So you’ve made the exciting decision to move homes! Just one problem, it’s the middle of a global pandemic. Worry not! Moving during the pandemic has been a common experience, and it can still be done safely and effectively. Here, our local moving team will answer your biggest questions about moving during the pandemic.
Your Top Questions
How Can I Minimize Contact During The Process?
Our local Calgary movers are happy to offer virtual surveys during our estimating process. This will allow you to stay in the comfort of your home, making the process quick and convenient.
How Do I Know My Move Is Being Handled Safely?
Rest assured knowing that hiring a professional moving company means your goods are being handled with the highest quality standards.
What Protocols Do Local Moving Companies Have In Place?
Local moving companies have strict COVID guidelines in place, including mask requirements and sickness protocols. Our movers won’t enter your home unless they’re in tip-top shape. Additionally, there is frequent hand washing and sanitizing in place to lessen the risk of transmission.
What Should I Do During The Move?
We’re masking up, and we ask that you do too! During the moving process, please keep social distancing from our movers, and reduce contact as much as possible. Keep some soap and sanitizer by sinks for easy handwashing for everyone. Other than that, sit back and relax as our expert local movers do the job!
What Supplies Do I Need?
If you’ve hired a local moving company for a full service move (including packing), all you’ll need is a mask and hand sanitizer. If you’re packing yourself, make sure you pick up moving supplies such as boxes, bubble wrap, tape, and markers from your local movers for the packing process.
How Should I Clean My New Home?
Evidence has shown the virus can last for up to 72 hours on certain surfaces, so you’ll want to either let your items rest for a few days or give everything a good clean. Normal household cleaners have been shown to kill the virus, so a thorough wipe down should do the trick. If you’re looking for a more in-depth clean, consider hiring a cleaning service to clean your new house top to bottom, making it move-in ready, and giving you peace of mind.
