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 prepare your employees for a business move?

Moving a business isn’t the same as moving your home. Both moves are complicated and difficult in their way. However, moving your home will only affect you and your family. While on the other hand, moving your business will also affect the lives of your employees. Commercial movers Miami can help you with moving the office equipment, but it’s on you to prepare your employees for a business move. It’s important that your business and employees don’t suffer due to the relocation. You can achieve this with good organization and communication. With good teamwork, your business can overcome any obstacle including relocation. 

Take time to prepare your employees for a business move 

When you are planning the details of your business relocations, inform your employees about the move. You should organize a meeting with your employees. Inform them about the details of the move, the reason behind it, how it is going to affect the business, and which Pro Movers Miami you will hire. Additionally, listen about their concerns and show that you care about them. Let them know that this decision wasn’t made in one day. 

When you need to relocate a business with many employees, you shouldn’t try to do move all by yourself. Instead, you should create a plan where every employee is involved in the move and has their duty. For example, one employee should notify clients, while the other should contact movers Coral Gables Florida, etc.

Create a good working environment during the relocation 

Moving is often stressful, and you don’t want to create a stressful environment in the workplace. You need to try to maintain a healthy working relationship with colleagues and employees. You can achieve this by cutting up a workload at the most stressful time to give them time to get used to the idea of moving. Make sure everyone knows their role, and keep them regularly updated about the move. 

Before you start packing and moving IT equipment, you should visit the new office space. You can take a couple of your employees with you to see a new office space. Take pictures or make a video tour. To make a transition easier, you can let employees choose the color and design of your new office.

How to convince your employees to stay with you? 

Not all employees will be happy with the new situation. A new address might mean a longer commute, having two or more bus changes, etc. When you need to prepare your employees for a business move, it can be hard. Sometimes also means convincing them to stay with you after the relocation. For this reason, you can do the following.

  • Offer a pay raise – A pay raise is the best stimulus you can offer to your employees to stay with you. 
  • Offer Equity – In some cases, it’s not rare for owners to offer shares to employees, so they can have enough voting shares. 
  • Show positive sides of relocation – Point out that with relocations, the business will have more space, better location, or more clients.
