Rideshare drivers are continually putting their lives at risk in order to do their jobs and help people get from point A to point B. So to those of you that are on the roads driving right now, thank you!
Today I wanted to give you a heads up though on an exciting new promotion. Barrier by REEF—the largest operator of mobility, logistics hubs, and neighborhood kitchens—is offering up sanitization services to help get drivers back on the road in the safest way possible.
At 6 NYC locations, Barrier by REEF is offering a bundle that would include full sanitization of your vehicle plus personal protective equipment (PPE) — including 3 masks, 2 pairs of gloves, and 1 hand sanitizer—for just $25.
Maybe you’ve been driving all along, or maybe you’re thinking about driving again, but you’re not sure how you can do it safely. With the sanitization bundle offered by Barrier by REEF, you can feel safe getting back on the road again.
Barrier by REEF is currently open for business and offering these sanitization bundles at:
- 60 East 12 St. Manhattan, New York, NY
- 92-77 Queens Blvd, Queens, Rego Park NY
- 343 4th Ave. Brooklyn, NY
- 1199 Park Ave, Manhattan, New York, NY
- 200 W 79th St, Manhattan, New York, NY
- 450 E 79th St, Manhattan, New York, NY
Each time your vehicle is sanitized at a participating Barrier by REEF location, you’ll know that it’s being cleaned following the Centers for Disease Control guidelines with EPA-approved, non-toxic sanitizer that dries quickly and is designed to kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses.
The technicians cleaning your vehicle will also be using professional equipment and PPE to keep everyone safe during the process. Included with the service is a sticker you place in the window that shows off to your passengers that you got your vehicle sanitized at Barrier by REEF, so they know they are getting into a vehicle that cares about their health and safety. It’s also a great way to show your passenger you’re going the extra mile for them and could lead to higher tips.
[Sticker will be available starting 7/27/20]
With this bundle, you’ll be saving yourself the hassle of constantly trying to sanitize your vehicle on your own and taking time out of your day to go shopping for basic PPE material that you need on a regular basis. Plus, your passengers will see the validation sticker and know they are safe from germs when entering your vehicle. Give them and yourself peace of mind.
Get your car professionally sanitized and no matter what, you’ll know it’s ready for anything, including reducing the spread of airborne germs. I’d recommend doing this service weekly to make sure you’re staying safe.
Simply sign up for the sanitization service, schedule your appointment and get your car sanitized at a Barrier by REEF location near you.
