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!

Home security features to look for when buying a house in Miami

Choosing the proper home security features is key to feeling safe and secure. According to Miami Dade Police Department, there have been around 4,336 burglaries in Miami County this year. If you want to stay on the right side of that statistic, we here at Miami movers present the following key security features you should keep your eye on.

Home security features: digital vs. landline

There are two different types of home security systems you can install. Digital or landline. Both have benefits and drawbacks.

Having multiple locks is a great and cheap way to improve the security of your home.
  1. Landline-based security system. This security system relies on sending alerts through your land-line. In case of a power outage, there are backup batteries in place. The drawback of this method is that it’s hard to install. You will probably need professional help. Other than that, having a landline-based security system is a great way to keep your home safe!
  2. Wireless security system. When you move to Miami another really popular security system you are going to see is the wireless security system. The main benefit is that it’s easy to install and it allows for 24/7 surveillance over your phone. However, unlike landline-based security systems, the wireless security system requires an internet connection. That means that in case of power outages you won’t be able to send or receive any reports.

What to look for in a security system?

If you want to maintain security we recommend you choose a security system which offers the following options:

Having your entire security system only one click away is a feature you definitely need to have.
  • Monitoring. We recommend you look out for security systems that offer monitoring support. This means that in case of an emergency, a team of professionals will be dispatched to alert your relatives, and call the authorities if need be.
  • Mobile app. Having the ability to have your security system at your fingertips is an offer that is hard to pass on. If you opt for this option you’ll be able to control your security system from your phone. Push notifications will also alert you once one of the system sensors has been triggered. Which can be quite a useful tool to have.
  • Quick, easy, and to the point. You don’t want an overcomplicated convoluted security system. When push comes to shove you need to know exactly where the panic button is and be able to push it fast.
  • Design. After all the above checkboxes are ticked and you are still not sure what security system to pick, we recommend subscribing to the one you like the design of. At the end of the day, you are the one who is going to be living in the home with it. So make sure it fits your home well.

Hopefully the next time you hire Miami Beach movers and decide to relocate to Miami… You’ll know exactly what to look for in a security system.
