Moving during COVID-19
What is Coronavirus and how does infection occur?
The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus. Coronavirus is mainly transmitted by airborne droplets as a result of inhalation of droplets released from the patient’s respiratory tract, for example by coughing or sneezing, as well as droplets of saliva or nasal discharge. It can also spread when the patient touches any contaminated surface, such as a door handle. In this case, infection occurs when you touch your mouth, nose or eyes with dirty hands.
How can Coronavirus be transmitted?
Transmission ways are:
- Airborne (the virus is released by coughing, sneezing, talking);
- Contact household (through household items)
What are the symptoms of Coronavirus?
The main symptoms of coronavirus:
- Labored breathing
In the vast majority of cases, these symptoms are associated not with coronavirus, but with the usual SARS.
How Coronavirus can be prevented?
The first thing you can do for protection is to respect your personal hygiene and reduce visits to public and crowded places. Wash your hands with soap and water and use a disinfectant as often as possible.
Try not to touch your face (mouth, nose, eyes) with unwashed hands (usually such touches are unconsciously performed by us on average more than 10 times per hour). At work, regularly clean devices and surfaces, you usually use (computers, office equipment, smartphones, door handles and handrails, remotes,).
Do not eat such food as chips, nuts, cookies from common packages or utensils if other people dipped their fingers in them. Explain to the children how microbes spread and why good hand and face hygiene is important. Tell your children about coronavirus prevention.
If you feel symptoms similar to mentioned earlier, stay home and call a doctor.

Does the situation with COVID-19 mean that you have to cancel your moves?
Definitely no! Moreover, you can get a number of advantages from your move J
1) The risk of getting infected when moving with Titan Relocation is very low
when placing a moving order, we propose to almost completely exclude the participation of the client and his family members in the process of moving. That is, the customer, for his part, leaves only one representative of his interests, who controls the actions of our employees (movers, pickers, etc.). This reduces unnecessary personal contacts.
2) Moving now is the cheapest ever
With the onset of the pandemic, we all found ourselves in a difficult situation. Some people temporarily lost their jobs or part of their salary. Titan Relocation Company understands that sometimes it’s difficult and expensive to cancel a long-planned move. Therefore, we are trying in every way to help you. Including in relation to prices that are now more accessible than ever.
3) Now you can move easier and faster
Due to the spread of COVID-19, many people have switched to distance learning or work. Now, when you work at home, you have much more free time, because now you do not need to spend time traveling to the place of work or study and back. Therefore, right now you can organize a move absolutely any day, even weekday and, of course, devote more time to thinking through the details of the move, making it easy and quick.
The only problem is with moving to another country. Such moves should be postponed, as it’s not safe to travel outside the USA now.
You can entrust us your move even in the hardest times. Titan Relocation Company always take care about its customers and their health!
