Covid-19 update                             Updated Tuesday 5Th of January 2021


We are now returning to work fully and taking bookings for and from July.


Updated Tuesday, 5th of January 2021


Return to work procedures


EMEL Removals are doing all that we can to help prevent the spread of Covid 19. On the morning of Tuesday the 5Th of January all of our staff were tested for Covid and all passed. 

These test were purchased at our own expense. We received no help or funding for this but this is a sign oh how serious we take all of this.

On the day of the move one member of staff will introduce themselves to you and complete a walk around check and risk assessment. The staff member that will be completing this role will be wearing a mask and gloves. 

All staff are supplied with and carry masks/gloves at all times. These are to be worn whenever approaching a customer. We highly advise that all customers also follow every precaution to ensure the safety of themsleves, our staff and the public.

When the staff are working they are NOT required or asked to wear a mask. This is an incredibly physical role and the well being of the staff is paramount. We advise that customers vacate the premises while the staff are completing any move.

We expect all touchable and solid surfaces to be sanitised prior to our arrival.

All staff are supplied with sanitiser but please ensure that there is running water on the day of the move. 

After each move we will rotate all blankets and covers etc and give them sufficient airing time before re-using them. Staff will be tested for Covid at random or up on showing any symptoms. 

It is the customers responsibility to notify us if any member of the household is showing signs of Covid. 

We will not accept any liability for anything Covid related however, as you can see we are putting a lot of effort and resources in to place to prevent the spread and as long as our customers are doing the same then we are happy to continue moving people in this difficult time.

COVID-19                                      Updated March Tuesday, 24th 

Please bare in mind that we are now under no obligation to work or to complete moves. The business and the staff have made the combined decision to do our best to keep things moving for our customers at this difficult time. This means that we are extremely busy and all working very hard. Please allow us to operate safely, allow us plenty of working space and please cleanse your home and belongings before our arrival. Please do all that you can to help us and continue to help others.

  • We are no longer offering home surveys until further notice but we are prepared to provide prices for your move via video call, FaceTime, by video recording or buy pictures which can be sent to us via email, Facebook or WhatsApp.
  • It is the customers full responsibility to notify us of any symptoms or cases within their home.
  • A member of your moving team will arrive to your door to fully discuss your move on the day.
  • An assessment will be taken out on each job before work commences to discuss any concerns regarding the current situation and how this may affect you or your move.
  • All staff are supplied with gloves and face masks to be used where necessary.
  • All vans are equipped with hand sanitiser.
  • It is the responsibility of the staff to keep us informed of their current health and is their responsibility to self isolate where necessary. We have a duty of care to our staff and our customers and will continue to do our best to ensure a safe environment for all involved.
  • All staff have been briefed on the current situation and it is completely their choice whether to work or not.
  • We advise that on the morning of your move that you turn off all heating and open all windows to ensure good ventilation. This is to be repeated at the new house.
  • In the event of a customer having symptoms, the staff will arrive as normal and can go over the move with you by way of video message (where this is an option). You are welcome to supply us with a floor plan of the new house with diagrams to show us where furniture is to be placed. All of this means that there does not need to be any physical contact between customers and staff if this is the preferred or safest option.
  • A deposit of up to 50% will be required as standard to confirm any booking. Any move cancelled or altered within 7 days or less of the arranged date will result in the loss of your deposit regardless of the reason. Any alterations made with more than 7 days notice will incur no extra costs and you will not lose your deposit. 
  • We will continue to assess the current situation along with keeping up with current advice from various authorities and will adjust as required. 
  • The advise we have received from various sources is to make our own decision but to where possible, complete all moves already under contract or deep into a chain.
