Once You are Signed Up with Us, here is What You Need to Know.
It is important to note that Smart Move is registered with the State of Florida Dept. of Business & Professional Regulations, Division of Hotels and Restaurants, and our short-term rentals operate under a Hotel License. This License gives us the authority of immediate tenant eviction for non-payment of rent and misbehavior. It also ensures that we maintain higher standards of accommodation. It allows us to obtain personal information on a tenant, and a comprehensive tenant registration form is required at check-in.
Guest Satisfaction Is Our Goal!
Reservations with us are quick and easy making it convenient for our guests. Our ultimate goal is to ensure all guests become repeat guests. The safety and security of your property is our paramount concern and to ensure your property is secure we have entry and exit doors that operate with electronic coded locks. This gives us control of tenant occupation. These codes are changed after every tenant vacates. We keep a very strict control over these codes ensuring you peace of mind.
We perform periodic property inspections of all our short-term rental properties which ensures constant upkeep and both preventative and proactive maintenance eliminating larger problems.
