Moving During Covid-19
Is Hills Moving operating during the pandemic?
The Ontario Government has listed moving services as an essential service, and therefore Hills Moving is still operating during the pandemic. We are following every procedure and guideline to ensure that we are putting the safety of our customers and staff first.
What is Hills Moving doing to prevent the spread of Covid-19?
Our employees have been advised to notify management immediately if they are experiencing any signs of sickness even if those symptoms do not meet the minimum requirements set by the Ontario Ministry of Health to qualify for Covid-19 testing. If any employee has a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, they will not be permitted to work without a doctor’s note stating they are fit to work. None of our employees have been out of the country in the last 30 days.
Hills Moving is taking every precaution and safety measure, including regularly sanitizing trucks and equipment, and taking temperature checks on every employee. Each employee is equipped with hand sanitizer, gloves, and face masks to prevent the spread. We have also advised our staff to practice social distancing, maintaining a 6-foot distance with our customers while on a move.
We ask that our customers be mindful that during hot/humid weather, wearing a mask while carrying heavy furniture up/down stairways or ramps can make it extremely difficult to breathe and therefore can become a significant hazard.
What can our customers do to help prevent the spread of Covid-19?
Hills Moving requests that no more than 2 customers be present in the home while we move you. Having more people around would just be a risk that is unnecessary. Please be respectful of our crew by maintaining a 6-foot distance while our workers are on your move. We also recommend that our customers wipe down all surfaces with disinfectant wipes. (i.e. banisters, doorknobs, and appliances.)
We ask that our customers advise our office if you have been out of the country in the past 14 days. Also, if you or any family member in the household is exhibiting any signs of cough, fever or difficulty breathing please let our office know. If any employees feel that you or a person in your home is showing signs of being ill, they/we may decide not to proceed with the move.
