Charleston Movers

Moving in and/or out of a city can pose several challenges for an individual and is often best left to a professional moving company. Some issues that arise with downtown, and city moves, will be discussed on this page. Ready Set Movers specializes in downtown moves and offers its services to Charleston and the surrounding areas.

Tight spaces are a given with old cities, especially Charleston. When people try to move themselves and rent a rental truck, such as a U-haul, Penske or Budget truck they don’t take into consideration how narrow some of the roads are, how low a lot of the older trees hang and most importantly roads that do not allow trucks to drive down.

Another moving issue to consider when moving in, or out of, downtown Charleston is parking. It is hard to double park on a lot of these narrow streets because it will block traffic in both directions. Unless you are lucky and find on street parking in front of the home you will need to look into permits. The city of Charleston can issue a parking permit for your move. This is something Ready Set Movers takes care of for their customers and in the end saves customers money on their move because the distance from house to truck is much shorter resulting in fewer labor hours.

HOW TO PACK A BOX (1 of 10):


Great for moving books and smaller heavier items!

HOW TO PACK A BOX (1 of 10)
1.Books should be packed in book boxes (1.5 cubic feet). These types of boxes can roughly withstand 40-45lbs. Do NOT pack books in larger boxes. The weight of excess books will most likely destroy the boxes during your move.

More people moving into SC than out

Found this story from the South Carolina Association of REALTORS facebook page http://www.southcarolinaradionetwork.com/2011/01/03/more-people-moving-into-sc-than-out/ (by Matt Long on January 3, 2011). Great read and couldn’t agree more! That is why we opened up Ready Set Movers, LLC in Charleston.
It’s not your imagination. More people are moving into South Carolina than are moving out of it.
According to the moving company United Van Lines, South Carolina is one of the top states for people moving in. United said 56 percent of its business in South Carolina involved those moving in, among the ten best in the country.
The company annually releases figures detailing its more than 150,000 customers among the lower 48 states.
North Carolina was slightly ahead of the Palmetto State at 57.5 percent. The District of Columbia was tops in the country, at 64 percent.
New Jersey had the most people moving out, as nearly 63 percent of the moves were outbound. The Great Lakes states, especially Michigan and Ohio, also had a lot of outbound moves.
While United is, granted, just one company, company officials maintain its migration tracking has accurately reflected population trends since the studies began in 1977.
