But when you think about how any move means travel on bumpy roads, and long hours in confined spaces that may get hot or cold, it makes sense.

As a business, we must abide by the strictest guidelines, and ensure public safety as much as possible even if the worst happens, for example if there’s an accident and the moving van overturns.
