When you hear that you are going to have to move, whether for a work relocation or personal, the thought automatically causes stress and a million questions. Questions of where to start, what to do, and what to not do come up like: “How Am I Going to move myself and family to a new place and stay safe?” (especially during a pandemic). Staying safe and being safe are the key factors that you should look for when deciding whether to move by yourself or use a professional moving company.
When Coronavirus (Covid-19) started, all of our locations got together to come up with a plan of action to keep everyone safe, including families relocating, drivers, crew, and all involved parties. Crews were minimized to keep with social distancing requirements and equipped with PPE kits of masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer that are replenished as needed.
When you are looking for a professional safe mover near where you live, always check their websites for their standard safety protocols and protocols during the Covid-19 pandemic. Some moving companies have multiple locations in different areas throughout the country. It’s always good to check out a company as a whole and not just because they are local to your current location or future location. You might find a local company that doesn’t have the same standards as a professional mover associated with a larger van line that is farther away. It is always best to do all the research to find the best safe mover out there.
Safety during a relocation, whether long-distance or locally, is always the most important factor for all people involved. Prior to your moving day make sure you are still feeling well and haven’t had any known contact with anyone that could be sick. If you need to postpone your move, just contact your movers immediately and they will discuss options for postponing and/or rescheduling for a later date. Your professional moving crew has daily check-ins as well. If at any point they are feeling ill or have a fever they are sent home to quarantine until a negative test comes back.
