I mentioned a while back that even though it may seem like we’re not paying attention to the COVID 19 crisis because of the Big Canoe purchase, we are. We don’t go out except for the store and biking and I’m taking Finn to the vet today … all allowed under the “lock down”. Moving and relocation services are still considered essential businesses and we kept a safe distance from the realtor while viewing the houses a couple weeks ago (and drove separate cars) and we haven’t come into contact with anyone else during the process.
Yes, we’ll drive to GA … that’s hours in the car with just us and two stops – gas and a drive through for food. Again nothing we wouldn’t do at home. The closing will be with one other person in the room at a safe distance.
We are not packing up our house, No movers are involved. We’ll get a key at closing and walk into a furnished house and we’ll have the personal items needed for a stay of several weeks in our car. The new house is more remote than our Tampa house and some would argue it’s a safer location than Florida.
So I appreciate the concern – we’re not taking risks and for those of you who think we’re ignoring the government requirements during this time, we are not.
