Moving—whether local, within the state or across the country—is a hands-on/high-contact process. It’s unavoidable: Cross country movers will have to pack boxes, lift furniture and transport belongings. In plain English, the driver and his crew will have to touch your stuff.
During the pandemic, thinking about a moving crew appearing at your front door might seem contrary to social-distancing guidelines or shelter-at-home orders. However, the reality is the situations probably is exactly the opposite. Hiring professional movers lessens your contact with others and helps safeguard your family.
How is that possible?
Safe and sound
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 member of the National Van Lines family of interstate-moving agents, such as Lee’s Moving, 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). That way, you know what to expect on moving day—whether that BIG day takes place during fall, winter, spring or summer.
Safely tucked away in your home until moving day, you’ve protected yourself and your family from unneeded pandemic risk.
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 pandemic 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?
