What are you doing to ensure the health and safety of your customers and employees during the COVID-19 outbreak?
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and businesses around the world, we are taking extra steps to ensure the health and safety of associates and customers. This includes increased facility cleaning, providing more access to hand sanitizers, and adjustments to our facility configuration to create appropriate distance between employees. We are also encouraging all of our employees to be mindful of their health, and embrace healthy habits such as increased hand washing to slow the spread of the virus.
Will you be limiting/ceasing operations at all during this outbreak?
All BULQ facilities will continue to operate normally, unless otherwise noted. For those who have purchased pallets, all delivery drivers will be minimizing contact with customers during the delivery process. Drivers will still perform a threshold delivery, but will ask the customers to spell their names, which will be printed on the delivery receipt. Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver shipments in areas that are under “Shelter in Place” protocols, such as San Francisco and its surrounding areas, at this time.
