Tips For Moving During The Covid-19 Pandemic:
The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges for people in all aspects of life, including moving. While it is possible to move during this time, it is important to take extra precautions to ensure that you and your family stay safe and healthy. In this blog post, we will provide some tips and precautions to help you move during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Use virtual surveys and estimates
Many moving companies now offer virtual surveys and estimates, which allow you to get a quote without having to have a representative from the moving company come to your home. This can help minimize contact and reduce the risk of exposure to the virus.
Clean and disinfect your belongings
Before your move, take the time to clean and disinfect your belongings, especially high-touch items such as furniture, electronics, and appliances. This will help reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to your new home.
Provide protective gear for your moving crew
When you hire a moving company, make sure to provide them with protective gear such as masks and gloves. This will help protect them from exposure to the virus while they are working in your home.
Limit the number of people in your home
During your move, try to limit the number of people in your home as much as possible. If you have friends or family helping you move, consider having them wear masks and practice social distancing.
Practice social distancing
While it may be difficult to maintain social distancing during a move, it is important to try to keep a safe distance from others whenever possible. This means avoiding handshakes or other physical contact, and staying at least six feet away from others.
Use contactless payment methods
To minimize contact during your move, try to use contactless payment methods such as credit cards or online payment systems. This will help reduce the risk of exposure to the virus.
Consider a self-service move
If you are comfortable with it, you may want to consider a self-service move, where you do the packing and loading yourself and the moving company simply transports your belongings. This can help reduce the number of people in your home and limit contact with others.
Be prepared for delays
Due to the pandemic, there may be delays or other challenges associated with your move. Be prepared for these possibilities and try to be flexible in your plans.
Follow CDC guidelines
Finally, it is important to follow the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding COVID-19. This includes wearing masks, washing your hands frequently, and practicing social distancing whenever possible.
In conclusion, while moving during the COVID-19 pandemic can be challenging, it is still possible to do so safely and responsibly. By taking the proper precautions and following the guidelines set forth by health experts, you can minimize the risk of exposure to the virus and ensure a safe and healthy move.
