Please rest assured that Merritts are following all Government guidelines to ensure we can work safely during the coronavirus pandemic. The safety of our staff and customers is of paramount importance and we are currently implementing a number of measures in order to continue to safely carry out work for our customers throughout these difficult times.

COVID-19 Update | Merritts

These measures include:

  • All operatives to travel in separate vehicles
  • Following the 2m social distancing guideline
  • Wearing of face masks if required
  • Washing hands/using hand sanitizer on a regular basis
  • Gloves to be worn at all times
  • Food to be eaten alone

As you will be aware, when a factory is closed it is the ideal opportunity to carry out production line changes as it does not interrupt productivity and factories are usually empty of people.

For as long it is safe to do so, we will continue to help our clients carry of heavy machine moving projects as we believe this will help manufacturers to resume production as quickly and efficiently as possible as soon as these restrictions are lifted.

Rest assured that if it is not possible to provide the safest working environment for all persons concerned, we will not carry out the work.

Merritts are Safe Contractor accredited and offer a free advice and site visits within the UK as part of our process.

If you are considering a heavy machinery removal, relocation or installation project, need to temporarily store new or redundant heavy machinery, or simply need space to lift machinery to carry out servicing and maintenance please get in touch.

We’ll be back soon with more updates, but until then you can follow us on LinkedIn for more regular news from our team.
