Our Procedures Protect You During the Pandemic
The activities surrounding moving are high-contact/hands-on. There’s no way to 100% avoid that. Interstate movers must transport belongings, pack up boxes and lift furniture. Stated in plain English: These professionals will need to touch your possessions.
During this unprecedented time, the thought of a moving crew ringing your doorbell and stepping inside your home might seem contradictory to shelter-at-home orders and social-distancing recommendations. The reality, however, is it’s most likely the exact opposite. Hiring a professional mover decreases your contact with others and helps protect your family and you.
How is that possible?
A DIY move forces you to personally purchase packing paper, buy boxes and rent a truck. These activities increase the chances you’ll encounter contagious individuals and COVID-contaminated materials. Plus, you risk passing that exposure to friends and family who want to help you move for just the price of pizza and beverages.
But if you hire a Professional Moving & Storage , you not only lessen your physical burden, you leave packing, loading and unloading to relocation professionals trained to wear masks, use gloves, practice state-of-the-art hygiene and properly store materials, such as cardboard shipping boxes (capable of carrying coronavirus contamination for up to 24 hours).
Safely secured in your home until moving day, you’ve protected your family from unneeded risk. Also follow these tips so you know what to expect on moving day.
Contain the coronavirus
How do you know national moving companies are adhering to the current coronavirus-containing federal guidelines? Are all cross country moving companies practicing safe-moving techniques by following preventive practices as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?
Search a company’s website, Facebook posts and tweets. Do they contain info about what steps that company has taken to protect you? Do their photos show drivers and moving-crew members masked and gloved? Is the company ready and willing to answer your safety questions?
Professional Moving & Storage is working hard to help protect your health and well-being. We’ve adopted CDC’s guidelines, including monitoring the health of our office employees, in-home estimators, drivers and moving crews. If you choose to use our vehicle-relocation services, we’re COVID-conscious about cleaning your car, van or SUV.
Making moving easy
Until recently, it wasn’t unusual for an in-home estimator to visit your home to calculate how much your move across country would cost. Now, the National Van Lines online virtual survey system means no cost-of-moving estimators need visit your home. That’s not only convenient, it’s safe. Prefer a live person on the line? You can FaceTime with one of our experts in real time.
