What Is Callahan Brothers Doing Differently during the Coronavirus, COVID-19 Pandemic?

Think smart and stay safe even when moving. Shippers should continue to follow all of the standard pandemic rules and apply them to moving as well.

Our Company has continued to serve the public as an essential business and is taking the coronavirus pandemic very seriously. In our tradition of Professional and Courteous Service, our Company has put into place protocols designed to protect our customers, employees, and drivers.

These include:

  • Following federal and local guidelines around social distancing and sanitization
  • Providing phone & virtual surveys instead of in-home surveys for convenience and safety.
  • Frequently sanitizing trucks and equipment
  • Practicing social distancing with customers and, as much as possible
  • Wearing masks and gloves


Social Distancing

Customers are advised to maintain social distancing when movers arrive. Best practice would be to isolate yourself in another area inside or outside of the home while the men are working.


If you are packing yourself, be prepared and have all your boxes packed, sealed, and ready to go prior to the arrival of your movers, and coordinate from a distance.


If you need to sign any paperwork, wear a mask, use your own pen, and wash your hands frequently.

Just a suggestion:

To aid your movers in following necessary hygiene practices while the men are working inside your home, have antibacterial soap and paper towels by the sink, and hand sanitizer by the door that they will be entering and exiting through.

When the movers arrive, let your mover know right away if you or anyone in your family is experiencing coronavirus symptoms. Transparency is very important for keeping everybody safe. And in many cases, your movers will still work with you, but they will put additional protocols into place to protect their workers. In addition to letting them know if you suspect the illness among yourself or a family member (or have a diagnosis), also let them know if you are isolating due to exposure, since the same risk-mitigating steps should be taken.
