Aloha Partners:

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our state, Governor Ige has expanded the mandatory 14-day quarantine for air travel to include all inter-island passengers. Inter-island trips are from one Hawaiian Island to another, for example Oahu to Kauai, or from Maui to the Big Island. This new mandate will go into effect Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 12:01 a.m. and extend through April 30, 2020. The quarantine does not apply to essential workers or to flight crews; however; those who do fly inter-island are being asked to wear protective equipment.

We continue to adjust our business processes and procedures. New Delivery and Will-Call procedures for freight will be implemented in order to follow Social Distancing Guidelines.
The safety of our employees, our customers, and families is our top priority. If you are impacted by COVID-19 thru illness, quarantine, or other circumstance please reach out to our offices and we will work with you to find a solution for your situation.

During this emergency we remain committed to fulling our responsibilities to our clients, and for the safety and welfare to our employees, their families and you, our customers.

We are very much open for business and will continue to serve and support you.

In line with Social Distancing guidelines, we are instructing our employees to work from home where possible, and to only come into the office if necessary. For job functions that qualify to work remotely, our staff will be set up to respond to their normal company email accounts, access our internal systems, and receive calls to their normal extensions. While we transition to this plan, we anticipate we may experience some delay in our responses. If this occurs, please direct a follow-up email to info@royalhawaiianmovers.com, and we will route the request accordingly.

For many of our employees, working remotely is not an option, as their job duties are hands on and are performed in our warehouses and out in the field.    In these instances, we have instructed the staff to take extra precautions when interacting with the customer, for everyone’s safety.   There may be instances where we feel it may be unsafe to proceed with services and will work with you to find a solution on a case-by-case basis.

We will also be posting to our website, www.RoyalHawaiianMovers.com, and social media sites any updates to our operating status.
