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!

Should I empty dressers before moving?

One of the most common questions regarding packing and moving is: Should I empty dressers before moving? There are some cases when it is highly recommendable and there are some cases when it is not really necessary, and here is a list of those cases. The best advice is to contact residential movers Miami and ask them for any additional information that you need, but here is a general outline of the situation.

Empty out your dresser before the move
Make sure to check all the drawers for money, medicine, and documents before the move.

The short answer on if you should empty dressers before moving

If your dresser is sturdy and lightweight, you will not need to pack your clothes separately. On the other hand, if your dresser is made out of full wood and is extremely heavy, to begin with, you will need to remove everything from the inside. In assessing if your dresser is light enough, ask your Miami beach movers and they will be able to tell you what you should do.

How are dressers transported?

Most moving companies Miami will wrap your dressers in furniture pads and shrink wrap. This will keep your drawers from palling out and your clothes inside the dresser. Before they get a chance to do that, you should take some of the things out of the dresser to make sure that the transport goes smoothly. As the dresser will be moving around in the moving truck, you will want to take out any personal belongings or loose clutter and junk that is laying around. You should also check all the drawers for money and any documents such as ATM cards, IDs, or passports that you may keep in there.

Over night box
If you are moving long-distance, you will need to pack some clothes to wear until your dresser gets to your new home.

When do you need to take the clothes out of the dresser?

In some cases, you will need to (partially) empty out your dresser. If you are planning a long-distance move, you will need to pack some of the clothes as it may take up to a few weeks to get your dresser delivered. So, make a smart choice and pack up everything that you plan on wearing on the daily basis in the time that it takes to get your dresser delivered. Another instance of a situation in which you will need to empty out your dresser is when it is already heavy and large. The chances of damaging your dressers get bigger the heavier your dresser gets.

Do you need to empty dressers before moving to prevent damage?

Most of the time, you will not cause any damage to the dresser if you decide to keep your clothes inside during the transport. However, this does not apply in situations when your dresser is falling apart before the move. The heavier your dresser is, the easier it will break when movers try to maneuver it through your house, into the van, and then into the new house.
