Moving Books for Kids of Various Ages

Without a doubt, moving can be quite stressful. In fact, most people fear packing the most because of years of accumulation. Yet, if you are moving with kids, or even if you are not, packing can be the best part. Mainly, it allows you a chance to get organized again. Better still, it allows you to figure out what you do and don’t need. Thereafter, it is likely someone else gets to benefit from the stuff you no longer want. Moreover as you sort you can reflect and that is always rewarding. However, for kids, this can be challenging depending on their age and attachment to the home. So, though there are lots of cool ways to get them focusing on the positive of a move, books can help do the rest.

Hence, White Glove Moving & Storage has come up with a read aloud featuring a number of great books to share with kids. Also, it is a great idea to purchase a book or two and together write how they are feeling in the covers of the books. Then, down the road you can take the books back out and read about their fears or excitement and evaluate how it worked out. Important to mention, should you hire a mover this summer, rest assured at White Glove we are adhering to all CDC protocol and are able to help you get into your new home safely.

Firstly, the Berenstein Bears Moving Day. As a fan of the series, this is an easy book with great images geared to children ten and under. As always, the message is wholesome and describes how change can be difficult yet typically not as bad as projected.

Next, another moving book geared towards elementary school aged or even toddlers is Tigger’s Moving Day. Of course, we all know and love Winnie the Pooh and all his pals; however, did you know how Tigger chose his tree house? Well, join Anna Valencia Tillery on this reading to see if it’s a good fit for your family.

Another option, try I Like Where I Am. In this book, discover how tough change can be for a six year old boy yet how rewarding it can be too. As a bonus, this one is full of rhythms and great illustrations.

Finally, for our first batch of moving books, this one is for girls or perhaps boys nine to fourteen. Written by Meg Cabot, this is a a witty book.  Most certainly, moving as you get a bit older can be challenging and in this first book of a series Allie Finkle tells it like is. Best part, your child can find a new character to learn and grow with since there are other books to follow.

In conclusion, it is likely you have your own questions about moving. Likely, you too are overwhelmed and feeling like you bit off too much as a parent with covid and the like. Yet, as Treasure Coast moving experts, you can count us to make it easier. Perhaps, you need some short term storage while you do some repairs in your new space? We do that.  Or, you want to get rid of a number of items after all. Not to worry, we can help with donation locations too. If you are planning a move, call your trusted community partners at White Glove to be an ongoing resource as you begin the process.

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.

Moving during covid-19

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.

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.

 

3 Years of the Vero Premier Women’s Network

Three years ago, the Vero Premier Women’s Network was born.  Co-founders, VP of Marketing for White Glove, Anna Valencia Tillery and Cheryl Friar of the Florida Premier Women’s Network set forth to create a positive networking group.  From the beginning the rules were simple, “ladies only” fostering their ability to network and public speak.  Since the beginning, Regency Independent Living has been our sponsor venue.  This gorgeous retirement community can seat upwards of 80 ladies in its formal dining room. However, with renovations freshly complete, our growing group has been moved to the ballroom.  Now the space can seat up to 100 women comfortably.  Better still, the gorgeous salad and dessert bar will be in the room with the attendees for ease of serving and keeping the group together.

 

Over the years, White Glove Moving & Storage has been able to help support the Vero Premier Women’s Networt  by underwriting its hard costs such as website, name tags and signage. Additionally, the premier moving company allows Mrs. Valencia Tillery the ability to spend the time needed each month to promote the event, find speakers, handle reservations, update the website and host the luncheon each month.

Image may contain: Millie Del Grosso, Nicole Haagenson and Anna Valencia Tillery, people smiling, people standing

Like clockwork, the second Friday of each month, ladies start rolling in around 11:15 am. Guests mix and mingle, fill their glasses from the array of teas, infused waters and juices then make plates from an amazing spread. The culinary team at Regency wows the group each month with gorgeous toppings and delightful proteins like chicken, shrimp and salmon. Over a dozen dessert options are also presented. While guests dine, a female speaker presents highlighting topics ranging from personal development to business best practices and healthy habits.  Thereafter, each woman in attendance is able to give a 30 second commercial. These short public speaking moments allow them to promote themselves, special or event.  Once all have had a chance to participate, testimonials are then shared.  This is an opportunity to ladies to say something nice about their experiences with other ladies in the group. The positive messages are weaved in between door prizes that are brought into the meeting by guests so their business can be mentioned again.

 

After three years, attendance continues to grow and the Vero Premier Women’s Network members are able to continue to bond with one another. Regency continues to be our host venue and has been an intricate part in the overall success of the group.  Presently, the group also helps two local non-profits annually with tangible items they need to be a success. Thus far we have been able to assist: Little Birthday Angels, Gifford Youth Achievement Center, Feed the Lambs Enrichment Program and Next Gen Vets.

In conclusion, for recommendations on speakers or to be included in the monthly emails please contact AnnaV@WhiteGloveUSA.net.

Sleep Number Bed Movers

The importance of a quality night’s sleep is something that has become a very hot talking point in America. It seems like there are mattress store popping up everywhere! Just like not all movers are created equal, nor are beds.  That is why our White Glove Moving & Storage team set out to earn additional training to become Sleep Number bed movers.  Because in our years of experience, this is the one style of bed that owners will not trust to just anyone to move.

Perhaps it is because of such great features as  IndividualFitallowing Sleep Number® bed adjusts to you, relieving pressure points. For several years in a row this specialty bed has been voted #1 IN VALUE, #1 IN COMFORT, #1 IN SUPPORT & #1 IN FEATURES for J.D. Power. Additional features of these great beds include letting you choose  your ideal firmness, comfort, and support on each side — your Sleep Number® setting in the Sleep Number 360®smart bed. Better still, throughout the night, the bed senses your every move and automatically adjusts to keep you both effortlessly comfortable.  Followed by the next morning evaluating your sleep by checking your SleepIQ® score — with personalized insights for your best sleep.  The bed even provides pre-warming so you can fall asleep faster. Does your partner snore?  Sleep Number 360® smart bed can gently raise your partner’s head to help relieve mild snoring.

In conclusion, with an investment as important as the perfect bed for you and your partner. It does not make sense to trust that responsibility of ensuring its safe transport and warranty with a less than qualified moving company.  As you can see, this bed is more than just a mattress and a box spring. It requires knowledge of the bed and its functions to help make breakdown and reassembly possible.  After additional training in the Jensen Beach store, White Glove Moving & Storage is now fully accredited to make moving your Sleep Number bed along with all your other household items easy and cost effective.  Additionally, when it comes to local deliveries, if the bed is all you need moved, we can do that too.  At White Glove, we are proud to provide top notch quality and ongoing training, becoming Sleep Number Bed movers is just one way we help set ourselves apart from the rest.
