Tips for Moving While Sick

Last Updated on: 14th January 2024, 07:03 am

You’ve planned, made 100 lists, and hired a reliable Campbell moving company. Moving day should be a breeze! But then something you can’t plan for happens: You wake up sick on moving day.  While rescheduling the move would be the ideal option, that’s not possible in most cases. Instead, here are a few tips to help you make it through moving day when you’re not feeling your best.

Call for Backup
Even if you thought you had everything covered, being sick changes the moving game. It’s time to call for reinforcements. Try to find a neighbor or family member who can oversee the moving operation on your behalf. Even if you still plan to be present, you’ll need some help so you don’t have to overdo it.

Let the Campbell Movers Do the Heavy Lifting
You were smart enough to hire a trusted Campbell moving company, so let them do their jobs. Many people try to help the movers, or feel bad just sitting there while others do the work. Even if that is your personality, on this day when you’re feeling under the weather, just let the movers move while you conserve your energy for getting better.

Find a Place to Rest
If possible, head to a neighbor’s home to rest for a bit. If that isn’t an option, perhaps you can find a few minutes of refuge in a room that has already been emptied. You can also retreat to your car for a few minutes of much-needed quiet and solitude.

The Organizing Can Wait
Once you make it through the move itself, stop. The work of getting your new home organized can wait. Throw some sheets on your bed, climb in, and get the rest you need.
