Usually, a professional move is scheduled months in advance giving you plenty of time to plan for unforeseen circumstances. But what happens in an emergency when you need to pack and move out at a moment’s notice? In a time of crisis, the stress of moving can be multiplied and even overwhelming. A house fire, flooding, hurricane, eviction, or any other type of emergency can make an immediate move seem like an impossible task. Having a company well-experienced in these types of moves can make all the difference in the world.

Knowing which moving company you can trust is a big part of the emergency moving process. Being rushed doesn’t leave you much time to research and go through the traditional vetting and moving quote process. If you are pressed for time, you can save time, energy, and stress by utilizing a company that offers full-service pack-out, moving, and storage services. Most of these types of moves are urgent and you won’t have a lot of time to worry about packing and where you will store your belongings. Sunshine Movers is an experienced emergency moving company located in Sarasota and serving much of the tri-coastal area from Tampa to Naples and beyond.

Sunshine Movers has been in the moving business since 2013. During that time, we have seen our fair share of urgent emergency moves requiring immediate assistance. Sunshine Movers has handled emergency moves during hurricanes and other natural disasters year after year.

There are many reasons to hire emergency moving service, however we understand not every situation is the same. This is why it is so important you choose an emergency moving service provider that knows and understands how to handle the situation you are in. Listed below are some of the reasons clients need emergency moving services.

Hurricane damage

Hurricane damage

When hurricanes strike there are multiple reasons you may need emergency moving services. Damaged roofs can allow water to rain into your home allowing moisture to damage the items inside. Another outcome is a compromised wall or window which if the electricity is out, humidity will begin to damage the home along with the furniture inside.

Emergency water damage

Water damage

When a home is flooded, the items inside must be packed and relocated so that the home can be dried out and, in some instances, renovated. It may also be helpful to place dehumidifiers in the home to dry the items out before sending them to storage.

Fire and smoke damage

In the instance of a fire in the home, smoke and soot can stain and destroy items in the home even if they were not close to the fire itself. In some cases, items can be saved and cleaned if packed and removed from the home soon after the fire.

While we are aware that an unplanned emergency move can often be hectic and stressful, having a reliable and experienced company like Sunshine Movers assisting you through that process can make a difference. We are well-equipped to alleviate your concerns and handle your immediate moving and storage needs.

Average cost for emergency moving services

Each emergency move comes with its own cost therefore you will always need to get a proper estimate and proposal for the work being done. It is also good to know that your insurance may cover the cost of the emergency move. For this reason you should speak with your insurance provider, public adjuster or restoration company to know if your insurance will cover the emergency moving services you may need.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do full-service movers do?

Trusted movers and packers make sure that all your precious and delicate items are packed and moved to the decided destination. You can trust them to move all your items with utmost safety and protection. Also, you can expect a seamless partial or full furniture disassembly/reassembly as needed to your new location.

What is considered a long-distance move?

If your move is more than 400 miles, it is considered a long-distance move. A long-distance move usually refers to the move to another country or state. For this, you will pay for the items you want to move, the overall weight of your items, and the distance you cover (in miles). It is similar to an international move except for the distance and customs clearance conditions. No matter what the distance covered, Sunshine Movers will move you efficiently and safely. Connect with us any time to plan your next move.

What won't sunshine movers move?

Professional movers and packers usually don’t move harmful items such as nitric acid, muriatic acid, and batteries. Apart from this, they also don’t include items like valuables, important documents, cash, certificates, and jewelry in their moving list.
