  1. Limit Contact with your Crew.
Of course, if we were weren’t living through a pandemic, you’d likely want to hire the friendliest movers. However, right now social distancing is what controls the spread of the virus. As such, what you now want is a crew that limits direct contact. With our movers, we’ll work with you to create a plan of action that will limit physical contact while getting your belongings transferred safely.
  1. Choose Temporary Storage as “Plan B.”
Some folks may not have much time to plan their move. If that’s what your situation is then temporary storage might be the best solution. It would allow a speedy “relocation plan” with the least preparation necessary. Whether you need short or long-term storage, you’re assured someone keeps your belongings secure until you need them again.
  1. Inquire About Schedule Change, Refund or Cancellation Policies.
Nowadays, the more flexible the services, the better. As such, take the time to inquire about schedule change, refund or cancellation policies. At Florida Moving Systems, we’d gladly take the time to go over our flexible packages to give you the support you need.
  1. Use Additional Hygiene Safeguards.
To keep everyone safe, it is recommended to use extra hygiene safeguards.
  • Do not bring in recycled boxes from outside the home as it has been shown the coronavirus can survive on different cardboard and plastic surfaces.
  • Wipe down boxes before using them. After unloading the truck, wipe them down again.
  • Have sanitizers and supplies for hand-washing on-hand for frequent disinfection.
