
