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 Miami Movers For Less 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.

Movers are late on moving day – what should you do?

/ By Editor / 0 comments

Moving process is a complicated one. Given the fact that you will be moving homes or offices, you will be eager to make sure that everything goes according to the plan. However, this is not possible all the time. Every now and then any given moving company is going to be late for whatever reason. Sometimes they will get stuck in traffic. Other times they will have a flat tire. On certain occasions, the party that they will be moving before you may be difficult to handle. Lastly, there may not be a good enough reason, but movers would be late. It usually is not the case, but it can happen. On such occasions, you should know what to do. Therefore, we bring you the movers-are-late, how-do-I-not-panic?! article. Bear with us and find out what to do if you become the victim of the late movers.

Waiting for the movers to arrive can be nerve wrecking

What should you do if the movers are late on a moving day?

There are a few steps that you can take in the case that your movers are late on your moving day:

  • Get in touch with the designated contact person
  • Call mover’s main office in the case that you cannot get in touch with the person that you called first
  • Use that bonus time to make sure that you have packed all of your items
  • Double check everything
  • Find an alternative

Getting in touch with the designated contact person if movers are late

Obviously, the first thing that you should do in the case that you have been waiting, but movers are late is to call them.

Every reliable moving companyMiami Movers for Less, for example, is going to provide you with a phone number of the person that is going to spearhead the crew dedicated to moving you. Make sure to call this person as soon as you realized that the moving company is late.

As a matter of fact, it is a good idea to get in touch with that person about an hour before the arrival time. This action will enable you to confirm that the moving company is going to be on time. In the case that they are going to be late, they should be aware of it this close to your pick-up time. So, it is even better to act proactively and try to find out whether they would be on time even before you realize that they are late.

Calling the moving office

Let’s imagine that you have called the leader of the moving crew, but he or she is not picking up. What do you do next? Well, you get in touch with their main office of course. The main office of the local Miami moving companies should have the information on why your movers are late.

Traffic jam can turn out to be one of the reasons why your movers are late
There are numerous reasons why movers can be late and traffic jam is only one of them

Now, you should be aware that some of the moving companies and their employees may try to cover up the issue and reassure you that the crew is just about to arrive. Do not let them fool you. Make sure to get detailed information on the reason why the crew is late. If you are having troubles with it, ask to talk to their manager.

Movers are late? Good, now you will have time to finish up packing

Movers being late is not the worst thing in the world. Especially so when you have not had enough time to pack all of your items. Once you have got the information about why your movers are late, get on with protecting and wrapping your unpacked items.

However, if you have chosen a bundled option which includes packing service in Miami by the moving company, then you may be facing a bigger issue. In this case, you can either find an alternative moving related-activity to do or start packing by yourself. Obviously, you will probably be lacking moving materials. We would suggest not buying them right away, but preparing your items for the move. Let the moving company finish up packing and moving once they arrive. Of course, make sure to negotiate a better price for your move because of an issue such as this one.

Double check everything when waiting for the movers to arrive

In the case that you have organized so well and have already finished up packing, you should use the bonus time to doublecheck everything related to your move. Why should you do that? Well, this is the last moment that you will be spending in the apartment or the office where you are moving from. This is especially important to do in the case when you are hiring storage units Miami as well. When would be a better time to make sure that you have packed everything than now?

Checklist
Make a checklist and make sure to double check everything on it

Furthermore, making sure that everything has been packed should not be your only concern. There is going to be a lot of paperwork that goes along with moving. Check that paperwork to verify that all is in order. Has the utility company sent anyone to make final readings on your meters? If not, this is your golden opportunity to get it all done!

Finding an alternative

If you have done all of the above and have been waiting for ages for your moving company to arrive, but they are not showing up, you should seek help from last minute movers.

Last minute movers are obviously going to be more expensive than what you might have planned to spend on your move. Therefore, it is our suggestion that you contact them only in the case that you are undertaking a move that cannot wait not even a day longer. If it is not imperative for you to move on that particular day, you can try and reschedule your move for another day. And with another moving company if that is what you choose.
