Moving to Martin County?

Moving to Martin County is very exciting and the reasons to do so seem almost endless!

Luckily, if this is a move you were considering our team of professional movers have composed a list. First and foremost, the Stuart area offers a small town vibe. Being able to live in a place where you can see friendly faces at the grocery store and coffee shop is always rewarding.  Better still, Stuart was voted “3rd best small town” to visit by Smithsonian Magazine. Probably because all structures along the coastline are just four stories high.  This makes it easy to see the ocean each morning.

Next, boating and water sports are also great reasons to live in Martin County.  With our exceptional weather, these activities are available year-round.  Better still, locally there are over twenty marinas to launch from!  Of course, fishing is a huge draw and when moving to Martin County you can experience freshwater, inshore saltwater and offshore saltwater fishing.

Ranking in the top three reasons to move to Martin County is the arts.  Downtown Stuart features  a contemporary performing arts theater called The Lyric.  Once a silent movie house in the 1920’s, the Lyric theater is a hub for great shows and benefit events like Dancing with the Martin Stars.  Additionally, the Arts Council of Martin County is also  downtown in the old courthouse building.  This dynamic group features new exhibitions monthly, cocktail mixers and an epic Arts Fest.  This community wide event is hosted along Ocean Drive mid February each year. Notably, White Glove Moving & Storage is proud to be an onsite sponsor each year.  As professional art movers, we understand the importance of crating and proper handling of all art including those that require additional valuation coverage.

Moving to Martin County is a wonderful idea.  If you love supporting local, here one will find wonderful businesses to work with where you can shop locally with pride. The streets are safe and the communities are all welcoming. In conclusion, the community if full of great people and activities.  If you choose to make this your new home, call White Glove Moving & Storage for a complimentary estimate to make your move easy.

Bound Moving Price vs. By the Hour: Moving Estimates

Moving can be stressful. Getting pricing can be overwhelming. Since all treasure coast movers are not created equal, it is important to figure out what the different terms mean. What is a bound moving price? Is non-bound pricing better for me? What are things to be look for in the moving estimate? Consequently, White Glove Moving and Storage has years of experience in the industry that can help.

Bound pricing: A bound moving price means whatever the price is listed to be; it is. The scope of the work is clearly spelled out and so long as the customer does not change what they need done, the price will remain the same.  Not all moving companies feel comfortable in providing bound pricing.  Mostly because there are a lot of variables that effect how long a move will take. Are there stairs or elevators? Will it rain? Will more packing be needed? What time of year are they moving? However, at White Glove Moving & Storage, we are very comfortable in providing bound pricing with our local moves because it provides a great sense of security to the customer. There are no surprises in the end and everyone can budget ahead of time whether it is financially or in regards to dedicating the right amount of labor and time.

Non-bound: This means that the estimate has been performed and has taken into account all the customer’s wants and needs.  However, the pricing is essentially an educated guess. As a result, the cost of the move can fluctuate. It can go up or it can go down. When customers are still in the downsizing process, plan to have a large sale to sell off unwanted items or may wish to have some furniture go with the sale of the property; it makes sense to have a good idea of cost but not a bound number.

In the end, the price will take into account all travel, labor, materials and fuel. More times that not it is pretty close to the projected price yet instances arise that cause the number to change drastically. For example, as moving day approaches the customer can not find the time to pack as they had hoped. Now the professional moving company needs to perform a full pack, providing all labor and materials. The estimated price will be very different from the final number generated once all services are rendered.

When moving out of state this is a common way to provide pricing. Primarily because weight matters in long distance moves. Each pound will have a direct effect on the final cost, as will the time of year when the out of state move is being performed. For more information on how that works, check out Bekin’s Rights and Responsibilities.

By the hour: There are plenty of times when customers just need help with the heavy lifting.  In that instance, a formal estimate is not needed as it is simply labor that is required. Or if the customer is not available to meet with an estimator, yet can explain or  share pictures of the items; that is another great example of a by the hour price. By the hour is just the labor cost, per man per hour multiplied by the time the job takes and the fuel associated with it.

Most reputable moving companies will provide a formal, in-home estimate at no charge.  This is a necessity when requesting a bound moving estimate. Additionally, no deposits are typically required when it comes to a move being performed by an ethical moving company locally. Nationwide moves differ a bit in regards to payment.  Standard operating procedures are to collect payment prior to unloading the delivery at destination when moving out of state.  Types of acceptable payment include: credit card, cashier check or money order. No personal checks or cash accepted in interstate moves.

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.
