Boylin’s Top Tips and Advice for Safely Moving House During Covid-19 - Social Distancing and Hand Washing.

Social Distancing, Face Masks and Hand Washing!

3. Social Distancing and Hand Washing.

Social distancing is crucial for preventing the spread of contagious illnesses such as Covid-19. Covid-19 can spread through coughing, sneezing and close contact. By minimizing the amount of close contact we have with others, we reduce our chances of catching the virus and spreading it to our loved ones and within our community.

Therefore, during your moving process try to stay as far away from your movers as you can (at least 6ft) and avoid handshakes.

It’s also best to ensure crew members can easily wash their hands if they request to do so. And wash your hands regularly as well. It is a good idea to have hand sanitizer readily available as well if you are in between locations and therefore without a sink to wash your hands.

Ensure that everyone involved, both your family and the movers wear face masks to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

4. Cleaning Your New Property.

When you arrive at your new property, we suggest that you disinfect each room in order to ensure that your move is as safe as possible.

As well as cleaning every room, it is crucial to clean and disinfect all your possessions as you unload to kill any germs that may reside upon your items. These germs could else contaminate your new home.

While all of your movers will have used PPE, ensuring all items are cleaned will help to further protect everyone living in your home.

5. Make Use of a Self Storage Unit!

Our top tip for moving during Covid-19 is to make use of a Self Storage Unit in order to decrease your stress and improve your move.

By placing your belongings in a self storage unit you will make your moving process so much easier.

For example, you could place your belongings in your self storage unit 3 days before your movers pick them up, this will ensure that your belongings do not have any germs on them as Covid-19 germs die on most surfaces after 3 days. This would help to prevent the spread of Covid-19 making your move Covid-19 safe. It will also eradicate the need for the movers to enter your previous home and potentially spread or contract Covid-19 within your previous home.

Moreover, by using a storage unit you can move incrementally, in stages, rather than all at once which can be draining, stressful and overwhelming. You could have your movers move the large bulky items such as furniture and kitchen goods, and leave smaller items that you can move yourself in self storage until the hubbub and movers are out of the way. Then you can safely move these items yourself, contact free.

Furthermore by placing your belongings in storage during your move, you can make your move so much more organised as items will be boxed up and labelled for the movers rather than scattered sporadically around the house.
