Moving or Decluttering? Secure Storage Is an Essential Service
There’s no doubt about the fact that COVID-19 has severely impacted how our society works and how we have had to change the way we do things. Some things we don’t have to stop though. Storage and moving are an essential service meaning they can still be performed within the framework of government regulations and safety practices. People can still move home and put their belongings in storage. Even if you’re shifting your home around and putting some furniture in storage to make room to work from home, knowing that it can be done is reassuring. Our lives have changed, and we have to adapt. Kent Removals & Storage will help you do just that with the same hassle-free service we’ve provided for decades.
Health and Safety
In the name of safety, we are now focussed on more than the security of your belongings, we are also focussed on the safety of you, your family, and our staff. To keep everyone healthy we ensure that our removal specialists are wearing masks and gloves at all times, using hand sanitiser regularly and maintain social distance at all times. We also limit social interactions by no longer shaking hands. When the Kent team arrive, we would kindly request you wear a mask, as we do. Kent Relocation Group treats the well-being of our customers and our staff as a priority, and take all precautions to ensure safety.
Another very important aspect of keeping you and your family safe is that of your boxes and other packing equipment. To prevent contamination, we will no longer be accepting second-hand boxes, but we can provide you with whatever boxes and packing materials you need.
Australian Government Restrictions
The Australian government as declared removalists exempt from many of the travel restrictions and quarantine requirements which have been put in place. We do however need to be conscious of the fact that changes can and will occur. There are restrictions which may apply to the movement of you and your family, which you will need to adhere to.
To further ensure the efficiency of our service, it is important to keep abreast of developments when it comes to any new movement measures put in place and limit the spread of COVID-19. We are in touch with regulatory agencies to adapt to any changes which may occur. To this end, we will also inform you of any changes.
