New Surroundings, New Opportunities

Back in the day, when I was ready for a new start, and didn’t necessarily have the finances. I remember I would ask my friends to help me move, they would load up different things in their cars and would help me. Public service announcement, I don’t like to move since it’s a lot of work  and it makes me all sweaty but I also don’t like to stay in a place I have outgrown. Well, I  guess I can’t have it both ways. So, here starts our journey. So picture it, West Virginia 2020 in the midst of a pandemic….


Well, when things started to progress in my relationship with my now husband; We talked about getting an apartment together. We also knew that the state we lived in wasn’t an option for us anymore. So, here starts our progress. 

  1. Since I already made a big move, my stuff was already downsized. FYI I loaded up my car and moved from Georgia to West Virginia, so yeah I’m no rookie lol
  2. My  husband had to get rid of things(extremely tough)
  3. We had to decide on who was going to move us.(argh!)
  4. We also had to decide on the cost…is an arm and a leg too much?

Horror story 

So, it was finally leading up to moving…I had told my apartment what day I was leaving,my boyfriend did as well.. The utilities were to be cut off on a certain day, the utilities in our new place were cut on and everything was set…or was it? . Something bad happened. The movers we selected had another move prior to us and were going to be late.  The time of our move got later and later. They were over a day late and I still had to drive 4 plus hours to our new state in the dark. We moved from West Virginia to North Carolina, and after moving and then driving…yikes that was exhausting. Also, still having to drive 45 extra minutes to a hotel, that could accommodate my boyfriend who is partially paralyzed. That whole day and night was an adventure. 

Still scared!

They didn’t deliver our furniture until the next day.. Boy oh boy!! So, we finally got moved in and I had a collective sigh of relief. Even though things went okay I sooo  wish that I had gone with a different company, so a friend of mine told me about College Dudes Help U Move. They help with everything, and are located right in Charlotte, NC.  But they also help with just furniture moving, Hot tub movers in Charlotte, NC

It doesn’t necessarily mean a different home. This company truly does it all. I wish I had their help when I moved. So, I know I will be giving them a call when it’s my turn to pack it up again.

I hope that you use them, and even if you need help moving to a new business building, they can also help. I want you to breathe and know that these tips can be a blessing to you. Take one day at a time!

  1. Thanks for the tip. Sounds like a cool company that helps employee college kids that need to make some extra money while in school. A good cause.
