How do people move during the virus situation?

That would be awful. Our son bought his new house that hadn't been lived in for over 4 months. He looked at it virtually online, talked to an agent, had it sprayed professionally, and then rented a sanitized truck and moved a few things in from his place in NYC himself. He rented all brand new furniture and bought a few pieces. He and his wife thought everything out beforehand.

@Hannihar We moved back in 2015. My two sons moved everything here in a u-haul for us and put the stuff in a storage unit using our address as the code to get in, We figured out everything out ahead of time. We had the money to buy a new house with the sale of our old house. We left behind all of our furniture except our queen size bed. We even had the address of homes we wanted to buy. We had cash for the new home so we got in fast when we found a smaller home to buy.
@Alexandoy I was thinking about the cleaning part. I had someone cleaned where I used to live and someone to paint the apartment and that mean having to be not far from them to pay them. That was long before the virus, but now I really do not like to be near people.
@Adie04 They moved already and we were not friendly. I do not miss them, but, wondered how it was done. I have other things to take care of, but, since we have so much trouble with the bully above us I thought about it, but, so expensive. I have to get other things straightened out now.

My sister bought a house during the pandemic. She hired movers to move all her furniture into the home and all wear masks and gloves. She was very cautious and she sanitized everything and she also had all the carpeting steam-cleaned. She is fine.
