Moving is a part of life. There is nothing more exciting than moving to a new place, whether it is an office space or a new residential space. Every individual, at some point in their life, has relocated to a new space. That said, whether you move regularly or a novice player in this game, we all know moving can be a rather stressful and tiresome experience. With the rise of the pandemic, the situation has only worsened, making it unpleasant for many people who seek to move. We recognize this issue and so bring to you hacks to ensure a contact-free experience during relocation.
Pack by Yourself
While you can leave the heavy-duty packing to the experts, we recommend packing most of your items by yourself. This way, you are assured of safe packing and moving experience. Alternatively, you could ask the moving company to wear gloves during the process, therefore preventing the virus’s spread.
Clean as You Pack
Disinfecting every item as you pack them is another way to go to ensure the safety of you and your belongings. If the kids are helping you pack, ensure they sanitize or wash their hands at regular intervals.
Conduct a Video Call with the Movers
If you decide to hire movers, you need to minimize human contact as much as possible. Simultaneously, the people conducting the relocation need to know which items need to be moved and which ones need to be left behind. Therefore, you need to inform them which personal belongings you need. For contactless preparation, you can conduct video walk-throughs to evaluate which items need to be moved. Ensure to give all the instructions in the video. Engaging with the best relocating service providers can help to make the entire moving process contactless.
Deep Clean Your New Home
After arriving at your new place, be sure to do a thorough cleaning and sanitize all the rooms before moving in with your belongings. Conduct deep cleaning, especially on the most-touched surfaces such as doorknobs, cabinet handles, fridge, and sinks. It is also crucial to disinfect the sofas and mattresses which come in most contact during relocation.
Confirm If Movers Are Allowed into the Building
Some building owners may not allow outsiders to enter the premises due to the virus. So, it is best to check with the building before calling the team. If they don’t permit entry, you can have the team place the items near your building entrance and ask for assistance in moving your belongings to your new home.
