Moving During The Hot Summer Months

Living in the lovely foothills of North Carolina and especially in a resort town like Pinehurst, the summer months mean playing plenty of golf and tennis, backpacking and hiking, swimming pools, parks, ice cream, and BBQ’s. The summer months are also the most active months of the year for the real estate market of buying and selling homes. Whether you are currently renting or are about to buy a mountain cabin in North Carolina, summers are the busiest time of year for moving companies in Pinehurst NC. If you are like most people no one enjoys the moving process, especially if the temperatures reach 90* in the months of June through September. If you also have young children out of school it makes moving all the more challenging. Whether you are moving close to your current home, to the other side of town, or relocating to a completely new city, moving will bring on anxiety for you and your entire family. But moving during the summer months can also be the easiest time of the year to move because it is when children are out of school, workloads for many companies seems to slow down and the majority of workers take their vacations during this time of the year. For your school-aged children, moving during the summer also means registering them in a new school and the opportunity to meet and make new friends where ever you move to. For parents starting a new job or just relocating to a new city means an exciting time that can be enjoyed by all in the friendliest months of the year.

If you find yourself having to move during the summer months, Tru-Pak Moving Systems, North Carolina’s largest independent agent for United Van Lines has some tips that will make your summer move a breeze.

Hire a Moving Company local to Pinehurst

Prior to your completed moving date, preferably 30-45 days before, you should begin searching for a local moving company. You will want to access their website, ask them questions related to all the services they provide, complete an online moving quote to get prices, and review the site for references, warranties, insurance & licensing information. A thoroughly reputable moving company like Tru-Pak Moving will have no problem providing you with this information and you can use it to gauge the other companies you interview. The most important thing is to find the right moving company with a long history of service and an unblemished record of quality and safety. When you decide, the most important features are the services they provide and let the professionals do all the heavy lifting during the warm summer months.

Choosing the Middle of The Month to Book your Move?

Most apartment rental leases expire around the first of every month and many real estate closings take place at the end of the month. That means that at the beginning of each month many movers will be inundated with calls, providing moving quotes and booking moves. It may be advantageous for you to wait until the middle of the month to book your move with many of these so-called moving companies. If you choose Tru-Pak Moving Systems, we offer online and onsite moving quotes and we guarantee your scheduled move out and delivery dates so booking your move at any time of the month is easy for us. We are North Carolina’s largest mover complete with many unique moving services no other company can match. Take our “Moving Coordinator” position, an individual assigned to every move we book or our “Moving Team” of drivers, packers, and delivery personnel assigned to each individual move we make.

Organize Your Move

Moving can be an overwhelming process. Having a well thought out plan to tackle your move is always your best option. On the website, there are helpful guides and tips to make your move a lot easier. You should however start by acquiring the right moving supplies you will need, then go room by room, packing your items, and labeling the boxes accordingly. It is always a good idea to prioritize those items of most importance to be separated from the rest of the items you are packing and keep important documents in a safe and convenient place for fast access. These items should go with you in your car versus being pack away in a moving truck.

Moving is a great excuse to purge all those unwanted items and clean out basements, closets, and cabinets. It can also be a great way of giving back to the community by donating those items to a non-profit organization. Always stay organized and if you decide to tackle the move on your own, stay hydrated and don’t try to accomplish too much, too quickly. Also, be cognizant of heavy items as many a back have been strained lifting items too heavy for one to carry. Tru-Pak Moving has a variety of services available on a full or limited basis like professional packing services for valuable and unique items or make it the whole house and sit back and relax.
