Coronavirus Update Monday 3/23/20

For all locations: “Drive Thru” Customer pick up procedures remain in effect

Similar to Starbucks and other businesses, we will be operating in our version of “Drive Thru” mode until further notice. These measures are being taken to protect teammates and customers from the risks of contracting and spreading the coronavirus.

The following procedures are effective immediately:

  • All orders must be placed by email, fax or phone. No orders will be taken in-person.
  • Please place orders 24 hours in advance
  • Customers must call before coming to pick up an order to verify that the order is staged and ready to be picked up.
  • Customers are to remain near their vehicles and an SFD team member will come to you. Please do not walk around our yard or approach the buildings.
  • Customers are not allowed in the office. The doors will be locked.
  • Customers are not to enter the warehouse areas
  • Customers will not be required to sign for orders picked up or delivered. An SFD team member will write down the name of the person receiving the material and provide a packing list.
  • Restrooms will be restricted to employee use only.
  • For pick up COD customers, you will be able to pay for your orders over the phone at the time of order, before you leave or provide a check to the SFD yard person.

With these safety procedures in place, we intend to continue to be your most reliable supplier. We ask that you share this email with anyone in your company that may interact with Sharon Fence Distributors and we thank you in advance for your cooperation with these procedures.
