3 Steps to Moving Overseas Safely in a Pandemic

Moving overseas at the moment may feel like a precarious thing to do. However, the world keeps turning and jobs are being offered and postponed and transferred, and lives are still continuing. Whilst the pandemic may have initially impacted the moving industry, we’ve had a busy summer and many people can simply no longer afford to stay put – particularly if their move is time conscious.

We’ve helped thousands of people move in 2020, so rather than fearmongering, we wanted to share with future customers the safest, most convenient way to move during a pandemic. And how you can ensure safety is your priority, without compromising on a happy move.

1. Stay on top of all travel advice and guidance

The best thing you can do for your peace of mind and your move, is to be prepared. Governments are constantly updating their official websites with advice for travel and those coming into and out of the country. Take a look at the local news from your destination and ensure you’re aware of any guidelines or quarantining rules you might need to follow. Every country differs with precautions, laws, and rules, and things are changing all the time, so stay up informed.

2. Find a reliable curbside mover

When you’re moving during a pandemic, the main thing you need to do is minimise contact with strangers. UPakWeShip is a curbside moving company, which specialises in collecting and delivering on your door-step. This means, nobody has to go into your home, nobody is using your toilet, nobody is touching your belongings, and you know exactly where everything is and what needs prioritising. By packing yourself, not only do you minimise the impact of your move, but you can also save yourself a lot of money. Curbside moving is the perfect option for those who want to move safely and affordably. You can receive an instant quote for your move, right now.

3. Upgrade your flights using the money you’ve saved

Moving with UPakWeShip is safe and affordable, just the way we like it. We’ve laid out how using UPakWeShip’s moving services are socially distant, but the impact of moving with us goes further than that. Moving without packers means you a lot of money on people coming in and packing your belongings. Why not use this extra budget to upgrade your flight and ensure you can have a bit more room and be less likely to sit near others in cramped economy seating.

Don’t let the fear of moving stop you from fulfilling your dream. Moving right now can be done safely if you follow the government advice and minimise contact where possible. Find out your moving price right now with our instant rates calculator.
