Moving Safely During Covid19 While Supporting Our Community

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.

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.
