Top Tips for Moving Home During the Lockdown in London

The lockdown doesn’t seem like ending any time soon, even with the welcome prospect of vaccinations now taking place. With cases rising, it makes sense but will result in more anxiety for people who are planning a move. Is it possible to relocate during the pandemic? Or is this something which needs to be postponed?

The answer is yes, you can move home or workplace during the lockdown, and Safe Removals are still performing relocations. There are a few things to be mindful of, but we’ll guide you through each stage of the process. We can also take on emergency jobs if you find yourself in a sticky situation and need a last-minute relocation.

Booking a Removals Service During the Lockdown –

We can’t speak for other removals providers, but we’re still working all over Greater London every day and have no plans on reducing our operations. This includes people and businesses from the neighbouring counties, as well as for national relocations. Safe Removals’ vans are on the road every day, providing necessary, sometimes urgent removals services.

It’s important to state this because we’re receiving a lot of inquiries from people who have concerns about a booked removals job. Naturally, the fact there’s a lockdown in place makes them worried about us cancelling their move.

Working with Businesses for Emergency Relocations –

For most businesses in London and throughout the UK, survival is the main objective. The pandemic has already devastated thousands of companies and sole proprietors. Those businesses that are still open will be looking for ways to remain operational and trim their outgoings. That’s why so many business owners consider moving to a cheaper rental property, in addition to considering remote working for their employees.

The small business community is vital to London’s economy, and we’re committed to playing our part. That’s why it’s vital we’re ready and willing to assist any business who needs us to expedite a relocation. And this applies to companies of all sizes in any business sector.

This gives us a wealth of knowledge to tap into, which is a massive advantage when dealing with emergencies or complicated removal problems.

How Self Storage Can Benefit People in Tough Situations –

Self storage is a multifaceted service which can help people as they prepare to relocate. It’s easier to pack things when removing items out of your home completely. This creates more space and also means that your possessions are in a safe and secure environment. And that’s one of the main advantages of storage – the additional security you receive from using a self storage unit.

However, when it comes to emergency situations, self storage can become a safety net. An example would be when someone needs to move in with their extended family at short notice. It’s often impossible to transport everything across and find enough space to store them all. And the usual ways of reducing your possessions aren’t available.

Safe Removals offers last-minute storage services because we understand things don’t always go to plan. We will do everything possible to reduce contact during your move-in, including signing contracts via email. Our facilities are spotlessly clean, and we use products that eliminate viruses and germs from surfaces.

Specialist Services Most Removals Companies Don’t Offer –

If you need to move a safe or strongbox, it’s vital that you only work with specialists. Due to their weight and size, it’s something you have to hire a professional removals company to undertake. Not only could you cause damage to your property, but you might also injure yourself or someone else. It’s easy to lose control of a safe when moving it, even if you have the right equipment.

The Safe Removals team have specific equipment and training to uninstall any type of safe or similar item. This becomes especially important to ensure that the area you’re removing the safe from doesn’t sustain damage in the process. Additionally, it safeguards everyone onsite during the removal. If you’ve gone to the trouble of installing a safe to protect your valuables, it makes sense to get a professional to uninstall and move it. And we can handle any similar object up to two tonnes in weight.
