Here we are in the middle of the warmest month of the year. It’s a hot July. Movers in St Louis are looking for ways to keep cool and calm as they prepare and carry out their St Louis move. We here at McGuire Moving & Storage do not have control of the weather, but we would like to offer a time out from the heat of the day to offer some COOL moving facts with our movers in St Louis.
Fact #1-The moving industry took hold in the 1800s surrounding the expansion of the railroad system. The first specialized horse drawn moving wagons were introduced at the turn of the century.
Fact #2-Hiring a local moving company to handle your move can cost less than renting a truck and moving yourself. At McGuire Moving & Storage, we cover labor, packing, insurance and transportation including gas and tolls. It really adds up when you cover the entire moving process yourself.
Fact #3-According to the US Census Bureau, the average American will move 11.7 times over a life-time. We are proud to report that many of our customers choose us again and again for their moving and storage needs.
Fact #4-43 million Americans move each year. That is the same number of people that enjoyed camping in 2011. That is a lot of movers and campers! Are you camping this summer to stay cool?
Fact #5 According to the Employee Relocation Council, moving is the third most stressful life event following death of a loved one and divorce. At McGuire Moving & Storage, we feel that it doesn’t have to be. We pride ourselves on delivering a stress-free move.
Fact #6-Ok, this one is not a moving fact but we just had to include it! In 1984 President Reagan announced July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day. Movers in St Louis, why not take a cool break from all things moving and enjoy an ice cream?
At McGuire Moving & Storage we are dedicated to providing all the support and resources our movers in St Louis need to ensure you keep your cool during your move. Enjoy that ice cream!
