Pickfords Fully Operational Following Government Advice
There are indications that removers Pickfords are open for business once again.
Following the amended social distancing and working guidelines from the government on Sunday which stated that if you cannot work from home you should be encouraged to return to work, Pickfords have resumed their full packing service which was suspended on March 24 in order to comply with social distancing advice at the time.
Pickfords has created new safety procedures in order to ensure the safety of their staff and customers which has been deemed paramount to the company in ensuring they were able to reopen their operations.
Given that removers cannot work from home, they are increasingly taking the advice as the green light to begin moving once again which could be the impetus needed to help some of the estimated 372,000 delayed home moves.
The firm are completing new risk assessments for all removal jobs, including removal teams practising clear social distancing from movers and compulsory PPE equipment being worn at all times. Removal crews are also encouraged to wash their hands regularly to ensure the spread of any germs is minimised.
Managing Director of Pickfords, Mark Taylor, said
“Our highest priority is the safety of our customers and employees during this period. We are confident that with the co-operation of our customers and removal teams, we can adjust the way we work without compromising our business operations or customer service”
Pickford has updated its ‘Guidance notes for customers’ to prepare its customers for the changes in procedures, which will remain under frequent review.”
