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.

Thanksgiving Events in Miami

/ By Editor / 0 comments

What crosses your mind when you think of Thanksgiving? For many people, it means family time, turkey and mashed potatoes, a long lazy weekend of football, and shopping. In Miami, there is much more to it than that. Fall is in full swing in November with lots of live entertainment and family events. From live music performances to tasty food festivals, shopping and game nights. You think Haloween in Miami was a bliss? Well, Thanksgiving Events in Miami will knock you off your feet.

A touch of history

Let’s take a few moments to remind ourselves what Thanksgiving is about. Back in September 1620, a small ship called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, with 102 passengers. They were mostly religious separatists seeking a new home where they could freely practice their faith and other ones lured by the promise of prosperity in the New World. After uncomfortable crossing that lasted 66 days, they dropped anchor near the Cape Cod, Massachusetts. One month later, the Mayflower crossed Massachusetts Bay. The Pilgrims, as they are now commonly known, began the work of establishing a village at Plymouth here.

Remember all the things and people you are thankful for in life.

Thanksgiving feast

What we call Thanksgiving nowadays occurred on Thursday, November 22. 1621. The Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast and that was one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. More than two centuries, this holiday has been celebrated only by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving Day to be a national holiday celebrated each November.

Game night

Sports lovers are probably going to start their long weekend with a game. The Brooklyn Nets are playing the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena this year. This is one of the most popular Thanksgiving Events in Miami this year, and certainly going to be a great game. And if you are looking for a place to fuel up near the arena, you can visit one of the many delectable Downtown restaurants.

Thanksgiving Events in Miami for Art lovers

If you are an Art lover, you will enjoy Thanksgiving Events in Miami. You should check out waterfront Museum Park in Downtown. There you’ll find two Miami culture gems: Pérez Art Museum Miami, as well as Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Once the sun goes down, you could maybe catch a show or listen to live music. During the entire month of November, Miami Live Arts Month invites you to the concerts, comedy shows, dance performances, poetry readings and lots of great live entertainment.

Whether you are making Thanksgiving dinner or going out, give yourself a treat.

Full stomach, full heart

While some of us prefer a homemade meal at home, others rather choose to go out for Thanksgiving lunch. Whatever your choice is, give yourself a treat. This is definitely the day to stuff yourself full of multi-course goodness. If you want to go out, you should hit up Miami’s restaurant scene for Turkey Day. It’s a nice opportunity to avoid being stuck in the kitchen and cleaning up later. You should search some of our favorite restaurants to see who’s serving the best deals. Thinking about spending Thanksgiving day on a luxury yacht? You should climb aboard the Venetian Lady in Downtown Miami and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner while you cruise around Biscayne Bay.

And if you are a vintage lover, you will enjoy plenty of vintage threads in a retro thrift store in Wynwood. For the ones that prefer shop-till-you-drop mall experience, there is plenty of choices. You should go and check out the Shops at Merrick Park, Aventura Mall, Dolphin Mall, Dadeland Mall, or Brickell City Centre.

New in Miami

If you are new in the city, this will be a great opportunity to fall in love with it. If you have hired residential movers in Miami, you are surely all settled and ready to have a good time. You will have a chance to get some rest from moving day and enough time to explore the city. If you are alone, this is the perfect time to mingle. With all the Thanksgiving Events in Miami, it is impossible to feel lonely.

Holidays at your new home

On the other hand, if you are still finalizing your moving, you will have enough time for that too. You can visit Miami storage facilities and arrange your belongings. You can also decorate your new home in peace. If you don’t have time for cooking or going out, don’t worry. You can always order a Thanksgiving dinner for delivery. Just make sure you make your order at least a day ahead.
