I've used this company multiple times for short and long distance moves. I have had no issues whatsoever. They were on time and courteous. No damage. They were especially cautious with my antique furniture and art collection. I would highly recommend using them!

EZZ Moving & Storage Inc
DO NOT USE EZ MOVING AND STORAGE INC. There is no reasonable option that you could possibly be considering that would not be better than using this company. Their name is the biggest misnomer of any company I have ever done any type of business with. The only people they make anything easy for is themselves. We hired EZ Moving and Storage Inc. to move our belongings to a new state and to store it for about a month. They underestimated our costs in their estimate by approximately $1000, despite us calling them back and telling them that they were underestimating the volume of our belonging and emphasizing that we had a 2800 square foot house. When we argued about the increase in price when it showed that we were right, they at first tried to say a contractor had given us the quote and they couldn’t be responsible for the quote. However, we told them that we had contacted their company directly and they had been the ones who had given us the quote. They then said that we should have gotten a walk through estimate and we told them we were never told that was an option despite us telling them that they were underestimating the volume of our belongings. Unfortunately the problems didn’t stop there. Our contract stated that they had 7-14 days from the moving date to deliver our belongings, which we notified EZ Movers was July 2. It took multiple phone calls and reminding them that July 16 would be 14 days but they did come to our new house on July 15, which was within 13 days of the move in date. However, things went downhill from there. The truck was an 18 wheeler with our stuff in the back portion of the trailer and another family's belongings in front that they were to deliver to a different state. They collected the remainder of the $3641 cost before they started unloading the truck. However, as they were removing the final items of ours from the truck my wife noticed that a large number of our belongings were not on the truck. When she questioned the movers they had no idea where the rest of our belongings were. She had to make multiple phone calls to their headquarters, as they did not return her calls, before she was able to reach someone. They told her that they still had the rest of our belongings but could not fit them all on the truck with the other family's belongings. It was clearly evident that they were perfectly aware that they were not sending us all of our property but they didn't even have the common decency to tell us because they wanted to be sure to collect the money first and just let us figure it out for ourselves. My wife was obviously unhappy but was relieved when she was promised that the rest of our belongings would be delivered 4 days later on Tuesday July 19. Tuesday came and nobody showed up, nor did they call, nor did they return our phone calls. When she was finally able to reach someone days later, the lady said she had just returned from vacation and didn't know anything about it.

Moving to South Carolina?


As you pass into the state of South Carolina on Interstate 95, you aren’t likely to miss the huge rest stop, gift shop, hotel and novelty Mecca located on the side of the highway with the giant sign signaling that you have now moved “South of the Border.” Although you’re still in America, one thing that is true about South Carolina is that you are definitely in the south.

From the state’s beautiful beaches and the bright neon lights and vibrant nightlife of Myrtle Beach’s world famous strip, to the thousands of perfectly manicured golf courses and sprawling acres of palmetto trees, South Carolina is a unique state that manages to be everything all at once.

If you’re moving to South Carolina, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Things to Know When Moving to South Carolina

South Carolina Climate

  • The subtropical climate of South Carolina often vastly differs from the coastal regions to the inland portions of the state. For example, summer temperatures on the coast tend to be high, with averages lingering between 85 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. However, what sets apart the coast from the inland regions is the high humidity that is often present during the summer months near the coast. Humidity can often reach 80 percent or higher making the temperature feel like it is in the triple digits. During the winter, temperatures along the coast tend to be much milder, while the inland areas experience more winter weather in regards to snowfall and lower temperatures. (Helpful Link: South Carolina Weather)

Moving Specifics

  • Registering your Car: Upon your arrival in South Carolina after moving to the state permanently, you have a total of 45 days to update your registration and have your vehicle registered in the state before you may be required to pay a penalty. To buy some more time for yourself, you may purchase a 45-day temporary registration tag upon moving to the state. (Helpful Link: South Carolina DMV)

  • Obtaining a South Carolina Driver’s License: A South Carolina Driver’s License can be obtained at any South Carolina DMV location. The state requires new South Carolina residents to update their license from their previous state to a South Carolina driver’s license within 90 days of moving. If you hold a license from another state, you do not have to retake a driving test, provided your license has not expired.

  • Real Estate: The average listing price for homes in South Carolina is $291,199, while the median sales price is just over $129,900. The South Carolina Association of Realtors is the official real estate resource for the state of South Carolina.

  • Moving and Storage: If you are looking for a moving company or storage facility to help you with anything, you should check to make sure the company is registered with the United States Department of Transportation or with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. (Helpful Link: South Carolina State Moving Resource Page)

Schools

  • Only one of the three states in the country that have not agreed to using competitive international math and language arts standards in their educational system, South Carolina has its own proprietary system for educational standards that it currently uses. Along with a vast network of public school systems including elementary, middle, junior high and high schools, South Carolina also has a number of prestigious institutes of higher learning located within the state such as Clemson University, the University of South Carolina, Furman University, Wofford College, Winthrop University, Coastal Carolina University, Charleston Southern University, South Carolina State University and The Citadel. (Helpful Link: South Carolina Schools)
