COVID-19 UPDATES

PARS remains operational with all office staff telecommuting. We continue to closely monitor the state of COVID-19 and its effects on transportation and related services as recently, in the midst of continued national reopening, a significant spike in COVID-19 cases has been realized in the United States. Individual states are already announcing new measures to combat this spike, which, along with remaining limitations at some business such as storage facilities, detail shops, and motor vehicle departments, create the potential for case-by-case delays. Any move or service delays continue to 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.***

Of course, like all businesses concerned about employee safety and social responsibility, PARS will adhere to all COVID-19 associated governmental directives and CDC safety recommendations. However, our experienced team will review thoroughly and recommend any possible alternative strategies in order to obtain the best results for our customers.

As circumstances change, we will keep you up to date on the impact on service availability. Of course, you can continue to check on your projects through the PARS customer portal, or contact your PARS account person. If you have specific questions around license & titling please email DMV@parsinc.com Any other questions can be directed to dispatch@parsinc.com. Our phone number is being closely monitored so you can expect a timely call back if you leave a message.
