The COVID-19 pandemic has changed every day life for millions of people, but despite social distancing and stay-at-home directives, moving is not an event that can always be avoided or postponed. Whatever the reason for moving to a new place, the Incline Village movers from Owens Brothers Transfer want everyone involved in the move to be as safe and healthy as possible and have outlined some tips to help.
Moving and the date of the move are not always flexible. Relocating for work is still happening. Some have taken advantage of work slowdown to retire and move. Some businesses are changing locations. There are any number of reasons making a move to a new location and fortunately, moving services are considered essential services and are still available to help families pack, move, unpack and settle in.

The team is professional, skilled and very sensitive and respectful of all of their clients needs no matter how short or long the move.
