The Right Note COVID19 Virus pandemic strategy

The Right Note is thinking of our clients, at this time, as we enter uncharted territory for us all. The virus has forced us to re-think how we do things. We are still open for business and we will continue to use Australia Post to pick up and make deliveries.

We are self-isolating and working from home and can offer our full range of sales and valuations. For International orders, we use Fed Ex with their international safety protocols

Currently, we are adhering to all government recommended social distancing and hygiene procedures.

  • To ensure safety for all staff and customers, our small team have completed the Australian Department of Health short course for Covid19 Infection Control Training.
  • In this interim period, we offer all TRN clients our full support.
  • Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any queries.
  • Please stay safe.

Kind regards

Richard Fahy
