Welcome to ‘EQ NOW’ an original EventQuip Series providing tips and information on how to utilize safe tenting and event rentals for you and your business, while continuing in the fight against Coronavirus.
Social Distancing is a top priority for businesses eager to reopen after mandatory COVID-19 closures. In order to continue to flatten the curve and stop the spread of Coronavirus small business owners must prepare to protect their employees’ health and safety in the workplace, as well as the surrounding community. Properly implementing social distancing via tenting and structures in businesses is a necessary strategy to reduce opportunities for the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
Utilizing the use of tents and structures for curbside pickup or as a drive-thru service is a safe way to practice social distancing, keep employees safe and protected from the elements and keep your business running. Additionally, utilizing tents and structures for curbside or drive-thru options will help your business be easier to find, signal that you are open for business and proactively protecting your employees and community.
A key to success for business curbside pickup or drive thru services is to implement tents and/or structures in a space that can maximize your business while keeping everyone safely socially distanced. If there is access to the back of the building or loading dock area, it may behoove you to install the structure in this area. If your storefront has passenger loading/unloading in front of your storefront and the tent would provide better visibility of the store, the front of the store may be the best option. Utilizing a tent or structure simultaneously in the front and the back of the business could potentially allow you to do more business and expand your market—at an acceptable social distance.
There is no limit to what type of business could take advantage of tent and structure drive-thru and curbside pickup. If you are a company that provides a service that requires your customer to come into your storefront—you are a company that could benefit from a curbside or drive thru tent. Restaurants are a common industry that have taken advantage of pickup and drive-thru structures. However, businesses such as: pet stores, home improvement stores, nurseries, flower shops, grocery stores, retail stores, automotive parts, bicycle shops and coffee shops are just a few examples of businesses that could benefit from social distancing business tents.
