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!

Storage Advice from the Best Miami Movers

Advice on Storage from Local Miami Movers

In most cases, when people are moving they will need to put some of their belongings in storage, at least for a short period of time. Whether this is because they are downsizing and need to keep things out of the way or because they want to store certain items until they are needed, it is important to make sure you’re doing it correctly to avoid issues down the road.
A good self-storage unit is the most popular option when it comes to storage during a move. If you’re looking into this option, consider the following bits of advice from the best movers in Miami. It will help everything to go smoothly and keep your belongings safe.

Let the Movers Help

One big tip is that you can have the movers you hired for your home relocation help by bringing certain items to the self-storage unit. As long as you let the moving company know that you will need some items brought to the storage area and others to your new house, it won’t be a problem. Depending on the location of the self-storage facility there may be an added charge for the extra time, but letting the movers take care of this is well worth it.

Packing for Storage

When you’re packing your things for a move you are likely going to have things in boxes for a few days at the most. When you’re packing for storage, on the other hand, you need to make sure everything is safe for several months (or longer) of storage. Make sure your boxes are properly sealed to keep moisture and air out of them. Adding in moisture absorbent items can further provide protection to many things. If you have temperature sensitive items going to storage, make sure the unit you select has temperature control.

Pack from the Back

When loading a storage unit you always want to put the biggest items all the way to the back. This will allow you to have a more efficient loading plan so you can get everything into the storage locker without a problem. The other point to keep in mind when planning how you will load the unit is whether or not you will need access to any items. If there are certain things you will need to have access to on a regular basis, putting that in front, but off to the side, is a good idea.

Heavy Boxes to the Bottom

Putting your heaviest and most durable items at the bottom of the storage unit is very important. Good local movers will do this almost instinctively because that is also how they are trained to load a moving truck. If you’re adding items to the storage locker yourself, however, make sure you keep the weight in mind to help protect your items.
Storage lockers are an excellent way to help your Miami move go easier and keep your new home more organized. By following these tips from local movers, you can be sure that your belongings will be kept nice and safe until you need them.
