Please help us to serve you better by observing the following requests when possible.

Please prioritize scheduling requests
When possible please have your shipments ready in advance and moved to the designated pickup location at your facility to reduce our drivers need to enter your building.
Medical Equipment customers will need to provide current decontamination statements prior to scheduling a pickup and please alert your Account Manager if your facility is actively caring for infected patients.

As always, thank you for being a loyal customer. We will continue to closely monitor the situation, stay focused on keeping our employees and communities healthy, and providing you the support you need. If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to discuss them with your Account Manager or Customer Service Representative.
