Have To Move In The Midst Of A Shelter-In-Place Order

TAMPA, FL – College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, the leading moving and junk removal company known for delivering on its strong promise to provide trust & care, continues to provide a safe option for those who must move during shelter-in-place and stay-at-home orders. For individuals who were in the process of buying a new home, experiencing lease endings, or relocating for school of job opportunities, finding a way move posed as an unexpected challenge. However, with the safety precautions companies such as College HUNKS are taking, customers can still be provided the essential moving services needed for a stress-free move.

As a national transportation, logistics and waste hauling company, College HUNKS trucks and teams are assisting moving; junk pickup; transportation of needed supplies; warehousing and storage; bulk trash and dumpster alternatives; waste and refuse disposal; and delivery of goods to businesses and homes.

“In most areas, we are still operating as an essential business under the Transportation & Logistics sector and we feel a responsibility to serve our customers in this time of need. We are privileged to be able to ease the stress of clients who would be stranded without our help,” says Nick Friedman, co-founder and president of College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving.

College HUNKS has also added an express curbside pickup option for those who want to get rid of extra items while they are spring cleaning while quarantining, but don’t want to come into contact with others. They can pay by phone and leave their items outside for pickup.

The company is also taking safety precautions to ensure the health of their team members and clients, following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) measures and has instituted employee temperature checks and is disinfecting their trucks after each job. “We value the safety of each of our clients and team members,” said Omar Soliman, co-founder and CEO of College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving. “Beyond monitoring the situation and consulting with local public health officials, we have protocols in place, which mandate that every franchise across the country practices new safety measures such as eliminating our daily team huddles.”
