Moving During Coronavirus?

05 Mar 2021

The current pandemic has altered life as we know it. It has restricted businesses, education, and movement. To some of us, even going to the grocery store can feel like a dangerous outing. So what about moving? Whatever your current circumstances are, you will need to assess whether or not it is important for you to move at this time. Moving during the Coronavirus is uncharted territory, so we’ve put together some information to help you make an educated decision.

Some of the main questions being asked online today are:

  • Is a moving company an essential service?
  • Are moving companies shut down?
  • Am I allowed to move during the Coronavirus?
  • How safe is moving during the pandemic?

Moving Companies are Essential Businesses

Moving companies provide what is considered to be an essential service and are allowed to continue operation at their discretion. Not all moving companies have chosen to stay in business during this time, so make sure to plan ahead and call several companies before choosing which one to work with.

Am I Allowed to Move?

Restrictions on movement are tougher than ever. Any unnecessary travel should be avoided at all costs in order to protect our communities. However, some circumstances require a relocation, such as: students who need to move off of a college campus, medical professionals who need to move to another state to assist with the crisis, and family members moving in together in order to help take care of each other. Whatever your circumstance, moving companies such as Ray the Mover are here to help.

How Safe is it?

While any contact is inherently a risk, many moving companies are implementing strong practices to combat COVID-19. Ray the Mover is one such company. Moving during the Coronavirus may not be ideal, but if you should need to relocate during this time, we will work with you to find the best option.
