In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and being deemed “essential business” by the governor of the state of Florida, we want to assure you, our loyal customers, that Pro Movers Miami has, and always will,put the safety of our team and that of our customers first and foremost. We are committed to following all best practices and guidelines for sanitation and for cleanliness, and are taking all of the necessary precautions as we proceed to service your move. To that end, extensive measures are being taken wherever possible to combat the spread of this virus, while still being safe and efficient as we continue to provide you with the first-class, five star moving experience that you have come to expect of us. Here are some of the proactive measures we’ve implemented and will continue to implement:

  • All estimates are being provided over the phone, virtually, on-line or via email until further notice.
  • Pre-move wellness checks for both our customers and our crew members, where all will be asked to advise us if you feel ill or suspect exposure to the virus. For our movers it would be mandatory that they stay home, and for our customers, moving services can be rescheduled, postponed or cancelled to mitigate risk, should that be necessary.
  • Our crews are equipped with gloves, disinfectant sprays/wipes and hand sanitizer for your protection and theirs.
  • We have put into effect social distancing measures, and although we have always valued the professionalism and respect that comes along with a good introductory handshake and a departing thank you, we ask for your understanding that for the safety and well-being of everyone, there’ll be no handshake or touching of any kind.
  • Upon arrival, our crew will still introduce themselves, walk through the home with appropriate social distance, begin to protect the home with all safeguards like floor runners, and door jams (as they always do), but in addition we ask you now (with all due respect), to please give them the appropriate space they need to safely and efficiently service your move and allow them space to do their job.
  • When available and appropriate, open doorways and windows to increase air circulation and ventilation.
  • We are also taking measures to sanitize the cabs and boxes of our trucks, as well as all blankets, pads, tools and equipment after each and every move to reduce any risk of cross-contamination.
  • It is our hope and our expectation that you will take the same precautionary measures that we are taking, and that will also sanitize and wipe down any and all exposed surfaces and furniture prior to our arrival. Anything that you can do to help keep our working conditions safe and sanitary for our men, is equally appreciated.
  • Owners / office staff will be working around the clock from home with complete access for our team and our customers via phone, email and text.

Again, thank you for choosing Pro Movers Miami, it is our sincere pleasure to serve you. Our Promise to you, and no matter what circumstances, is to continue to deliver the 5 stars moving service that our customers depend on.

Big moving day mistakes to avoid

Moving is a difficult process. There are so many things you have to worry about. Things such as scheduling everything, packing, getting reliable movers in Fort Lauderdale are all things that can make your moving process hard. In addition, hard things are usually prone to getting harder if you do not pay attention to how you do them. Mistakes are common in moving and you should not be offended if you find yourself doing them. There is still time to correct it! In this article, we will talk about big moving day mistakes you should do everything you can to avoid. So, without any further ado, let’s dive in!

Moving day mistakes – what’s to know?

When it comes to moving mistakes, we will now start talking about them in-depth. Do not think that you got everything covered. Read this article just in case and you may read something new. So, let’s see what are the most common moving day mistakes!

Do not worry, everyone makes mistakes!

You need to start on time

One of the biggest moving mistakes is when you do not start preparing for the moving process on time. It has been statistically proven that doing things in a hurry is reducing the quality of the things in question. If you have an assignment, start doing it on time and do not postpone it. You may end up with just two days to prepare your whole house for moving.

Packing can be really hard and you want to do everything correctly so do not wait! There have even been situations when moving companies Plantation Florida come to a house and the customers did not even start to pack.  While this is okay if you had requested packing services from the moving company, if you did not, this will be the rise of a plethora of problems. So, start preparing for your move on time and avoid doing things in a hurry!

Not getting a reliable moving company

Many people get lured by a cheap price some moving companies offer. However, moving is not that cheap. This means that many too-good-to-be-true prices may very well be a scam. Scamming companies have many methods of baiting customers into their web of lies. Cheap prices are just one way. They can even leave fake reviews on websites such as BBB and Yelp and therefore boost their rating on the platform. They may not even be scammers. The movers may very well just be irresponsible. They can get your items and stack them in a way that half of your fragile items break.

Scamming companies also like to take your items hostage. This means when they take your stuff and do not want to deliver it to the destination because you have not “allegedly” paid the full price of the move. This includes hidden prices that they conveniently do not mention. This can make your move very costly so make sure you get a certified moving company. Check out BBB, and only call the companies with the BBB Seal of Approval. These companies are reliable and trustworthy and will not even think of scamming you.

Checking your insurance

There is a big chance that something will break during the move. This may not be your or your movers’ fault. But, whoever’s fault it is, it got broken and you wonder who is going to pay back for it. Your moving company will surely not if their insurance policy does not cover it. That is why you need to ask them about their insurance policy before the move. This will help avoid disputes with movers. They will probably weigh the broken item and then give a fixed amount for the number of pounds the item weighs. Today’s TVs are very lightweight, so this will probably not cover the full price, and you will have to get another one.

If you ask your moving company about their insurance policy they may offer full coverage for a higher price. This is totally worth it because you will get full coverage without having to check with your insurance company if they cover moving mistakes. So, one of the most common moving day mistakes is not checking your insurance policy. If the movers’ additional price for insurance is too high, you better check with your insurance company and get things settled with them. Better safe than sorry!

Not packing properly

The previous paragraph was dealing with situations when your movers make a mistake and break your item. However, your tv can also break if you do not pack it properly. Packing is a very important part of the moving process and it is vital to pack everything correctly. You need to get a lot of packing supplies and not be afraid to use them. If you use up all of them and you did not pack everything, go and buy more! It is better to spend a bit more cash on packing supplies than risking something breaking during the move.

right and wrong
There are two ways to do things, right and wrong!

In addition, getting the wrong type of boxes and not labeling them properly can also lead to damage to your items. When getting boxes, make sure to get different sized boxes. This will lead to great space efficiency when your movers pack the truck. They will use the bigger boxes packed with bulkier items as the foundation for the smaller and lighter boxes. They will also be able to fill in the gaps with smaller boxes and therefore prevent any sort of tumbling inside the truck. We call this the “Tetris” technique, and not using it is one of the biggest moving day mistakes you can make.
