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!

Legal facts about renting an apartment in Miami

When it comes to moving, the choice is either to rent out or to buy a property. Most of us are not in the position to buy a property. Even without buying, Miami is still a pretty expensive city to rent an apartment. Actually, it is the 8th most expensive place to rent in the country. However, that is the price you have to pay to live in this tropical and sunshine-filled paradise. If you are keen on making your move to Miami happen with Miami movers, it will not hurt to know all the legal facts about renting an apartment in Miami, so you can have peace of mind as a tenant.

Your renting agreement can be oral or written in Miami.

These are the lease terms when renting an apartment in Miami

The most important thing you need to know is that a lease does not have to be written according to Florida statutes. If there is an oral agreement, the payment schedule will determine the rental period, such as a month-to-month, or a week-to-week period. On the other hand, you need to be careful when signing a written agreement so you do not end up in an unfortunate situation. There are some things you need to be on the lookout for, such as automatic renewal, the stipulation ‘ tenant agrees to obey all future rules of landlord’, pet rules, the stipulation ‘ rent may increase’, and similar rules that mean that the landlord can change the lease terms and you can do nothing about it.

About the security deposit

There is always a possibility that your landlord will require a security deposit or a few rents in advance to make sure you have sealed the deal. As security deposits are usually nonrefundable, you need to be sure that this is the place that you want to finalize your move with residential movers Miami to, and that you are absolutely convinced. Make sure to get a receipt of payment from your landlord, as Florida law stated that a deposit must be held in its own account.
