With 1 month in front of you, think of the essential things during your move. The truck and the arms! And yes, without a truck and without help you will not go far. Reserve your truck in advance and make sure you have a few arms to help you. Ideally, this year with the pandemic, call on your loved ones to limit the risks, adopt the rules of distancing and respect the instructions of the government. The Quebec Housing Corporation offers a guide to good practices to adopt. Otherwise, think of professional movers, this will also be a recommended option this year. Indeed, the services of movers remain available. They also received recommendations from Quebec public health (INSPQ) to prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19.
