FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

What are some important tips for moving during the COVID-19 pandemic?

We advise our customers to practice social distancing, to wear gloves when moving, and to clean out plastic bins used for storing or moving items. Additionally, it makes sense to use new, unused boxes when you store items for a short or long trip. Wipe down commonly used surfaces and be sure to keep your face covered at all times.

Is it safe to plan a long-distance move during the outbreak?

Yes, it is safe to plan a long-distance move during the crisis as long as you practice safe hygiene as described above. To facilitate work with moving crews, it helps if customers can provide a sink where crews can wash their hands with soap and water while moving boxes into or out of your residence.

How will I manage my moving schedule if my moving destination or origin area is shut down?

If your point of origin or your destination is in a strict lock-down zone, contact E.E. Ward and discuss the situation with the local manager. Our teams are making every effort to keep schedules current, but in the event of a lock-down zone problem, our teams will see to it that your items are safely stored until such time as the move can be completed. If you have not yet begun your move, and your destination is in a lock-down area, it’s best to call your local E.E. Ward manager and reschedule the move.

What precautions are taken by movers due to COVID-19?

All our movers wear protective gear, like face coverings and/or face shields. Each of our team members will wash hands frequently during the day with hot water and soap, avoid getting within six feet of others, and be careful to avoid touching unclean surfaces. Our crews are also informing customers about proper safety precautions. Any team member who feels the least bit ill is instructed to stay home from work.

Is it possible to reschedule my move because of COVID-19?

If the COVID-19 situation affects your moving schedule in any way, you should call your E.E. Ward local manager as soon as possible. Let the manager know how you’ve been affected and what you wish to do as far as rescheduling. Our teams are instructed to work with customers to find a mutually satisfactory solution to any scheduling dilemma. Fortunately, it appears that many of the restrictive policies will be lifted within a short time.
