On October 29th, the French government decided to reconfine the whole of France in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus 19 which has been affecting the whole world for several months now. However, a question may arise in the context of a move: is it possible to move and if so, under what conditions? Answers in this article with the important information you need to know.
Are moves allowed during this period of containment ?
"Moves will be authorized with justification during this period of confinement," informed Prime Minister Jean Castex on October 29. Of course, you will have to respect certain conditions to ensure that everything runs smoothly. You will have to fill in a derogatory certificate proving that you are going to move.
This derogatory certificate is mandatory so that you can avoid paying a fine of 135 euros in case of control. In the context of your move during the confinement, it is strongly advised not to move by your own means since you will not be able to call upon relatives (friends or family). Only 5 people maximum are allowed in a move.
Therefore, it is strongly advised to use professional movers who are licensed to do business. The movers will be able to provide you with travel certificates for your personal belongings. The drivers and the teams of movers will have all the necessary documents to ensure that your move goes smoothly.
In order to get in touch with a professional mover, you can do a lot of research on the internet. Not all moving agencies offer their services during this unseasonal period. Therefore, you will need to find the right agency through a lot of research.
What are the precautions for moving during containment?
As explained above, you cannot call upon your friends or relatives, as specified by the Ministry of the Interior. A move without using a company must therefore be done only with members of the same household. However, if there are two of you, it could be complicated to organize your move, especially if you are moving abroad or far from your current city.
Also, before the professional movers come to your home, it is strongly advised to clean your furniture or your boxes, or to start their preparation with gloves to avoid spreading the coronavirus 19. Once you have prepared all your belongings and boxes, you can put them in one room so that the professional movers do not go through all the rooms in your home.
This will limit the circulation of the covid virus. In addition, it is essential that you have hydro-alcoholic gels available for yourself, but also for the professional movers. For their part, the movers will have taken precautions by wearing masks, having cleaned the moving truck from top to bottom. Of course, if any movers show symptoms, they will be replaced automatically.
In this unprecedented and complicated time of containment, moves are still taking place. But in order to preserve the safety and health It is essential to respect the barrier gestures such as the distance of at least one meter between each person. It is important to limit contact as much as possible.
This is why, for example, in the case of a technical visit to your home, this visit will be organized via videoconference or by telephone. In addition, it is strongly recommended to have as few belongings as possible to move in order to avoid spreading the virus.
