Van Man Removals response to Covid-19, 13th May 2020

Firstly, we hope that this message finds you safe and well.

Given updated government general advice that “if you cannot work from home you should be encouraged to return to work” and more specific industry advice that house sales, purchases, rentals and removals can start to proceed again, we are planning our return to work.

Exact dates and our capacity are yet to be confirmed but we would encourage anyone looking to move to get in touch.

Indeed, the government’s advice on house moves is to contact removals companies as early in the process as possible. There’s a link to this advice in full, updated today, below.

In response to the current pandemic, we have plans in place to carry out more virtual surveys using phone technology – photos, video and video calling - and have updated our online quote forms and inventory systems.

We also, and as always, take our staff and clients health and safety very seriously and thus have put a comprehensive risk assessment in place. This brings us into line with HSE " Staying Covid-19 Secure in 2020" Policy. All staff have been fully briefed on this and all relevant PPE has been purchased.

We have also put in place a concise list of requests for our clients to help keep everyone safe, which we can send you upon booking, or earlier in the process if you would like that.

We really look forward to getting back to work, though we imagine that we may be entering a challenging time still, and really appreciate our clients choosing a small, locally-run family business for your house move.

All the Best,

Mike Bradley Director, Van Man Removals and Storage Ltd
