At Denver moving services, we're committed to ensuring that you have all of the information that you need for a smooth and stress-free moving experience. And with social distancing due to COVID-19 still in effect, we know that you have a lot of questions about how moving works right now—and whether you can move at all. So to help you out, we've answered some of your most frequently asked questions about moving and COVID-19.

1-What is COVID-19?

According to the World Health Organization, "COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019."

COVID-19 is not the first coronavirus, but rather a new strain in an existing group of coronaviruses that can circulate among both animals and humans. It is highly contagious and spreads from person-to-person through droplets from the nose or mouth, which is why social distancing measures are so important. As of the date of publication, there have been more than 525,000 cases of COVID-19 in the United States and more than 20,000 deaths.

2. Is Moving an Essential Service?

3. What is Social Distancing?

Social distancing, also referred to as "physical distancing," is one of the best defenses that we have against the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines proper social distancing measures as requiring that you:

  • - Stay six feet away from other people, aside from those who you live with
  • - Do not gather in groups
  • - Avoid mass gatherings and crowded areas

Limiting close contact with those outside of your immediate household mitigates the risk of coming into contact with COVID-19 droplets. These measures are particularly important in light of the fact that many carriers of COVID-19 are asymptomatic, meaning that they are carrying—and potentially spreading—the virus without awareness that they have it.

4. Should I Move During COVID-19?

Sometimes a move is unavoidable. However, if you have any flexibility in your moving date, you are better off waiting to relocate until social distancing measures have been lifted. If you do not have flexibility, the next best thing that you can do is to work closely with your moving provider to learn what they are doing—and what you should do—to ensure the safest move possible.

Health and safety are always a top priority. If you are in a high-risk group, including those with pre-existing conditions like diabetes and asthma or those who are over the age of 60, consider postponing your move if you can or finding an alternate means of moving, such as using your own vehicle or renting a moving truck.

5. Does Someone Have To Come Into My Home to Provide a Moving Quote?

No. Denver moving services are now offering virtual surveys instead of at-home surveys to provide you with a price estimate for your move.

6. I Have An Upcoming Move, Is It Still Happening?

If you have an upcoming move scheduled assume that it is still happening unless you have heard from us otherwise. That being said, it is still a good idea to call and confirm the status of your move.

7. Can I Cancel or Postpone My Upcoming Move?

Yes. If you have made the decision to cancel or postpone your move, you should have no trouble doing so.

8. I'm Not Feeling Well, What Should I Do?

The first thing that you should do in regards to your move is notify us. It's crucial that we know about the potential risk for our workforce so that we can adjust the sanitization and social distancing measures we have already put in force.

Your health and safety as well as the health and safety of our movers are the top priority. Transparency is very important for keeping everybody safe, and in many cases, our movers will still work with you. In addition to letting us know if you suspect the illness among yourself or a family member (or have a diagnosis), also let us know if you are isolating due to exposure, since the same risk mitigating steps should be taken.

Wear a mask and gloves while packing, and sanitize any items will be handling directly (you can use standard antibacterial wipes or sprays, or make a homemade bleach solution). Try to have all packing done at least 24 hours prior to when will arrive, and store boxes in a closed room. When your movers arrive, stay as far away as possible, and continue wearing your mask and gloves.
