Moving in the time of COVID

Moving During the COVID-19 PandemicMoving during the COVID-19 pandemic is scary for many people. The threat of illness and uncertainty around the quarantine is putting many people on edge. While some moving companies may not be taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe, here at Men On The Move, we are. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you stay safe during your move!

Tips To Stay Safe Moving During COVID

  • Hire a mover that is practicing CDC issued safety measures

To keep yourself and your family safe from COVID-19, you should make sure that the moving company you hire is maintaining all of the safety procedures set by the CDC. Here at Men On The Move, we are sanitizing our office locations and each truck daily. Also, our movers are wearing masks and gloves while still frequently washing their hands and taking their temperature every day. Due to the method of transfer present in the COVID virus, we ask each of our staff to provide a social distance of 6 feet or more. At Men On The Move, your safety during these difficult times is our priority.

  • Clean and Disinfect Your Belongings

COVID-19 is transferred through airborne droplets which can rest on surfaces for long periods of time. Therefore, before and after the move to a new home, you should clean and disinfect your belongings- especially hard surfaces. With so many people touching your things, you should make an effort to disinfect every item, even if handled cautiously and with gloves.

  • Wash your hands frequently

The best way to kill any germ is to wash your hands frequently. Washing your hands for just 20 seconds in warm water could be the difference between getting sick or not. When moving to a new home, you should not only wash your hands but also wipe down anything that is excessively touched by others. This includes; doorknobs, fridge handles, toilet handles, and anything else you can think of.

Here at Men On The Move, we are executing residential, long-distance, and out of state moves during the quarantine. We are treating each move and each client with the utmost safety. If you are interested in moving during these difficult times, contact us today for any moving services in Southeast Michigan or the surrounding areas. We look forward to hearing from you!

A New Year A New Move

Reasons to Move

With the coming year, you may be looking to move and upgrade to a new home. There are many circumstances that may cause someone to move and moving at the beginning of the new year can be the best time. Whether you are moving to Novi, Canton, Plymouth, Troy, Ann Arbor, Shelby Township, or Farmington Hills, Men On The Move is the best choice for you!

Reasons For a New Year Move

  • New Job

Getting a new job is always a great reason to move, especially if a pay raise is involved. No one enjoys a long commute to and from work. Moving to a new house that is closer to your job is always a good choice. 

  • Better House

Are you moving into a house that is a better fit for you? People’s needs change so you may need to move into a house that can better accommodate you and your family. So, if you are adding to your family or just finding the house a little smaller as your family grows, moving into another house is always the best idea.

  • Better Area

Are you moving to get into a better area closer to family or to get into a better school district? When you move into a new house, choose a location that will work for you and your family in the long run. This may be a popular growing city such as Canton or a homey city such as Ann Arbor.

Benefits Of Moving During The Fall

Moving During The Fall

If you are planning on moving, move in the Fall. Fall if the best time to move for many reasons.  You can enjoy your entire Summer at your house before having to worry about packing and moving to your next one. Not to mention, the many other benefits to booking your move in the Fall season. 

Advantages to Moving During The Fall

  • Easier to book your move. Summer is the busiest season to move in because of families moving when kids are off school, warm weather, et cetera. When Fall comes, moving companies have more spots open in their schedule to move you!
  • Beat the holidays. One of the best reasons to move during the Fall is settling into your new home before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. With the worry of packing and moving out of the way, you can celebrate your holidays in peace!
  • Cooler Temperatures. No one likes to move during heat waves or snowstorms. Michigan Fall’s are relatively mild compared to the sweltering Summers and frigid Winters.
  • Easier home-buying experience. The peak home-selling season ends at the end of Summer. So, if you still have to buy a house in the Fall, the prices will decrease to appeal to more buyers. You might get a better price than what you originally planned for!

Springtime Moves In Michigan With Men on the Move

Springtime Moves In Michigan With Men on the Move

Wonder what some of the benefits of springtime moves are? Winter is finally over so now is the best time to move into a new house! Besides the occasional rain, the Spring season is the perfect moving season to relocate your family and your belongings as temperatures in Michigan are just right. There are also many benefits to moving in the Spring.

Benefits Of Springtime Moves

  • Fewer people move in the Spring than in the Summer. This means that our schedule is mostly open for your convenience.
  • Moving is more comfortable in the Spring because of the temperature. Winter is too cold, Summer is too hot, Spring is just right!
  • Spring is one of the best seasons to sell your house. A lot of people like to buy houses during the Spring season so they can be settled in by the time Summer comes.
  • If you have kids, moving in the Spring is the easiest time. There are a lot of school breaks in the Spring that they can use to integrate themselves into the new house and perhaps get ready for a new school. Not to mention, with the kids home, you will have an extra set of hands for unpacking.
