Founded in 1890, Peasley Moving & Storage has successfully weathered many history-changing events including the WWI, the Spanish Flu of 1918, the Great Depression, WWII, the 2008 recession, and 9/11 among many other public crises. We are taking the current COVID-19 threat very seriously and will promptly adhere to any and all directives from local, state and federal government officials. Peasley Moving & Storage has been categorized as an essential industry business within the current mandate established by Idaho State Governor Brad Little.

As an essential industry business, we will maintain normal operations until such time as either company management determines we must close our offices or we are directed to do so by a governmental authority. We are taking extensive precautionary measures including the adoption of all CDC guidelines and the establishment of our own policies intended to minimize health risks for all customers, employees, contractors, vendors, and community stakeholders. We are proud to be able to support the needs of our customers during this crucial time but are prepared to quickly change course as required.

Stay safe together with Peasley Moving & Storage

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. Please be aware the current crisis could potentially result in small inconveniences such as a delayed project start time or significant inconveniences such as the complete rescheduling of services.

Although there are many unknowns to be navigated, you can be certain that Peasley Moving & Storage will be timely and transparent in our communications regarding servicing your moving & storage needs, and our professional relocation consultants will work diligently to offer creative solutions in the event your project is impacted by the current health crisis.

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 limiting visitation to our branch offices. If you wish to purchase moving boxes or supplies, please simply call in your order and we will happily deliver to your vehicle outside.
  • 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.

Tips For Moving With Pets

    For many customers, pets are an important part of the family and require some special consideration when planning a move.  Moving to a new home can be stressful for pets but there are steps you can take to relieve some of this stress and ensure that your pet arrives at your final destination happy and healthy.

    I've moved several times during my life and this rates as one of the best moves. A couple of glitches, but great overall!

    • Schedule an exam with your current vet’s office to check your pet’s health, obtain pertinent medical records and a health certificate (where required), update ID tags and discuss any precautionary measures needed for your moving trip.
    • If your pet is not already comfortable riding in a car, take your pet for several short rides around your current neighborhood before having them travel the long moving distance in the car.
    • It is recommended not to feed your pet for about seven hours before the start of your trip and pack a container of fresh water. Stop frequently during your trip for walks.
    • Make sure in advance that any hotels or other accommodations you’re staying in along the way are pet friendly and never leave your pet in the car alone.
    • Birds and other small pets such as hamsters or guinea pigs can often travel in their cages. This is recommended in a stable, well ventilated area without drafts. Covering the cage while traveling often calms these animals.
    • If flying with your pet, contact the airline well in advance to your move to check services and regulations. Direct flights can help to minimize the time that your pet is confined while traveling.
    • Help your pet become accustomed to their kennel or crate prior to the trip. It is recommended to have an air-transport kennel for your pet’s transport by air during your move so that they have a familiar place to rest during the journey.  Label the kennel with “Live Animal”, the pet’s name and your new address, phone number and special handling instructions for your pet and ask the flight attendant to confirm that your pet has also boarded the plane.

    Proper planning is the secret to making the moving process as seamless as possible for your pet.  Here’s a helpful list of items to pack and topics to address for your pet;

    • The contact information of your regular veterinarian and a referral vet at your new residence
    • Your pets medical records and any regular or trip-related medications
    • Spare collars with ID tags and leashes
    • Plenty of bottled water for your pet
    • Enough pet food and treats for the entire trip
    • Can openers, several water and food dishes, and plastic spoons for mixing food
    • Your pets’ favorite toys and blankets
    • Combs, brushes, and other care items
    • Plastic bags for picking up waste, paper towels, and cotton balls and q-tips to clean eyes and ears
