A moving process often involves advanced planning, careful packing, heavy lifting, and the help of many people, specialty equipment, and a truck that can fit all of the items. It’s a stressful and time-consuming process, and doing it during a pandemic is even more complex. 

If you need to move soon but are afraid of doing it during COVID-19, we will guide you so you can move safely. 

Maintaining precautions while packing, transporting items, and working with movers isn’t easy, therefore you must hire a trusted moving company that takes the necessary measures to keep you and your family safe. Here are some of the most common questions people have while moving in times of COVID-19.

Are Moving Companies Open During COVID-19?

Although many businesses remain close due to the COVID-19 outbreak, most moving companies are still open for business. You should research which moving companies are taking the necessary safety precautions and also have good reviews overall.

How Can I Minimize COVID Transmission Risk While Moving?

There are many ways you can make your relocation safer for you and your family. Here are some ideas:

Get a Virtual Estimate

Many moving companies are now offering virtual estimates to reduce COVID transmission risks.

Instead of having movers come to your home, call your moving company and see if they can provide you an estimate via Zoom, Facetime, or Skype. 

Disinfect Your Personal Belongings

Clean and disinfect all your belongings, moving equipment and other high-touch surfaces. The CDC recommends using household cleaners and disinfectants such as Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and  Lysol® Disinfectant Spray to clean surfaces.

Hire a Trusted Moving Company

Make sure to hire a professional moving company that is taking all the necessary precautions recommended by the CDC to minimize the risk of COVID transmission. These measures should include using gloves and masks, disinfecting all items and equipment, and practicing social distancing.
