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.

Again, thank you for choosing Miami Movers For Less, 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.

Making a moving checklist is something you have to do if you want to do everything properly, and not to forget some moving steps. The moving checklist includes everything, from finding a reliable moving company, packing strategies, to finding a safe storage unit and a new home. There are a lot of things to consider and to think about when planning a move. So, take time to plan and follow your to-do list. By respecting your moving checklist your move will be easy and comfortable. 

Tips for an efficient moving checklist

#1 Tip: Picking a moving date

Every moving checklist starts with a moving date. This is the first thing you have to do. Decide what time of year is the best for you to take a move. Our suggestion is to pick the middle of the week because the prices are lower than moving during the weekends. Also, avoid moving during the summer, because this is the busiest time of the year for movers and the prices are significantly higher than in months between September to April. When you have picked the moving date that is convenient for your needs and budget, it is time for the second step.

Second, but the most important step in your moving checklist is finding and hiring a reliable moving company in Florida. When you start your search for dependable movers you should compare few moving companies. The most important is to check their background, license, reviews, and services. Make sure to hire a moving company that has the perfect balance between services and affordable price. Be careful if the moving price is too low because maybe you are dealing with rogue movers. After you read their reviews, compare quotes from different moving companies. In this way, you will find the one that is the perfect choice for your budget and needs. Today it is not hard and complicated to find movers you can trust. You just need to make a good research, and to be very careful. In the sea of moving companies, you need to pick the one you can completely trust with your most precious belongings.

#3 Tip – Declutter your home and get rid of unnecessary items

To start your packing process successfully, you need to declutter and clean out your home. There are a lot of items you can sell, donate or just throw away. You need to clean and declutter each room of your home strategically. If you have a yard, arrange a garage sale so you can sell items you won’t use in your new home. In this way, you will also earn some extra money to pay your long distance movers Miami. Another great thing you can do is to donate the items, you will make someone happy. By riding of the unnecessary items, you are cutting your moving expenses. So, make sure to do it before you continue following other steps on your moving checklist.

# 4 Tip – Collect Packing Supplies

Make sure to get packing supplies ahead of time. You can find free moving boxes in your near grocery store or on the Craiglist, or you can get it from your professional packers in Miami. A moving company can provide you with the best quality of packing tapes, wrapping materials, cardboard boxes. Save your time and energy and ask your movers for packing supplies. In this way, you will move completely hassle-free.

#5 Tip – Notify your utility company

Another important step on your to-do list. To have a successful relocation you need to notify your utility company, too. You want to have access to your cable and electricity immediately after the move. So, make sure to arrange it on time, before you leave your current home. If you forget to notify your utility company you may be risking unpacking in dark and many other complications in your new home.

#6 Tip – Pack essentials

Don’t forget to do it! You will need your essentials for the first days and nights in your new home. After you are done with packing your furniture, clothes and other unessential, it is time to pack your essentials. Your essential box should include items you need for first time in your new home.
