Update from MSS, Sending Care During Uncertain Times

**Please see multiple updated posts on our website and social media, as in 25 days, the information in this post has changed significantly.**
Everyone here at Multi Shelter Solutions is very aware, and sensitive to the global health situation developing. We wanted to update all of our valued customers and potential customers and connections on some situations that have needed to change.
Both the Ottawa Valley Farm Show next week, and the Drayton Farm Show at the end of the month have been cancelled. We are disappointed to lose this opportunity to connect with so many of you that we do every year, but we understand keeping everyone safe and healthy for the present and the future is top priority right now.
At the time of writing there are no disruptions for any of our supplies or parts and if that changes we will keep you updated.
We are taking precautions to keep our employees safe and if they need to take time off due to illness, they will not be penalized or struggle financially due to time off.
We ask that if you have any questions, concerns, We are more than happy and available to answer all questions and concerns over phone, or even an interactive video zoom call if you’d prefer.
We want to remind everyone that what you give your attention and energy to will either improve a situation or make it worse, so it is all of our responsibility and values at this time to focus on being grateful for our health, staying calm and focusing on health and well being for ourselves and all those around us, locally and globally. We have the power to change this narrative and let go of panic and fear and come together to help each other during a challenging time of uncertainty.
Please make sure if you know someone who is immune compromised, that someone is checking on them and helping bring them supplies, as we all need to come together during this time and help each other out as much as possible. Please stay as calm as you can, and try to keep perspective about the situation. We wish everyone reading this all the best health, courage to get through this situation, and our hearts go out to anyone negatively affected by this situation.
We look forward to connecting with you in the future at some of the other exciting shows scheduled for later this year. Thank you for your interest in Multi Shelters, and thank you for allowing us into your inbox and project planning. We look forward to helping you with your 2020 projects!
~Sincerely, Norm & the Multi Shelters Team

Planning Ahead for Savings

One of the things we all struggle with is the number of things on our “to do” list. All of the things we have attached value to and need to be done “soon”.

Many people apologize for how late they have let their structure order go when they do get around to it.

This is just a gentle reminder that the more time you can give us for the structure order, the better we can serve you.

By not bending anything before we get an order, it allows us to customize the profile to your exact specifications.

Not carrying a huge inventory is one way we can keep building and manufacturing costs down. This does mean that we do not ever have buildings “on the shelf”.

There are commodity groups out there (i.e.salt) that have their customers trained to order well in advance to ensure receiving what they need and when.

By giving us the same consideration, we can serve you the same way. When we have orders in advance it allows us to group orders together for delivery, thereby adding to the savings all the customers can appreciate

We look forward to working with you to plan your structure purchase

March Features *So Many Applications! & Who We Are*

If you’re wondering a little bit about Multi Shelter Solutions and who we are, what our values are, and our process to help you find your shelter solution, we wanted to share a few articles this month so you can get to know us.

Why Choose Us?
This page has a bit about Norm’s history and the experience and approach that we have to every project that comes to us from you! It includes our video series on Values as well as a link to the video of Norm’s Greenhouses 101 presentation. “We don’t sell you a greenhouse, we help you buy one!”

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what others are saying!
We have been so grateful for the encouraging words and testimonials that people have shared about their experiences with us, on all our social platforms, on the phone and in emails. We wanted to honour those and share them with you in one place. If you have any to add, feel free to reach out and we will share yours too!

We want to help you find your shelter solution…here’s why!
This page is an overview of why we do what we do and how. Similar to Why Choose Us? it goes into a bit more depth

We have a number of resources on our website to share all the ways and applications which Multi Shelter buildings can be used. Norm has been in the industry for over 45 years and often says there isn’t much he hasn’t seen, and loves the challenge of coming up with new solutions for creative applications.

We have done a flying building to help an apartment building construction, a building over a boat sailing on the St. Lawrence over winter, a round building for a creative workshop area…as well as all the standard uses we have!

Applications Page & Various Ideas and Options

Profiles & Space Requirements
This page discusses the various heights in from the side you can roughly expect from our buildings to help you plan. We don’t bend any steel before we get an order, so this can be slightly adjusted as well if your requirement doesn’t fall within the chart. Please contact Norm for these custom cases we can do, for no additional charge. It also discusses the shapes and pros and cons of each. Stay tuned to this page later this month for a video from Norm explaining this further

We would love to discuss your project with you and how a Multi Shelter can help fit what you need. Have a look around our site for information and pricing, as well as the descriptions of what Multi Shelters values and how we work with you on your project. We look forward to hearing from you!

As part of our new monthly giving back initiative, $240 from structure purchases in February has been donated to Foodbanks Canada

In March we are supporting Breakfast Club Canada with a portion of every purchase

Thank you for helping us make a difference
