Safely Move House With Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19)
You can consider this as good news that the movement within the current city, town, and territory is possible with certain restrictions. Thus you should consult a reputable and reliable moving company to help you with your moving. The logistics and transport services are currently exempted from certain kinds of restrictions and have desired knowledge about the rules and guidelines of different state governments. And also follow all imposed rules and regulations to prevent the spread of this virus.
Pro Removalists Adelaide has compiled some of the guidelines that will help you safely move houses with Covid-19.
Step 1: Go Through The State And Territory Restrictions And Guidelines
It is generally advised to postpone all house moves till the situation gets normal. You can change your moving date till restrictions are lifted or normalized. But it is not always feasible because of contractual obligations. Moving house within town or state is still allowed in this situation. Every territory or state is following its own set of regulations to stop the spread of the coronavirus. And also following some additional restrictions depending on the situation. We have included some useful resource links at the end of this blog that will give you an idea about the restrictions imposed in the state regarding movement and other things.
Professional removal companies such as Pro Removalists Adelaide belong to the logistic and transport department. And we are currently free from all types of restrictions for operating local, regional and interstate relocation. But this exemption is not applicable to general individuals. This is because we constantly check the guidelines of the Government associated with COVID-19 and then start our move.
Step 2: Consult Professional Moving Experts, Pro Removalists Adelaide
Moving services have been categorized as essential services, and thus expert movers are exempted from most of the restrictions imposed on travelling. Therefore it is advised to go with a professional moving company like Pro Removalists Adelaide, who have all information about the latest guidelines and restrictions. We are updated with the latest restriction information, but we also follow all the safety measures required during this pandemic situation. Therefore, we assure that every one of the customer families and our moving team remains safe during the relocation process.
We recommend you to keep in touch with us if you have already booked to move with us. So that we can inform you if there is something you need to know or have to implement at the time of moving. We also rescheduled the move either you informed us a few weeks ago or on short notice. All that we want is that you, your family and our moving experts remain safe from this dangerous virus.
Step 3: Disconnect Old Services And Connect New One
Before the final date of your move, you should discuss with your service provider about the current services and ask them to offer the new connection to the new place. During the coronavirus period, most of the service providers companies offering essential services work with half staff or short working hours. Because of that, it will become convenient for you and your service provider to inform them as early as possible so that they can start their work accordingly. Performing this activity in advance gives them the maximum opportunity to check out all the conditions. If essential services connection can’t be done at that time, then you can think about rescheduling due to limited working. Every single industry has been affected by this virus outbreak, either indirectly or indirectly. So you should not assume that you will get everything in the same way as you were getting previously.
Step 4: Arrange Packing Boxes And Materials
Health should be one’s priority and, most importantly, in this pandemic time. Covid-19 has several aspects, and still, experts do not have complete knowledge about every aspect. There is no proven result of the duration of the virus on different types of surfaces. Keeping this point in mind, you should buy new packing materials and boxes that are untouched and discard using the old and recycled boxes. This point should be given weightage for both DIY moving and professional moving. Pro Removalists Adelaide always uses the best quality and untouched packing materials and boxes for packing belongings. Our expert packers pack every object, either it is large TV appliances, clothes or any fragile item, with complete perfection. We follow all guidelines to stop the spread of coronavirus and use contamination-free packing materials.
Step 5: Pack All Belongings
You can check out our moving house checklist for packing all your home belongings, and you will find this resource useful. This checklist will remind you of all important points and help you in packing every object correctly. You will not forget the crucial steps that are very much required for the relaxed and stress-free move. We also have a useful resource that will help you if you are living on rent then what point you have to consider while leaving that property.
If you have decided to pack all your belongings by yourself, you should carefully label each box so that no inconvenience should be caused and also desired boxes should be handled with care. It will help you from undesired circumstances. On the other hand, if you hire professional removalists, they will pack every object with complete perfection. It will not only save your time but also save you from undesired stress.
Step 6: Final Move Day
Interaction with other individuals should be reduced in the current time. But while making less physical interaction with our customers, we still maintain to offer the award-winning service. We have made some small changes to greet our customers while considering the coronavirus. Now our moving experts don’t do handshakes and maintain proper described distance throughout the relocation process. Our Adelaide removalists wear personal protective equipment (face mask and hand gloves) and sanitize their hand after and before touching any object.
Some Other Useful Tips You Can Follow (Although They Are Not Compulsory):
- Restrict the number of individuals inside the house on the final moving day. One responsible person, along with our professional mover, can stay.
- Using own pen and paper for completing the documentation process.
- Allowing our removalists to use a separate washroom for washing hands on a regular basis till they are at your place.
- Store all packed boxes in a single room that is near your home entrance. This will speed up the moving process and restrict unnecessary movement inside the home.
- Deliver the floor plan of your new home to our removalists so that we get an idea of where boxes have to be kept. Or you can tape off the area in your new home where boxes need to be stored after unloading from the moving truck.
These all points are described just only to make your move easier and safer. None of the points are essential for completing the house move during COVID-19.
