Moving This Summer?

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.

A few tips for moving with kids.

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.
