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.

Of course, we all know and love Winnie the Pooh and all his pals; however, did you know how Tigger chose his tree house?

White Glove Moving, Storage & Delivery, agent for Bekins Van Lines, was pleased to accept the 2018 “Large Company” Torch Award for Business Ethics during the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of South East Florida and the Caribbean’s inaugural awards luncheon. Companies were nominated by peers in the business community that sought to highlight the high standards of leadership and organizational ethics performed by for-profit entities broken down into small, medium and large categories based on the number of full-time employees.
Each of the 75 plus companies nominated submitted information regarding their ethical relationships with customers, employees and vendors which translates into a high level of trust in the communities they serve. The rigorous review of true character for each business included a deep examination of how they adhere to the six principles of TRUST. Winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges appointed for their own commitment to high ethical standards.
“Communicate to Differentiate,” rang true to the judges when selecting White Glove Moving, Storage and Delivery of Florida for their winner in the Large Company category with 50+ employees. In an industry that often gets a bad reputation for rogue movers and price gouging, it was refreshing for White Glove to be recognized for their efforts to go above and beyond when it comes to customer service, communication and compassion during the often stressful time of a move. The company’s ability to perform great work, reinvest in its employees and contribute to the community; making it an area families want to move to, live in and be proud of are just a few of the reasons this growing business has repeatedly earned an A+ rating with the BBB, Angie’s List and Home Advisor and is proud to be the first Torch Award recipient for South East Florida and the Caribbean.
