There are 3 different ways to move your belongings:
This residential moving service option usually the cheapest and most risky. When you do long distance moving with trailer you need to know few things. Your items will be moving cross country with few other customers belongings in the same trailer. Truck will be making stops for unloads and new loads, it means your items might be moved or reloaded multiple times. It will increase possibility of damages and mixing your things with other customers, it doesn’t usually happen but there is a possibility of it. How it works our Charleston movers will come and load your items either directly to a trailer if it is available right away or in one of our local trucks and then transfer it to a trailer. You will be given a time frame when your items will be delivered usually it is 1-3 weeks, driver would usually call you 2 days ahead of time to inform about delivery that you cannot miss, because deliveries with trailers are no flexible. If you miss it, truck will pass your unload and you will need to wait more, also additional chargers might be applied depends on the carrier. This option usually the most affordable however it proved to be the longest and less safe from 2 other options.
Contained delivery is safe and sometimes more expensive then trailer delivery, but safer and faster. Our Charleston residential moving company will come and protect all your furniture and large pieces, container will be delivered to your door (if city allows) or we will load your items in one of our local trucks and after take it to container facility. What makes this option safe is that you are the only one who has the key for container and the only one who can access your items. Delivery takes anywhere from 7 to 14 days and sometimes we can store for 1 month for free. This option is very popular. We perform this residential moving service about once a week and it has proven to be very convenient for customers since you can choose a delivery date.
