The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) values the health and safety not only of our staff and members, but also consumers who have plans to move within the near future.

Moving has been deemed an essential service. The professional moving industry is open for business, working in a safe, sanitary and healthy manner for you and your family.

Many of our members are taking specific steps to mitigate risks to the health and safety of their employees and consumers.

The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are constantly updating their guidance, and we recommend checking their sites and/or following them on social media to receive the latest news and updates. AMSA will continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and provide updates when practical.

Here is a sampling of our professional mover member’s measures for managing through Coronavirus:

As you plan and prepare for your move, here are some steps you can take:

While social distancing and working from home, you can spend time decluttering. Please remember that many donation centers and resellers are closed, and won’t be able to accept your donations or consignments until after the pandemic has passed. There are services that can take these items for you, check with your mover to see who they recommend.
