Although the Coronavirus is attempting to disrupt daily life, one thing that it can’t disrupt is a move. However, it’s important to know how you can be safe while moving. Here are a few tips to consider.
1. You Can Still Hire Movers
While most of the country is promoting self-quarantining and social distancing, you can still hire movers in Doylestown. If you’re concerned about the virus being spread, then simply ask the movers to wear gloves and masks. Depending on what items are being moved, movers typically wear gloves, anyway.
If you are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, please let the movers know. It is important that we protect our crews from any exposure. The mover will work with you to reschedule for a later date.
Hiring movers is still the best way to make your move go fast and run efficiently. They can help you pack your things into a truck, deliver them, and help you unpack in a significantly shorter amount of time then if you were doing it on your own.
2. Sanitize Everything
It’s always good practice to clean after you move out of a home or apartment. It’s also a good way to help stop the spread of the infection. Besides sanitizing your old home, you’ll also want to sanitize the new home that you’re moving into. As soon as the boxes are unloaded into the house, break out your cleaning supplies.
Use household cleaners that will kill bacteria and viruses. Make sure that you sanitize light switches, door handles, and every other handle and switch that people have touched. You may not have tested positive for the Coronavirus, but those who lived in the house previously might have.
3. Pack Food
If you’re moving over a great distance, you’re likely going to need to stop for food. To practice social distancing, it might be a better decision to just pack some food from home. That way you can avoid fast-food restaurants and other traditional restaurants. It will also take up less time to travel. As soon as you finish your food, you can get back on the road.
Moving and Being Healthy
While a pandemic may be on the rise, that doesn’t mean you have to delay your plans to move. Practice these tips to move in a safe and sanitary way and hire our moving team to make it easier.
