Yes, we are open. As a transportation and logistics provider, we are an essential business. People have to move.
Mark the Mover has been Atlanta’s premier moving company for four decades in large part because of the trust and confidence that our customers have in us. The health and safety of our employees and customers is a top priority for our company.
The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been declared a national emergency by Washington DC authorities. We realize that in times of crisis and uncertainty it’s natural for people to be alarmed. We’d like to share the precautionary measures we’re taking in order to reassure our customers that they are in good hands. We want our customers to be able to continue to move with Mark the Mover having the knowledge that everything is being done to protect their health and well being.
We are following the advice of known, creditable sources that have expertise in dealing with pandemics. We are acting on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Their guidance protocols recommend the following actions which we have implemented:
- We are routinely questioning all employees to see if they or any family member has recently visited a high-risk country.
- We are cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch surface areas at our corporate facility, warehouse and on our delivery trucks.
- Frequent hand washing and hand sanitizing is required by all our employees.
- Team members must report if they feel sick and if they do they are instructed to stay home and to isolate themselves.
These are prudent steps that any proactive caring company should take. Additionally we would like to point out that according to the WHO, there is a low probability that an infected person will contaminate commercial goods. The risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from the transportation of goods is low. Our customers are the lifeblood of our business and we value each and every one. Mark the Mover will continue to deliver a quality service at a competitive price and we will always keep the best interests of our customers at the forefront of our operation.
