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!

Tips and tricks for moving to a studio apartment in Miami

It’s not uncommon that people downsize when they are moving to a new property. Of course, each family has their own reasons behind it. Moving to a smaller home has plenty of benefits. Even though you might only see the downsides of moving to a studio apartment, we are sure you will grow to love it. Small apartments have their own charm and once you’ve mastered living in such small quarters, everything else will be a piece of cake. In most cases, you’ll have to look into storage units Miami as you won’t have enough space for all your stuff, but let us show you how you can move into a studio apartment really easily.

Living in an apartment has its pros and cons, but living in a studio apartment requires some extra thought and creativity.

Moving into a studio apartment in Miami is really common

Miami is a very big city, as we all know. Living in a suburban area in a family home is not something everyone can afford. Imagine you are a college student who is planning on moving to Florida for school. You don’t want to live in a dorm, so you have to rent an apartment, but sharing one with roommates isn’t your cup of tea. Moving into a studio apartment is something that you simply have to do.

Do a lot of research before you make a final decision on a place. Not all studio apartments have the same layout and some will be more practical than others. Keep in mind that you might have to rearrange furniture and will probably have people over at some point. Therefore, having a really tiny apartment with unusable space is not something Florida movers recommend getting. 

Be smart about your storage solutions

Living in a small apartment will make you realize how much stuff you actually own. After all, maybe it’s finally time to declutter as you planned? Getting rid of a lot of unnecessary belongings will mean you’ll fit everything comfortably in a studio apartment, as well as pay less money to your moving company Fort Lauderdale for the transportation costs. Once you move in, you will have to get creative about your storage and think of solutions you might not have had to use before.

Decorate with light colors and make sure you have plenty of natural light

The last thing you want when moving into a studio apartment is to live in a dark space. So try to pick the apartment that has large windows and plenty of light during the day. If you can, paint the walls in a light color so you get the feeling of a larger space. Use white LED bulbs and place your mirrors strategically. With a few simple tricks, you can make this apartment feel less claustrophobic than you originally thought. Maximizing the space in your new home is really easy to do, no matter if you live in a studio apartment or a family house!
