The Brief Guide to Moving Homes During the COVID-19 Lockdown

If you’ve recently decided that it’s time to move, don’t let the Coronavirus stop you from turning your dreams into reality. While there are many people who are greatly concerned about safely moving their homes during this pandemic, our moving company consists of many well-trained and knowledgeable movers who understand how to keep you and your family safe during this uncertain time.

That’s why today, we’ve created a complete guide to help you understand how you can go about moving homes safely during Covid-19.

Working With a Moving Company

Whether you’re planning on moving to Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire or any of the surrounding areas, you should consider working with a local removals company. A professional moving company will be experienced with moving valuable objects that are heavy or delicate to carry and difficult to move. Some of these items may include your TVs, sofa, bed and heavy boxes.

During this pandemic, you and your family can wear protective equipment such as gloves and face masks to reduce the chance of exposure. It’s also essential to make sure you’re all following a consistent hand-washing regime and social distancing, staying 2m apart from others at all times.

Find Online Quotes & Surveys

You can reduce the likelihood of exposing yourself to the Coronavirus even further by working with companies like Reads Removals to find online quotes. This can all be done within the comfort of your home and without any outside human contact.

You can also call companies in your area for an estimation of how much it would be to move the entirety of your home. This can be done by uploading a video survey of the belongings that you have to applications or sending in the video via email.

Once you send in a video or photographic evidence of the items that are within your home, a removals company will be able to provide you with a customised quote, without having to visit your home.

Organise Before the Movers Arrive

In normal circumstances, you’ll likely have already cleaned your home before the movers arrive. However, due to the added risk surrounding the virus, it would be a good idea to get yourself and your belongings organised in advance.

If you’ve already got your moving boxes, we would recommend having everything that you can pack by yourself packed away. This will eliminate the need to have the movers help you pack, which could increase the risk of spreading the virus.
