COVID-19 has changed and delayed a lot of plans. But as we move through the winter and into spring, we can’t put life on hold forever. If you have been putting off your big move due to the pandemic, now is the time to find out the best way to move as safely and efficiently as possible.

We have collected some top tips for how you can move in Townsville during COVID, covering both moving locally and moving states.

What is Covid 19?

COVID-19 is a infectious disease that comes from the coronavirus and originated from a city in China. Since it spread on December 2019, it has been mutating and new strains has been found. The new strain is highly contagious and spreads easily from person to person through droplets or saliva. Cases have been shrinking as people have been following social distancing guidelines and the number of people being vaccinated has increased.

Moving Locally and Interstate

At this time, you are completely within your rights to move homes within Townsville. Moving locally should be fairly easy and safe, as long as you take the proper precautions in order to keep your move COVID safe. However, this will be more difficult if you are considering a move to a different state. If the state is in lockdown, you will not be able to move there, but once they are open, this should be fine. You should always check with health department websites to ensure that your move can go ahead before arranging anything firmly or paying any kind of non-refundable deposits. Rules may differ by state based on the current cases and infections, so it is important to stay abreast of the news to make the best decision for you.

Things You Must Do on your Move During COVID

Keep It Clean

As you know, a big part of staying safe during COVID-19 has been keeping things clean, and this counts double during a move. After checking your moving checklist and done packing all your valuable things, you should disinfect your furniture and boxes, as well as any contact points like pulls and doorknobs, before your movers get there. You can also provide them with handwash and antibacterial hand gel. This is also a great step to take at your new home – a deep clean is essential, and you can even hire professionals to do this for you so that you feel completely safe. It is especially important to take this extra step if you are immunocompromised. To keep your most valuable things away from the virus, we suggest you to get a self storage unit to store your items prior to your move to keep them away from more people.
