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!

Safety precautions when moving a safe

Heavy and big objects like a safe are often quite hard to move and this task should be left to professional movers. Usually, it takes trained personnel and equipment to move objects of this scale. Like in every move, your safety is the most important factor, and it becomes even more important when dealing with bulky objects. You need to make sure to prevent any injuries to your movers and any damage to your property or other belongings. This article will help you out with some safety precautions when moving a safe to make the moving process the easiest it can be.

The first safety precaution is to empty your safe

You need to empty out your safe before the move. If there are some heavier objects in the safe this will help your movers in Fort Lauderdale significantly. If you mostly store documents in your safe, this will help you keep your documents organized. Emptying out your safe will also ensure that the belongings you usually keep in do not suffer damage in transport.

Precautions when moving a safe
One of the precautions when moving a safe is to have the right moving equipment.

You will need some special moving equipment

When dealing with a large safe, you will need an appliance dolly and professional-grade moving straps to make the move possible. The safe needs to be entirely secured by the dolly, and you will do that by completely wrapping the moving strap around it. It is worth a mention that renting out all of this equipment is not cheap, and you should compare the prices with the professional services of the Coral Springs moving company to see if it even makes sense to try and do it on your own.

Help is a big part of precautions when moving a safe

If you are considering doing this on your own you will need to have a lot of help. For a big and bugly safe, you will need to have around four to five strong helpers. You will need help to move the safe to the dolly and then keep it in place while you secure it with the moving straps. If you are not careful while doing this, it can lead to injuries connected with lifting heavy objects. It would be better to not risk injuries and to hire trained moving professionals as they know all the tips and tricks of the trade.

Moving truck
You will need a truck with a power tailgate to make the move of your safe possible.

Get the right rental truck

You will need to rent a truck with a power tailgate as it makes getting the safe on and off the dolly a lot easier. This will be a hard task for non-professional movers as the ramp is usually at a steep angle. The most important thing is to be careful and lift the safe with a proper lifting form so it does not strain your back and causes an injury. You really need to have a good think about do you want to do this on your own or do you want to hire professional help instead. If you decide to do it on your own make sure to be extra careful and not to cause any damage to yourself or your belongings.
