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.

The cost of living after moving to Coral Springs before starting a family

As a leading Coral Springs moving company, we can see more people moving in than moving out. People mostly come from the state of New York and California. It makes sense for California since the weather is alike. Now the cost of living is 11% to 17%  higher compared to the national average, depending on which website you’re looking at. Currently, the total rent for a family of four is $2482 per month, and for one person $1677 per month. An average person spends $583 on food per month while a family of four spends $1519/per month. Transportation costs are $50.3 for one person and $136 for a family. The median salary in Coral Springs is estimated to be $3,935/month (after tax).  Also if you’re planning on buying the current mortgage interest rate for the next 20 years is 5.4%.

If you’re moving to Coral Springs before starting a family, you should think about buying a house. The median price home price is $585K and the median listing home price/Sq Ft is $279. Now if you’re a couple the median income is $77,360 so that’s not that high. But if you do some extra work while white glove moving and storage movers do everything else, you’ll move in no time. This means that you can put effort into learning new skills or doing more work to pay for that mortgage and move as well. Working from home and freelancing are more popular and accessible than ever before; so if you want to work a bit more, you should be able to do it from the comfort of your home.

Should you move before or after having a baby

Well, the simple answer is before, while you’re still a couple, single or pregnant.  We as professional movers know that moving with your kids can be complex; both for us and for you, but it’s accomplishable.  It’s fine for us more than for the parents, since parents will have more trouble calming the kids and the babies can get upset during the moving process.  What we know is that babies are usually adjusted to their surroundings quite fast, and you should probably follow this advice and move after the baby is born. As you can see babies are fragile beautiful little beings who don’t like to move a lot (outside their comfort zone – the bed and the room) before they grow a bit.

Now if you have kids as we’ve mentioned it’s okay, but then people usually tend to move during the summer. It makes a lot of sense why is this because parents can take their annual summer vacation and kids are on summer holiday. This means that during this summer instead of going to the beach, you’ll most likely be moving and packing, wrapping, loading, carrying, dragging, and decluttering. If you want to move you should do it now, at the end of the fall and during the winter since that’s the time when prices are lower than during Spring or Summer. Also, you won’t have as many things as you’ll have with your family and you’ll get to know the city better in case of an emergency or something.

The conclusion

So what should you do is totally up to you. We’ve just discussed the possibility of your move. Most people and experts would agree that yes you should move before the baby comes. It’s much easier for you and the whole move will be simpler as well as cheaper. You should also hurry since the overall prices are rising because of post-pandemic inflation and the fossil fuel crisis.

Thank you for reading our article and we hope that it helped you.  We’ve written about moving to Coral Springs before starting a family and we hope that you’ll move as soon as possible. Have a great and stress-free move.
