SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR COVID-19 MOVING
The following safety procedures for COVID-19 are in place to move you safely and efficiently as possible:
No-Contact Moves: We are facilitating no-contact moves and we take remote move management to another level. You can provide instructions before your job, and or speak with us on video on during your move. Therefore, once you book with us, you can send us photos, floor plans, directions, etc., and we’ll brief the Foreman. If we have any questions during the move, we will contact you via phone or video chat. We’ll go the extra mile to meet your needs. See No Contact Moves – A Safe and Stress Free Moving Experience.
Extra Precaution: Our movers wear gloves and masks on every job (and booties – optional upon requests). Please let us know at the time of your booking if you would like to include booties ($2 per pair).
We are conducting virtual estimates: However, if you’re unavailable during office hours, you can record a video of your home and send it to us for a quote. Learn more about video estimates, what to expect and how to conduct your own. See Video Estimates to Keep You Moving During COVID-19.
Move-in/Move-out Building Procedures: If applicable, please check with your building(s) and confirm their COVID-19 Moving procedures. Let us know if there are guidelines we need to keep in mind. Notably, any restrictions on access to the building elevator, loading/unloading? The more we know, the better we can plan a more efficient move for you. If you need to share a letter with your building management, please this PDF – JP Urban Moving COVID-19 Letter.
MOVING DURNG COVID-19 OUTBREAK – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Moving companies are designated as essential service providers by NYS Executive Order 202.6.
Not all NYC moving companies offer the same quality safety procedures and COVID-19 moving precautions. Whether you are choosing to move with another NYC moving company or us, it is essential to practice these safety guidelines:
Please wear masks and gloves when being present for your move. If not, stay off-site and away from the movers while they work. We are happy to provide you with protection resources upon request.
Please clean/disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, especially door knobs and handles before the movers arrive.
Please open your windows and let the air circulate freely.
Postpone your move if you or members of your household are sick or have shown symptoms.
We appreciate the trust that you place in us. There are hundreds of NYC Moving Companies to choose from. However, not all moving companies offer the same quality and safety measures for your move. We know your moving matters, and we are confident we can make your moving experience as safe and stress-free as possible. Above all, we will continue to work with strict safety protocols and take actions necessary to continue to keep our workers, customers, and community safe.
