Not sure which forum this belongs in, so if the mods think there is a better forum, they should move this. I am so glad that a company like this exists.

Moving Company Helps People Escape Abusive Relationships, Free Of Charge: LAist

Quote:
A moving company will help you move out of your place for free if you are leaving an abusive partner.

Leaving an abusive relationship is hard, for numerous reasons. Studies show that victims are often groomed for abuse and that their abusers—through techniques like gaslighting (making the abused party feel like they're 'crazy' or can't trust their own memories) and isolating them from friends and family—are often able to trap them in miserable relationships. All of these psychological factors are hard enough on their own, not to mention actually packing up your belongings and moving them.

So, to help with that part of an already difficult situation, Meathead Movers—a company with branches throughout Southern and Central California—will move people who are trying to flee abusive relationships for free, LA Weekly reports.
