Moving is stressful enough as it is, and in a pandemic, it may seem downright impossible. It IS possible to move right now, and just in time for May’s National Moving Month and the busy spring and summer season, the local pros at UNITS Moving and Portable Storage created the ‘Pandemic Moving Plan’ to help locals pack up and head out safely.

Tips for moving to a new home while stay-at-home orders are in place
Portable storage companies like UNITS Moving and Portable Storage bring the container to you and set it in a convenient, ground-level location so you can load stuff at your own pace. Once the container is ready to go, the portable storage company moves the container to store it in their climate-controlled warehouse or moves it to your new home, so you can unload it yourself.
UNITS is monitoring information provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local government officials to ensure the safety of our workers and clients:
