Should you be Moving Home in 2021?
Whilst the world continues to develop and change in reaction to the pandemic one thing you should be asking yourself is if you need to move home right now or if your move could be delayed. For example, if you are moving to Canada from abroad or moving overseas from Canada, is this move essential immediately or can it wait for a few months? If you are planning to move home in 2021 where that is moving across the country or moving to another city, there are a number of things that you will now need to consider and be aware of. With the ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 virus and its effects, a number of new rules have been put in place to prevent the spread. Depending on where you are moving from, particularly those moving overseas or those moving to Canada from overseas in 2021, you may experience increased restrictions on how and when you move home.
Moving to Canada in 2021
If you are planning on moving to Canada during the pandemic from an overseas destination, you will need to abide by some strict entry requirements and be prepared to have your applications and arrival experience delays. Depending on when your 2021 Canada move takes place you may also need to complete a quarantine or isolation period upon your arrival to the country. Of course, this may mean that you will need to arrange for the collection and delivery of your household belongings around these extended dates. If you are planning on moving to Canada in 2021, it is important that you first check the Canadian government website for the most up-to-date information about restrictions and stay in touch with your move manager in order to be alert to any changes that may affect your move to Canada.
Moving Within Canada in 2021
Whilst international arrivals to Canada are heavily restricted, current guidelines mean that if you are already a resident within Canada, you should still be able to move home as long as you follow local guidelines closely. Our long-distance moving services in Canada can cater for moves of any size with our local Canada movers ready and waiting to make your 2021 move as safe and as simple as possible.
Steps to Take to Protect Yourself When Moving During the Pandemic
Whilst moving home has been advised against until recently if you need to move home during the pandemic, there are a few steps you can take to protect yourself during the process.
Sanitise all of your belongings before and after the move
Practice social distancing at all times
Monitor your health and your family’s health to ensure you do not have any symptoms of the virus during the move process
Finish packing your belongings 24 hours before the move to avoid lasting germs on surfaces
Wear face masks and gloves where needed
The most important thing to remember when moving home during the pandemic is to be aware of all local laws and guidelines and be aware that they could change with very little notice. By following the above guidelines throughout your move however, the risks of moving home will be minimised.
