Wearing proper protective equipment can help slow the spread of coronavirus, as well as benefit people who may not have symptoms from transmitting coronavirus to others. Our advice is always to wear your mask when interacting with movers and packers, and keep hand sanitizer close by. The CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to be effective in killing germs.
Ensure you place a hand washing or hand sanitizing station for movers at the main entrances of your home. Additionally, maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet of space between you and our our Atlanta full service movers. We also recommend wearing disposable gloves and proper protective eye wear if you deem necessary.
How to Be Prepared for Before & During Moving Day
Moving during coronavirus is overwhelming to say the least, but being prepared prior for the arrival of our Atlanta movers can help make it a smooth transition into your new home. Sanitize belongings as best you can and declutter your home of anything that will not be joining you in your new home.
Make sure you disinfect high traffic surfaces that are touched frequently, such as counters, light switches, doorknobs, chairs, handles, and faucets. Provide disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer for movers and packers to access frequently throughout the process of moving during coronavirus.
We also recommend being prepared for when your Atlanta movers arrive by leaving windows and doorways open to improve ventilation in the home and reduce the spread of cross infection. If your home has multiple bathrooms, don’t be afraid to limit the use to just one, and ask movers to follow your personal coronavirus protocols. Your safety is our priority!
