Moving in general can be stressful. Moving during coronavirus can feel even worse! At Excel Moving & Storage we are taking the pandemic situation very seriously and are committed to protecting our customers and moving teams. Here are 10 safety tips for moving at this time.

  1. Choose safe movers – most moving companies are practicing social distancing and sanitizing. Check with your moving company to make sure that they are.
  2. Get a virtual move quote– many moving companies have started using virtual moving technology to prevent unnecessary contact.
  3. Check about a rescheduling policy – if anyone in your home should fall ill, you will want to know that you won’t get a fee for needing to reschedule.
  4. Clean & disinfect– sanitize your home as you are packing. Be sure to clean door knobs and countertops on moving day.
  5. Don’t shake, smile– avoid physical contact of any sort.
  6. Social distance– maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from your moving crew at all times.
  7. Offer a handwashing station – giving movers access to a sink and soap will limit the spread of germs.
  8. Wear a mask– masks offer an extra layer of protection if you need to be around other people.
  9. Sanitize your new home – before unpacking, make sure to clean off surfaces from whoever may have been there before you.
  10. Don’t stress – this may be a strange time for all of us, but communication and cooperation will make moving day go by more smoothly.
