Keeping your family and our communities safe amidst this pandemic, requires us to work together, especially when considering a family relocation!
At Buehler Companies, this means getting families – like yours – the information they need to create a sound family relocation plan. A plan that will help your family move safely.
Talk to Buehler’s Family Relocation Consultants
The first thing you should do to ensure safe family relocation is to connect with Buehler’s team of family relocation consultants.
This person will help when it comes to developing and implementing your family relocation plan.
The usual details like packing, scheduling movers, arranging for temporary storage, cleaning pre and post-move day, etc.
…all these things still need to be done, but with extra careful attention to detail.
Creating a CDC Compliant Family Relocation Plan
Your Family Relocation Consultant will review timeless packing best practices.
This is not the time to save money on salvaged packing supplies. Your family will want to buy new – never used – supplies. For example, Buehler can provide your family with clean plastic totes for packing.
Your Family Relocation Consultant will take extra care to ensure boxes and other packing materials are clean – not contaminated – upon arrival at your home. We conduct due diligence to ensure our vendors are following CDC standards.
For germ-free packing, it’s crucial to follow the correct steps.
Ensure that best practices are followed by opting for professional packing services.
Good news, moving companies are considered essential businesses.
Best practice, under usual circumstances, is to schedule your moving company four to six weeks ahead of time.
Scott Luedke, our President and GM, explains,
“To keep customers and employees safe, Buehler Companies is taking extra precautions leading up to and on move day.”
Expect things to take a bit longer than usual. Plan ahead.
Arranging for Temporary Storage
The need for temporary storage is not unique to moving during a pandemic. What is unusual is the way customers are using storage.
For example, Luedke says,
“One of our long-distance drivers was going to New York when the shipment’s owner got sick. Right away, we redirected the shipment to one of our temporary storage locations for quarantine.”
Around the world, situations like this are happening every day. As a result, storage is less available and more important.
Sure, you’d expect to clean your home once everything is moved out.
However, the CDC is recommending families to;
“Perform routine environmental cleaning and disinfection procedures…”
This is especially true if someone with Covid-19 symptoms has been in your home.
Arrange for deep-cleaning services before packing, before movers arrive, and after movers leave.
Creating a cleaning checklist is a great idea.
Safe Family Relocation Management
As you can see, there is a lot to think about when it comes to reducing risks associated with moving during a pandemic.
Crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s is a job best left to the professionals.
