6 Tips for Moving During a Pandemic
By GoodGreekMoving

Many people have wondered whether they can move their home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some worry just thinking about trying to move at this time. However, it’s safe to make a move if both you and your mover follow certain rules.

The key is finding a professional mover who will meet your criteria for a “safe” moving company during the pandemic. You still have many choices as movers remained an essential service during the lockdowns and are expected to continue to be so going forward. The question is: can you find one that meets high standards for safety?

Finding that out is the first step in moving during a pandemic.

Vet Your Movers

The first and most important tip is to hire a moving company that has the professional services you need and who commit to safe and secure moves. You want a company that cleans all trucks and equipment before and after each move. That takes the worry out of a move for you and ensures both you and your belongings are safe.

Beyond this first, important consideration, here are some other factors to keep in mind for your move.

Talk With Your Movers

After you pick a mover, talk with them in detail about your move. Ask them how they will provide clean trucks and moving equipment, as well as any details on safety procedures for employees (wearing masks, hand sanitizer, etc.). Just as importantly: ask them what they recommend you should do to make the move as safe as possible.

Practice Social Distancing

If you use movers, it’s best (for them and you) to practice social distancing. They have the training and tools to efficiently move your belongings. At some point, it’s best to maintain six feet of distance and let them do their job. For added safety, consider wearing a mask during the move.

Do Your Packing and Unpacking

The best moving companies will both pack and unpack your belongings. However, if you are concerned about others handling your items because of the pandemic, an option is to do your own packing and unpacking.

Make Use of Storage

Storage facilities are kept clean and sterile. They offer another option for you, giving you a place to store your belongings until you are ready to move them to your new home. That way, you know they are safe, and you will minimize what you must unpack.

Delay The Move If Feeling Sick

If you or anyone in your family develop any symptoms related to COVID-19, the best thing to do is delay your move until you are cleared by a health professional. That way, you will protect the safety of anyone involved in your move. Get tested as soon as possible and isolate yourself until you are virus-free.

Like many activities right now, moving is safe if you follow the rules of the “new normal” brought about by the virus. While temporary, this time requires people to take extra steps to ensure their safety. Make sure to hire a professional moving company that does the same, and you can still have a largely stress-free move, even during the pandemic.
