However, if the staff cannot see everything that has to be moved, then they might not be able to give you the full service moving package discount. Remember, they are not able to come out and see everything(for themselves). They will not be able to do that until the day of the move. Keep that in mind. Everything has to be virtually accessible to them for now.

This will cost you more money, so make sure you has the extra finances to cover it before, during, and after your move.
- You should also adhere to the CDC guidelines if you are going to clean and disinfect your belongings before moving. Professional cleaners are already well-versed in cleaning procedures. They are briefed by various CDC officials before starting.Those of you who want to do the cleaning yourselves should consider a few things.
A.) Use EPA-trusted disinfectants when you clean. Go through the CDC guidelines list online. Use only the proper cleaning products recommended by them.

Franco’s movers might have come in contact with someone and not know it right away(even if they are taking all the necessary precautions).
Wash your hands(especially if you have shaken hands). Wash hands before and after you touch surfaces. You also should try to encourage the Franco movers in doing the same.
To be fair, “We Move Anywhere” movers are probably taught to be aware of the consequences. The movers might wash their hands without being directed. Just be observant during the process. You should also have hand sanitizers available for you and the movers to use.
