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. Should you need to reach us directly, please feel free, Text is always the quickest, and we are literally her for you 24/7.

Thank you, be well and stay healthy!

Eco-friendly storage tips and guide

Renting a storage unit is definitely a great solution if you lack storage space in your home. There are so many options out there, and you are bound to find one that suits your needs. Nowadays, storage units Miami are perfectly safe and very affordable, so there is no reason not to rent one! If you want to go green, then you’ll definitely benefit from the eco-friendly storage tips we have prepared. Why not try to save our planet one step at a time, and make a little bit more effort to be eco-friendly even when renting storage?

Even when using cardboard boxes, you can find ways to be eco-friendly when renting storage.

The only eco-friendly storage tips you’ll need

First things first, you have to make sure you rent the proper kind of storage. There are a few different ones out there. When you’re moving to Florida from a different state, you may not be able to visit them in person, but you should do a lot of research online. There are plenty of reviews and maybe even virtual tours so you can clearly get the picture of what you’re renting. Consider renting a climate-controlled unit. This way, your items will stay safe and won’t get any moisture damage. If you have to throw them away, they will end up in a landfill. That is definitely not what we want!

Secondly, consider using the packing materials you already have in your home. Instead of buying brand new cardboard boxes and plastic bins, reuse your suitcases and bins that you won’t bring to your new home. You can apply these tips even when you’re packing to move to Miami! Furthermore, you can substitute packing peanuts with blankets, towels, and linen to keep your fragile belongings safe and sound. Whether it is during transport, or in a storage unit, these will do the job just right and you won’t be creating more waste!

Even your old suitcases can serve as storage bins, so you don’t have to buy new boxes.

Reuse, reduce, recycle!

In case you really need to use a lot of cardboard, make sure you recycle it once you no longer need it. If your moving company Fort Lauderdale also uses packing paper to protect your items, you can recycle it as well. By recycling as many materials as you can, you are reducing the landfills and helping our planet breathe one step at a time. 

Other items you can reuse are pallets. If you didn’t know, when placing your items in storage, you should always keep them elevated from the ground. This means that wooden pallets are perfect for this situation. However, there is no need to buy new ones! Many businesses tend to throw them away after receiving their goods, so they might even want to give you some for free. That way, you’ll save money and save the environment in one go!
