Why Become Moving Helper

When it comes time to move, many people opt to hire moving helpers instead of loading up their rental truck on their own. This service isn’t free, of course, and is an excellent opportunity for young entrepreneurs to start their first business. However, there can sometimes be challenges, such as how to spread the word about your new company when advertising costs can be quite expensive. Moving Help Marketplace, powered by U-Haul, aims to make the process as easy as possible for anyone who signs up to be listed on their site. Here are some of the top reasons you should become a Moving Helper.

Be Your Own Boss

One of the top reasons for becoming a Moving Help Provider is the fact that you are your own boss. You are in complete control of whether you take a job or not, how much you want to charge for your services, and you can dedicate as much of your time to your business as you choose. If you want to focus on hiring more people and expanding your area of operations, you can certainly do so. If you just want to grab a friend and do a couple jobs on the weekend, you can do that too. The flexibility that comes with being a Moving Help Provider can’t be beat.

Free Advertisement

U-Haul trucks are seen by hundreds of thousands of people on a daily basis, and many of these trucks have advertisements for movinghelp.com displayed on them. Beyond that, Moving Help Providers are suggested to customers as they book a rental on uhaul.com. By listing your company on the website, you are instantly tapping into this huge network of advertisement. This amount of publicity would normally be impossible for a small start-up, but by signing up to become a Moving Help Provider you instantly get all the benefits with none of the cost.

Quick Payment

Similar sites may take weeks to pay you for a job, but Moving Help Marketplace makes sure you get your payment as soon as possible once the payment code is received. Also, payment can be complicated with other companies. Moving Help Marketplace makes it simple, a small percentage is kept for providing their service and the rest goes directly to you. Easy as can be.

Great Resume Builder

Nothing looks better on a resume than building your own business from the ground up. Whether you choose to make your moving company a priority or just a side job, the fact that you built something from nothing shows potential employers that you have determination and initiative.

Low Overhead Costs

Unlike with many other businesses, there is very little overhead involved with being a Moving Help Provider. For the most part, your customers will have already rented their moving truck, you just need to show up and load it for them.

Work With Friends and Family

One of the advantages of having control over your business is choosing who you work with. If you know friends or family members who need a job you can easily bring them on as a team member without having to go through an interview process. You’re the boss, so you make the call.

Stay in Shape

Who needs a gym membership when lifting is built into your everyday job? Not everyone can say they get paid to get fit!
