4 Ways To Make Your Move To Charleston Easy

You have finally decided to move to one of the premier beach towns in South Carolina – Charleston! Congratulations on the decision because you're about to experience a refined lifestyle that cannot be imitated anywhere else in the country.



But before you start imagining the new lifestyle you are about to enjoy, you first have to actually move your belongings to the new residence. It's without a doubt that moving can be challenging and time consuming but with a few moving tips, you can be on your way out of your old place and in Charleston before you know it!



It might sound pretty basic or common, but it's important to have a big supply of moving boxes! Along with the boxes, have plenty of packing tape and permanent markers to label and seal each box with the contents – this makes it easier during the unpacking process to identify where things go later. Additionally, have bubble wrap and newspapers on hand to protect fragile items like picture frames, glassware and more. As a general rule of thumb, be sure to select sturdy packing boxes because the distance between your old home and the new one in Charleston may be quite the ride so you'll want boxes that can withstand the trip.


Moving Truck

Of course you're going to need some large vehicle to transport all of your belongings and one of the easiest ways to do-it-yourself is by renting a moving truck. This versatile trucks can literally be filled to the brim with household belongings and generally provide enough room to haul everything if you opt for the largest size. Best of all is that some moving truck companies have locations in Charleston so you could book a one-way rental and save money when you are done with the truck.


Hand Truck

For the speediest way to carry your boxes into the moving truck, make sure you have a hand truck, also known as a dolly, in your possession. This tool can help you move multiple boxes at a time by stacking them on top of each other and they have wheels! Hand trucks also are beneficial when you are moving large furniture like tables and couches because they can typically fit onto one.


Moving Company

Perhaps you just want to pack up your belongings and let a crew of moving professionals haul around your items. This gives you the freedom to sit back and relax because you won't have to lift a finger as the moving crew packs up their truck. You can find many local moving companies in Charleston or the surrounding area that could come to your location and bring you back to your new town. To find a local mover, ask a South Carolina real estate guide because they may have company recommendations for incoming residents.
