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 Hansen Bros. 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.
