Moving is a high-contact/hands-on activity. There’s no two ways about it. Cross country movers must pack boxes, lift furniture and transport belongings. In plain lingo: They’re going to have to touch your stuff.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the idea of a moving crew showing up at your home might seem at odds with shelter-at-home orders and social-distancing guidelines. In reality, it’s probably just the opposite. Hiring an interstate mover lessens your contact with others and helps safeguard you and your family.
How can that be?
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, 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).
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 ab out 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?
On top of our pledge to Make Moving Easy as a National Van Lines agent, we’re working hard to help protect your health and well-being. We’ve adopted CDC’s guidelines, including monitoring the health of our office employees, in-home estimators, drivers and moving crews.
