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!

Renting a storage unit

You might think that we are suggesting you rent a storage unit, as some sort of spiel for you to hire us. However, let us assure you that, that is not the case.

If you rent a storage unit you can rest assured that your belongings are under lock and key.

If you are looking for the option that will give you the biggest bang for your buck, then renting a storage unit is definitely the one.

Store items during a home renovation: alternative options.

If you plan to move to Miami then you might want to skimp on as many expenses as you can. That’s when options like renting a storage unit are not so readily available. You might be interested in some other avenue that offers that same result for less money.

At the end of the day, you can always give your friends a ring and ask them for help.
  • Appoint a room for storage in your home. It is definitely a cheaper option if you have the room in your home for it. It could be probably the cheapest option of all. However, most people do not have this commodity. That’s why we often recommend the second option for them. And that is…
  • Store your items at a relatives’ house. You might not have the free space to store your items in your new home… However, there might be some relatives you know that have such a thing. It might be worth asking around, you might never know who might take you up on the offer.

So what’s the best way to store items during a home renovation?

Well, there are a number of methods. However, our top recommendation is that you get a moving container. Your best bet would probably be to get a portable storage moving container, as they are a much cheaper, and safer option than anything else on the market. However, if you don’t want to pay any money for storage there are a number of ways you can store your items during home renovations. For example, you could ask your friends or family members to lend you some free space if they have some. Or you might even designate one room from your home exclusively for storage.
