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.

This is especially relevant if you are about to move! That is why we have created this article. We will talk about some last-minute decluttering before the move. So, if your movers Pompano Beach FL are just around the corner, this is what you need to do to make the whole move weigh and cost less. Without any further ado, let’s dive in!

Let’s define last-minute

Last-minute may mean a couple of things depending on the people you are talking to. To some, two weeks before the move may seem like last-minute. However, other people like to live on the edge and take the phrase last-minute quite literally. In this article, we will talk about decluttering in both of these meanings.

The benefits of decluttering your home

When you think about it, decluttering your home can be very beneficial to you. You will not have to watch your every step when walking through your home and will be able to get anywhere in your home without much of a hassle. Just tell me how many times did you find yourself squeezing into tight spots in your home just because you dropped something that should not even be there. That’s right, the answer is “countless times”.

So, getting rid of some of that stuff will make getting around your home a lot easier. In addition, decluttering your home may also be beneficial to your wallet. There are several ways of disposing of unwanted items and most of them offer monetary compensation. Furthermore, most moving companies give out their estimates based on the weight of your items. So, by decluttering your home before your move to Miami you can even reduce the cost of the whole move! Just think about it!

If you have a week or two before the move – what to do?

So, you have a week or two before your long-distance move. How should you handle the decluttering process? If you have this much time, you will not have to worry about much but only if you are properly organized. Proper organization is vital for everything in life, so why would it not apply to the decluttering process as well? Some people may not deem this last-minute, but the moving process is long and arduous and this is the perfect amount of time you need to successfully declutter your home. Let’s see the options: you can have a garage sale, you can sell the items online, you can rent a storage unit, and you can donate the items. We will now go in-depth about all of these.

Having a garage sale

Having a garage sale is one of the best ways of decluttering your home before the move. This is because you get to sell all of those items that you do not need anymore. Getting rid of extra items AND earning some money in return! It is a win-win situation! A great way to deduct your moving expenses! However, there are a lot of things when it comes to organizing a successful garage sale. For example, advertising is crucial if you want to have a good turnout. It is no use having a garage sale if nobody knows about it.

Advertising your sale

So, when it comes to advertising your sale there are several things you can do to maximize the reach. The first thing you should do is print out flyers and posters. You can then “hire” your kids to go hand them out throughout the neighborhood. You can also do this yourself, and also put up posters on notice boards around your neighborhood. This will let the people living around here know about the sale and they may even share it with their friends. Another thing you can do, which is much more effective, is to create an event on Facebook This will increase the reach by a huge margin! Then you can invite all of your friends, and ask your close friends to share it on their feed. If this works out, you will be amazed by the sheer number of people flocking to your sale!

Selling the items online

This may not be the best option you have when last-minute decluttering your home before the move, but it is worth a shot. Put up your items on a website such as eBay and wait for someone to call you. This will increase the chance that you sell the item because you will have a much larger audience online, but it will also take somewhat longer if you are unlucky. If you are lucky, you may even sell it the day you list it! Think about this option.

Putting things in a storage facility

This is a great thing to do if you do not have a lot of time before your move. Pack everything up and start looking for Miami storage facilities. Rent a storage unit and put everything inside. You can think about what to do with all of these items after your move while everything is in a safe place.

Donating the items

If all else fails, you can always donate the items. Try to “bribe” your friends into helping you with the move by offering free items as payment. You can also give it to your family members. Another option is a donation to charity. There are many charity organizations that know who needs these items the most and are willing to give it to them. So, getting rid of extra stuff, and helping out other people. An amazing trade.

That should be about it when it comes to decluttering your home before the move. With all that said, good luck with your move!
