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!

Simple Miami Tips for Packing Your Kitchen

Moving Tips for Packing Your Kitchen

When people think about packing up for a move they typically just think about it in fairly general terms. For example, one might say that they need to pack up their house for a move. The reality is, however, that each room of the house is going to require a different approach in order to get it done quickly and safely.
When it is time to start packing up your kitchen, the following tips can be very helpful. This will not only help you to avoid breaking any of your items, but will also make it easier to unpack when your things get to your new house. Whether you’re hiring a team of Miami movers to help with the move or you are doing it on your own, these tips should be taken into account before starting on your kitchen.

Using the Proper Boxes

There are many different types of things that are kept in a kitchen so you may need to have several different types of boxes. For example, when you are packing up your dishes you will usually want strong boxes that are smaller so that you don’t put too many in each box. This will keep them lighter, while still providing the dishes the protection they need.
Small appliances like toasters, blenders and others can be packed up into general moving boxes in most cases because they aren’t too heavy or too large. Depending on the specific appliances you have, you may be able to put multiple in one box to save some space.

Keeping Silverware Organized

If you have a silverware organizer in your drawers you can save time on the move by simply wraping it up with plastic food wrap. This will keep each item in place so that when you get to your new home you just have to put it away in your drawer. The wrap will help keep the silverware safe, clean and ready to be used so you have one less thing to worry about in your new home.

Safety First

When in the kitchen there are a lot of potentially dangerous items. Knives, of course, but also the blades from food processors can cause people to get cut if they grab them without care. With this in mind, make sure you wrap up the sharp ends so that people don’t accidently get cut while moving them. Even if they are in boxes, knives can poke through the sides if you don’t take the necessary precautions.

Larger Appliances

If you will be taking larger appliances like the oven, refrigerator and even microwave with you when you move, make sure you take care with how they are moved. Never try to lift these extra heavy items on your own and when possible always use a dolly or other moving tools. Of course, the best option when moving any heavy appliances is to have your team of professional Miami movers take care of the work for you.
