Get A Virtual Estimate

If you reside in a warmer climate it may not be extremely important to wear it in the house, but when the movers come make sure everybody has a mask on all the time.

Wash your hands--a lot. Use soap as opposed to hand sanitizer whenever you can. If you're unable to wash, use hand sanitizer, however scrub with soap and hot water anytime you can.

Wait for the professional movers in Dallas to perform their jobs--stay six feet apart, and simply be patient. Resist the desire to hand the crew cartons and small pieces of furniture, and simply help from a distance. It is generally wise to stay out of the way even absent a pandemic and let the professionals work in peace.

Sanitize Your new Home Before You Move In
