Tips For Moving During a Pandemic

As we know it, life has changed; a new normal is now to be expected in almost anything and everything we do in our daily lives. Moving is one of them. When relocating to a new home, additional action items are now added to your list to ensure you can move safely and efficiently while following necessary precautions. 

In this article, we’ll be sharing tips to keep in mind when moving during Covid-19, of which ensuring you choose the right moving company is critical. 

Tip #1 Routine Cleaning 

Hiring professional cleaners can help during your move to ensure all high-touch surfaces are well sanitized. However, you can also opt to do the cleaning yourself. Here are a few routine cleaning tips to follow before and during your move:

  • Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces; this can include tables, doorknobs, light fixtures, faucets, sinks, to name a few. 
  • Pay attention to safety instructions with cleaning products and ensure you’re using appropriate supplies. Also, keep in mind to increase ventilation by opening windows and doors to allow for fresh air to circulate when using chemical-based cleaning products. 

Tip #2 Maintain Social Distancing 

As your movers come in and out, you’ll want to ensure everyone continues to practice social distancing and refrain from getting in the way of one another. Let the movers do their job and keep household members apart to ensure a safe distance. 

Tip #3 Wash Hands 

Request your movers to wash their hands at regular intervals and use a designated washroom for the movers. Be sure to provide appropriate cleaning wipes and sanitizers at entrances and washrooms. 

Tip #4 Wear a Mask at All Times 

Wearing a face covering is recommended by the CDC to decrease the spread of Covid-19; with movers coming in and out of your home, it’s important to ensure your family members and the movers are wearing a mask at all times.
