Labor Only moving vs Full Service

Let’s start this blog off today by highlighting what a Labor only move is. Labor only is usually where you would provide the Moving Vehicle! This is typically from Uhaul, Penske, or Budget. We as the Labor only moving company would then Load & Unload your moving truck for you. Note that this does mean you will be responsible for driving it. Overall this usually saves most customers planning to move anywhere from 20%-50% depending on the size and complexity of your move.
