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 spend the first day in your new home

Congratulations! You have moved to your new home! And when the dust settles and you wave goodbye to your Miami movers, it is time to decide how to spend the first day in your new home. You have finally reached Miami, the city of your dreams, or just the city where your new workplace is. Whichever way you look at it, the moving process is still not over. You need to unpack all the boxes, set everything up and all of that during the first day. You may think that you have time to unpack everything, but that has the potential to drag out. So, in order to avoid that we have compiled a list of things you should do during the first day in your new home. Let’s dive in!

Take pictures of everything in your new home

This is a must if you are renting a house. It is very important to document the state of your new home in order to avoid unnecessary confrontations with your landlord. If something is broken, snap a photo of that and send everything to your landlord. However, you should take photos of everything, just in case. Better safe than sorry! You know how important this was during your moving process. You needed to snap pics of everything in order to better manage your inventory.

This helps your long distance movers Miami immensely. That is why you need to go into your new home with the same mindset. Your landlord may even request you to send them photos of everything just to clarify the condition of the place. It is also important to have everything documented because of your security deposit. You will not be able to get the full deposit back if something is broken after you move out. 

All the boxes should be in their respective rooms

This is the next step on your list. If you had read our guide on how to create an inventory, you probably know that it is best to label each box by room. This will help you during this step because you will know what box should go where. When your movers Plantation FL unload the truck in your new Miami home, you may even ask them to do the job.

Your mindset is also important. You should know that doing that last push during the moving day will save you a lot of trouble in the following days. We have already mentioned that it can drag out if you do not do everything you can on moving day.

Clean as much as you can

Of course, you will not be able to do a full thorough clean up of your new home. You need to spend the first day in your new home unpacking as well! Do a detailed analysis of your new home and see which places are the dirtiest. Then you should decide which area to clean up. The most important areas are the bathroom, the kitchen, and the bedroom.

You do not want to breathe in that dust that was settling for who knows how long. Especially when you are sleeping and your lungs need more air. The kitchen and the bathroom are also important because they are places of nourishment and hygiene. You cannot have good personal hygiene if the place dedicated to that is dirty. Also, you are risking getting dust in your food if you decide to prepare something after installing some larger appliances.

Placing the most important pieces of furniture

This is a big one. When you finish placing the boxes in the correct rooms, you should place all the important furniture too. This includes the dining table, beds, and other essential furniture that you will need during the first night. When you do this, you can finally sit down and have a cup of coffee and relax. A great way to spend the first day in your new home! However, you are not done yet! Do not let this short break slow down your momentum.

After the coffee break, make sure to unpack the essentials box as well. The essentials box should contain everything that you may need during the first day and night. This includes toothbrushes some towels, diapers if you are moving with a baby, sheets for the first night, a clean change of clothes, and more. A good idea is to pack a box for every family member separately. This will do wonders for your time organization. Just make sure to put them all together so you can unpack them at the same time.

Installing large appliances

If you are moving all your large appliances, this should be the next step on your list. Whether you are doing a local move, or a long distance one, taking your large appliances with you is a hard job. Make sure that you visited the new house at least once prior to the move. This will help you with imagining where to put everything. If you projected where each bigger appliance should be, you can tell your movers to put them there, or at least in the correct room. After this, you should install everything. If you do not know how, make sure to read the instruction manual in order to get an idea. Do not risk doing anything if you are not aware of how it should be done. This way you will risk injuring yourself or your loved ones.

Conclusion

After doing all of this, one of the things you should do right after the move is to make sure to relax. Go outside for a walk, explore your new town and try to find a good place to eat. Meet your neighbors and start planning a housewarming party. Look for nearby parks you can take your kid to. The options are endless! You just need to be organized and not push yourself too hard. If you are exhausted, take a breather and continue after a while. With all that said, good luck with your move!
