The best part? As local, trusted movers in West Ashley, you won’t have to take a loan out from the bank to pay for our moving services. We believe in hard work, friendly attitudes, efficiency, and fair pricing.

Labor-Only Moving

Labor-Only Moving

Do you already have reliable transportation but still need a team of professional movers to handle your heavy lifting? Strong Men Moving now offers labor-only moving services in West Ashley for both residential and commercial moving projects.

A few benefits of labor-only moving include:

  • Reduce damage – our professional movers in West Ashley will make sure your belongings are properly loaded into your truck, reducing the probability of damaged or broken items.
  • Maximize Space – With years of experience in the moving industry, we have a sixth sense for space-efficient packing and loading. Our strong men will make the most out of your truck’s usable space, which can help reduce trip time and save money on gas.
  • Quicker Moves – A team of Strong Men Moving will almost always be able to load and unload your belongings faster than a group of your friends. It’s nothing personal! With our team of professionals, you can spend less time filling up your truck and more time on getting to your new home or office.
  • Save Money – Using your friends to help you move almost certainly means you will have to compensate them one way or another. Why spend your money on cases of beer and pizza when you can use it for a safer, quicker move?

With our labor-only services, customers can rent their own truck for transportation while our expert movers load and unload heavy, delicate, or fragile items. Labor-only moving saves you time, helps prevent unnecessary injuries, and gives you the freedom to make your own travel arrangements.

Investors plan film production facility in West Ashley

South Carolina has award-winning hotels and airports that appeal to production companies, but the state lacks the studio space to knock its attraction out of the park, S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Director Duane Parrish said.

But that might change very soon.

One private business is going off script and not waiting for the government to make the first move. Executives have already designed plans for a production facility that could be just years away.

Ginger Davis, director of leasing at Trademark Properties in Charleston, said she and Founder and CEO Richard C. Davis put together an investment group in 2017 and acquired 4.5 million square feet of property at West Ashley’s Citadel Mall to reuse and redevelop into a multiuse development that includes a production facility.

“We want to create an environment where people work here and live here all the time. We want the constant impact of the industry. Not just the one-off projects,” she said.

The facility is planned to be a one-stop shop for production companies with sound stages, editing offices and more, in addition to a medical facility, hotels, office space, dining and retail.

HBO’s success in the space so far is evidence the plans could work.

In January 2019, the premium channel signed a multiyear lease on the empty Sears department store and transformed it into a sound stage for its comedic series, The Righteous Gemstones.

“We really used the project with Sears as a proof of concept,” Davis said. “We had a department store that was in a redevelopment project. There’s a ton of space. It was going to be either tear it down or find a new use.”

TMP plans to build up the property around the studio to welcome more HBO shows, Netflix and any other streaming networks or studios that want to film in South Carolina.

Without the guarantee of more business given the state’s small incentives budget, Parrish worries there isn’t enough business to sustain the infrastructure and suggests that’s why other proposals haven’t panned out so far.

“We really have not been large enough to support what I would consider a full-size studio on an ongoing basis,” he said.

The argument could be made that more incentive money could bring in more production, Parrish said, but it would be a financial risk to build before the government buys in.

Davis believes the solution is to make the property multifunctional so it attracts foot traffic and isn’t solely dependent on ongoing production to stay solvent.

“People will shop at our Target, at our stores, and it activates our property,” she said. “They have tons of parking, they’ll eat at our food court. The goal is for the economic impact to trickle all the way down to a lot of ancillary businesses.”

The entire package, including Medical University of South Carolina’s facility which opened in 2019, is intended to draw in industry business and be a place where a studio may have one show already filming and then it brings several more.

Davis believes adding a meaningful creative facility has the potential to diversify South Carolina’s economy even further beyond manufacturing, biotech and tourism.

Renting is easy. Moving in went smooth. Shawn even gave us paper towels to wipe off our belongings after they got wet in the rain. That's class.

Horrible experience. We dropped our trailer off one day EARLY on 4/2/21 and yet this location charged us for late drop off! No one was there when we dropped off at 11:30 on a Friday. My husband followed instructions to drop off with no one there. Received a bill for $91.56 for a late drop off...really? Still trying to fight this. Calling UHaul customer service yet again because the area manager who was meant to call me never did. I've been on hold for 45 mins so far. I don't understand why customer service could not help me with this in the first place. So frustrating when you do the right thing and then get charged for doing the wrong thing! Very unlikely I will use UHaul again.

Easy process to drop the truck off, however there was only one place to enter and exit and a truck was blocking it when we arrived. Because of that, we had to wait in a nearby parking lot for a while until it left to enter the lot.

Rushed me through and didn't print a receipt. Partially not their fault as U-Haul sent me 2 different locations for pickup, one on email and a different one on text. Average for the balance of quickly being able to get me a truck but also rushing me and not sending any email or receipt at all.

No help and also no room to load my car into dollly. Awful service. Been twice and it is always some lazy lady that only wants to do the bare minimum.. no place to park sooo many problems. The johns island uhaul is the best I've seen in the Charleston area.

A cleaned and sanitized truck due to Covid 19. There was a cup and bottle of liquid in the truck. A Large piece of Plastic in the cargo. No hand truck with my truck. I had to go to another location and pay AGAIN for a hand truck. The location was way out of my area. I called customer service to be refunded and was given a hard time. Was also informed that there would be no compensation for my inconvenience, time and gas. Moving is already hectic and this was the icing on the cake!

Location is a small car lot. Driveway is full of water filled potholes. There is no marked parking. I asked a man who was working in the lot if I could leave my car in a spot for 2 hours while I used the truck. He says “yes†and then 25 minutes later they call me telling me they're going to tow my car. Worst U-Haul ever.

They said that the lights were not working on the trailer because something was wrong with my connection not the trailers. So I went to Walmart and bought some stick on lights with to stick them on turns out the last person who rented this had done the same thing so they rented me a trailer with no lights complete stressful situation on an already stressful situation. Not cool not happy.

I reserved a dolly with my truck reservation. When i arrived, I was told that my dolly had been rented out. As a result, i had to stop and buy a dolly. This was an inconvenience, as I'd hoped to go straight from the UHaul dealer to my home.

I asked for a hand truck, no one told me they didn't have one. I had to drive to another haul to get one. Which made my miles go up and cost me more money

After 1 year and 1 month, West Ashley specimen collection site closes

After serving as many as 1,000 people per day, MUSC Health’s West Ashley drive-through COVID specimen collection site is closed for business. It’s a sign of how the pandemic has evolved. When the site opened in March 2020, Ambulatory environmental health and safety and emergency manager Erik Modrzynski said, they didn’t know how long it would be needed, how many patients it would serve or even what the hours should be to meet demand. MUSC Health was the first in the nation to combine a virtual screening appoin...

After serving as many as 1,000 people per day, MUSC Health’s West Ashley drive-through COVID specimen collection site is closed for business.

It’s a sign of how the pandemic has evolved. When the site opened in March 2020, Ambulatory environmental health and safety and emergency manager Erik Modrzynski said, they didn’t know how long it would be needed, how many patients it would serve or even what the hours should be to meet demand.

MUSC Health was the first in the nation to combine a virtual screening appointment with a drive-through testing site. Keeping potential COVID patients outside of hospital and clinic buildings, where they could potentially infect staff members and other patients, was a priority.

Just a few months before, MUSC Health had opened the West Ashley Medical Pavilion within Citadel Mall. In March 2020, with the health system in need of a large outdoor site easily accessible from the interstate and major roads, mall owners Richard and Ginger Davis graciously agreed to allow MUSC Health to set up the drive-through testing site in the mall parking lot for an indefinite period.

For the next year, nurses and techs worked, swathed in personal protective equipment, in the sweltering Charleston summer, with the blacktop radiating heat back up at them; in the rain, unless there was lightning, in which case they hurriedly packed up; and in the cold.

MUSC Health leaders also realized that setting up a single testing site wasn’t enough to serve the community. In April 2020, they opened a pop-up testing site in Columbia, offering both walk-up and drive-through services, followed by one in Sumter during the first week of May 2020.

Soon MUSC Health was offering pop-up testing across the state. As of April 12, 2021, MUSC Health had performed more than 390,000 tests statewide.

Even as that testing was expanding, Modrzynski was working behind the scenes, along with collaborators from Clemson University, to develop portable testing pods that could be placed in smaller locations and would keep team members shielded from the virus as well as the worst of the weather.

Those pods are now in use at a vaccination and testing site in North Charleston, at 2401 Mall Drive.

The Mall Drive site is better suited to current demand. With testing down to a couple of hundred people per day, it didn’t make sense to maintain the expensive West Ashley site.

On April 13, crews were dismantling the site, reclaiming their tents and trailers to be rented out to the next customer. Belfor project manager Donald Ivy said the various companies involved had two weeks to finish, but he expected cleanup to move much quicker. After that, the blacktop will be repaired and the parking lines repainted, he said.

For Modrzynski, the testing site is a point of pride: Physical proof that no matter what, the people at MUSC Health are committed to working to get the job done for patients.
