Tips on Moving Safely During COVID-19 Pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic is affecting everyone in different ways. While many people have had to adjust to remote work, others have been laid off or furloughed; many people have had to shelter in place and care for families while many parents have had to manage their school-aged children as well as their own jobs. It’s been difficult across the board, and though many projects and plans have been put on hold, other tasks such as moving are still necessary. Our professional Denver movers understand that there is a lot of uncertainty right now, but one thing you can be certain of is that we are taking all the necessary precautions to move our clients safely.
Tips for Moving Safely During Covid-19
Despite the changes the world is going through at the moment and the stress the population is under, our Denver residential movers are making sure that they follow the protocol set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure a safe relocation during the COVID-19 pandemic. It never hurts to be a little extra prepared, though, so here are a few tips for your peace of mind during your move.
Fresh, new packing supplies are best.
Though in the past you may have used packing supplies from your previous move, this is a time where you will want to spend the extra money on new packing supplies. Since the coronavirus can live on cardboard for up to a day, purchasing new moving boxes can ensure that you are moving safely during COVID-19. Our full-service moving company offers a variety of packing supplies in Denver to help get you started.
Finalize the details of your upcoming move
Since moving has been declared an essential service by the government, finding a moving service to help with your move should not be any harder than it usually is. However, we recommend making sure that the professional movers you want to hire are still accepting reservations during COVID-19. Be sure to ask what specific safety measures they have in place and if they need anything from you before the move to promote the safety of yourself, your family, as well as the moving crew.
All My Sons Moving & Storage Denver is taking all safety precautions very seriously. On the day of your move, we will send only as many movers as it takes to get the job done. Our moving crews will also use gloves and wear masks while handling your belongings.
Minimize contact when possible.
If there are items you can move on your own such as your clothes or fragile items, our local movers recommend doing so. Getting as many items out of your old home on your own is a great way to reduce the amount of time you will need to be around the movers.
Keep sanitizing products close by
Washing your hands is the number one way to keep yourself safe from the spread of the coronavirus. When planning your move to Denver, be sure that you have the proper sanitizing products close by. Hand sanitizer, Lysol wipes, and a fresh bottle of antibacterial hand soap are all great to keep handy during a move. Wear a mask and gloves during your move as well.
If you are not feeling well, do not move
If you or a family member is not feeling well or experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, it’s best and safest to either not be involved in the move at all and recruit someone from your family to oversee the process or to postpone the move altogether until you are cleared. Moving when you’re feeling under the weather, even with the proper protective equipment, can still put others and your movers at risk.
