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.

Stress-free moving tips

When you decide to move you will realize that it is very stressful. From the beginning to the end. However, there are some ways to have a stress-free moving experience. We have hired experts to create a comprehensive list of tips for you. This will not only make your move stress-free but also make it a lot easier. When you follow these tips, you will also look forward to the move and feel positive about it. A positive mental attitude goes a long way when doing anything. This applies to relocation, as well. So, follow this list carefully in order to avoid problems.

Making proper organization

The organization is vital to stress-free moving. You are probably aware that you need to be organized to do anything in life correctly. This applies to moving as much as anything. So, creating a moving checklist will be crucial to reducing stress during your move.

When you are organized you will be much more prepared for any problems. You will anticipate them before they happen, and you will have devised possible solutions for them. Your checklist should contain everything from hiring a company to packing your belongings and getting rid of extra stuff. The checklist should be organized by the temporal distance leading up to your move. This way you will have time to do everything properly. This is step one for stress-free moving.

Hiring a reliable moving company

Another “trick” to having a stress-free moving experience is to hire a reliable moving company. There are a plethora of them, and everyone is seemingly offering perfect service. However, there are some that want to scam you and just take your money. There are ways to find reliable movers and you should pay close attention to this part of the article.

Hiring scammers will halve your budget and get nothing accomplished. You need to research every single company you find before signing the contract. Ask your friends or family for recommendations. If they do not have any, you should search online. There are websites such as BBB where you can find a lot of moving companies. When you find one that you think will be a good fit, check their reviews. If they have good reviews they are probably good.

However, there is a chance that these reviews are fake. If you are suspicious, call the number provided and check everything. Check if you are talking to an official company representative or a broker. Brokers may try to scam you by telling you lower prices and then redirecting you to a company. Then it turns out that the prices of the services are higher than the broker stated. So, be wary when dealing with them. Check this and then do the same for a couple of companies. After that, you should compare and see which one fits your needs best. Good residential movers Miami will help your move immensely and reduce stress while providing professional service.

Decluttering your home

There are probably a lot of things in your garage or your attic that just sit there, collecting dust. It is not wise to conduct the move while you are in possession of items like these. You obviously have no use for them and they will just increase the stress and the price of your move. Movers usually give you an estimated price based on the weight of your belongings. So, it is vital to get rid of stuff you do not need. There are a couple of ways of doing so:

  • Making a garage sale: This is the best way to get rid of the stuff you do not need. You will even get some money in return! The most important thing when having a garage sale is to advertise it properly. You should advertise it on social media, and hand out flyers around your neighborhood. You can even put posters up on notice boards around your home. A good advertisement goes a long way in creating your clientele. Also, do not be afraid to barter. It is much better to sell something at a lower price, than having to move it with your other belongings. So, be flexible with your prices!
  • Selling online: if you do not sell everything during your garage sale you can do so online. There are websites such as eBay that deal with this kind of trade.
  • Donating: You can also donate your things if you do not manage to sell everything. Ask your friends or family if they need something, and you can also use these items to “bribe” your friends into helping you do a stress-free move. Everything is more fun with friends. You can also donate the stuff to charity organizations. They know who needs it the most, so do not be afraid of doing a good deed, even though you will not get any money in return.

Packing process

This is the time when you should reach packing on your moving checklist. Packing is an important part of the whole deal because it can determine if something gets broken or lost. You should get different sized boxes and get packing supplies. Packing supplies include stuff like tape, packing paper, plastic wrap and so on. Fill one box with these supplies as it will make the packing process a lot easier. It is not fun when you lose your scissors while packing.

You should also take different colored stickers and use one color for each room, or item type. This will make creating an inventory and unpacking a lot easier. If you are not sure how to pack properly, consider hiring a packing company. Pro Movers Miami are one such company and will be happy to take over the packing duty. With their ability and expertise, you can be sure that they will do the job correctly.

Take your time for stress-free moving

One of the most important things to consider if you want to have stress-free moving is to take your time. Do not rush anything as it can make the process harder on both you and your movers. When you take your time to consider each matter carefully, the stress levels will be at a minimum. Good luck with your stress-free moving!
