5 Tricks for Staying Safely No-Contact During Your Move to Colorado Springs

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For a number of months, everybody kept indoors and put off their plans - plans for moving, notably. Traditionally, moving entails a lot of contact with individuals outside your household and involves a bit of travel. However one can only put off plans for so long. The great news is that it's doable to get everything required and move without subjecting your family to infection threat. With a few effective organizing techniques, you can keep your move contact-free and still go over all your bases.
 

This is a quick, practical guide of strategies to accomplish a household move with virus safety along with social distancing.

1. Before the Move: Virtual 3D Tours

Instead of touring a property for purchase or rent, take a virtual tour. Prioritize residences with a vivid photo tour or a 3d walk-through that gives you a genuine experience of the space using high-detail imagery. Online tours make use of 360 photography to allow you to move from room to room in the residence and look around simply by click-dragging the frame.

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

For the boxes, crating, packing paper, along with dish packs you'll need for the move, purchase ahead of time. Internet or telephone orders makes it possible for a local moving company in Colorado Springs or retailer to get ready your packing material. You might come by and pick up the cartons curbside, using a no-contact crew to load up your trunk. This is a less risky solution to shopping for cardboard boxes in person.

3. Moving Services: No-Contact Approaches

You will also want to know a couple of tactics for moving without one on one contact with your professional movers in Colorado Springs.

Consultations

Look for a moving company in Colorado Springs that offers a no-contact consultation. Many can look at the overall size and contents of your household by using a brief video tour hosted on your mobile phone. Effortlessly 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 approach to pack throughout pandemic conditions is to pack yourself. For individuals who can't or do not wish to pack themselves - we suggest closing in one space or suite whilst your packing team works in allocated spaces to enable the maximum social distancing.

Arrange for No-Contact Truck Loading & Unloading

Also, you can keep a safe distance when it is time to load your cartons into, then off, the moving truck. Whether you're driving yourself or working with a moving company in Colorado Springs, you should be present when the cartons are loaded for transport but can be socially distant from the moving crew. Don’t forget to have on your mask, too.

Elbow Bump Friendliness

When the time comes to handshake, suggest a friendly elbow-bump instead.

4. Travel: Pack and Isolate

While traveling, take care to cut down on your contact with other people and with public environments.

Packed Cooler and Drive-Thru Food

Skip the dining establishments this time around. Instead, prepare a cooler of sodas and snack foods as well as sandwiches.

Parks and Rest Stops

If you want to stretch out your legs, search for a wide open grassy area rather than a convenience store. Stop at public rest-stops with fields and picnic benches or try to find community parks. You may even stop by a roadside field. They all are less risky when compared with populated areas.

Car-Camping or DIY Clean Hotel Room

Hotels could be a potential risk. For anyone who is moving in nice weather conditions with camping supplies, consider car-camping rather than staying in a hotel. If you need a hotel break, bring clean sheets in addition to cleaning supplies. Immediately sanitize the room by using surface cleaner and place clean sheets over all the furniture. You can separate more using a packed bedroll.

Curbside Pickup Supplies

If you need supplies along the route, use your cell phone to arrange for curbside pickup. On your way, just place your order at the very least a half-hour before you'll be pulling into town. This saves you the danger of visiting convenience stores and other locations along the way.

5. At the New Residence: Separate for 14 Days of Unpacking

Last but not least, give some thought to scheduling 14 days of full solitude in the new home after arriving. When it is just you and the cartons, this is actually the ideal time for you to unpack and ensures that should you be passive carriers, that any invisible virus will fully run its course.
