Container

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.

Make Things Easy for Your South Carolina Movers

make-things-easy-for-your-south-carolina-moversIf you have never had a team of South Carolina movers handle your move before, you might feel like you aren’t quite sure what you should do and what you shouldn’t do on moving day. Everyone is different—some of our customers tend to overestimate their responsibilities, actually doing a lot of the work that our moving teams are prepared to do themselves.

This year, our Sumter movers aren’t offering to sift through your financial records and file your taxes for you, but they may have something else to offer you: deductions of your 2015 moving expenses. Here are the first few things you need to know about claiming these expenses on your tax return.

How Lexington, SC Movers Do Office Relocation Right

How Lexington, SC Movers Do Office Relocation Right

lexingtonFor a business relocating to, from, or across Lexington, SC, movers getting equipment and furniture where it needs to go is a stressful concept.

If something goes wrong with the move, the delay could prevent employees from returning to work on time in the new location, leading to all sorts of lost productivity, missed deadlines, and unhappy clients.

Choosing the right Lexington, SC movers to handle your office relocation is key to its success—and its success is not optional! Here are some of the policies and procedures that we follow to give you peace of mind about your move. Read More How Lexington, SC Movers Do Office Relocation Right
