COVID-19 has put many in a tough place. For those who have had expected to move to their new homes, plans may have changed. For those who were still on the path to move, they are now stuck between their sold house, their new house, or a potential family member’s home.
Moving During COVID-19
Those moving forward with venturing to their new home, shipping your car might be the best option. If you choose to ship your car, here is a list of a few best practices that we recommend.
#1 Wash The Interior of Your Car
Keeping the interior clean will help disinfect any areas that may contain dust or unwanted particulates. This will not only be beneficial for the health and well being of you and your family, but for the health and well being of your car as well. Having a clean interior makes the arrival of your car that much more appealing
#2 Remove Any Unneeded Belongings
Let’s be honest, a car is meant to handle people in it. That’s the purpose of one. Well, many cars see many people inside. From families to friends, the car acts as a method for all to gather. This is why it is important to remove all belongings. If they aren’t yours and they have been left in the car? It’s a good idea to reach out to whoever left it in there to retrieve it. Clothes, blankets, and any other belongings should be removed due to the potential to contain bacteria. If it’s been sitting in your car for this long, chances are it hasn’t been washed since you last used it. Take it out and give it a good scrub.
#3 Wash The Exterior.
Cleaning the exterior of your car is essential. It allows the user to see any imperfections on the body. You should take note of any dings and dents scratches and nicks before shipping your vehicle. It also keeps your cleaning looking sharp. For enclosed shipping, this is important. Washing the exterior of your car allows you to see if anything happened during transport.
Disinfecting Slows COVID-19
While many might not think this is important, anything being transported across state lines has the potential to deliver with it the virus. This can cause problems for yourself and your family members. Remember to maintain safe distancing practices. Be safe, clean, and courteous.
