Covid-19: Are Removalists Essential Services?

Covid-19: Are Removalists Essential Services?

Moving house is never easy. You have to take time off work, work out what stuff needs to go in what box, workout if the kids can be picked up in the usual way, organise a van or a removalist service, and now, even with COVID-19 restrictions relaxed somewhat, work out how to do it all in this new world we face. 

So, Are Removalists an Essential Service?

Well the simple answer is, yes. Depending on which state you live in, it’s basically business as normal for removalists. The only change for the most part is How much work can be done – some removalists are largely booked out for a while into the future. It’s definitely worth calling your local cheap removalists in Sydney’s Inner West to check first, for example. Think about an interstate move and what the restrictions suggest in each state too, as they may be different. 

Can I Move Office Still?

Again, you can, but it will just take an extra step of planning. Moving offices is also not an easy thing to do for many businesses, however, with social distancing and many businesses being operated remotely, it might be even more tricky as many employees may have office equipment such as laptops and monitors at their homes. Choosing a removalist that can work with all of this has never been more paramount than it is now, and you might want to check out our tips in finding the best office removalists before you go any further. Again, depending on how far the move is, be sure to check all guidelines from where you are moving to and from. 

How Do I Move Home Safely?

There are many things you can consider when moving home safely during this time. Being as contactless as possible with payments and your things, for example. If you are feeling symptoms of Covid-19, you should consider taking steps to either postpone your move and isolate, or not being around when the removalists come – for example, emptying out one room entirely so when they pick up your things, you can isolate in a room that they do not need to enter. Any professional removalists in Manly, Bondi, Blacktown or wherever you are will be sure to stick to protocol and guidelines to ensure both your, and their, safety. 

When Moving, Be Sure to Use Certified Services

As you might have seen, there has been a swathe of “wannabe entrepreneurs” who have been bulk buying items to be sold online at a profit, or taking to the internet to offer a service (without being a professional or carrying accreditations and licenses etc). Be sure to do thorough checks of anyone you do business with, for example, finding a trusted Baulkham Hills removalist or a reliable, experienced and accredited removalist in Bankstown or the North Shore, or wherever you are. This is due to the knowledge they possess, the ability to stick to the right protocols and having the right insurances. They take greater care over your possessions, and over your and their welfare. Going with a shady looking cheap gumtree option might look good in the short term, but might not work out long term, especially at a time like this. 

To sum up, you should always check your local guidelines, work out if the move is totally necessary and last but not least, don’t do it if you need to be isolating due to suffering from symptoms. Otherwise, it’s completely business and usual for you and your move.

Meet The Author - Bill Chen

Before 2008, Bill was working with a local removalist company in Sydney and was witness for a number of deformities and wrongs in the working of the company. Observing the atmosphere, a thought came to Bill’s mind that he could do much better if he were the owner of the company, by offering a fully transparent service to the clients with a friendly and trustworthy staff and no hidden fee structure; and thus, in 2008, AAA Bill Removalists Sydney was formed with just one truck and only Bill as staff. Even if Bill Chen began the company as just one man, the company grew fast. The operation expanded beyond the Sydney suburbs and to the surrounding cities: Wollongong, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Canberra, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, and other.
