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!

Summer Moving in Miami – Tips for Staying Cool

Staying Cool while Moving in Miami

If you live in the Miami area, you know just how hot it can get.  If you’re planning to move to this area, be warned that from the heat and humidity it can be quite dangerous to work outside for long periods of time.  When planning a move in the Miami area, you will want to do everything you can to stay safe from the excessive heat.

Miami movers have helped thousands of clients over the years, and have learned how to stay cool and stay safe.  Whether you’re hiring local movers to handle the bulk of the work, or you’re going to try to take care of it yourself, take a few minutes to learn what some of the best movers in the area have said about keeping cool while moving in Miami.

Start Drinking Fluids Early

Everyone knows that you need to drink a lot more water and other fluids when you’re working in the heat.  In fact, your body will quickly tell you to start drinking in these conditions.  The problem is, however, by the time your body tells you you’re thirsty, it is really too late.  To help keep your body cool and hydrated on hot days, you need to start drinking water prior to starting the work.  Having a bottle of water in the car on the way to the moving site, for example, can give you a ‘head start’ with hydration so you can keep ahead of the heat.

Work Outside of Peak Heat Hours

This may not always be possible, but when it is you should try to do all the outdoor work before 11AM or after 4PM.  This can help ensure the sun is not beating directly down on you so you won’t get quite as heated.  Depending on the time of year and other factors the exact hours may change slightly, but this is a good rule of thumb.

Take Breaks in Air Conditioned Areas

When you take a break from working, make sure you go to the coolest area possible.  Whether this is an air conditioned home or vehicle, the cool air will help cool your body down so you can get back up and work without overheating.  In addition, make sure you are taking more frequent breaks to allow your body to get rid of the heat that you’re building up while working.

Cool Yourself from the Outside

In addition to drinking water, consider dumping water on your head and neck.  This can quickly whisk away a significant amount of heat so you can stay more comfortable.  Even a damp cloth around your neck can provide excellent relief.

Working With Professionals

If you’re not an experienced mover, the best thing you can do to stay safe while moving in Miami heat is to hire an experienced moving company to take care of the work for you.  The best movers have worked in this area for years and know how to get the job done right while keeping safe and cool.
