Moving During the Coronavirus Pandemic
A Guide For Movers
The novel Coronavirus—also known as COVID-19—has engulfed most countries around the world. The virus has left no aspect of our lives unaffected, no matter how big or small.
If you were planning to move in or move out of Seattle or Kent, you might be questioning your decision right now. And you’re not alone.
Our expert team of professional movers in Seattle and Kent has been concerned about how to continue our operations while guaranteeing the safety of our customers and workforce. As the world stands in solidarity during this pandemic, we’re moving forward with as many precautions as possible.
COVID-19 In the Seattle Metropolitan Area
There have been calls for stricter social distancing rules as Washington reports 247 deaths and nearly 6,000 cases of COVID-19 as of April 1st, 2020, within the capital. These measures need to be taken to prevent the spread of the virus.
The CDC and WHO insist that everyone take extreme personal hygiene precautions. This includes washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, wearing masks and gloves, and sneezing into your elbow.
WHO and CDC also suggest that you stay at home if you feel sick and avoid touching any commonly touched surfaces altogether. You should also carry a hand sanitizer with you when stepping out and wash your hands as soon as you reach back home.
The good news is that the Coronavirus pandemic in Seattle and Kent is still under control, with people practicing social distancing for weeks now and mostly working from home. Citizens have taken it upon themselves to only step out of their homes when necessary.
Yes, the stay-at-home order in Kent is possibly going to be extended, but this is for the greater good.
But what about the movers out there?
Moving In Or Out Of Seattle or Kent
Moving out of your house and into a new home is sometimes wholly unavoidable. You might have paid the mortgage, bought a new house, paid for its utilities in advance, or sold your existing home with a fast-approaching moving out date. At this stage, you might not be able to delay your move. And that’s alright.
Moving is overwhelming—but this feeling is even more all-encompassing during a situation where everything needs to be scrutinized first. If you decide to go ahead with your move, remember that you need to take precautions and be careful about hygiene. You need to ensure that all your belongings are safely packed, so no germs, bacteria, or viruses come in contact with them.
With our moving in and out services across Kent and Seattle, we guarantee that your belongings will be protected and transported safely. We also promise that we will ensure the highest standards of hygiene.
All of our employees have been trained regarding best practices during this outbreak and will do whatever they can to facilitate you. We are still providing estimates, and may even offer them remotely if required.

It can be scary to move amidst the Coronavirus outbreak in Kent and Seattle. We recommend that if you are a vulnerable group—the elderly, or someone who is immunosuppressed—you should delay your move.
