White Glove Moving During Covid-19

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.

As an Essential Business We are Still Open to Assist

In light of these changing times, at White Glove Moving, we are  considered to be an essential business. Thereby, we are still able to help you or your clients in the moving and storage process at this time.  Additionally, our receiving warehouse is also still open. Therefore, we are able to receive in trucked goods for commercial and residential projects.  Currently, we are adhering to our standard hours of operation.

Furthermore, it is important to stress that in the current restrictions put forth by Governor DeSantis, our services are deemed essential. 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.

Therefore, it is our greatest wish that you know in these chaotic times our team is here to take care of making your move easy and cost effective. As a nation, we will prevail together. Most importantly, our team, at White Glove Moving, wishes you health and prosperity in these troubling times.

 

Open for Business, Moving during the Corona Virus

At this time, White Glove Moving & Storage is open and moving during the corona virus. Though military relocations have been halted nationwide, residential moving is still happening.  By using extra screenings from state to state, fellow agents in the Bekins network, along with ourselves, moves are safely taking place. Locally, rest assured, we are observing precautionary measures as recommended by the CDC. This is to insure the safety of our customers and employees. Prior to the actual move taking place, a series of questions will be asked referencing international travel and potential symptoms. Assuming there has been no international travel or symptoms such as fever coupled with respiratory issues, one’s move will take place as scheduled.

It is our goal to be your go-to mover to help ensure the safety of your goods. Whether moving across the street, across the state or across the country, the professionals at White Glove  are here to help. As always, we provide a free in-home survey to address all the questions and concerns of our customers. Thereafter, we work closely with the individuals to ensure they are up to date on all logistics of their move. Some of the top requests include packing materials for those choosing to pack themselves. Also, change of dates when a closing of a home does not go according to plan or construction is not yet ready.

Since 2002, we have steadily been gaining loyal customers and we welcome the opportunity to assist in your upcoming move.  Additionally, our team is proud to be an A+ rated mover for residential and commercial entities throughout the region via the BBB.  In part, because of our ethics to customers, employees and our community. Locally, a number of events have been cancelled. Presently, all functions yielding over fifty people have  also been postponed; at least for the next eight weeks.  It is important that we all monitor the updates and regulations put forth by the center for disease control while also adhering to their suggestions. Fortunately, our team is able to provide top notch service in these sensitive times.  Additionally, we  will respectfully consider all reasonable requests made of our customers as a result. As proud Americans, we are confident this crisis will pass. May our spirits stay high and a sense of unity persist.To setup for your survey or confirm your upcoming move please call 772-778-4750.

Moving to Martin County?

Moving to Martin County is very exciting and the reasons to do so seem almost endless!

Luckily, if this is a move you were considering our team of professional movers have composed a list. First and foremost, the Stuart area offers a small town vibe. Being able to live in a place where you can see friendly faces at the grocery store and coffee shop is always rewarding.  Better still, Stuart was voted “3rd best small town” to visit by Smithsonian Magazine. Probably because all structures along the coastline are just four stories high.  This makes it easy to see the ocean each morning.

Next, boating and water sports are also great reasons to live in Martin County.  With our exceptional weather, these activities are available year-round.  Better still, locally there are over twenty marinas to launch from!  Of course, fishing is a huge draw and when moving to Martin County you can experience freshwater, inshore saltwater and offshore saltwater fishing.

Ranking in the top three reasons to move to Martin County is the arts.  Downtown Stuart features  a contemporary performing arts theater called The Lyric.  Once a silent movie house in the 1920’s, the Lyric theater is a hub for great shows and benefit events like Dancing with the Martin Stars.  Additionally, the Arts Council of Martin County is also  downtown in the old courthouse building.  This dynamic group features new exhibitions monthly, cocktail mixers and an epic Arts Fest.  This community wide event is hosted along Ocean Drive mid February each year. Notably, White Glove Moving & Storage is proud to be an onsite sponsor each year.  As professional art movers, we understand the importance of crating and proper handling of all art including those that require additional valuation coverage.

Moving to Martin County is a wonderful idea.  If you love supporting local, here one will find wonderful businesses to work with where you can shop locally with pride. The streets are safe and the communities are all welcoming. In conclusion, the community if full of great people and activities.  If you choose to make this your new home, call White Glove Moving & Storage for a complimentary estimate to make your move easy.

Move for Hunger: Mover of the Year!

White Glove Moving, Storage & Delivery is proud to be named “Mover of the Year” for the nationwide non-profit, Move for Hunger.  Recognized as the official charity partner for Bekins Vanlines, Move for Hunger, mobilizes the relocation industry to fight hunger and reduce food waste. To date, the network has collected more than 6,000,000 pounds of food that is more than 5,000,000 meals!

As an active participant, White Glove works with customers in the moving process to donate unwanted- food so it can be put in food pantries rather than landfills.  Since 2013, White Glove has helped ensure over 100,000 lbs. of food has gotten to the Treasure Coast Food Bank and other food distribution points to help families who are food insecure.

Though customers who move help supply a steady stream of non-perishable food items throughout the year, the biggest impact are the two community-wide food drives our moving company hosts. By working with our local chambers of commerce and contacts, an email and social media campaign is released at the start of summer break and again just before Thanksgiving. The request is simple: Care to be a food drive box host?  For those who commit, which dozens do, the logistics are simple. White Glove Moving delivers empty boxes and a few weeks later returns to pick up full boxes. Many businesses and communities use hosting a box to reach out to others and get their staff, customers and neighbors to donate food.  Once the food drive concludes all businesses who contribute are recognized publicly and some are even featured on local radio.

Currently over 50 businesses are hosting boxes with pick up scheduled the week of December 12th.  The goal is to reach 2,000 lbs. of food to help ensure as many folks as possible enjoy a delicious holiday feast.  Thank you to all who are participating throughout the Treasure Coast.  Participating businesses are broken down by city:

White Glove: BBB Torch Award Winner for Business Ethics

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.
