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.

Professional movers have all the right tools and loads of experience to tackle every type of relocation. But you should know that the move is not over when the moving truck leaves in front of your new home. You still have to unpack and make your home suitable for living.

Renovation ideas for your Miami home: How to make space look bigger

The lack of space is one of the main problems of living in big cities. Space is an expensive commodity, but there are ways to makes smaller rooms look bigger:

  • Paint the walls in bright colors. When you use white paint, you are giving the room some much-needed breathing space. Other than white you can use pastel shades of green, blue, or pink.
  • Use as much natural light as possible. In other words, don’t cover your windows with heavy curtains. If you don’t have enough daylight set-up artificial lighting but try to use led panels as they emit bright white light.
  • Place mirrors strategically. Mirrors do an amazing job of making small spaces look bigger. They reflect the light from different angles thus making rooms look bigger. Furthermore, mirrors also create an illusion of depth.
  • Get some multi-functional furniture. Folding sofas, couches, and beds present an excellent solution for saving space.
  • Rent a storage unit. Have too much stuff that you are not ready to throw out? Renting a storage unit might do the trick for you.

Renovation ideas for your Miami house: How to pick furniture

Choosing furniture for your apartment can be a frustrating activity simply because there are far too many choices. It’s easy to get lost when you have plenty of different choices. So here are some rules that you should remember when choosing furniture for your apartment:

  • Try not to mix styles too much. Using different styles in one apartment could be a good thing, as this is the way of leaving your personal mark. But as much as you don’t want a furniture catalog look, mixing many decorating styles might end in your home looking like a circus.
  • Use a limited color palette and patterns. Try to repeat the colors and styles on walls and some pieces of furniture to make your room feel tied together.
  • Create a central point. This is a trick that every photographer knows. In other words, use one piece of furniture that doesn’t match in terms of color or style and build the whole room around it.

How to organize your life during home renovations

Home renovations are a transitional period during which we have to change our routines and habits to adapt. Depending on the scale of works there is a possibility that you will have to live somewhere else during this period. Here is what you can do if you are moving into an unfinished home:

  • Rent an apartment nearby. You will be able to swing by and check how the works are progressing.
  • Ask your friends to crash at their place. Don’t forget how home renovations tend to run off schedule, so plan wisely and don’t overstay your welcome.
  • Go to a hotel. This a somewhat more expensive solution, but you will have loads of free time to concentrate on renovations-related tasks.
  • Create a safe zone in your home. Even if you are renovating your entire home at once, you can reserve one room for sleeping and eating.

What to do with your belongings during this period

Huge structural repairs like leaking roofs, tearing down walls, electrical installations, and plumbing are all quite dirty business. There will be a lot of dust and debris, and your belongings could get damaged in the process. If you don’t have a spare room to put your furniture and appliances, storage units Miami could do the trick for you. But there are some things that you should be aware of before renting a storage unit:

  • Safety parameters. Before you book a storage unit you must check if it ticks all the right security boxes. By this, we mean the latest monitoring systems, quality locks, and the presence of night guards.
  • Climate control. Air-conditioned storage units are the best way to preserve your belongings m from harsh outdoor factors. Climate controlled units also prevent mold and mildew from appearing.
  • Accessibility. Make sure that the unit is easily accessible by truck or van. Also check out if they are open 24 hours a day, and if they work on weekends and holidays.
