Can I Move During Coronavirus?


At Wheaton, the health of our customers and our employees is our first priority during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. That being said, we know that life continues to move and so do you, so we will continue to provide essential services to our customers around the country.

Every day our drivers, crews, and local moving company agents perform selfless acts to ensure families have the ability to shelter-in-place with the basic belongings they need to carry on. Moving during coronavirus can be done, and our network is working hard to mitigate the spread of the virus.

How Do I Move Safely During Coronavirus?

First, our network is following CDC guidelines to protect customers and crews. Most of our headquarters staff is working remotely so that essential employees can do their jobs with a much lower risk of contracting the virus. We’re of course implementing the suggestions you’ve heard about washing hands regularly and limiting contact.

In this vein, many of our local agents are offering virtual estimates to limit the number of people entering your home. Those who do need to be in your home to pack or load your belongings will greet you with smiles rather than handshakes. In addition, we’ve put together the checklist below to offer more guidance to our local agents:
