Charlotte, NC, June 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The housing market in Charlotte has rebounded greatly in recent years and has had a direct effect on the moving industry. "Moving companies and real estate are intrinsically connected," notes Todd Koepke, co-owner of T-N-T Moving Systems, "And we have seen a recent increase in our business due to the boom in the real estate market."

According to the Charlotte Business Journal, home sales in Charlotte rose 20.4% in May from a year earlier. Local real estate agents have stated there is a limited housing inventory, but increased demand in the Charlotte area which results in houses selling at a faster rate. Often houses are selling at or above asking price. This growth has increased demand for moving services as well.

T-N-T Moving Systems is a local Charlotte moving company that has been in operation for over twenty years. "We aren't a fly by night company and have survived the ups and downs of the real estate market in Charlotte through our long standing reputation in the community," says Tom Tulowiecki, co-owner.

Once someone has closed on a house, the next step is moving all their belongings to the new home. Koepke recommends getting a couple estimates before booking a moving company. "We offer a free estimate on our website and we also allow our clients to pick and choose their services," says Koepke.

Summer is the busiest time for moving companies- with almost 60% of moves happening in June, July, or August.  Companies like T-N-T Moving Systems are staying busy all year long so planning ahead is essential in order to book a reliable moving company. Many people look for moving companies online, which is a great place to start.

"Look for companies that have a website, physical address, and have been in business for years," says Koepke, "This will help you avoid moving scams." People can also research a moving company on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the North Carolina Utilities Commission websites. Each moving company should be licensed and insured.

"The best way to find a mover is to get a recommendation from friends and family," says Keopke, "Word of mouth is still the best way find a reliable mover."
