Professional movers continue to operate during the global pandemic. But operations may differ by region, state, or even city. You may be surprised to find how accommodating professional moving companies are being during Covid-19. They are working tirelessly to abide by CDC guidelines to help you move safely and effectively. They have adjusted their protocol to include:
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Social Distancing
- Virtual Surveys and Quotes
- Extra Sanitizing Procedures
Can you Help Movers?
This article is focused on how movers are helpful during the global pandemic. But it still starts with you, the client. If you or someone in your home is experiencing symptoms of illness that align with coronavirus, please let your moving company know so that they can adjust their schedule. You wouldn’t want them around a sick person and then coming to your home. So be thoughtful of their other clients that they will interact with later in the day. If you are considered more likely to contract Covid-19–over the age of 60 and/or suffer from pre-existing conditions–consider postponing the move until a safer environment can be guaranteed.
Here are three other ways that you can easily help keep the moving process as clean as possible:
- Do not use recycled moving boxes.
- Provide sanitizer and masks to the moving crew.
- Finish packing 24 hours before movers come to avoid them needing to spend too much time indoors with you. (moving.com)
Don’t Hesitate to Hire Movers
- Movers are trained to lift heavy items.
- You may not have the option of taking off work right now, with jobs being scarce.
- Moving can be perfectly safe during Covid-19 as long as you hire a good moving company.
There is a high likelihood that you are not as strong as you were pre-Covid. Gyms remain closed for months, and most people spend more time indoors than ever before. Working from home keeps you glued to your office or couch. So, keep that in mind when you think you may be able to muscle up and move your furniture with the help of a friend. Trust the professionals to keep you safe by closely adhering to CDC guidelines and recommendations. And ask extensive questions during your virtual survey with your moving company until you feel comfortable. (Washingtonpost.com)
There may never be a convenient time to pack up your belongings and hit the road. But moving during a pandemic is particularly nerve-racking. So, trust the professionals to get the job done quickly, safely, and properly.
