Did you know?


Most individuals don’t want to even think about moving but moving is on a lot of people’s mind. One-sixth of American’s relocate every year. Think about that! That’s about 43 million people a year that move. So choosing a professional and trust worthy moving company is a important part of planning your move. Below are some fun facts about moving you might that know! 

  • Job related moves make up about 40 percent of total moves throughout the year. Another 42 percent is due to personal reasons and the last 18 percent is due to military or government relocations. 
  • Around 62 percent of individuals still live in the state which they were born in.
  • Families, a married couple between 25-44 years of age with 1-2 children from the ages of 2-11 years old are the typical moving clients seen
  • The busiest moving season is made up of only  about 4 months, from May to the beginning of September. If you are planning to move during this time frame make sure to schedule your move date ahead of time. This way you get your preferred moving date and time. 

  • A household has a average moving shipment of 6,000 - 7,000 pounds, this is equivalent to  the weight of an elephant! 

  • Most of all moves, two-thirds to be exact, are local. For example most of Hedberg Moving Solutions moves are within the same county.
  • In a lifetime most individuals will move about 12 times. 

Moving is the third most stressful event in life aside from death of a loved one and divorce. A professional moving company can relieve this stress and even save you time/money from renting a truck and moving yourself. As always the key to success when moving is planning, preparation and contacting your moving company early!
