Moving During COVID-19

Living through the COVID-19 pandemic is one thing, but to relocate to a new home is a whole new territory. One certainty is you must be staying protected to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other sudden illness. When moving during COVID-19, make sure you educate yourself and are staying up to date on all health and safety information.

Whether you are moving down the street with the help of our local Portland movers or transferring to a new zip code with our Portland long-distance movers, prevent the spread of COVID-19 by staying sanitized while moving. Here are a few tips to help you stay safe and healthy on your upcoming adventure.

Practice Social Distancing When Moving

One of the best ways to stay sanitized while moving is to practice social distancing. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC has encouraged citizens to keep ample space between yourself and others. Implement the 6-feet rule into your life, and you are sure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Our moving company in Portland is practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet apart from our customers and employees in hopes of flattening the curve. Moving during COVID-19 is safe only when you follow the proper health and safety guidelines, like social distancing and wearing a face mask.

Disinfect All Areas

It’s crucial to make sure you are disinfecting your current home and your new one once you arrive and after your Portland movers leave. Gather any disinfecting products you can get your hands on and apply to all surfaces, especially common areas. If you are unable to find disinfecting products, you can create your own solution with bleach and water. Before and after your move, apply the disinfectant to doorknobs, furniture, countertops, and other areas that are frequently touched.

Wash, Wash, Wash!

One of the most vital tips for staying sanitized while moving during COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently. While having soap and water readily available is unrealistic, you must try to wash your hands regularly. Try to get your hands on a bottle of hand sanitizer to kill off any germs while you are on the move. Choose a hand sanitizer or make your own that contains 60% alcohol or more. Whenever you use the restroom, pick up a dirty moving box, pumping gas, picking up food, and more, remember to use your handy dandy sanitizer or hand soap with water.

Don’t cancel your upcoming move! Stay sanitized while moving with our movers in Portland. Our Portland storage company is here to provide you with the highest quality storage solutions and moving services. Follow our helpful tips to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during your relocation. At Redefyne Moving, we are doing our part to flatten the curve and encourage you to follow in our footsteps (6 feet away, mind you). Are you looking to have a safe move?

Corry and Brendan did my move and they were great! Super quick and efficient. They handled all the stairs like champs and didn’t complain once. Very communicative and reliable. Redefyne was by far the best choice I could have made.

Redefyne helped me with move-in labor in my new apartment, with three flights of stairs as the only means of access. They were prompt, professional, courteous and time-conscious. I was so happy with their services I happily recommended them to my boss at work, and would also do so for friends and family.

Everything about this experience was amazing. They made me feel at ease and took on a very big task with our house. They were kind and wonderful to my children and understanding when I was dealing with a move and three kids. They took time to get to know my children and were very professional. I really enjoyed working with these guys.
