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!

What You Can’t Move in Miami

Restricted Items for Moving in Miami

When it comes time to move in Miami many people think they can just toss all their belongings into boxes, have them loaded onto a truck and be on their way. While the vast majority of things can be done this way, some items have restrictions on them. Even if you can take some of these items on a short local Miami move, you may not be able to if you are going to be crossing state lines.
If you are hiring a team of professional Miami movers, there may be additional restrictions on the type of things that can be moved. No matter what part of the city you are moving from or where you are going, it is a good idea to get a good understanding of which items may be restricted so you don’t run into any surprises.

Products with Common Restrictions

The following categories often have restrictions regarding whether or not you can pack them up and bring them with you in a move. Sometimes the restrictions involve certain amounts of a given product and other times it is just related to transporting the product across state lines. If you need to bring anything on this list with you, make sure you look into whether or not it is permitted in your situation.
• Flammable Items – Many flammable items such as gasoline, fireworks, kerosene, lamp oil, matches, nail polish remover, paint thinner and even charcoal can be restricted when you are moving.
• Chemicals – Many chemicals like ammonia, chemistry sets, cleaning solvents, darkroom chemicals, bleach, weed killer, pool chemicals and pesticides have restrictions on them.
• Explosive Items – Items that can be explosive are often banned. Propane tanks, fertilizer and aerosol cans may not be able to be moved.
• Batteries – Car batteries and even some household batteries may not be able to be transported across state lines. This is especially true if you have a large number of them.
This is not a complete list but covers the main category of products that may have limitations on them when it comes to moving them from Miami to another area. One of the easiest ways to see whether or not something you want moved will cause trouble is by simply calling your Miami moving company ahead of time and ask them for advice.

What to do with These Items

If you have any items in any of the categories listed above you will need to make sure they won’t cause any problems on your move. In most cases as long as you only have a small amount you won’t have any trouble. If you are worried, however, it is often easiest to just dispose of the items and replace them when you get to your new home. If you do need to take them with you, talk to your Miami movers about whether it is possible to get special containers or permits to have these items moved with you on your relocation.
