Moving is always tricky. Whether it's across town or across the country, there's a lot of planning that goes along with any move. I myself moved to Sioux Falls just two weeks before Coronavirus took hold. It was stressful enough moving 300 miles from eastern Iowa to South Dakota in its own right. I can't imagine what it would be like moving during the pandemic.

For most of us, our lives are on hold. Moving is the last thing on our minds. Heck, we aren't even leaving home for the most part! But for some, they don't have a choice. Maybe you lost your job recently and are moving back with a family member to save money? Or maybe you found a job somewhere else and are forced to make a difficult move during a time of social-distancing? Whatever the reason for your move, there's advice on how to best proceed online.
