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 launched Send me South in 2012 after realizing there was a need for legal services to assist expats looking to relocate to Costa Rica. The idea stemmed from her associate's frustrating experience navigating the country's immigration process, leading them to offer personalized services to guide clients through residency applications. While Send me South is not a profitable enough venture to make a living, its success lies in its commitment to providing top-notch service and a seamless relocation experience for clients from around the world.
