6 Moving Service Business Success Stories [2023]

6 Moving Service Business Success Stories [2023]
Start A Moving Service Business

Moving service businesses pack, load, transport, unpack, clean, and carefully arrange items at the new location.

The demand for moving services is high among businesses, office owners, and residential customers.

As the owner of a moving truck business, your responsibility is to find potential customers (people who are moving home or office), hire a number of packers depending on the scope of work, and transport the items safely to the new location.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a moving service business:

1. Send me South ($18K/year)

Marcia Solis (from Dulce Nombre de Jesús, San José Province, Vásquez de Coronado, Costa Rica) started Send me South over 11 years ago.

$1.5K / month
1 founders / 0 employees

Case Study

Hello! My name is Marcia Solis and I run Send me South, a company that helps people relocate to Costa Rica, Central America, since 2012.

Since this is a business that is mostly referred to by word of mouth, clients do not show every month. However, there is always a family coming to stay, wanting to give their children the Latin experience of learning Spanish directly in our schools, or retired people looking for the tropics to spend their golden years in our beaches and mountains.

2. U-Haul International

Looking for trucks, trailers, storage, U-Box® containers or moving supplies? With over 20,000 locations, U-Haul is your one-stop shop for your DIY needs.
