Coronavirus News & Updates
To Our Valued Customers:
Like you, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. As a family owned small business we are committed to doing what we can to keep our team members, customers and the community safe and healthy. We are following all of the CDC recommended strategies for businesses and adding additional measures to suit our facility, including increased cleaning of all high-touch surfaces and extra washing and deep- cleanings of all our trucks.
We ask for your cooperation in complying with guidelines for reducing risk such as maintaining physical distance from others and disinfecting hands and surfaces.
Here is a sample of the precautions and measures we take, to keep our equipment, staff, and customers healthy and safe:
- Providing virtual estimates rather than in-home ones if needed;
- We have taken the time to reiterate the practices of good hygiene, like frequent hand washing, providing hand sanitizer and gloves for the moving crews;
- Rather than greeting customers with handshakes, Route 1 Movers is encouraging our employees to greet them in some other way, including a fist or elbow bumps
- In partial and full packing services we use only brand new boxes until further notice
As you plan and prepare for your move, here are some steps you can take:
- To ensure everyone’s health and safety, if you or anyone within your household may have contracted Coronavirus, or are isolating due to exposure to the virus, call your us and explain the situation; in many cases, we will work with you
- Your health and the health of your family is important. If you are in a vulnerable group, over 60 or have a compromised immune system, schedule your move after the pandemic is over if it is at all possible.
- Provide your moving crew access to a sink, soap and paper towels throughout your move. If this isn’t practical, and it is readily available, provide hand sanitizer
- Purchase new moving boxes and tape; this isn’t the time to use recycled boxes from online sources and free sites or from stores
- If you have not already purchased food for the next couple of weeks, you’ll want to stock up on items that you eat regularly. Any shelf-stable items can be donated before your move to lighten your load
While we’re practicing social distancing and/or if you must be home from work, spend time decluttering; find online auction and sale sites to sell items that you’d rather not donate.
