Its not likely, but you may find them returning Friday or Saturday to finish the job. That stated, if you are waiting to tempt fate by hanging around until the Sheriff tosses you, thats simply a foolish ploy as was forcing the LL to sue for eviction - as now you will have an even harder time finding a place to move to.

Here is a problem--Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Kingcade and I all practice in large metropolitan areas. In fact, Miami to West Palm Beach is part of one metropolitan area with over 6 million people, so the Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Sheriff's Offices tend to be a bit more....flexible? I do not have experience wwith evictions in Polk County, so, my concern is that in a County with a population of less than 800k the Sheriff's Office may be....less flexible.
With Thanksgiving a holiday, and the day of delivery not counting in the 24 hours, Friday would be the 24-hour period, which means that there MIGHT be a knock on the door on Saturday.
If you were here in Palm Beach County I would say probably Monday, but maybe even Tuesday. But, you aren't, so you should be moving heaven and earth to get your possessions out of the premises tomorrow, into a storage unit if need be.
If you think my response was helpful to an understanding the issue please mark it that way. If you think my response was the best answer please mark it as such. Thank you.

Unlikely. You might even get until Monday, which means you have all of today, probably Friday, and the weekend to get all of the possessions you wish to retain moved out. When the deputies come, you will have no time to get anything and you'll be removed from the property. The LL can then put your possessions on the curb. Don't wait until then.
Just because I answer your question does not mean that I am your lawyer, or that you...
Probably not but no one online can give you a guarantee. Your best answer is to move ASAP to avoid be forced out physically. Why wait until the lat minute?
