Covid-19 Corona Virus
Following the outbreak of Covid-19 and the impact it has had around the world, Greers have changed the way we work to help protect our colleagues and our clients. Everybody's safety is our number one concern!
What does this mean?
As you can understand there are some things we can not change as we will need to work in your home or office, some clients will need to come into us to access storage but we can work together to reduce the risks.
Arranging a quote
To date our existing and past customers have been amazed at the level of information we have been able to find out over the phone, from the internet or from some photos. For example, most houses will have brochures online which we can see and review together avoiding the need for a survey.
Alternatively you can use out online quotation form
If you prefer (or as required), we can carry out an onsite survey. Our surveyor will be able to visit you at your property and will follow our comprehensive risk assessment and check list which includes the use of PPE and social distancing. (see our policy below)
Contactless quote, contract, payment, and supplies
All of our paperwork including quotes, questionnaires and payments are either sent electronically, by post or over the phone so there is no need for you to visit our office. If you have purchased materials such as boxes, paper and tape as part of your move, these will be delivered to you directly and left in a pre-arranged place minimising personal contact.
All our removal operatives have had comprehensive training and will follow our standards as set in the Risk Assessment for Managing Covid-19 conditions (see below). We will be using our own PPE and will bring our own supplies which includes our own refreshments.
We will need help from you to ensure we are able to carry out the move which we will discuss with you. Simple but key areas include
You will be able to find more information in our Risk Assessment for Managing Covid-19 Conditions (see below)
How things have changed
With over 40 years experience, we have seen many things and are constantly reviewing and updating our processes. Covid-19 is huge, long lasting challenge which is why we are continually monitoring the latest developments and requirements. We have drawn up detailed risk assessments and checklists following all guidelines recommended by the UK and Scottish Governments, the Freight Transport Association and H&S Executive.
