Curbside Pickup Helper

With the new provincial guidelines many businesses have been forced to go with curb side pick up. Terry Cormack and his staff at the Palmerston Home Hardware have certainly made the process more pleasant for their customers during the messy weather of the winter months.

We were lucky enough to get our new entrance shelter up yesterday. What a great help for curbside service! With the weather we’ve been getting today, our customers have really appreciated a little shelter! A big shout out to our local manufacturer Multi Shelter Solutions – right here in Palmerston!! Norm Eygenraam and his team at Multi Shelter Solutions put an extra effort into getting the bits and pieces made just before Christmas. And an extra thank you to Norm for his expert guidance with assembly yesterday! I would highly recommend Norm and his team if you are needing a solution to your shelter challenges. Check their shelters out at www.multisheltersolutions.com, or give them a call at 519-343-2335.

This 10’ x 12’ Multi Shelter Solutions building allows customers to wait for their order out of the snow and wind. With this “relative comfort”, it is easier for customers to be patient while the store employees do their best in these challenging times.

With the portability of this unit, when restrictions are lifted, Terry will be able to move the shelter to the back of his property where it can shelter his forklift and other miscellaneous equipment.

  • 10 x 12 x 10’2” — $1050 
  • 16 x 24 x 11’3” — $1875   
  • 20 x 24 x 12’1” — $2200

With the variety of sizes available there is a Curb Side Helper available to suit your requirements. Call or email today to get your custom quote!

Update on Shipping to the USA & Eastern Canada

At this time, with our present workload and the additional border regulations, Multi Shelters is focusing on our Canadian customers for the rest of 2020 and will reassess this position in the new year.

We are grateful for our previous US customers trust in Multi Shelters and hope things settle more for us to be able to serve you again in the future.

This means Multi Shelter Solutions will not be accepting or shipping orders to the USA for the remainder of 2020. Please contact Norm, the owner, if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

For our Canadian customers, you will need to place your order ASAP if you hope to get it before Christmas.

East coast customers, our November truck is already getting filled and we do not plan on another run out your way until the spring. The October truck is full.

This Thanksgiving weekend especially, we want to thank everyone for your trust and continued support of Multi Shelters. We are grateful to be part of so many of your projects this year and beyond.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday

Important COVID-19 Update

A note from Norm and update on COVID-19 protocols

We are grateful that the majority of our customers are working with us to help keep everyone safe. With the recent escalation of numbers of the virus cases, I think that it is prudent to keep our protocols in place at least until Christmas.

As such our office is closed to visitors. All customers will be sent, and required to respond to, our protocol list. This includes customers which we are delivering to and the ones that are picking up.

These are more than suggestions. These are rules which we have in place to help keep our staff and customers safe. Customers who fail to abide by our protocols will be asked to leave the property (pick ups) or the driver leaving the property (deliveries).

We are all in this together and together we will get through it.

Thank you for the opportunity of serving your structure needs in these challenging times.

Covid-19 Update from MSS

It has been a little bit since our last update so we wanted to take a moment to touch base with everyone.

First, we are grateful that we have been able to stay connected with everyone through our website and social media channels throughout this year, especially throughout the pandemic. Thank you for inviting us into your online space so we can stay in touch.

We are also so grateful to everyone who has followed measures set out by our government to help flatten the curve here in Canada, and our hearts go out to those still affected and living with the challenges. Our gratitude also goes out to the front line and essential workers that have stayed the course and helped keep the country, and world, running through these uncertain times.

As things reopen and new stages are approached, we want to remind everyone that we are keeping our office and shop facility closed to public visits for the foreseeable future. This means NO VISITS to Multi Shelters. We are still able to serve you via phone, email, and zoom meetings and tours. Unless you are picking up a prearranged order, if you show up in person, you will be asked to leave.

We also will continue to have the delivery protocols in place, of preparing the delivery area and signing our documentation so our driver is prepared, both when accessing check points, as well as when he arrives at your facility.

We appreciate everyone being mindful of both of these measures to keep everyone safe, and things running efficiently.

As far as we are aware, the annual trade shows we are involved with have all been cancelled, or if moved online, we will not be participating. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in the days to come of ways we are working on to connect with you. We miss being able to chat at trade shows, and have some exciting new things in the works to connect with you and answer any questions you may have.

Thank you again to everyone as we continue to pull through the challenges of 2020. We are grateful to be part of your projects and look forward to working more with you! Stay safe and healthy, connect again soon.

Trade Show & Covid-19 Update 5/26

We received word on Friday that the International Plowing Match in October has been cancelled for 2020. Hastings Plowing Match in August was cancelled earlier. The physical Outdoor Farm Show has been cancelled this week, and they are working to see if they can create a virtual solution. We will keep you updated. Multi Shelters will not be attending the Sheep Classic as originally planned.

We realize that the safety of all employees and visitors is the utmost priority. It still is disappointing since we enjoy meeting interested visitors, answering questions and sharing full examples of our buildings. We look forward to seeing you soon, safely, in the near future.

For the last several months, there have been restrictions on non agricultural buildings being delivered to non agricultural properties. These buildings had been classified as non essential. We are pleased to announce that these restrictions have been lifted and we are now allowed to either deliver these buildings or have customers pick them up.

The protocols which have been implemented to ensure social distancing requirements and the safety of our staff and customers are still very much in place. Each customer is receiving an email approximately one week prior to delivery/pick up, which outlines the requirements and expectations. This must be acknowledged and accepted before delivery/pick is allowed. You can see the example here

We are grateful for the ways that our customers have been working with us to implement all these practices. Please continue to do your part and together we can do this

A Message From Norm

As we start hearing rumblings of there soon to be an ease in restrictions, the times we are in continue to be challenging. As with many other companies, we have had to revise how we do things. Keeping our employees, our customers and our communities safe has been, and is the priority. More then ever before, I find that it is critical that we stay true to our values, our goal is to work with you.

We feel a tremendous sense of gratitude for the ways that customers and prospective customers have responded. There has been a huge spike in interest but also an unprecedented level of understanding and patience. We are in this together.

There are a lot of new opportunities as more people are determined to have more control of their personal food supply. We are grateful that those plans often include a Multi Shelter Solution greenhouse. We are doing our best to keep up with the inquiries while ramping up production. The reality of the situation is that lead times are being extended further then we have ever seen them.

Thank you for the words of encouragement, the level of interest, your patience and the trust you are showing in us with your orders.

Please continue to do your part for everyone’s safety.

Norm
