Safe Interstate Move During Pandemic

The pandemic Covid-19 has created a lot of uncertainty in the lives of individuals and businesses. During the restrictions imposed due to lockdown, it became very difficult to accomplish our routine tasks or necessary work. However, moving and packing your office or house is already a demanding and challenging activity that becomes twice more puzzling during the outbreak of a pandemic.

Whether you are moving interstate or intrastate, you have to keep in mind the government protocols along with the restrictions imposed due to lockdown. Moreover, amidst the pandemic, you may be wondering if you should hire a professional removal team to move your belongings or make a DIY move to ensure safety and security. However, making an interstate move without a set of professional hands to help you may seem to be quite difficult. Therefore, we have researched some of the tips based on our experience as Pro Interstate Removalists, which we will unfold in this blog that will assist you in making an easy and stress-free interstate move during Covid-19.

The most important question you must consider before you begin your interstate move is to check with local government officials whether making a move is permitted in your area or not. You must also confirm the same from the officials of the area you are moving to. During the pandemic, many businesses and activities were temporarily ceased. Check whether the same restriction has been imposed on your move or not to avoid any inconvenience later.

The other thing to figure out is that if you need to move or your interstate relocation can be postponed for some time until everything falls back to normal. Contemplate delaying your move if you have the option, notably if you’re in a high-risk group. If you can’t reschedule your relocation but are worried about safety, moving with your vehicle or a rental truck may be an alternative, as far as you can lift and carry all of your goods. If you cannot postpone your move, take all the necessary measures to relocate safely.

  • Contemplate Taking A Virtual Moving Pricing Quote

Once you have shortlisted the moving crew for your house relocation, the next step is to ask for a moving quote. The list of safety measures begins with asking for a virtual moving quote. Instead of visiting the mover’s office, you can use the technology to show your possessions to be moved and ask for an online moving quote from your removal company. Try to open all the cabinets and closets where your belongings are stored and measure tape in case the removal team asks you to do so. This will give them a precise idea of how many items are to be moved and give them ease to provide you with the accurate moving quote.

  • Communicate With Your Movers Clearly

It is very important to talk with your moving team clearly to avoid bothering you later. It is very uncertain to predict anything for the future during the pandemic. Therefore, ask essential questions from your removing company, such as whether there will be any cancellation charges if you cancel or reschedule your move, what advance deposit they need, and how early you have to inform them about the rescheduling of the move, etc. Also, confirm from them about the safety and wellbeing of their staff members along with the safety protocols they would be following.

  • Follow The Safety Protocols With Your Removalists Team

Follow The Safety Protocols With Your Removalists Team

The most important aspect of moving during a pandemic is strictly adhering to safety protocols laid by the government officials to ensure the safety and security of yourself and your moving team. The first measure you can adopt is to greet your movers with a smile and not a handshake to make a contactless move.

Maintain social distancing and avoid assisting with the relocation while your movers load and unload your possessions. Keep the kids, pets, and sensitive family members in a separate place if you can. Ask your removalists to wash their hands at the entrance at regular  intervals throughout the day.

If you observe you’ve been infected with the virus or are experiencing symptoms before or during your relocation, call your mover for advice. It’s critical to sterilize and sanitize everything before bringing it in when you arrive. Then, place the things in the garage and gently wipe the packed boxes and bags.

If this isn’t an option, you must wait at least 24 hours before unpacking your belongings. Use face masks and gloves when unpacking, and wash your hands with soap afterwards. Throughout this Covid-19 outbreak, try not to contact your face, mouth, nose, eyes, ears, body, or any other area while moving.
