With the introduction of new variants, our team is keeping up-to-date on the latest medical information to prevent any potential outbreaks. We’re more than happy to adapt to your needs in order to keep you and our team safe.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Great Movers has made it our job to keep our customers safe. We have been in operation throughout the pandemic as moving companies are considered essential business. Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak in NYC, we have been committed to following proper safety precautions while providing the same exceptional service.
Our moving crew comes in every day and provides the same level of customer service despite the pandemic.

New Yorkers are tough, and there’s no doubt that we will come out stronger than ever after these challenging times. Naturally, we will continue to follow the necessary safety protocols we have put in place.
Our moving crews go above and beyond safety requirements to mitigate the threat of spreading COVID-19. As one of the top NYC movers, we’re committed to helping you navigate through these challenging times by:
- Sterilizing our trucks daily
- Sanitizing our hands before and after every move and wearing latex gloves
- Wearing masks and respirators during the move
- Refraining from shaking hands
- Checking temperatures of all our employees on a daily basis
- Social distancing during the move
- Doing only virtual walkthroughs of your apartment
- Implementing any other safety measures as recommended by the CDC
- Contactless moving that includes virtual home surveys, electronic booking, cashless
payments, virtual communication, and socially-distanced packing and moving
How to Keep Yourself
While we at Great Movers take precautions to create and maintain a healthy moving experience, there are steps you can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and its variants. A few simple steps you can follow include:
- Washing your hands often
- Staying home if you feel sick
- Avoiding touching your nose and eyes
- Wearing a mask
- Social-distancing as much as possible
While we might not be able to completely halt the virus from spreading, we can slow its progress and keep our most vulnerable from contracting COVID-19. If you want more information on how to protect yourself and your community, check out the recommendations from the CDC.
When it comes to moving, we recommend our customers wipe down any surfaces and areas our movers will be working in. It’s also a good idea to have everything fully packed a day or two before the move to prevent potential spread. If possible, we also recommend you wear masks while we are in your home. That way, neither one of us will potentially transmit the virus to the other. If you or your family or roommates are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, alert the movers immediately. In general, we will still work with you, but we will put in additional protocols to protect our moving crew.
Flexibility For A Changing World
Things happen. We get it. And with everything going on with COVID-19, we’re happy to provide a bit of flexibility. So long as you reach out to us three days before the scheduled move we’ll be happy to reschedule or cancel and give you your full deposit back. One the other hand, if you need to move immediately, we do offer same-day moving and storage services.
If you have any questions or concerns about our services, you can reach out to us directly. Our customer service team will be happy to answer any of your questions. As an essential business, we have been working through the entirety of the pandemic. Our goal is the same as ever – to provide our customers with the best service possible.
