A new year is here, and in 2021 we’re all eager to go back to normal and move forward with our lives and businesses.
For that to happen, it’s essential to be familiar with new health and safety regulations in the UK. So what do those regulations say about moving homes?
The British government’s advice to industry is useful for removals companies, estate agents, surveyors, and people looking to move or sell their property during the pandemic.
It’s good to remind ourselves of how important it is to work together and follow the rules to ease the NHS’s burden and minimise the risk of infection.
Let’s work together
Keep the following advice in mind if you’re planning to move home soon:
- Get in touch with your removal company if you or anyone in your household develops symptoms. If this happens, you’ll need to postpone the move.
- Clean all surfaces before the movers arrive.
- Keep internal doors open while they movers are in your home.
As a reliable removals company, we follow the “hands – face – space” rule while we do the job. It’s helpful if homeowners also do the same:
- Use hand sanitiser after touching objects or surfaces.
- Wear a face-covering indoors or in crowded situations.
- Stay 2 metres away from others (1 metre if you’re wearing a face mask).
- When you move, you’re likely to need storage. Clean your belongings before putting them into boxes.
We are doing the best we can to keep everyone safe. Estate agents, movers, and others in the property industry are all following government advice and encouraging others to do so. Your patience and understanding are much appreciated! Whether you need advice on moving or packing, want to book a video survey, or need storage space, just get in touch.
