Wear protection Don’t pack your gloves, masks and sanitizer. Be always prepared when you are loading and unloading your moving vehicle.
Disinfect and sanitize Before moving your items to your new home. Sanitize all door knobs, counter tops, and all frequently touched ares such as appliance handles and kitchen utensils.
