Why Should My Moving Company Join the Moving Help Marketplace?

Starting any moving company or business can be difficult. Moving Help makes it easier to achieve your dreams. Moving Help connects customers with labor-only Service Providers. It also doesn’t cost a huge payment or monthly payment to start a moving labor provider business with Moving Help, which are some of the benefits.

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

What Makes the Moving Help Marketplace Different?

U-Haul is a trusted brand in the moving business and Moving Help is powered by U-Haul. 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 on a computer.

You get to decide how much your moving labor business will charge. You can even see what other hourly moving labor charge in your area on our Marketplace.

What Else Do I Need to Succeed?

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’s 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 labor business should create connections with your local moving and storage community as well.

It’s important to understand the expectations for delivering U-Box storage containers, so you can make sure customers stay properly informed when they have any questions.
