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!

How to communicate to staff when moving an office

Moving an office is so much different than moving house. There is a lot of responsibility on you as the owner and you have to keep track of more tasks than you would when moving to Florida with your family. Pro Movers Miami are here to show you a few key things to keep in mind when moving your business, but mostly how to communicate to staff when moving an office. No matter if you only have 10 employees or you have a hundred or more, they are all equally important. As the owner, it is your job and responsibility to make sure their needs are met and that communication flows well in your company. So, let’s get started! 

The importance of knowing how to communicate to staff when moving an office

If you do everything properly, office relocation doesn’t have to disrupt your workflow. Learn how to handle it well and your employees will thank you! It’s a challenge and a tough one at that, but it doesn’t have to cause chaos in your workspace. Proper communication will make sure everyone is happy and everyone understands what will have to get done. First things first, inform them of the move on time. That way, they’ll have plenty of time to prepare and ask you questions. In case you prolong this, and rumors start spreading around the office about the move, they may stop trusting you as much as they did.

Let your employees know on time that you will be moving the office – some may not want to move to a new location with you.

Inform them what needs to be done and set clear goals for the future

In case your team needs to help out with the move, let them know but don’t push too hard. Some of them may not have the time to assist you, and that’s okay. If you need extra help during your move, you can always hire office movers Miami and be sure they will do the job right. Additionally, your employees need to know what will be the benefits of this move. You should get them excited about it, by discussing together what your goals can be and maybe even making a countdown to moving day. Little things matter, and small acts of kindness such as thank you messages or a party at your new location can easily lift the spirits of the entire office.

Including your employees in your relocation planning can make a big difference.

Moving your office long-distance may also mean you will lose a few employees. Not everyone will want to uproot their lives and move for a job. Therefore, this is another thing you need to communicate with them before the move. Even moving to a neighboring town may increase someone’s commute and they might resign and find a new position. Be reasonable with your team on this matter – a leader who is supportive is so much more welcome than the one who isn’t.

In the end, moving your office takes a long time and proper planning. Discussing it all with your teammates and employees is crucial for smooth business relocation. It doesn’t have to be hard to move an office, especially not if you get professional help!
