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!

When is the best time to contact moving professionals in Fort Lauderdale

When is the best time to contact moving professionals in Fort Lauderdale? Or any movers, as a matter a fact. Well, that question is quite popular amongst people who hire a mover for the first time. And that’s okay, it’s a normal question, right? There must be a time when you can call a mover and get better deals than when you normally. And there is. However, you also have to take into account who you are hiring. Since some moving companies offer ridiculously low moving quotes, and when moving day comes along they suddenly up the moving quote twofold in the guise that you only arranged with them a non-binding estimate.

Before signing your moving contract make sure you look out for what type of estimate you are agreeing to.

However, if this sounds all complicated – don’t fret. Movers in Fort Lauderdale are here to help. Today, we are going to share with you when to call your movers so you can get the best deals when you do decide to contact them.

When is the best time to contact moving professionals in Fort Lauderdale?

Keep in mind that when hiring Miami movers the time you need to contact moving professionals is dictated by the date you want to relocate to. Or, let’s actually simplify this. In general, movers are generally more free during winter than summer. This means that when you need to hire them during the summer a longer heads-up notice is required.

Keep in mind that some moving companies offer relocation on short notices. However, you should also know that the cost of such moves are sometimes two or three times as much as they would normally cost if you’ve just given them a heads up.

If however, you are moving in the winter the opposite is true. So, make sure that you plan out your move ahead. Know exactly the time you are going to move before you decide when to contact the movers.

Okay, I’ve got a date what now?

After you’ve settled on a day you want to move, now it’s time to give the movers a call. We recommend that you try to get a date that is somewhere in the middle of the month you plan on moving. Something between the 10th and 20th of your desired month. Also, try to negotiate an early move. This will not only help you psychologically, by getting the hardest thing of the day done in the morning but also it also means less traffic, as well.

Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.

On top of that, we also recommend that you stay clear of moving during the holidays for obvious reasons. Since holidays are the most frequent times people decide to relocate, and also the traffic on the roads is terrible. That’s why we suggest to our clients to relocate during the offseason. When no one – or almost no one that is, is planning a move.

Bonus tip

Also during your phone call with your movers, we always recommend getting some type of storage service. For example, storage Miami offers great storage deals at an affordable rate. You get 24/7 surveillance and car accessibility for a low price. Storage units are the perfect choice for all of your stuff that you don’t know what to do with. And it saves you the time of decluttering your belongings, as well.
