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.

Moving to another state? How to prepare for this big step? From packing, transporting to finding a most affordable way to move, making a transition to a new state is no easy task. But, reliable Miami movers are here to help. We ensure your smooth and safe move to your new home by bringing you a few useful tips on how to make it.

Moving to another state? Let’s start with preparation!

Moving to another state requires a big budget: Start saving!

When moving to another state, make sure to include all necessary costs in your budget. Different costs such as shipping, gas, hotel, transportation, insurance can pile easily. Relocating to a new country requires also upfront expenses. Make a plan to start saving money for the relocation. Make sure your budget covers all costs of the transition and you should add some money in case of unexpected costs.

Planning your moving budget doesn’t stop when you get to your new home. You should also think about the cost of living in a new state. Make sure you can afford a few months living costs after the move. Determine how much money you can spend in your new city with your current salary.

Decide what to do with your old items: To sell or not to sell?

When you are preparing for the long distance move, you have to pay attention to the size of your baggage. You don’t want to pay a fortune for the move because of your old and forgotten items in the garage. It makes more sense to sell or donate old items you won’t use in your new home. In this way, you will save time, money and energy. Think if it is cheaper to buy new furniture for your new home or to pay shipping costs for transporting your old furniture pieces.

Research educational options

Do you have school-age children? Then, searching for a new school is the major part of moving to another state. Find the top rated schools in the area you want to live and compare their programs, classes, ratings, etc. Make sure the new school is the perfect fit for your child.

Next step: Finding a new home

The ideal thing you can do is to find a new home before you move. Unless you know the area, make sure to do a complete check of a community and neighborhood. Find a safe and budget-friendly place where you or your family can be happy. It is a good idea to ask for professional help and to hire a real estate agent to help you find a new home in the new city. For example, if Miami is your next destination, make sure to check their best neighborhoods for families to find a perfect place where your loved ones can fit in.

Moving to another state requires a reliable moving company

To make sure your move is smooth and easy, our suggestion is to hire competent movers. Your reliable relocation partner should be a moving company that you can trust with your belongings. So, to find the best, make sure to compare moving companies, their ratings, reviews, services, and prices.  Contact at least three moving companies to ask for a moving quote. Compare all moving quotes you get to make a decision which moving company is the perfect fit for your budget. If the moving company doesn’t provide onsite moving estimate consider this as a red flag to not to hire movers.

To hire reliable interstate movers Miami to handle your move make sure they have license and insurance, then you can be sure your move is in good and safe hands.

Make a strategic packing plan

Before you start packing your items, make sure to buy packing supplies and to plan how to pack efficiently. Our suggestion is to pack your non-essentials first, such as home décor, books, furniture, electronics, etc. Then, save the essentials for the last box. Essentials box should include kitchen items, toiletries, etc. The items you don’t want to move, sell or donate. Make sure to pack all important items including documents. Everything should be protected and safely packed in clearly labeled boxes.

Transfer your utilities to a new address

Before making a move make sure to contact your utility company to notify them about the relocation. Utilities include cable and internet, gas, electricity, water and sewer and security system. If you already know your new address, schedule a transfer date.

Last, but not least: How to get a job in another state?

The best thing you can do is to search for a job before a move. There are many ways to do it. Start with an online job search. For example, a LinkedIn profile is a good start. When you create a profile you can connect with people who can help you browse job all over the world. When you apply for the job, make sure your employer understands why you are applying for the role and explain why new state fits into your career path.
