Many people are now wondering if giving away things or furniture for storage to an external warehouse is safe during coronavirus. Or, if you can and should now organize private or office removals.
As Więcej Miejsca, we value the health and safety of our employees, partners and customers who plan to move or store things or furniture in the near future. Therefore, we decided to calm you down a bit in this topic.
The good news is that the coronavirus doesn’t have to completely paralyze our lives and that you can move or store your belongings safely. If you decide to do so, however, you should take special precautions to protect the health of yours and your loved ones.
Więcej Miejsca – a storage room for things and furniture is still in operation. Moving with us is also possible.
We understand your situation. You did the apartment project a month ago and were planning to start the renovation soon. This involved storing things and furniture so that the work went smoothly and that you could return to your renovated “four corners” as soon as possible. Or you sold the apartment and a next step was a moving. Maybe you’re out of your current office lease, and with most people going to work remotely wherever possible, you don’t want to move anywhere now and the only option is office and furniture storage, offered by companies such as Więcej Miejsca.
In such and similar situations, you are wondering if it is worth it and if you can move anywhere from home or invite anybody to your space.
Yes you can. If you want to start renovation and you use the help of architects, you can use them to remotely check using electronic tools how the work is progressing. Or ask a member of the renovation team to make progress videos for you. You don’t have to go to this apartment every day, just set a day for yourself on the weekend when nobody is there. Thus, you also have the opportunity to put your belongings for storage. You can also move your stuff to a new apartment or office (even if you won’t work there immediately). The good news is that there is no need to cancel all the plans that took you so much time (and probably stress), which was related to conducting the necessary arrangements related to finding the right companies, such as Więcej Miejsca, to carry out orders!
If you decide on such a move, you should especially take care of hygiene and cleanliness of yourself and the environment. Below are some basic tips that will increase your safety during scheduled collection of your items for storage or removals during coronavirus.
Keep a safe distance
Regardless of the current situation with coronavirus, keeping a distance from other people is always an important issue for your health. Of course, you should not go to extremes, but be aware of the danger and keep at least 1.5m safe distance from other people.
Wash your hands often
When packing your things, which you plan to give for storage, or in connection with moving, you will frequently need to wash your hands with warm water and soap. Regardless of whether you do it yourself or use the help of movers of a company such as ours, you should still care about hygiene.
Remember not to touch your face or mouth when packing or disassembling furniture. Soap and water will not always be at hand, but you must be aware of your movements.
Wear gloves and face mask
If you go outside, you can see people wearing gloves and masks nowadays, for example, when they go to a shop. So when packing your belongings it is also worth to practice that behavior. Also, when moving, if you use the help of an external company, it will not look strange, if you wear a face mask. Ask the movers of the company that helps you to do the same.
Wearing gloves and face masks is a great way to prevent the spread of viruses and germs. When you move or store your belongings, you will touch many different things and interact with people outside your everyday environment. Thus, protection with gloves and masks is a very good idea to protect yourself, your relatives but also employees of an moving or storage company, against the COVID-19 coronavirus. And also not to transfer any germs to the new apartment or office.
Find out if the movers carrying out the order for you are healthy
You may be moving only some furniture and not all your belongings, because you want to donate some or get rid of some. You may also want to give for storage just a few things from your apartment and not immediately each furniture with wardrobe contents. Doesn’t matter – you should ask about the state of health of movers who will participate in the order.
Coronavirus is a very contagious disease, especially since it also has an incubation period. The health consciousness of the team that will help you is very important.
Resign from the order, if you don’t feel well
If you don’t feel well, contact a company that is to help you with moving or storage service and tell about it. The sooner the better. The most important thing for you is to be healthy and safe. You can always set a different date for picking up your belongings for storage or private or office removals. Let the company know if you or anyone in your family has recently experienced coronavirus symptoms. Transparency is very important for ensuring the security of all parties.
As a responsible company offering door-to-door storage of things and furniture and comprehensive private or office removals, Więcej Miejsca is aware of the seriousness of the COVID-19 coronavirus threat. However, we know that by following special procedures and precautions that we implement ourselves, we can help you with moving or storing belongings, if you have such a need and you are not able to postpone the date. During an epidemic, however, common sense is important, so that all parties involved can go through the process as comfortably and safely as possible.
