If you're moving right now, it's probably one of the most stressful moves you've ever undertaken. There is, to put it mildly, a lot going on in the world. And moving is generally considered to be one of the more stressful things people have to do in their lives. Stressing out about everything you have to do, all of the changes that have happened in your private and work life recently (and everybody else).
And then you have to add on top of that all the stress about a virus. And then you've gotta figure out how many cardboard boxes you think you'll need for the house, and get that all organized. Possibly also on top of homeschooling your kids while working from home (or at least keeping them from murdering each other), and having to keep up with a much higher than usual pile of dishes. It's a lot, nobody's going to tell you that it isn't.
Listen. You may not know this, but there are full-service movers. Here's what that means: They get the packing materials that your household will need — furniture wraps and boxes and tape and pads and so on. They pack your stuff. They load your stuff on the truck. This includes the disassembling of large pieces of furniture, if necessary. They move your stuff. They unpack your stuff and put your furniture back together. They even cart off all the boxes, padding, and materials that were used to pack, so you don't have to clean up a load of trash at the end of it.
And yeah, movers (like everybody else) are aware of the whole virus situation and most are taking extra precautions to make sure that everyone's as safe as is reasonably possible.
It's one of the more expensive moving options, sure. But if there's any move in your whole life that deserves having that extra money spent on it, it's probably this one, isn't it? With everything going on, nobody in the world could blame you or claim it's frivolous. You may even actually have the money for it because of the stimulus package people are getting.
Okay maybe you think going for full service is still a little too decadent, but most companies that offer that option will let you pick how much service you want. And if you can pass off any of the logistics of a stressful operation to your local movers, it may be well worth your while to do so.
