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 reduce downtime when moving a business to Miami

Moving a business to Miami can be a complicated endeavor, with plenty of downtimes, there is no going around that. However, you can influence it in various ways if you want to waste as little time as possible. The first, and the most important, thing is that you need to hire a mover well ahead of time. You might think that there are many Miami movers out there and that you will be able to find one for your move in the blink of an eye. But the reality says otherwise. Other than that, you will need to prepare your employees for the move, as well as being prepared to allow some work from home.

Oh, and try to keep everyone in the loop, at all times. This article will go into a bit more detail, though, so you have all you need to make the relocation as efficient as possible!

Tips to reduce downtime when moving a business to Miami

To sum it all up, here is what you will need to do:

  • Plan ahead and book a mover during the off-peak season
  • Have your employees prepared
  • If possible, be ready to work from home
  • Keep everyone updated

Obviously, your business may have other important factors that you need to consider as well. Try to tackle them as you go along and always anticipate where the problems may lie. Hiring Kendall movers early is all good and fine, but if you are unsure about the date, you might want to change your strategy. Adaptability is key here.

Plan ahead and book a mover during the off-peak season

Alright, we’ve said this two times already. That should tell you how important booking a mover early is. Especially if you plan on hiring your commercial movers in the middle of the moving season. Avoiding downtimes is all about making everything you can as reliable as you can. And hiring early will all but guarantee the date that you want.

Have your employees prepared

This is, perhaps, one of the best ways to avoid any downtimes when relocating your business. The fact of the matter is that most downtime will come when your employees are involved. Therefore, you will want to prepare them for the move to the best of your ability. Look into storage services if need be, and into other solutions as well. The better you prepare your staff for the move, the easier it is going to be.

If possible, be ready to work from home

And speaking of employees, you may want to enable some of them to work from home for the time being. This can reduce your downtime significantly. People need to adjust to their new lives, after all, and allowing them to work from their own homes is the right call to make. If you want to reduce the time it takes for them to readjust, obviously.

Keep everyone updated when moving a business to Miami

The last tip that we have for you is to constantly update your staff on relocation matters. This is really important as you don’t know all the circumstances in your employee’s lives. By providing them with updates, you will be allowing them to adjust better to their new situation. When moving a business to Miami, try to update weekly, at the least.
