Coronavirus and moving house
CORONAVIRUS UK: CAN I STILL MOVE HOUSE?
Have you got a move scheduled and don’t know what to do? How will Corona virus and lockdown affect your moving date? To limit the spread of the Corona virus, the UK Government have issued advice on measures that must be taken when moving house during Corona virus.
You can read more about it directly from the Government website here, but with these measures in place for the foreseeable future, let us at themovingexperts answer your main concern, “Can I still move house during the Corona virus?”
WHAT CAN I DO IF I HAVE TO MOVE HOUSE NOW?
The UK Government is recommending that all house moves be postponed until the Corona virus crisis is over. They are asking all parties to work together to agree on an alternative moving date. However, in some extreme cases, an alternative date is not an option and your house move may be considered an ‘essential’ move, particularly if the house you are moving to is vacant.
In these cases, it’s important to maintain social distancing rules, moving yourself with the help of family and friends is definitely not an option. Helpers must be limited to the people who live in the house.
Therefore, our recommendation is to hire a professional moving company, a company that already has hygiene and lockdown procedures in place.
Relocation is still possible, urgent moves can continue, but keeping your family safe must be your highest priority.

Discover the 2 options available to keep your family safe
You can move yourself. But remember, you can’t ask your family and friends to help. Only the people living in the house can assist with the move.
Moving house is a stressful event at the best of times, but having to do it all yourself during Corona virus is not something you have to endure alone. There is always ‘Option 2.’
Hire a professional mover. Hiring a professional is always a good option to reduce stress around moving house, but during the Corona Virus you can rest-assured that your household items will be taken care of, and that hygienic processes are in place.
