What to Know When Moving Post Covid

 

Though the world as we knew it shut down in March of 2020 due to the pandemic, a whole new trend emerged; the ability to work from anywhere. Thus, many families and professionals found solace in being able to move back to their hometowns or seek new lifestyles outside of densely populated cities. That freedom directly launched a nationwide uptick in real estate transactions. Which then also created added volume to the ancillary businesses that support the real estate agents; all during a time when labor force was at an all time low.

Planning a move in 2021 into 2022? Here’s a few things to keep in mind from the Treasure Coast’s most trusted moving and storage providers, interstate agents with Bekins Vanlines, White Glove Moving & Storage.

  1. Schedule in Advance.

Pre-covid it was common for a company White Glove’s size, 16 trucks and nearly 50 full time employees, could service a local or an interstate move with as little as 7-14 days’ notice. However, with nationwide labor low and pockets of covid outbreaks still occurring, it is highly recommended to book your survey and discuss moving dates before even listing your property. Many top-rated companies are booking out 4-6 weeks in advance for both local and nationwide moving services; don’t delay.

 

  1. Accountability.

Many smaller movers bid low with a non-bound price that is sure to go up, require a deposit and then come moving day are unable to service your move. Why? They want the work but run into weather delays or labor shortages that make it impossible to show up when you need them most. On average our White Glove office receives 3-5 calls daily with devastated consumers who had “no-show” movers. When your moving date is critical to uphold, you need to know you are hiring movers that are accountable to show up and stick by their price which is based on: experience, reputation and a sound foundation.

 

  1. Used Materials.

Due to covid liability, used boxes and other materials are not available as before. Thus, make sure to get an idea of how much material you will need to pack yourself when receiving your free moving quote. Often, professional movers such as White Glove will offer material discounts if hired as the moving partner and will arrange for box delivery. Packing kits are also available for purchase at White Glove’s office located at 2175 45th St in Vero Beach for those looking to pack up for a home remodel or estate downsizing project and not in need of hiring a moving company. Keep in mind, if you wish to have your professional moving team do the packing it can be arranged cost effectively and all materials will be new.

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.

Moving safely during covid-19

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.

Truckload of Love

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.
