March, 2021 COVID-19 UPDATE
PARS remains operational with our team members working safely from their homes and with complete access to all PARS technology and systems. We continue to closely monitor the state of COVID-19 and its effects on fleets and business in general given the recent resurgence in COVID-19 cases in many states. While individual states are reintroducing some limitations on business activities, we have not seen an appreciable increase in actions that would inhibit storage facilities, detail shops, and motor vehicle departments, However, any move or service delays in our transport-provided services will be communicated to customers.
***NOTE: IF YOU ARE REQUESTING A TRANSPORT FOR A VEHICLE THAT MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO A DRIVER WITH ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS IT IS IMPERATIVE YOU PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION TO PARS TO ENSURE APPROPRIATE MEASURES ARE TAKEN. ACCORDING TO EXPERTS PUBLISHED IN THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE THE VIRUS THAT CAUSES COVID-19 IS VIABLE UP TO 72 HOURS ON PLASTICS, 48 HOURS ON STAINLESS STEEL, AND 24 HOURS ON CARDBOARD. THIS MEANS ALLOWING A VEHICLE TO SIT FOR 72 HOURS AND THEN CLEANING WITH A SIMPLE DISINFECTANT SHOULD ELIMINATE ANY RISK OF VIRUS TRANSMISSION. IF ALLOWING A VEHICLE TO SIT FOR 72 HOURS IS INFEASIBLE OR CONCERNS REMAIN, PARS NOW OFFERS AN ONSITE (AT YOUR FLEET DRIVER?S LOCATION FOLLOWING VEHICLE DELIVERY) SPECIALIZED DISINFECTING SERVICE. THIS SERVICE IS AVAILABLE IN BOTH THE US AND CANADA. PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO?INFO@PARSINC.COM?SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS SURROUNDING THIS SERVICE.***
