Tips for Moving During COVID-19

As things start to open after so many restrictions this past year, Sullivan is continuing to follow the CDC guidelines and precautions to ensure our customers feel safe throughout their move. We at Sullivan Moving & Storage continue to put our customer’s first, and we have put together some tips for things you can do to help keep safe throughout your San Diego move.

1. Wear a mask and keep your distance.

If you are immunocompromised, you should always wear a mask in the presence of others, especially if you don’t know if they have been fully vaccinated. Double your protection by keeping your distance from others — at least 6 feet.

While some customers like to watch movers carefully as they remove items from their house to put in the moving van, this isn’t really necessary. Evaluate whether you think this is truly important. If you think it might be, at least consider watching the process from outside.

2. Keep it clean.

Do your best to protect yourself and the movers by disinfecting hard surfaces before and after the move. That includes items you are moving as well as surfaces in your old home and your new home, such as countertops, sinks, etc.

Disinfecting wood furniture or upholstery with bleach or other chemicals is not recommended, as it can damage the wood or the fibers.

Our moving company also recommends if you decide to stay on-site during the move that you open all the doors and windows in the home for better ventilation. It’s always safer to interact with others outdoors, so it’s a good idea to try to make your indoors as safe as the outdoors.

3. Recycle packing material after you move.

Many times, after you move, you want to save some of the good, high-quality cardboard boxes you used for another time. Think about scheduling a debris pick up with our company or recycling the boxes yourself.
