The next few weeks are normally some of the busiest for moving companies, as Quebecers prepare for the province’s moving day, but the pandemic has caused several problems, including a worker shortage and increases in rent.
Christine Coulombe, the owner of Déménagement Sanders, told The Record that this is her worst year since she got into the moving business. She saw strong numbers last year, despite COVID-19, so she is struggling to pinpoint the drop off this summer.
“For me, it is 50 per cent less than last year, it is a big, big difference. I have never seen this. I have owned this business for 15 years, and I have never seen this,” said Coulombe.
