Removalists - Big Challenges during covid19

December 29, 2021

With how rapidly COVID can move, we want to stress the importance about following all of the Australian Furniture Removals Associate guidelines that are received daily. All Total Care Mover employees will follow all precautions, e.g. wearing face masks, using hand sanitiser often. All the equipment Total Care Movers use are sanitised daily along with our trucks as per our requirements. COVID is able to be transmitted through the air and also personal belongings, so we all need to be careful and thorough when following the necessary guidelines. Below we will touch on some recommendations for a COVID-safe to removalists.

Advice for Stress-Free Removals During Covid-19

Be careful when hiring removalists

Due to the aggressive nature of this virus, we recommend you take as many precautions as possible. We suggest you wrap your belongings in plastic bags before placing into removal cartons. This may help with piece of mind for both you and our removalists.
Our operations team are dedicated to safety, each day checking temperatures and symptoms of our crew. They also have a quick questionnaire for all clients, before sending crews into an area that may be deemed “Hot”.

Survey of Removals

Here at TCM we encourage a pre-removal survey. Traditionally this entails one of our sales representatives attending the house to take inventory of goods intended for transport. It is here where we attempt to answer any questions you may have or offer advice on any specialised items you may need. A virtual survey can be arranged if you feel safer than an actual meeting. A meeting will be set via ZOOM to get a free, no obligation quote. You are able to contact us and ask about what steps they are implementing for a COVID safe removals’ process. Total Care Movers provide all necessary information regarding the process for moving.

Before Move

To keep yourself and our team safe you should clean and sanitise your household belongings before moving, this will also help you to disinfect yourself as well as your home.

Maintain 2 Meter Distance

Have you asked what social distancing measures your removalist makes? It’s important you know your removalist Covid-19 response and how they are implementing social distancing, this is to ensure both yourself and the employees are kept safe during moving homes in a pandemic

When the removalists approach, it is important to maintain at least a 2-meter distance so you will not affect by COVID19 from any person. Covid-19 can move from a hand and can cause a COVID19 infection.
