The problem is regular movers don't want to be bothered with one item. I also don't want just anyone in my home.

Does anyone know of someone who doesn't mind small jobs?

I know...but that gets into the whole inviting just anyone into my home.

I used to love Craigslist but I just don't trust it lately.

If you don't trust a freelancer on craigslist, try a local moving business that's available on an hourly rate:You can also just call up a university near you and ask for the internship/career service/job placement office to see if you can place an ad for the job.

Alas, my favorite (cuz they're just so fun to watch) is not available in San Antonio Two Marines and a Truck - Washington, DC

I agree, I feel the same way. The last time I needed extra help, I asked at Home Depot and they gave me a local handyman and it worked out fine. Just a thought

i wouldn't advertise that on craigslist either. Call the moving companies and ask if any employees want to make some extra money off-hours. Make sure they have background checks.

We ask our neighbors when we need an extra hand. The teenage boys on our street also helped my husband move some stuff when I was too pregnant to lift anything.

Here's a weird idea, how 'bout calling the local high school and asking if there's a couple of ROTC members or ball players or whatever who might want to earn some cash?

Just a thought.
