TOP 10 MARATHON MOVING TIPS TO MOVING DURING COVID
Moving can be stressful, even in the best of situations. Add COVID-19 to the mix and you may have new concerns, questions, and worries that didn't cross your mind before the pandemic. Can you move during COVID-19? Yes. Yes! Marathon Moving Co. is considered essential and will move you safely following CDC guidelines.
Tip #1 Communication is key
Clear communication about your expectations regarding safety precautions is important whether you hire Marathon Moving professional movers or family members to assist with your move. You can talk to them about keeping a safe distance and wearing the proper PPE, as well as following safety guidelines. Marathon Moving has you covered in this area if you're moving with us! Find out more about the safety and health of our clients, employees and partners.
Tip #2: Declutter again, declutter, and declutter again
Before you begin the move, determine whether your items should be donated, moved or tossed. This will reduce the number of items that need to be moved and help you save time and money. Do you need some assistance? We can help! These ten questions will help determine if an item is really needed or if it should be discarded before you move.
Tip 3: Sanitize and Disinfect
Ask your Marathon Moving company for their sanitation guidelines. Ask your moving company about their sanitation guidelines. Make sure they are diligent about cleaning out trucks and other moving equipment. And while you're at that, be as careful about cleanliness. Reusing old boxes can lead to spreading of the virus. It is better to buy new moving boxes than reuse them.
Tip #4: Sign documents electronically and get a virtual moving estimate
Marathon Moving is one of many moving companies. Many moving companies (including Marathon Moving!) offer customers the opportunity to get a virtual quote and sign paper electronically. This reduces the spread of germs and can be done from your own home. You may even wish to have your future estimates delivered electronically once the pandemic has ended. Get a free virtual estimate from Marathon Moving or learn more about our virtual survey tool.
Tip #5 - Keep it Essential for Move Day
Moving day can be both exciting and stressful. You may need to have family and friends with you to share the excitement. We recommend that only those who are essential for the move be present on the big day. This will allow you to keep a safe distance from your friends and family, as well as limiting distractions that can cause your move to take too long. The process will be easier and safer if you limit the number of people involved.
Tip #6: Wear Proper PPE
It is important that everyone present at move-day wears proper PPE. This includes gloves and masks. This will ensure everyone is safe and healthy on move day.
Tip #7 - Pack efficiently
Moving is safer and easier when you reduce the amount of boxes and other moving supplies required. Label each box with the contents. This will help you with all phases of your move. Imagine how much easier it will be to unpack when you know where each box belongs!
Tip #8 - Look into Contactless Moving Services
For those who prefer it that way, moving containers can be used to provide a non-contact move. We would be delighted to provide more information about this option. To learn more, please fill out the contact form or call us at 781-300-3200.
Tip #9 - Discuss the Closing Process With Your Realtor
Discuss with your realtor how COVID will affect the closing process. Many agencies offer curbside signing and even virtual closings. Talk to your realtor about electronic signing, just like the movers.
Tip #10 - Unpack Carefully
Once it's time for unpacking, take the same care as when you packed. Before unpacking, clean your home. Also disinfect any items that you take out of the boxes. As an added precaution, you can also wear gloves.
