Year End Reflections

To all our valued customers, potential customers, and followers,
A Letter From Norm, owner/manager

As 2019 comes to a close and I reflect on all that we as Multi Shelter Solutions have been able to accomplish, we indeed have a tremendous amount to the thankful for.

It is especially gratifying for all of the opportunities to serve our customer’s structure needs, help people figure out their challenges and hear positive responses.

We continue to receive a lot of inquiries as a result of customers recommending us to their neighbours and colleagues. For that we are also tremendously grateful.

2019 has been a year of significant change at Multi Shelter Solutions from a staff perspective. Gwen went into semi retirement in March and Kelly took over in the office. Kelly has been quick to learn and up to the challenge of handling many of the customer requests to the point that it was necessary to hire an additional person for the office. Many of you have been greeted by Maggie when you call. She has also been packing the hardware portion of the orders and handling items that are shipped via courier. We are looking at adding another person to the shop force in the spring to ensure that orders continue to be shipped promptly as Maggie expands her duties as well.

As we reflect on 2019, we also reflect on what we can do better. We intend to upgrade our assembly instructions based on the questions and feedback that we have received. We are going to have a more formal plan in place to thank those who do refer others to Multi Shelter Solutions and we are going to donate a portion of each structure order to a chosen charity each month. We will be posting these on our website with something about them. This is in part to our commitment of giving back .

Teaching customers and prospective customers has always been a priority at MSS, as well as a value of myself. We are intending to increase the videos and other interactions to make information available in a timely fashion. We welcome feedback so that we can do even better.

Have a wonderful Christmas season and we wish you a very prosperous New Year.

On behalf of the staff at Multi Shelter Solutions, we look forward to working with you more in 2020!

Christmas Project

Every year we love to draw attention to this wonderful project in Milton that we were able to be part of. Please, if you can stop by and donate, we encourage you to do so. Magical Lights of Milton has raised almost $45,000 to date for the Milton Hospital. Congratulations Geall Family!

We’ve had the opportunity to work with David Geall on a Christmas lights fundraiser display “Magical Lights of Milton” for the Milton District Hospital Foundation and the results have been wonderful! Please be sure to stop by and check it out and donate to their great cause. Check out David’s testimonial Click on the pics below to enlarge

Putting up Structures after the Snowfall

There always seems to be so much pressure and panic at this time to get a building before winter. The only thing that is important to get done sooner then later is the foundation work. There will be lots of decent weather days between now and Christmas to get the job done.

If you think that it is too late to get it done and you will simply wait until next spring, please remember that you said the same thing last spring (or even a few months ago) and as usual the busyness of life got in the way. Give us a call today to see how you can get that foundation taken care of before freeze up.

For those of you who want to get the structure up now and cover it in the spring, I urge you to cover the building sooner then later for a couple of reasons. First is that there will be lots of other things vying for your time in the spring and secondly, the more snow you have on that spot which has to melt, the more moisture you will have in the building. The more moisture you have in the building the more condensation issues you will have. You want to give that ground the most time possible to dry up before you need to start using the building.

In my humble opinion, even though putting the cover on in late fall or early winter is more difficult and not pleasant, the benefits of having more time for the ground to dry, far outweigh the time spent to adjust the cover  in the spring
