With much of the U.S. under various kinds of “lock-down” or “shelter-in-place” orders from local governments or from national authorities, many of Arpin’s customers have been contacting us to learn about our company’s response to the virus and to the situation in general.
Arpin Van Lines is continuing to operate while our entire team works together to fulfill commitments to our customers who need to transport their goods across the country. Of course, we’re taking every precaution to make certain that our workers and customers are protected according to federal and local hygiene guidelines.
Our trucks are routinely disinfected, all members of our work teams wear protective gear and regularly wash their hands while on the job. Our business offices undergo the same rigorous safety precautions. Moving is an essential part of the modern economy, and anyone who has a need to move during this challenging time can count on Arpin Van Lines to get the job done and get it done safely, efficiently, and promptly.
On every trip, Arpin Van Lines workers follow federal guidelines, including:
Arpin Van Lines is carrying on with its regular schedule and continuing to fulfill all commitments for previously scheduled moves. We’re also accepting new appointments from customers who want a reliable, reputable national moving company to transport goods from one city to another. Our work crews are in place and, so far, our business has not slowed down. One reason we continue to operate is that, for most people, moving is not a voluntary endeavor.
It’s common for companies to relocate workers and for people to seek better job opportunities, attend college in faraway locations, and even sell a home in order to downsize to a condo or apartment. In all these situations, people seek professional movers with the best equipment and work crews in the business. Arpin will continue to operate and conduct “business as usual” until further notice.
Of course it will. We honor all commitments to our customers and make no exceptions. If you want to get details about your upcoming move, change some of the details, or even reschedule, contact your local Arpin Van Lines office and speak with the manager. All of our local branches are in place to assist you, wherever you happen to be.
Simply call your local Arpin Van Lines office or submit an online form in order to estimate the cost of your upcoming move. The online form will give you a ballpark number to work with. The best way to get an accurate dollar figure is to have an Arpin professional take a look at your items, in person. That way, you can get a closer approximation of what your total moving expense will be.
If you feel uneasy about moving during this time period, it’s your decision whether or not to cancel a move. Simply phone your local Arpin Van Lines office and let the manager know you have concerns about the virus and want to cancel. At that time, you will be able to either cancel or reschedule your move for another time. The choice is yours. We want our customers to feel safe and secure at all times, so don’t hesitate to call us and let us know if you want to change the date of your move or cancel it.
According to federal authorities, there are several things you can do to minimize your risk. If you already own a mask, you can wear it while outside your home. Additionally, you should wash your hands several times per day in soap and warm water. Remember to wash for at least 30 seconds each time.
Attempt to stay at least six feet away from others when you are interacting with them in any way. This includes situations in which you have to meet and speak with others, both outdoors and indoors. This kind of social distancing is a good way to protect yourself from becoming infected by others.
During your move, keep hand sanitizer in your car, and be sure to use it each time you stop anywhere for gasoline, food, or rest.
Arpin Van Lines provides full protective gear and sanitation items for all its workers, including face masks, alcohol hand cleanser, and rubber gloves. The van line is following current conditions as they relate to COVID-19 in terms of our crew wearing personal protective equipment (PPE):
We let our customers decide about their own level of comfort when it comes to moving. Some people go ahead with moves regardless of the situation. As long as you take all the recommended precautions, there should be no reason to worry.
However, we understand that many of our clients and prospective clients would prefer to postpone a move until the virus passes. At Arpin Van Lines, we work hard to accommodate all our customers’ desires. So if you want to postpone, cancel, or go ahead with your original plans, we’re here to help.
Simply call your local Arpin Van Lines office or submit an online form in order to estimate the cost of your upcoming move. The online form will give you a ballpark number to work with. The best way to get an accurate dollar figure is to have an Arpin professional take a look at your items, in person. That way, you can get a closer approximation of what your total moving expense will be. And we offer alternative move surveys to enable accurate move quotes without an in-home visit.
