Office Removals Post-Covid: Get Your Move Back On Track
Understandably, you may have decided to hold off on an office removal during lockdown restrictions. While moving house or office was one of the few permitted reasons to travel in the UK, with the worries surrounding the virus, many will have paused their plans to make the move. If this sounds like you, we’ve put a guide together on how to get your office removals back on track post-Covid.
Get Your Office Removals Back On Track
Be winter ready
With winter fast approaching, many will be concerned about the rising coronavirus cases in the UK and the potential return of some lockdown measures. To prepare for this, and stay safe, there are some precautions you can take:
- Wear a mask and use hand sanitiser when attending viewings and appointments
- You may want to choose a conveyancer and mortgage advisor who offers virtual appointments.
- Keep an eye out for the common symptoms of Covid. If you have symptoms, you should get a test and avoid attending any viewings or appointments until you receive a negative test result.
Choose remote appointments
More and more conveyancers, mortgage advisors and estate agents are offering remote-based appointments and virtual correspondence which can save you unnecessary trips. Some conveyancers also have their own app which shows you the progress of your case in real time, and is easily accessible anytime, anywhere. This efficient communication process shouldn’t mean a compromise on the quality of service you receive.
If you’re worried about a turbulent post-Covid property market, you can always opt for a conveyancer who offers a ‘no sale, no fee’ guarantee.
Don’t skip the viewing!
With the rise in remote viewings, it can be tempting to skip attending in person. However, when it comes to an office move, particularly if this is a big business move, it’s best to attend viewing in person. Video viewings are good, but they won’t necessarily show everything. Just remember your mask and hand sanitiser to minimise the risk of spreading or catching the virus.
Not sure this is a good time to move?
If you’re not sure if this is a good time to move, you can always get expert opinions from a mortgage advisor who can give you advice on the current property market and whether it’s an optimal time for you to buy or sell up.
Choose a post-Covid savvy removal company
We’re arguably entering a post-Covid era, but that doesn’t mean the virus can’t change plans at a moment’s notice. That’s why it’s important to choose a removal company that is flexible and that will take the safety of their team and your’s seriously.
