We have all had to adapt to this “new normal” that COVID 19 has brought about but moving during this time brings a whole new set of challenges and we are here to help you navigate those waters.
Step 1: Do as much as you can on your own but if you need help do your homework on the companies in your area. Ask about their sanitation procedures, and make sure that the movers are required to wear masks, gloves, and booties. Also, regardless of whether there is a pandemic make sure that the company you choose has a reasonable cancelation policy in case your plans change!
Step 2: Minimize your contact. See if the company you choose will do virtual quotes or if they offer fully contactless service. Need to tip the movers? See beforehand if they accept Venmo, PayPal, or another form of contactless tipping.
Step 3: Take extra sanitary precautions by wearing masks and gloves yourself, disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched especially doorknobs and handles. Lastly to lighten your move load and help those in need during this pandemic donate your shelf stable items to a local food bank!
Moving is hard no matter what, but adding a pandemic on top of it makes it extra challenging right now, but just do the best you can and know you can do this!
