Our Blog and Annual Updates
Although our website said we were closed and our phone message said we were closed, we haven't really stopped working this fall. With no summer staff we've kept it limited but we've continued to make deliveries for our homeowner clients and a few intrepid customers who ignored our phone message. Ha-ha!
Typically we re-open our website to new orders in early January. This year we've decided to open it early. All orders placed between now and January 15th, 2022 will received 2021 pricing.
Our official 2022 Season Opening date is May 7th. But, I'm sure we'll be working before that. For earlier deliveries, email or call for availability.
Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Happy New Year! We are currently closed for our winter break but our online store is open for reservations and we are ready to deal with whatever the 2021 season wants to throw at us.
We are planning to open earlier this year than normal. Official Opening date is May 1st. Call for availability for earlier deliveries.
We are once again offering our bedmaking service that was suspended during the 2020 season. We expect that we will need to limit the number of homes that we can do on any given Saturday even more than usual so we suggest booking early if you'd like that service.
All of the other details about our cleaning processes (detailed below) are the same as they were last year. We will continue to maintain our high standards of cleanliness.
Stay safe and well! See you in the spring!

We are excited that rentals on the island are scheduled to begin again June 1st. We will be starting our delivery service for the 2020 Season on that date as well
At this time, we are only taking orders for our lovely contactless delivery service. We are not taking any new bed-making orders at this time.
We have added several new "Bedding Basics" packages to accomodate both homeowners and renters given that rental homes will not be coming with blankets or pillows this year. We have also added slip covers to our rental offerings for those who would like to add a fresh and clean layer to the home's sofas and loveseats durign their stay.
Like most everyone on the island right now, we are playing a waiting game to see when the shore will re-open to visitors. But we’re not waiting on researching, planning and making decisions on how to proceed with the utmost caution and safety for our customers and staff.
@Shore Service has always had extremely high standards for cleanliness. Our linens, blankets and towels are professionally laundered. They are sanitized to E.P.A. accepted standards, washed at 160°F, given a cat-ionic charge using chemical bonding and are certified by our laundry to remain 99.9% bacteriostatic and self-sanitizing for 90 days.
Our bins have always been washed and sanitized between customers but out of an abundance of caution we will be adding another step to the process. After the usual wash and sanitizing we will be using a commercial hospital grade anti-viral/anti-bacteria disinfectant spray on every bin and lid.
We will be using the same disinfectant spray on all of our beach equipment every week between customers.
Most of our customers already use our no-contact delivery service where we leave our items on the porch of the rental home. When it is safe for us to begin entering homes again for our bed-making clients, we will do so, as always, with the utmost of care and safety. We will wear masks, gloves and booties. We will touch only what is absolutely necessary in the house to complete our task and we will wipe down anything that we touch with disinfectant on our way out.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any specfic questions for us.
