Tips for Planning a Move During Covid

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.

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.

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.

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.
