Traveling after the Outbreak: How Cubby Plans to Operate Post-COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 virus continues to wreak havoc across the globe. The total number of cases has already passed three million. And with over 200,000 deaths recorded and more estimated, governments all around are urging citizens to practice social distancing, self-isolation. They have limited unnecessary travel, even if it’s near the vicinity of a person’s home!
As a result, almost all industries have come to a standstill. Offices are closed, and the streets are practically empty. For many businesses, this lockdown has brought disaster. Yet, despite the problems most are facing because of these limitations, many view this pandemic pragmatically.
Clearly, the virus spread because of the lack of initial response. Especially in the travel industry, the COVID-19 pandemic is a lesson for us. One that has taught us how to be better prepared for the future.
How Cubby is Handling Business During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Cubby plays an essential role in the travel industry.
Post-9/11, almost all airports have eliminated short-term luggage storage options and storage lockers for safety reasons. But because of this, travelers on short-term business face a lot of problems finding the right place for storing their hand-carry luggage for a limited time. We provide a useful solution to this predicament!
We offer short-term luggage storage services in several major travel hubs, including Washington D.C., Austin, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Boston, Las Vegas, Galveston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Redwood City. We were dealing with a vast number of travelers, day-in, and day-out, and business was booming before the COVID-19 outbreak.
We’re still offering limited slots for luggage storage; this has allowed us to focus on how we can, be safer as a community.
At present, our storage providers follow all instructions as dictated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We provide affordable online payment options and contactless transactions, so there’s no physical contact at all.
As for our storage areas, they are vetted for hygiene and sanitation. Keep in mind; our storage providers are not your average Joe. We partner with local businesses in the area that have adequate storage space on their property. So, you can imagine they follow all the precautionary steps to keep their facilities as clean as possible. And because they partner with Cubby, they go above and beyond to ensure that your luggage stays safe and sound.
Because of these precautionary steps, we have received positive feedback from many travelers in different cities. So, in keeping with this response, we are discussing implementing all the above measures, indefinitely.
Preparing for the Future
According to the medical community, even if a vaccine is introduced by next year, the global population will still have to practice social distancing and strict hygiene rules for the next two years, stretching it to five.
By practicing the right rules, this will not only assure our customers that their luggage will stay clean, but it’ll also help us do our part in making the world a healthier place. And at the end of the day, that’s all we can ask for!
