How To Safely Move During COVID-19

Times are changing. Things that once seemed easy now seem impossible, and things were  once stressful are causing even more strain. Moving houses is definitely part of the latter. Though it’s more complicated than before, moving during a pandemic can be done. Here’s our guide to doing it safely:

Plan, Plan, Plan

Planning is the epicentre of all moves. Without a fool-proof, well thought out plan, your move may fall apart at the seams. From buying supplies to renting trucks, every detail must be accounted for.

The best way to avoid any mishaps is by creating a safety net. This means buying more supplies than you think you need, booking your moving company ahead of time or renting your truck long before you need it, confirming your moving party (if friends are helping you out) and setting a date way in advance. Keep a list and update it regularly to help ease the process.

Mask On

It might seem like a hindrance at first, but wearing a mask is crucial. Moving is tiring work, and heavy lifting leads to people getting winded and trying to catch their breath, spreading germs and particles everywhere. Wear a mask and try to maintain a safe distance from everyone involved.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat

Moving Day can get messy. Hand sanitizer is a must, but don’t pack up your antibacterial soap before your move is done. Your moving party may need to use the washroom, but everyone should be washing their hands more frequently to stay safe.

In the days leading up to your move, stock up on bottles of hand sanitizer. It’s a good idea to keep some at the entrance, in your car, rental truck, and even your pocket.

Take It Easy

Everything is harder during a pandemic and some things are better left to the professionals. Hiring a moving team can give you peace of mind and ensure that everything goes smoothly.
