COVID-19 Guidance for Customers

Due to the unprecedented situation with regard to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the removal industry has had to review its operational procedures in order to protect both customers and employees from the risk of infection.

Our removal teams have had instruction on how to maximise protection while working within the close quarters of your home to ensure your safety. This includes safe use of PPE, frequent washing of hands and sanitising vehicles, and the washing of uniforms daily at high temperatures.

For more information about the measures we are taking to ensure your safety, read our Covid-19 guidance for customers.
