Without a doubt, moving can be quite stressful. In fact, most people fear packing the most because of years of accumulation. Yet, if you are moving with kids, or even if you are not, packing can be the best part. Mainly, it allows you a chance to get organized again. Better still, it allows you to figure out what you do and don’t need. Thereafter, it is likely someone else gets to benefit from the stuff you no longer want. Moreover as you sort you can reflect and that is always rewarding. However, for kids, this can be challenging depending on their age and attachment to the home. So, though there are lots of cool ways to get them focusing on the positive of a move, books can help do the rest.
Hence, White Glove Moving & Storage has come up with a read aloud featuring a number of great books to share with kids. Also, it is a great idea to purchase a book or two and together write how they are feeling in the covers of the books. Then, down the road you can take the books back out and read about their fears or excitement and evaluate how it worked out. Important to mention, should you hire a mover this summer, rest assured at White Glove we are adhering to all CDC protocol and are able to help you get into your new home safely.
Firstly, the Berenstein Bears Moving Day. As a fan of the series, this is an easy book with great images geared to children ten and under. As always, the message is wholesome and describes how change can be difficult yet typically not as bad as projected.
Next, another moving book geared towards elementary school aged or even toddlers is Tigger’s Moving Day. Of course, we all know and love Winnie the Pooh and all his pals; however, did you know how Tigger chose his tree house? Well, join Anna Valencia Tillery on this reading to see if it’s a good fit for your family.
Another option, try I Like Where I Am. In this book, discover how tough change can be for a six year old boy yet how rewarding it can be too. As a bonus, this one is full of rhythms and great illustrations.
Finally, for our first batch of moving books, this one is for girls or perhaps boys nine to fourteen. Written by Meg Cabot, this is a a witty book. Most certainly, moving as you get a bit older can be challenging and in this first book of a series Allie Finkle tells it like is. Best part, your child can find a new character to learn and grow with since there are other books to follow.
In conclusion, it is likely you have your own questions about moving. Likely, you too are overwhelmed and feeling like you bit off too much as a parent with covid and the like. Yet, as Treasure Coast moving experts, you can count us to make it easier. Perhaps, you need some short term storage while you do some repairs in your new space? We do that.

Throughout the nation, moving during the summer is the most popular time to move. Locally, there are many reasons for this. For example, the weather is much nicer in most parts of the country during the summer. Also, for families, kids are out of school which makes moving much easier. Of course, moving this summer will be different. Due to Covid-19, there are new safety measures in place that will help families and professionals movers alike. For instance, masks and gloves are recommended to be worn for the overs and the customer. At White Glove Moving & Storage, portable hand washing kits and daily truck sanitation are new norms. Yet, the most important take away is that your move can still happen.
As an interstate agent with Bekins Vanlines, we have the privilege of moving people and families into and out of Florida. Due to high demand in the summer, minimum weights for each shipment go up which results in slightly higher charges as a result. If flexible, customers can see a savings if choosing to move before the middle of May or after the middle of September. However, changing dates is not always possible so when it comes to moving this summer here are a few tips.
Firstly, for those doing some of the move yourself, avoid working outside during the hottest part of the day. For pets, choose a cool place for them to stay that’s away from the packing and loading areas. Often, a kennel or a pet sitter’s house are the best options. Also, think about personal hydration and wear breathable clothing. Perhaps the easiest solution, hire White Glove for all the big and heavy stuff and allow yourself time to pack in the mornings and evenings leading up to move day. To do so, an in-home or virtual survey is required as moving this summer will fill up.
Secondly, since demand is high in the summer months, be sure to arrange for your survey ad reserve your ideal dates as soon as possible. Because, with more people booking there are only so many dates available in the month. Please note, this is less of an issue when moving locally throughout the Treasure Coast as opposed to out of state. Additionally, take advantage of special packages from professionals for packing materials. During peak season, big box stores tend to run low on inventory as a result of demand. Therefore, ask how many and what size boxes are suggested when you get your free White Glove survey so you don’t have to guess. Better still, you won’t have to go into an number of stores before moving this summer.
Thirdly, for those moving with kids, we suggest you try to make it fun. Aside from the suggestions below, consider reading to them from a lists of top rated kids’ moving books. Hence, it allows them to see they are not along in the moving process. Consequently, White Glove has launched a summer reading experience; please watch and enjoy.If you want to own this book; here it is.
In conclusion, moving is stressful and the summer heat along with the Covid crisis do not make it any easier. However, if you plan and communicate with trusted moving partners, you can have a pleasurable experience. Thus, at White Glove Moving & Storage, we enjoy being your summer moving partner with checklists and more for you to use. As a result, we look forward to performing your complimentary survey and earning the opportunity to perform your move local or long distance.
Without a doubt, these are strange times in our world today. Because, moving during Covid-19 is completely uncharted waters. However, as Treasure Coast movers, our White Glove Moving and Storage team feels confident things are adapting well. For example, since the pandemic our professional movers have been practicing all CDC protocols. This includes, portable hand washing kits, temperature checks and deep sanitation of all trucks and our warehouse. Additionally, pre-screening questions have been asked to all our customers and staff daily. More importantly, gloves and masks have been given to all our employees as an additional layer of protection. As a result, we feel safe to be able to perform moving safely throughout Florida and interstate.
As an essential service, our staff has been able to work throughout this crisis. After the first five weeks, the high demand for accelerated real estate closings subsided. Hence, we took those select slower days to do additional training and enhance our facility. Using some of our most handy men, we were able to paint the entire exterior of our two warehouses totaling approximately seventy thousand square feet in just two weeks. What a wonderful change it is!
Next, we were able to team up with the Sunrise Rotary and Vero Beach Flash to participate and be the host venue for the Front Line Heroes parade. As a respected Sebastian moving company, we participated in their parade at the Sebastian River Medical Center first. Impressively, over 23 businesses and organizations participated. Followed by, staging and photos at our Vero Beach moving and storage facility. From this location, twenty plus organizations came with their signs and wavers. Once lined up, the entire parade traveled east then slightly south to the Cleveland Clinci Indian River Hospital. To be a part of it all, was so gratifying. Hundreds of nurses, doctors, volunteers and patients lined up and embraced the support. Of course, had there had been a horn honking award, our twenty-six foot moving truck would have won. Curious? Please, view the parade exit here.
Additionally, we are proud to have been a part of Truckload of Love. Aligned with the Berkshire Hathaway real estate office in Vero Beach, collectively an entire fourteen foot truck was filled. Inside, were paper products for the Senior Resource Association and food for the Indian River Food Pantry. Taking place over Mother’s Day weekend, many people dropped off items in a non-contact format. To be clear, this drive was safe and very rewarding. Hence, many people throughout the area will benefit directly from these efforts.
In conclusion, our White Glove Moving and Storage team enjoys the work we do. In all honestly, the new sanitation procedures now in place are a betterment to our movers. Have we had to make sacrifices? Yes. However, we believe that keeping America moving together is vital. In the same vein, by providing discounts and flexibility for moving dates, we are doing our part. Let’s face it, moving is stressful; especially during Covid-19. So, we believe it is our duty to be the best we can be to make moving a pleasure. As always, we wish to support our community and staff by giving how and when we can. In summary, if there is a move coming up, we are here to help you move safely. In the event you have questions, please check out our website or call us at 866-GLOVE10.
During these unprecedented times, White Glove Moving & Storage is proud to still offer top-notch moving during Covid-19. Additionally, we provide packing, storage, delivery and installation services throughout Florida. Furthermore, for those moving long distance we assist people and businesses relocating into or out of the Treasure Coast area.
That is to say, there are several steps we are taking to help ensure the safety of our employees, customers and their goods. Firstly, we have employee screenings prior to the start of each workday. For instance, daily checking temperatures and asking questions about how staff are feeling and what exposure they may have had. Certainly, this helps alleviate concerns customers have moving during Covid-19.
Secondly, we are asking pre-screening questions provided by the CDC to all our customers. When? Both before a survey and their actual move day. As a result, that helps add a level of comfort to the staff as they leave our facility each morning.
Thirdly, we made our sanitation kits more robust for each truck. Presently, these include gloves, masks, hand sanitizer along with disinfectant spray and wipes. As a result, our movers wear these items while performing the moves when applicable. Additionally, the sprays and wipes are used on hard surfaces throughout the day. Lastly, the trucks are cleaned thoroughly each evening.
As an extra step, we were able to create a portable hand washing station for each Treasure Coast moving truck. To clarify, these kits include: 3-gallon water filled hard plastic jugs with spigots, sanitizing liquid soap and c-fold towels. Most importantly, hand washing helps stop the spread for those moving during Covid-19.
To summarize, at White Glove Moving & Storage we are an essential service. In the world at large, real estate transactions are still happening. Throughout our nation, people are moving locally and into new states. Now more than ever, the need for a professional mover has risen. For example, folks moving from Michigan to the Treasure Coast of Florida may have thought they’d pack themselves. With the current travel ban, as Treasure Coast movers, we now need to perform their full pack prior to moving day. Another example, is that firm hours of operation are in place for several homeowners’ associations. Hence, what we can do in a matter of hours would take regular people double the time. Moreover, renting a truck and trying to find labor for moving during covid-19 is difficult. Of course, using used materials is unnecessary exposure as well.
In conclusion, with great rates in place and 50 full-time employees along with 15 trucks; we can make it happen. To adapt, we are offering both in-home and virtual surveys . Plus, we love what we do and we would be honored to assist you. Best wishes to you and yours now and always.

Henceforth, our team is still able to assist with your moving needs throughout the thirty day shut down. As a result, we will be providing all our normal services; however, our office will be closed to the public.
With decades of experience under our belt, we are proud to be leaders in the industry when it comes to sanitation, cleanliness and professionalism. However, in light of the present circumstances effecting our country, we are taking additional measures. Since being sent the recommended CDC precautions, our teams have been implementing every protocol. Presently, our process includes taking temperatures and having employees who feel unwell simply stay home. In addition, sanitation baskets have been created for each truck. Each contain disinfectant wipes, sprays, gloves, masks and portable hand washing stations. Furthermore, we have pre-screening questions in place for all our clients before the move or survey. All these efforts are in effect to help safe guard all our customers, employees and their belongings.
