Moving: An American Adventure
“Home is where the heart is.”
“Bloom where you are planted.”
At T-N-T Moving Systems, we know that these sayings can reassure those of us that are moving. They identify that no matter where you may be physically, comfort and growth can be found anywhere. The people and things you care about or care for are what make a house a home. And wherever you are planted or replanted, you can flourish. The American spirit for adventure and exploration continues today.
Many Americans move every year. According the Census Bureau, about 11.7% of Americans move each year. That’s about 36 million people! Although most of us stay within the same county or state, over 5 million of us move to a different state or country. As Americans, we are free to explore and find our own way.
Why We Move?
Job-related moves are the number one cause for relocating. This is especially true for Military families. Many people are willing to move to a new city, state, or country if the job is right. But it is also true for people just wanting a shorter commute to work.
House is too small. When families grow, often there is a need for a bigger house and more space. The addition of children or older parents can cause Americans to move.
House is too big. Downsizing to a smaller home is often a good option when the children have moved out of the family home. A smaller house is easier to maintain and often less expensive.
The Grass is always greener. As time passes, and incomes grow, people often want to upgrade to larger or more luxurious homes. Or move to a new area that has better climate or amenities.
Marital Status. When couples move in together or get married, it is natural to want to find a new place together. This can help alleviate feelings of “yours” and “mine”, and help create a feeling of “ours.” Of course, if the couple breaks up another reason to move is created.
Pursuing A Dream. Sometimes people just get an itch to go after something they’ve always wanted. As Americans, pursuing a dream seems to be in our DNA. Even without the safety net of a new job, we will often make a drastic change in order to realize a life-long goal.
There are many reasons to move to a new home, city, state or country. The United States of America was founded by people looking to better their lives and find opportunity. In fact, statistical data from the Census Bureau shows that we move once every five years. If you need a reliable mover to help you, consider T-N-T Moving Systems.
