The COVID-19 crisis is fluid and there are many uncertainties and factors outside of our control that may, with little or no advance notice, impact our delivery of moving & storage services.

Steps Peasley Moving & Storage is Taking:

  • Company-wide Implementation of all precautionary measures recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
  • Office staff and moving crews are being monitored daily for symptoms and/or known exposure by management and asked to go home, contact their healthcare provider, and self-quarantine as directed. Staff members that experience symptoms and/or aware of exposure when not at work have been directed to stay home and notify their supervisor.
  • Office staff and moving crews are receiving daily briefings on precautionary measures and have been directed to follow them on and off the job.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being instructed to maintain appropriate “social distance” of 6 feet minimum between one another, customers, and all other people.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being provided with appropriate hand sanitizer and surface disinfecting supplies. They have been directed to disinfect truck cabs and moving equipment between each move to the best of their ability. These supplies will continue to be replenished as we are able, based on availability from retailers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with work gloves to be worn during the moving process and disinfected both during their work and between customers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with appropriate masks (when available) to be worn during the moving process as circumstances require.

  • Peasley Moving & Storage is offering Virtual Estimate Appointments! For more information, please visit our Virtual Estimate Appointment page or ask about this terrific option when speaking with one of our professional relocation consultants.

Steps We’re Asking Customers To Take Prior To Our Arrival At Your Residence:

  • Please notify us immediately if you or any members of your household have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing.
  • Please use disinfectant/cleaner to wipe down commonly touched surfaces, objects, door handles, etc. at your residence.
  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.
  • Please keep residence and office windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and less potential containment of germs.

We are all in this together.  The team at Peasley Moving & Storage is proud to continue offering our wide range of services in accordance with the necessary precautions outlined above. Whether you or your business will be moving down the street, across the country, or around the world, we are here to make the process seamless & safe for you, just as we’ve done for well over a century.

    • A move is pretty disruptive for our little ones so try to be extra sensitive to their feelings and concerns about the move. As much as possible, find opportunities to make them feel that they’re an important part of the move process by giving them “special” projects and rewarding their hard work along the way. Most children enjoy a good adventure and will most likely embrace the moving process if they feel like they are important and not forgotten during the process.  Some excellent ideas include;
      • Arrange for plenty of opportunities for your children to exchange goodbyes with friends and other connections. Print up small “we’ll miss you” cards with your new address, phone number, and email address for your kids to share.
      • Let your child decorate a special box of their own, and ask them to put their special possessions in this box.
      • Ask for their thoughts and input on decorating and arranging furniture in their new room.
    • Share the news about the move with your children as soon as practically possible, this helps avoid the risk of them learning about the move unintentionally.  Be sure to share relevant and positive details about the move then ask them how they’re feeling about the move and listen closely to their reactions. Reactions to moving often varies by the age of the children;
      • Younger kids tend to miss familiar people such as a teacher they like, along with safe and secure environments such as school, church or possibly even their bedrooms.
      • Older kids, particularly teenagers, tend to miss friends and their relationships with neighbors and other members of their community.
    • Settling into a new home, neighborhood, and lifestyle requires a tremendous amount of effort but it’s important that the kids feel like they have a little bit of control and you dedicate a little extra attention to helping them find and settle into new activities and social groups.
      • Once your belongings arrive at your new home, try to allow the kids to have some say in how their new space is arranged.
      • Let the kids tackle some of their unpacking – this will reinforce that despite the new surroundings, there are plenty of things that are familiar and safe.
      • As much as possible, try to get your child reconnected to their favorite activities – this is the best way to begin forging new friendships and making their new home feel like home.
