Your Upcoming Move and the Coronavirus
As of now, we are working to be as responsible as possible with regards to the virus. We are actively encouraging employees that exhibit symptoms to stay at home, reminding our team to wash their hands as much as possible, implementing work from home policies for our office staff, and thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting our trucks and supplies every single morning and throughout the day.
As of now, we have no plans to close shop or suspend operations and we don’t foresee a situation in the near future in which we would need to.
We are closely tracking local closure and CDC recommendations in the markets we operate in. State officials in impacted areas believe that we are indeed an “essential service”, and we have yet to see a government ordinance state that people’s lease terminations are being postponed or mortgage payments suspended. This means people will still have to move and move on time. We will be here to help.
With that being said, if we are alerted by government authorities that we need to avoid contact with individuals or suspend operations, we definitely will. Like many businesses, we are responding to an ever changing news cycle as quickly as we can. We will continue to update customers as often as possible.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
In the meantime, help us help YOU and the community. As your move date approaches please let us know if you are running a fever and/or if you are suffering from flu like symptoms. We trust that you will keep us informed either through email or by calling to let us know in advance so we can make a decision on a case by case basis if your move should be postponed. If you need to reschedule, remember we have zero reschedule fees so don’t hesitate to give our office a call.
In observance of the possibilities of coronavirus spreading, we apologize in advance for not shaking hands with you. Please make sure to give our moving team space as they operate within your home or office.
Additionally, we ask that you help prep your home or office in advance to our moving team showing up by disinfecting major surfaces, furniture items, and high traffic areas to limit as much exposure to our team as possible.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail anytime. We look forward to working with you soon. We hope this abundance of caution helps to make sure you and yours are settled into your new home or office safe and sound.
