What To Know If You Are Moving During COVID-19 Quarantine

Even though the novel coronavirus puts the whole world on pause, some people still need to relocate. You might have dozens of questions about moving during quarantine, and we will try to answer the most popular ones.

Does Moving Business Operate?

Yes, though it may vary from state to state, and even from city to city, moving business is considered as “essential” in most places. Chicago Movers Near Me is operating, making sure your relocation is done according to the current recommendations.

Postpone Your Move If Possible

If your relocation is not fixed-dated and not urgent, consider postponing it to after-quarantine time. The isolation itself seems to be the best virus spread prevention, and avoiding a moving right now would be another safe option. But if you can’t change the date, if it’s your rent is about to over, or any other pressing issue which leaves you no choice but to move, there are still ways to implement it properly and safely for you and those who will help you move.

Use Only New Packing Supplies

According to AMSA (American Moving and Storage Association), it’s safer to use the new boxes now. As it’s known from other resources, the virus can live up to 24 hours on cardboard, which makes reusing boxes dangerous for you and the movers. You can order your packing kit on our website at any moment.

Finish packing at least 24 hours before the movers arrive

For the same reason as mentioned before, to prevent possible virus transmission, ensure you finish packing a day before movers arrive at your house. If you have disinfection spray, you can use it to sanitize the boxes.

Clean Your House While Packing  

As an additional precaution, you can disinfect the furniture and house surfaces while preparing for your relocation. It may be not only useful but helpful to keep you and your family from the virus.

Prepare Your House For Movers

If you have extra sanitizers, you can leave them for movers. If not, preparing soap and a sink would be useful as well.
