Maintaining Social Distancing While Moving Homes or Offices


How to Stay Safe and follow Hygiene Practices during your move

The COVID-19 pandemic means that our normal lives have turned topsy-turvy. Our planned schedules have taken somewhat of a hit, and we have to now prioritise between which activities can run as per usual and which ones can take a backseat.

Moving home or office may be the last thing on some people’s minds in the current situation but it’s inescapable for others. If your lease is up, or you have no choice but to abide by the terms of the contract you signed, or for some other reason you must pack up and move, it’s imperative you maintain social distancing and hygiene while you’re moving out and/or moving in.

Oftentimes, moving houses/offices is not a task that can be done alone— it’s best left to professional Furniture Removalist who can get the job done quickly, professionally, safely and efficiently. Especially now, when health and safety is at the highest priority than ever, the less time you spend outside, the better.

Fortunately, in many areas, moving is still considered an essential service, and at AAA City Removalist (servicing Sydney NSW, Canberra ACT, and Interstate), we are determined to serve our customers to the best of our abilities in these difficult times. Moving services in Sydney are still up and running, and our employees take care to practice stringent social distancing etiquette, as well as hygiene as per our government’s guideline.

How to maintain social distancing during the moving process?

While our furniture movers and removalists are trained to adapt to such situations, it may be a confusing time to make a move from A to B. To make things easier, here are some basic tips to follow on a moving day:

  • Order new Packing boxes— Usually it’s a good idea to ring our office to arrange for free boxes to pack your stuff in, and we can have them delivered or you may pick them up contactless.
  • Virtual estimates— Go the extra mile to maintain distance between the removalist men and yourself by working out the Estimated Cost through our website. This way, no one needs to walk into your home to calculate the total cost of the move, when you can have an estimate via our site.
  • Maintain cleanliness— while our removalists are equipped with face masks, sanitisers and other tools necessary to maintain hygiene, it’s always a good idea to make sure you’re stocked up on hand sanitizers and have done your bit in keeping your house clean. Wipe down all surfaces, pack at least 24 to 48 hours in advance: the virus can survive on cardboard for up to 24 hours.

Needless to say, try your best to maintain 1.5 meter distance between yourself and the removalist at all times. Let our staff know well in advance if you or any of your family members are experiencing symptoms of the virus— especially if the area in question is a hotspot. Moving is a stressful task on its own.

Lastly, but by far the most important, let only experts handle the moving process. Apart from anything else, they have the means and the experience to adapt to the current situation, ensuring a safe move.

Being rated as the Best Removalist in Sydney, we care about our customers’ health which is our priority. We ensure that your move is seamless, safe, and trouble-free.
