  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.

    • Sell the stuff you don’t need. There are many sites where you can sell used items. Craigslist is one of them. Just make sure that the items you want to sell are not damaged. Or at least offer a reasonable price if they are damaged.
    • Hire a moving company. Many couples think that their move will be less expensive if they don’t hire a moving company. But, in most cases, that’s not true. Movers are experienced and skilled, they know how to move everything without problems.
