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 decorate your Fort Lauderdale home for Christmas

When you move to a new home with the help of your trusty movers in Fort Lauderdale, there are going to be so many “firsts”. Starting from the first night in the new home, to the first meal you prepare in the kitchen, everything is going to feel different. Now that the holidays are approaching, it’s time to decorate your Fort Lauderdale home for Christmas. This time, you can choose to use your old decorations and style, or you can switch it up! If you’re unsure how to decorate your new home for the first time, we’re here to give you a few ideas. Take a look and maybe you’ll get the inspiration you need!

Decorating your house for the holidays isn’t just about the tree – there are plenty of other decorations too!

Decorate your Fort Lauderdale home for Christmas easily

The first step is always getting the decorations. If you chose to use the ones you already own, then it’s time to visit storage Miami and pick them up. Many people leave their seasonal decor in storage units. This saves you so much space in your home, and you are sure the items are completely safe and sound! So get them out, see which ones you want to use and if you maybe want to toss some broken ones. Check if your twinkle lights are working and if any baubles are broken.

Check if any of your old ornaments are broken or if the lights don’t work – if this is the case, it’s time to get new ones!

Now that you’ve reviewed your old decor, you can see if you need to buy something new! If you’ve moved long-distance with the help of a trusty relocation company and now you live in a completely new town, this is a good opportunity to see which stores around you have the best Christmas decorations. However, before you set out to go shopping, think about the color scheme you want to have. This way, you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for once you enter the store. It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed by the tons of Christmas stuff they put out in the stores!

Start by putting up your Christmas tree

Of course, you can’t decorate your Fort Lauderdale home for Christmas without a good tree! You also have two options here – buy a real tree and toss it after the holidays, or get a fake one. There are a few pros and cons to both, but let’s consider the real tree first. The pros are:

  • It smells really good and your whole house will smell like Christmas!
  • You’re being eco-friendly
  • It looks way better overall
  • The experience of picking a Christmas tree with your family is a great tradition to have

However, there are a few cons as well.

  • If you don’t pot it properly, it will wilt soon and many needles will fall out. Stepping on them barefoot is no fun!
  • You have to water it and take more care of it
  • It is seasonal and you have to buy a new one each season

Once you’ve put up your tree and let it shine, you can continue to decorate the rest of your house for Christmas. For instance, we’ll always recommend getting the green garland and putting it on your stairs. Another iconic piece of decor is a wreath for your front door! There are so many ways to decorate your Fort Lauderdale home for Christmas. But the most important thing is to have fun doing it and let it bring the holiday spirit and cheer to your new home. You’ll need it, especially if you’re feeling stressed after moving during the holiday season!
