Why Should My Moving Company Join the Moving Help Marketplace?

Starting any moving company or business can be difficult, but Moving Help makes it easier to achieve your dreams. Moving Help connects customers with labor-only moving companies. It also doesn’t cost a huge payment or monthly payment to start a moving company with Moving Help. 

If you have a good dependable crew, someone who takes pride in their work, strives for excellent customer service, and getting the job done right, you’ll succeed as a Service Provider on the Moving Help Marketplace

What Makes the Moving Help Marketplace Different?

Moving Help is powered by U-Haul. U-Haul is a trusted brand in the moving business. Since Moving Help is an online marketplace, almost all communication is performed through email. 

When you register your account on, you’ll want to make sure you set up your account on a computer, and not a mobile device or tablet because it’ll be easier to create your account. 

What Else Do I Need to Succeed As a Moving Company?

It’s critical for you to have a working telephone number, so you can contact customers, and customers can contact you with any questions they have about their upcoming move. You also should have a business email and a professional voicemail that states your company name. 

When you join the Moving Help Marketplace, you’ll want to visit your local U-Haul locations. Since you’ll work with these locations, you’ll want to create connections with different people at these U-Haul locations for your moving business. 

Your moving company should create connections with your local moving and storage community as well.
