Its simple, basically, you just tell them when and where you need a team and they get you assigned to a local company and team to take care of your move. The team meets you at your location to lift, carry, load/unload your stuff for you – you don’t even have to lift a finger to move whenever you hire moving helpers from Moving Help Center.
