In light of recent events and to remain up to date with the government’s guidelines, it has become common practice to implement the following procedures to prevent the spread of the virus and to allow the industry to continue to operate, whilst staying alert.
Watch out for symptoms
Aside from fever, Covid-19 symptoms include cough, difficulty breathing, and fatigue.
Check your temperature before the day of the move. If you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms you must notify us immediately.
Before we arrive please clean around your house and wipe down all hand rails and door handles with disinfectant.
We will require all items to be packed prior to arrival to reduce physical contact with you and your goods as much as possible. Make sure to label each box appropriately i.e. fragile and room, and avoid packing essentials you will need on the day.
If possible to avoid further unnecessary handling, we ask that you make sure all furniture is dismantled prior to us arriving. This includes making sure electrical appliances are disconnected. It would be helpful also if you could mark or label items that are not to be moved.
Please open as many windows and doors to allow airflow and reduce the number of doors needing to be opened.
We understand you may want to supervise your move but to practice safe social distancing, in accordance with government guidelines, we ask you remain outside ideally or stay in one room to protect yourself and us. Please keep pets locked away in a separate room to avoid contact.
If possible, produce a floor plan for the new house of where you would like boxes and pieces of furniture to be roughly placed, to help us place your items in the appropriate rooms.
Under the PPE we are still your friendly local removal firm. We will do what we can to make your move as stress free as possible.
