The Trusted Name in Moving Help Referrals

Experienced

While you might be tempted to gather some friends and hire a moving truck on your own, it’s worth remembering that house movers do this for a living. Moving people’s houses seven days a week provides them with a wealth of experience that can’t be learned overnight. A furniture mover booked through the Handy platform will know everything from the best way to pack delicate items to how to pack the moving van. Handy has been connecting customers with professional moving services for years and has helped thousands of people move successfully, safely, and without stress.

Skilled and Capable

Too many people learn too late that there's much more to moving than merely packing and unpacking boxes. For house movers on the Handy platform, relocation services are second nature, and they've developed the skills to make it seem effortless. Book professional furniture movers through the Handy platform, and they'll take care of all the work for you, including lifting bulky items and negotiating those awkward corners and angles that you might not be able to yourself. 

Reliable

There's nothing worse than standing out on the front doorstep, waiting for moving help to turn up that no-shows on you. On your moving day, time is of the essence and every minute counts. Book your professional movers through Handy and your packers and movers will turn up on time and ready to get the job done. Handy will work hard to ensure that you connect with the right professional movers who will arrive right when you need them to.

Flexible

The beauty of using Handy to book your moving help is that you can make your booking whenever you need it. Movers are available from 7 AM to 11 PM, and you can request multiple movers if you think you’ll need them. Handy has a friendly customer service team operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at your beck and call if you need them. Whether you need professional movers first thing in the morning or in a few weeks' time, use the Handy platform to set up your booking today.

The Best Moving Help Referral Agency

Stop Worrying and Hand Your Pro the Packing Tape 

Moving to a new house is up there as one of the most stressful experiences in anyone's life. Add children to the equation, and it can become even more traumatic. Trying to pack when it's time to make breakfast or finding broken picture frames or mirrors in your boxes the next day can be unbearable. Book professional packers and movers through Handy and you can use your time to take care of the important things in life. Handy can even connect you with local movers who will do all the unpacking for you, leaving you free to enjoy your new home.

Where Are You Headed?

It doesn’t matter whether your downsizing, upsizing, or even relocating offices. The relocation service professionals on the Handy platform have seen virtually every kind of move there is. Using their seasoned skills and expert eyes, they’ll know the best way to help make your move seamless and smooth. It doesn’t matter how many stairs are involved or how temperamental the elevator is, they’ve got the strength and skill to get your possessions from A to B, without any problems in between. 

Dealing with the Unexpected

Not even professional house movers can guarantee that the weather will be on your side or that the traffic will want to cooperate. However, you’ll be connected with local movers who’ll be able to identify and deal with any problems that arise along the way. From working in the rain and finding somewhere to park the moving truck to dealing with a last-minute piece of furniture, they’ll ensure that no detail is left overlooked.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I book movers through Handy to help me move to a different city?

No, unfortunately we only offer local moves within reasonable city limits at this time.  If you're unsure if the distance your move qualifies, please ask your pro.

Is a moving van or moving truck included?

No, if you will require a moving van or moving truck for your move, you will need to provide it yourself.

When should I expect my professional to get in touch with me?

After your booking is confirmed, Handy will send you confirmation emails and messages about your booking and professional. You can contact your professional at any time with questions or concerns you might have.

Philip S.

The two professionals that shkwed up of the 3 that were booked were great. They were pleasant and hardworking. We got a 3hr job done in 2

Nathan I.

Alex was awesome. The second person never showed up, so Alex did more than his far share of work. He was a work horse and great to have.

Sally W.

Amazing!!! He is quick, efficient, has an amazing attitude and I couldn't have asked for better! So helpful and even stayed extra when things took longer than expected.

Tara T.

Edwin was the perfect professional to help me move. He was friendly and strong and worked well with the other handy hire even though they had just met. He even stated past the scheduled time (my fault! i didnt book them long enough) to make sure everything I needed was done. He moved all furniture and knew how to put things back together. I would highly recommend him and def use him again!
