Moving Tips and Services to Memphis – The Roots of Rock ‘n’ Roll

With over 655,000 residents, Memphis is the largest city in Tennessee, which means there are plenty of activities to do. Sightseeing, museums, and history are just a few of the many luxuries that will be at your fingertips. It is widely known as the home state of the King of Rock 'n' Roll – Mr. Elvis Presley. Elvis’s home, Graceland, and Memphis’s famous landmark, Beale Street, are some of the most iconic attractions in America. 

Five major freight railroads, two Interstate highways, and the second busiest cargo airport in the world intersect Memphis. This makes for easy travel to and from the city. Take advantage of these accessibilities to see the attractions, and you might just find yourself staying for good.

Tips for becoming a Memphian

Since Memphis is at the heart of transportation, it is no wonder we have roughly 30 truck rental locations in the city to help you move. Here are some tips to starting your Rock ‘n’ Roll journey.

  • Know the Roads – If you are moving to the downtown area, be sure to check out the roads beforehand, as most of them are one-way. Although this can be confusing as first, residents are known for their Southern hospitality and can be very helpful with navigation.
  • When to Move – There are a few months of the year that are ideal for moving to Memphis. The summers can be hot and humid and the winters frigid. However, April and May maintain ideal weather and great festivities. These months are perfect for making your move!
  • Working in Memphis – Unemployment rates in Memphis are slightly higher than average, so it would be best to find a job before you make the move. If you are interested in working in the shipping or manufacturing industries, this is the perfect place to be, due to its location.
  • Cost of Living – The cost of living in Memphis is significantly lower than the national average. Housing is by far the most affordable aspect, followed by utilities, groceries, healthcare, and transportation. Moving can be expensive, but Memphis can help cut some of the costs in the long run.
