Amid the coronavirus pandemic, we are all facing the challenge of adjusting to a new environment. As an essential service provider, Olympia is here to support all businesses, organizations, and institutions as they shift their facilities in response to the crisis. Whether it is business as usual or reacting to this new environment, Olympia has been there to support many organizations and institutions during these challenging times. Here are a few ways we’ve been serving facility needs big and small during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Packing and relocating employee equipment and desk contents to home offices
Many businesses are placed on a work from home order. Olympia has been helping people acclimate to their new home environment by moving equipment and desk content to their new remote office. When employees are working from their homes, organizations need to make sure employees have everything they need to get their job done. This includes materials such as desks, files, computer monitors, and specialized equipment. Olympia can receive or pick up all office materials and deliver them to employees’ home offices, or receive shipments of office supplies to distribute.
Labor for projects & day-to-day facilities needs
In this environment, many facilities are now short-staffed or have more limited labor at their disposal. Our crew members can perform a wide variety of ongoing or ad hoc tasks to fill your labor demands. Olympia has been lending an extra hand for any day-to-day facility needs during COVID-19 pandemic, and as well as for projects that need extra labor. We are here and ready to support organizations with a variety of different needs.
Preparing spaces at universities, schools, office buildings for extended closures
As the pandemic continues, many universities, schools, and office buildings are preparing their facilities for extended closure. Olympia can assist this process. Many businesses are taking steps to help with social distancing while continuing to fight the COVID-19 outbreak.
With extended closure for schools across the country, we have been helping campuses respond. This entails movement of furniture to storage configuration, packing of equipment and boxes, as well as clearing any spaces. In the early days of the pandemic, we helped universities set up quarantine rooms to keep people distanced limit the spread of the virus. Additional rooms may need to be set up to prepare for the future. Our professionals are fully capable of handling this kind of work so that you are ready to re-open once we overcome this pandemic.
Packing and storing college student belongings
As schools closed early to keep students and staff members safe, Olympia was on the front lines of the evacuation for several universities. We packed out campus dorm rooms and stored students’ belongings in our warehouse, until they are ready for delivery back to the university when school resumes. For those who are graduating or will not be returning to campus, we shipped their belongings to their homes across the country.
Delivery of packing materials
In the days leading to closure of major institutions, Olympia delivered tons of packing boxes and material for employees, students, and more to pack for departure. As you look to pack up your facilities for relocation or closure, Olympia can deliver packing materials to expedite the process. To limit exposure, it is better to use new packing materials overused in this environment. Olympia will deliver boxes and more right to your location.
Transportation and loading of shipping packages
As facilities are changing, items and equipment need to be moved from location to location. If you need to ship in large quantities, Olympia can assist with transportation from your organization to local shipping centers. We have to capacity to deliver items big and small to fulfill all your shipment inquiries.
