Getting to Know Your West Columbia Moving Company

Getting to Know Your West Columbia Moving Company

The smile on day 7 looks the same as the one on day 1.

Over the course of a typical year, our West Columbia moving company, Lange Moving Systems, handles a wide range of different types of moves. We cover the spectrum from moving small apartments within a single day to very large residential moves and commercial relocations that can take a week or even longer. On those long, complex moving projects, the clients learn just how important it is to choose a moving company that doesn’t just do the job, but also brings a great attitude to the job—day after day until the entire project is complete. It’s not an overstatement to say that this attitude makes the difference between a miserable, stressful week and a pleasant, exciting one!

Why is This Taking So Long?

Our largest residential moving projects take about a week from beginning to end. A typical breakdown is four or five days at the origin and two or three days at the destination. To someone with a smaller home who is used to loading everything onto a single truck on a Friday evening and Saturday, this might seem like an eternity. Why so much time for a single move?

Welcome to the Lange Moving Systems podcast! We’re glad you chose to listen, and we hope you enjoy learning a little about the moving industry and about our company, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in August 2017. On our blog, we’ve been talking recently about the ways that the industry has changed since we opened for business here in Columbia, South Carolina back in 1997. But right now, we want to talk about the exact opposite: the things that are just as true today as they were when our moving teams taped up their first box in the Palmetto State.

Columbia Movers: Handle with Care!

Columbia Movers: Handle with Care!

Container

We’ll begin by telling you this: Each of our Columbia movers treats each of our customers as if they were members of their own family, caring for their furniture and treasured belongings as though they were their own. In fact, the high level of attention that we devote to each relocation job has been a hallmark of Lange Moving Systems for 20 years now, and we don’t plan to change that any time soon. One of our co-owners, Chuck and Kym Lange, is personally involved in every move, and we get the customer’s feedback at many points during the move to find out how satisfied they are with the service they’re receiving. With all of that being said, there are a few moves that require us to devote even more attention to the protection of the items that we are moving. Today we’d like to tell you about how we handle antiques, artwork, and other irreplaceable treasures to give them the safety on the road that they deserve.

Inspection Blitz? No Problem for Our Lexington Movers!

Have you ever been driving down the highway and noticed one, two, three, then a fourth police car “waiting in the wings”? One of two things is going on; either you are being much more observant than you normally are, or the state highway patrol is in the middle of a blitz. If you typically drive a few miles over the speed limit, you probably back it off a bit when you realize there are a lot more eyes watching the roads.

Unusual Challenges for our Sumter Movers

Unusual Challenges for our Sumter Movers

Packing up a family’s entire collection of belongings, loading it into a truck, and moving it to a new house is a huge task, but it’s one that our great teams of Sumter movers is trained for. They know how to wrap delicate items carefully, protect items for a long trip, and do it all quickly enough to meet the deadlines. But sometimes just getting our movers to the customer’s house in the first place is a complex challenge of its own! Military installments are known for their security, and for good reason. But when we are hired to help a military family move onto or off a base, sometimes the security issues can cause some serious challenges. Here’s a closer look at those challenges and how our Sumter movers meet them.

Movers are Ready

In our last two blogposts, we told you about the many projects that our Columbia and Orangeburg movers were involved in throughout 2016. If anything, we anticipate being even busier over the coming year! Changes in the national economy, military, and the local business environment in South Carolina all promise to bring more people and companies to the state in the near future, and at Lange Moving Systems, we are ready to help them. Here’s a look forward at what we are expecting in 2017 as well as a look at how Lange Moving Systems is working closely with Arpin Van Lines this year to help the entire parent company get even better at what it does.

Incoming, South Carolina!

We can identify three big areas that we think are going to see significant growth in South Carolina over the next year or so. These three areas are affected by developments at both the national and state levels, and they will undoubtedly be accompanied by an increase in demand for Columbia, Lexington, and Orangeburg movers.

Columbia Movers
Last month, we began our two-part blogpost about all the exciting projects and developments that took place here at Lange Moving Systems in 2016. Today, we tell you about the rest of the things that our West Columbia movers were up to last year. We hope you enjoy our annual “family newsletter”!

Giving Back to Columbia

Columbia, SC is our community, and our company makes it a point to do all that we can to give back to it through many different efforts. The holidays present unique opportunities for our West Columbia movers to help out those in need, with projects like delivering Christmas presents to the Hannah House women’s shelter—something that has become a yearly tradition for Lange Moving Systems. A moving truck is of great use in a situation like that, and we’re so happy to be able to donate the time and equipment to help out. Read More West Columbia Movers: A Look Back at 2016 (Part 2 of 2)
