Dear Mid-West Moving & Storage Client,
Mid-West Moving & Storage (MWM) continues to assess the COVID-19 situation and we are working to ensure the safety of everyone. MWM is monitoring all new information regarding the virus from the Illinois Department of Transportation, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, the Center for Disease Control and more.
Concerning Mid-West Moving & Storage Booked Client Moves:
At this time MWM does not have any plan to postpone current booked moves and we will continue operations while monitoring the ongoing situation on a day to day basis.
We take this situation very seriously and plan to continue our present processes in which we clean and sterilize moving equipment after every job. We are restricting all sick employees from working and are asking all clients to let us know if they are sick before we enter their homes or offices to protect all parties.
At this time, recommendations from state and federal health officials are focused on limiting international travel and on limiting gatherings in the immediate future.
Mid-West Moving & Storage considered Essential Business & Operations (Essential Services):
