Moving Out of State? Why Choose a Professional Mover?

Moving out of state is a comprehensive process.  At White Glove Moving & Storage, we know that there are many steps involved.  Click here for a calendar to help time your steps accordingly.

That is why, aligning with a reputable van line is important to ensure the move is done well. More importantly, with all the necessary checks/balances in place. Hiring less than reputable movers can prove to be a gamble as many “rogue movers” hold items hostage or fail to ever deliver. Mainly because,  they have no one to hold them accountable.  In 2017, White Glove Moving & Storage saw a higher demand for quicker turnarounds in out of state moves.  As a result, we and chose to become a Bekins Agent.  Though they have nearly 130 years in the  industry, it was primarily their vetting process and commitment to excellence that helped our team to make the switch.  Federal regulations can make moving over state lines a bit daunting. Knowing our reputation is the key to our decades of success then and now, choosing Bekins as our interstate agent was a great fit.

Today, White Glove Moving & Storage is proud to share that we have the title, for the second year in a row, of  Spire Award winner. This distinctive award, honors moving companies that consistently provide an excellent interstate moving experience for their customers.

“Our goal as a van line is to focus on our customers,” said A.J. Schneider, Executive Vice President of Bekins. “We’re proud to announce that White Glove Moving & Storage did such a wonderful job of treating people well in 2018 that they have achieved this distinction of quality.”

The Spire Award program recognizes moving companies in the Bekins van line network that deliver a quality experience to customers. A combination of customer feedback and other service excellence performance metrics throughout the moving process factor into the formula for choosing winners.

White Glove’s headquarters are in the Treasure Coast of Florida, yet we perform moves throughout the state. Especially for folks moving into or out of our geographical area.  Whether the move is local to Florida or an interstate relocation through Bekins van lines, the estimate is always free. Our educated relocation specialists are happy to address all questions as they arise.  Our team works with our customers every step of the way. We are proud to make moving easy.  772-78-750

 

Women’s Council of Realtors Florida Mover

Since 2013, White Glove Moving & Storage has been an active local strategic partner for the Women’s Council of Stuart-Martin, Port St. Lucie and Jupiter Tequesta Hobe Sound.  Knowing that realtor referrals are strong within the Women’s Council family, White Glove Moving & Storage was excited to step up on a state level to show our support for the organization and its ongoing efforts to provide education, relationship building and fun to the world of real estate throughout our great state.

Hurricane Michael Relief Efforts: It Takes a Village

Hats off to all the amazing residents, business partners and staff throughout the #TreasureCoast area and #IndianRiverCounty for all that was contributed to make our relief effort run to the Panhandle of Florida on October 26th, 2018 a success.  The town of Malone, hard hit by Hurricane Michael, was grateful to receive the thousands of pounds of supplies.  Greeted by the the Mayor himself, the National Guard and other first-responders all hands were on deck, ready to help unload.

“It’s amazing to see what can be done when we all link up to help,” commented Jennifer Toby who  headed up the organizational efforts alongside Marty Zickert of the Veterans Council of Indian River County.  Starting with a phone call immediately following impact, the team at White Glove Moving & Storage was able to send a truck to mobilize to West Palm Beach to pick up several thousand MRE’s for shipment to the Panhandle via commuter planes on October 12th.  Thanks to the generosity of Islamorada Brewery, crews were able to store items there which was close to the St. Lucie County airport to shuttle the “ready to eat” meals to the planes once clearance was given.

From that point, in just two weeks, several thousands pounds of food and supplies were raised by local groups and residents. Honorable mentions must be given to the Community Church of Vero, the Indian River Food Pantry, Remax Associated Realty, Dale Sorensen Real Estate, the Robin Raiff EXP Real Estate Team and Walking Tree Brewery who all went above and beyond to gather supplies that were much needed for the town of Malone.  White Glove Moving once again mobilized a truck and crew, this time driving all the way to City Hall in Malone.  While many roads were open, there was still much devastation and debris everywhere. Many areas were still without power or were operating on marginal means.

“Being in a position to be able to give back and offer much needed help by using our movers and trucks is really rewarding,” remarked Caleb Clements, President of White Glove Moving & Storage.  To date, the White Glove team along with the many wonderful people of our Treasure Coast community raised and moved more than 30,000 lbs of goods to the area. As movers with big hearts, White Glove welcomes the opportunity to assist when available especially to our fellow Florida neighbors.

Should you know of anyone moving and wish to recommend our community, our team would greatly appreciate the referrals as we hope to continually be a resource for folks needing help with the heavy lifting.  Free estimates and more information available by calling 772-778-4750.

Moving Makes Burgess’ Family Dreams Come True

August 28th, 2018 marked the day the Burgess family was able to officially move into their new space. Thanks to the help of the St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity, St. Lucie Battery & Tire and White Glove Moving & Storage, an adequate wheelchair accessible house is now where Passion and her family can call home.

After being hit by a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting in 2005, Passion Burgess was left a paraplegic at the age of 18.  Enduring physical therapy and a pregnancy at the same time, Passion found faith and hope and was able to give birth to a healthy boy, Elijah.  This story of overcoming and beating the odds is inspiring and her motto of “once you take the DIS out of DISABILITY, you have the ABILITY to do anything” really had business partner throughout the Treasure Coast eager to step up and lend a hand.

“One of the joys of working with Habitat is the extraordinary people who work with us. Passion Burgess is a remarkable woman who has persevered and worked through challenges I can barely imagine. Her light and determination is an inspiration to all. Her school students are privileged to have her as their teacher.” – Bob Calhoun, Executive Director, St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity

 

Committed to giving back to the community, members of St. Lucie Battery & Tire volunteered on July 7th and laid sixteen pallets of sod for the Burgess family.  The enthusiastic team of auto mechanics and tire experts sponsored the home and hosted the house dedication on August 11th, 2018. At the ceremony dedication, SLBT donated a brand-new electric lawn mower to Elijah, the oldest son, to keep the lawn looking good.  “Passion and her family are an inspiration to our entire team,” Lindsey Concannon, Marketing Director at SLBT.

 

Once finishing touches were made to this newly constructed home, a professional crew at White Glove Moving & Storage assisted by moving the Burgess family from their apartment in Ft. Pierce to their new home, full of handicap accessible amenities, in Lakewood Park. In a matter of hours, beds were assembled, furniture was placed, and boxes were organized by room making their transition that much easier.  “It is rewarding to be able to give back simply by doing what we do best,” Caleb Clements, President of White Glove Moving & Storage said, “We enjoy a close relationship with Habitat for Humanity as well as St. Lucie Battery & Tire, when we can help in circumstances such as this it is a joy for all our team of movers and office staff to get on board and help make a family’s dream a reality.”

In this new space, Passion and her family’s lives will be changed for the better.  Life will be simpler, the neighborhood will be safe, and it will give them a sense of normalcy they never have experienced.

Moving is stressful yet there is additional stress to be had when moving with kids. How do you juggle it all and make it fun for your children? White Glove has some great suggestions on how to make it memorable and depending on your kids ages, a much easier experience for both parent and child.

Another great suggestion is to sympathize with your little one through reading.  Here are a few examples of our favorites:

*A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle/ Children struggling with change — outgrowing clothes, for example, or moving to a new school or town — will find reassurance in this gentle, original fable from Eric Carle, the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

*A Kiss Goodbye by Audrey Penn/ Chester Raccoon  is facing another dilemma common to the lives of many children: he and his family are moving.

But most of the time he likes it right where he is. So when his mom and dad say that they’re moving a thousand miles away, Alexander decides that he’s not going.

*The Berenstain Bears’ Moving Day by Stan Berenstain &  Jan Berenstain

*The Leaving Morning by Angela Johnson Illustrated by David Soman/ An African-American family moves from their city apartment into a new home, invoking all the joy, sorrow, anxiety, and hurry of moving day.

In-Home Moving and Short Term Storage Solutions

At White Glove Moving we understand that not all “moving” needs are for taking items from one home to the next. In fact, it is quite common this time of year to need help with the heavy lifting when it comes to furniture and electronics to simply get them out of the way during deep cleaning and remodeling projects.

Whether you choose to have your items wrapped and stored in your home/garage or if you prefer for it all to come into our secure, climate-controlled warehouse, we can make those projects easier by getting it all up and out so the work can be done with no hurdles.

Working with a designer? We love to help designers in projects and be there for them when it comes to properly placing and hanging items. It would be our pleasure to make their vision come to life.

Happy Spring!
