Moving Services During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Professional Advice for Moving Services in Brighton, CO & Colorado Springs, CO During the Coronavirus Pandemic
With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, moving companies and moving and storage services are an essential business. By practicing social distancing and safe disinfecting measures, moving companies, residential, and commercial movers are facing the challenges of this trying time while working to give their clients dependable and safe moving services.
- Contact Your Movers - Call your movers ahead of time to ask about any changes to their moving services and new safety measures against the coronavirus. Confirm your reservation and tell them if anyone in your family or company has been sick recently.
- Cancel, If Needed, Keep the Appointment if You Can - If you are at high-risk for the coronavirus due to age or a preexisting condition, it is recommended to cancel or change your moving date. But, if your lease has ended, the closing date is fixed, and more, the move must go on, and that is why moving companies are essential businesses.
- Stay Informed, Stay Safe - The coronavirus can exist on surfaces such as cardboard for up to twenty-four hours. So, pack ahead of time and leave the boxes untouched for twenty-four hours to lessen any risk for the movers. As you pack, disinfect your belongings with CDC approved products such as Lysol or Clorox. If you do not have those, you can mix one tablespoon of bleach with a gallon of water to clean instead. In the case of contamination, do not use recycled or used boxes for packing.
- Protect Your Movers - For the moving day, leave out soap, paper towels, hand sanitizer, and more for your movers to use. To practice safe social distancing, stay off the property during the move and let the movers handle the job.
If you are moving, plan accordingly because you will not have the help of friends or family who does not live in your home due to social distancing guidelines. Vans for moves are still rentable but will be disinfected between every move, and you will have to call in your reservation. But, it always better to leave the moving to professional movers, so call to see if you are able to book moving companies ahead of time.
As always, your movers will do their best despite these new challenges to provide clients with efficient moving services. Communicate and disinfect as much as possible to have a safe and secure move.
