Hurricane Preparedness, White Glove Moving Can Help!

Starting in June, Hurricane Season has begun lasting through October each year.  In the beautiful state of Florida, hurricane preparedness is important  in the event of a hurricane.  Thanks to the Crime Prevention Unit, our White Glove Moving team is happy to provide some useful tips to consider; including stocking up on canned goods during routine grocery shopping.

In the event of a big storm, you will need a minimum of one gallon per day for drinking and cooking. Have at least a seven day supply on hand.  This same rule can apply to any medicines or baby formula.  As the storm comes, be sure to turn your refrigerator and freezer to their coldest settings.  Another great hurricane preparedness tip is to scrub and sterilize bathtubs and all available jugs, containers so they too can be filled with water.

Perhaps one of the biggest threats in a storm are outside objects. If not tied down or picked up and stored, those items can transform into missiles of destruction.  From patio furniture to small motors and toys, White Glove Moving & Storage is happy to help as the storm nears. Our ability to pick up and store items for as little or as long as needed is  an asset to home owners who are seasonal and wish to not return before the hurricane makes landfall. Hurricane preparedness also includes reinforcing the five critical areas: roof, straps, shutters, doors and garage doors.

Another suggestion in  hurricane preparedness is to have extra cash on hand and store all valuable papers, photographs and momentos in waterproof bags or containers.  Before the storm hits and power goes out, be sure to fill up vehicles with gas and stock up on batteries for flashlights as well as bug spray.

Remember, do not touch fallen or low hanging wires.  Pay attention to instructions from official sources and notify them right away of any “live” lines or broken gas/water mains. After power is restored, check food for spoilage.

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

 

Nearly 1.5 Tons of Food Raised During the 6th Annual White Glove Moving Holiday Food Drive

The holidays just got a lot brighter thanks to the efforts of over 55 Treasure Coast businesses, gated communities, networking groups, customers and one very driven moving company.  During the sixth annual White Glove Moving holiday food drive, over 2800 pounds of food was collected and delivered to the Treasure Coast Food Bank which equates to roughly 4,700 meals for the 200,000 food insecure families throughout Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties.

Not only did the food drive exceed its goal by nearly a thousand pounds, it also served as an opportunity for folks to discuss the severity of the food needs in our area as the Treasure Coast Food Bank embarks upon its 30th year of helping to fight hunger.

A contest for each county was conducted to stimulate giving.  In Indian River County the winner for most amount of non-perishable food was Cravings and The Beached Whale located on Ocean Drive in Vero Beach who managed to fill entire drums full of food.  In St. Lucie county, Branca Realty stepped up with nearly an entire truck load of goods from bottle water and diapers to canned food. Martin County’s top producer was Florida Non-Emergency Medical Transportation – MTM Inc who collected more than four boxes full of holiday inspired food.  A special thank you to all who participated based on the county.

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 Moving, Storage & Delivery: The One & Only

With the term “white glove” being used more and more often it can be confusing to identify the service versus a business name.

Merriam-Webster defines “white glove” as:  marked by special care or attention :  meticulous white–glove service.  

From high end  home furnishing stores to consignment shops, many businesses offer “white glove delivery” meaning the items are brought inside and placed but not all “white glove services” live up to the White Glove Moving, Storage & Delivery way .

Yes, we fully embrace the White Glove definition in every move we do, yet we are so much more than just another moving company.  We are professional  movers who really strive to make moving easier for our customers. Our team of trained workers genuinely care about the customer’s experience during such a stressful time.  As an agent with Bekins Vanlines, we are able to help folks move into and out Florida doing as much or as little as requested by our customers to assist with moves of all sizes.

Voted Most Trusted Mover every year since 2013, we are proud of the reputation we have for being a community partner and a reliable moving  service that is always reasonably priced, efficient and courteous.  As an A+ rated business with Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau, we strive to exceed the expectations of our customers and value their referrals and requests. Not all movers are created equal and because we can’t trademark the name White Glove there are other moving companies that sound similar yet  do not live up to the name as much as our team does.  Though we wish all companies with the words White Glove believed in top notch service that isn’t always the case. Our head of marketing, Anna Valencia Tillery explores that topic in this video.

With that in mind, if you are looking for a trustworthy mover to help make your relocation easy whether it is a local move throughout the Treasure Coast or a long distance move either into our out of Florida; we’d love to assist! Please call us today to setup a free estimate and find out how pleasurable and fast your move can be by using  a professional moving company like White Glove Moving, Storage & Delivery.
