If you are moving during the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably have a lot on your mind. If you do not have the ability to wait until the situation changes, then it is time to create a game plan to keep you from making any potential mistakes. Check out these tips to prevent spreading or catching the Coronavirus during your moving process.
Communicate with Movers
If you are planning to hire a moving company, you will want to find out what their policy is in and how things have been modified to avoid any health risks. Since the virus is known to spread through person-to-person contact, it would be great to know how many people you will be working with and if they will be wearing any gear to protect themselves as they move throughout your home.
Even if you do have movers helping you, it is still important to protect yourself and those around you by wearing masks and gloves. Taking this extra step while maintaining a safe distance of at least six feet will prevent the spreading of any germs.
Use Your Own Supplies
While it may be tempting to borrow boxes and supplies from neighbors and friends, it is best to stay on the safe side and stick to your own belongings. By using items from other people, you run the risk of spreading germs from different surfaces. Avoid this problem altogether by finding out where to get new boxes and supplies.
Get a Self Storage Unit
For those who have to move out of their home quickly, consider getting a storage unit. This is a great quick solution to move your belongings out of your old home and get them ready for their new home, or to stay in the unit where they are.
