Moving Over July 4th or During the Summer

Selling a home in Gastonia North Carolina during the springtime/summer months, with the limited inventories many communities face, can be a challenging ordeal. One never knows whether the home will sell on the first day it appears in the listings or if it will take 2 months to get the right offer accepted, processed, and closed. Predicting when a sale will take place and when your actual moving day will be is also difficult to judge. If you have school-aged kids remember to plan your move early enough to get settled into our new home and get everyone registered for school early. Another important consideration is choosing the right moving company to help you move and then help you settle into your new home whether across town, the state, or the nation. Whenever you are planning a move around a holiday or during busy summer months, choosing a moving company in Gastonia NC that is large enough to handle a move at any time of the year is paramount to success. For many so-called moving companies, having the resources to execute a move when they are busy can be challenging if not near impossible. At Tru-Pak Moving Systems we have been serving the needs of Gastonia residents since 1960 and we are one of the largest independent moving companies in North America. Below are some useful tips to consider when choosing a moving company, whose moving inventories might be filled and who might make you a promise that they just can’t keep.

How Large is the Moving Company You Plan on Hiring?

There are many types and sizes of moving companies servicing our communities these days. A few strong backs and a truck, local weekend rental businesses, summer moving warriors, city and town movers, and of course full-service moving and storage companies usually associated with a national company. At Tru-Pak Moving Systems we are a locally owned licensed, bonded, and insured independent agent for United Van Lines. We pride ourselves on being large enough to handle any size moving project, residential, commercial, business and employee relocation, and even freight and equipment moving. No matter the size, distance, time of year, or complexity of the move we can handle it.

What are the Moving Company Rates During Peak Times?

Always get your moving estimate/quote in writing and clarify if the rates change due to weekends, holidays, or during busy month moves. The last thing you want are any surprises about the rates you are quoted and the rate you are charged especially after the move is completed. Holding hostage furniture and valuables because of a dispute over charges is something you will want to avoid at all costs and some unscrupulous moving companies practice these types of tactics. Also, make sure the moving schedule the moving company agrees to is available and can be completed. Homes that are sold and closed on don’t usually wait on families exiting based on a moving company’s timetable. Be proactive and ready to move with all of your valuables boxed, marked, wrapped, protected, and staged for the movers. This will make your move go quicker and smoother. 

For Do-It-Yourselfers

If you are considering a DIY move, make sure you have everything lined up weeks in advance including help to pack and load. This can be difficult around holidays as many friends and family members like to take a vacation and might not be available when you need them. Try and plan the route in and out of town if moving over a holiday to avoid unnecessary delays in your schedule. Try to consider what can go wrong in your moving project if being accomplished over a weekend or holiday.         

No Need to Stress, With the Right Moving Company

Moving, even a short distance can be a stressful experience, but packing up and moving across the state or the country takes planning, the right resources, and the right moving company to execute on all the fundamentals of moving. That means a lot is riding on the mover you choose, the experience they possess, and how good of a moving company they really are. At Tru-Pak Moving we have spent the last 60 years perfecting our moving services and skills to offer the best moving experience possible, all at an affordable price. We take our responsibilities very seriously and it shows in every move we make. Give us a call at 800-659-1233 and experience the difference we can make in your next moving experience.
