Have a Hassle-Free Local Move with Boyd

February, 2019

It can be easy to fall victim to the ‘do-it-yourself’ local move. After all, you can rent a truck, find some moving boxes, bribe a few good friends with pizza and beer, and you’re good to go! Right? But the fun wears off quickly.

  • There’s never enough of the right boxes.
  • You have to drive across town in rush hour to get the rental truck.
  • You ordered the wrong sized truck.
  • The rental truck you thought you reserved is not the one they have left on their lot.
  • You need to rent dollies, moving blankets and other moving supplies.
  • A friend bails on you before it all begins.
  • Something comes up with another friend midway through the moving day and they have to leave too.
  • Door frames get dinged and furniture gets scratched.
  • You under-estimate the amount of help you need, or the amount of time it takes to complete your move.
  • You get into an argument with your friends.


Sound somewhat familiar? What you thought would take a single trip in ‘a few hours’ actually involves three or four trips across town over the course of the entire day. Hours later, it’s dark outside, everyone is sore, tired and very cranky and you have no idea what happened to the box of linens or where the cat food ended up.
