So you were planning on moving out to your new beautiful home and then pandemic outbreak came out! What should you do when places are being locked down and the risk of going outside is out there?

Good thing you’re here, this is how we can help you! We have listed a few tips below to help you ensure your safety and a smooth move out process during the Pandemic outbreak.

Tips to Moving Out This Pandemic

Moving is complicated, whether you choose to handle it on your own or hire professionals like Interstate Removals, to help relieve some of the stress that comes along with packing and unpacking for hours on end. 

But if you have no choice but to hire a company to assist you with moving to a new home during the coronavirus pandemic, you might be feeling even more anxious as you figure out how to remain as safe and healthy as possible throughout the intense process.

Here are a few tips you should know…

Use Fresh Packaging

In the past, it wasn’t uncommon for people to reuse boxes from the grocery store in an effort to save money. However, this approach isn’t recommended during the pandemic. According to the New York Times, the virus can live on cardboard for up to 24 hours

Double-check the details of your move

In most places, moving is considered an “essential service,” meaning that help should still be available. That said, it never hurts to double-check on all the different facets of your move, especially if there is extensive travel involved, which may prove more difficult in the current environment.

Choose a moving method that minimizes contact, if possible

If at all possible, choose a moving method that minimizes contact between you and other people. Moving on your own, over time, maybe an option. Using storage pods to transfer your belongings without much contact with others may also be a great alternative.

Provide extra sanitizing materials for move-in day

On move-in day, you should be sure to provide enough sanitizing materials and protective equipment for everyone involved in the process. Access to a sink and hand soap at both locations is ideal, but if that is not possible, try to stock up on plenty of hand sanitizer. In addition, you may want to provide face coverings and gloves.

COVID-19 Made Netflix the Winner by Default

Netflix’s battle with cinemas seemed to have reached a conclusion when the COVID 19 forced people to stay home and moviehouses to close.

 

When it seemed that in January 2020, cinema operators had won, after the multi award-winning non-English, South Korean movie “Parasite’ made a killing at movie houses. Although already available at streaming sites, millions still flocked to movie houses in order to see the movie in full cinematic view, and find out why Parasite won the Film Academy’s Oscar awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film.

“Parasite” had delivered earnings of as much as $44.3 million to theaters in North America. The outcome made the future of the cinema industry at the start of year 2020, look bright and promising. After all, several potential blockbuster movies were already in the lineup of films scheduled for release, led by Daniel Craig’s “No Time to Die” James Bond movie.

Netflix came out of the battle beaten, hardly winning any award that the streaming giant had hoped to claim, by investing heavily in the production and promotion of the Martin Scorsese/Robert DeNiro movie “The irishman.”

The Coronavirus Crisis, Made Netflix the Winner by Default

However, an unfortunate stroke of luck swayed the decision in favor of Netflix, as the COVID-19 disease had imposed restrictions that made the streaming giant, the winner by default.

Moviegoers had no other choice, since theaters were ordered to shut down, while residents were told to stay-at-home to avoid contracting and spreading the disease. Netflix became a lifesaver. The streaming giant continuously provides millions of people throughout the world with fresh and original content, keeping them entertained while forced to stay at home.

Perhaps, it will take moviegoers some time before they will venture to see a movie at cinemas, as they will probably wait until the health crisis clears out. Nonetheless, during the months that the lockdown orders have been in place in every region, the streaming company already emerged a winner.

Last April 2020, Netflix reported to have gained 15.8 million subscribers, which brought the current tally of Netflix customers to a total of 183 million. The increase enabled the streaming company to generate as much as $709 million in Net Income, which more than doubled the Income Netflix generated in the same period last year.
