A friend at work told me that this forum was very active so maybe I will find my answer here...

My wife and I are relocating to Florida here shortly. I have just had some surgery on my knee and there is NO way I can load our furniture onto a uhaul. I googled to try and find packers but haven't had any luck. I don't want to use movers because honestly we are downsizing alot of our stuff and only have a couple rooms worth of stuff that we are going to take.

Has anybody any idea of companies like this around here?????????? Any help would be great!

Have you checked on Craig's list? They often have people willing to do loading for xx an hour.

And good luck! Moving is hard work . . .

If you don't feel happy with craigslist, check out the local agencies, loads of people looking for work.

Also saw these mentioned I think it was approx $80 an hour for two people.Moving Labor Services

Here you go:


We found the people we used on this site. We drove the truck, just had guys show up to unpack by the hour. Search by location, it sorts by price, read reviews, etc. I can't remember who we used in particular, but we had good experiences with the crew in both Charlotte and the city we moved from.

It seems somewhat less sketchy than using someone off Craigslist, and the prices are pretty reasonable.

you could try something like

Manpower Inc. – Employment services industry leader offering permanent, temporary, contract recruitment; employee assessment and selection; training; outplacement; outsourcing and consulting services.

Or perhaps, hit up the local home depot and see if some people in the AM are standing out there looking for day labor.

Repeat when you get here.

Good luck.
