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 deduct business moving costs

Moving your business can be quite challenging. Even though you hope you would make more profit if you move your business to another state or city, nothing is for certain. However, there are ways to deduct business moving costs in order to save as much money as possible. The first thing you should do is to hire a good moving company. This is extremely important if you wish you have a successful relocation. For this reason, contact Pro Movers Miami and set your moving date. As for the rest, here are all the things that are deductible. 

Relocation expenses and employees 

First of all, you need to think about your employees. Are they moving with you or are they staying? If there are relocating as well, it is your responsibility to reimburse your employees for moving expenses. This might seem like you would spend more money than you want. However, you should include the amount of these reimbursements as a taxable benefit to the employees. All the commercial movers Miami will tell you to do the same because this is beneficial for your business. 

Employees can deduct certain moving expenses from their taxes. However, this is only applicable if you reimburse your employees for moving expenses. This means the company should pay formulas, hotel, moving vans, packing or unpacking, moving quotes Miami, and so on. If you pay any of these, you can deduct them from the company taxes. You should know that an employee cannot deduct any moving expenses from their personal income tax because they will be paid by the company.
