My wife Barbara and I moved to Harrisburg from San Antonio during the winter of 2010. It was at this time that we encountered many of the obstacles that families and businesses encounter when they move. We had to move our entire house hold, including us, our belongings, our cars, and our pets more than 1,700 miles during the winter. It was raining from San Antonio all the way to Little Rock, where the rain turned to snow and ice for the remainder of the trip. We had no idea what amount of planning, organizing, shopping, and just flat out work was involved in our move.

After we started to look into everything, we also discovered how expensive it was to move. Even local moves, moving from one home into another in the same area, are very costly and the amount of work involved is huge, especially if you are not used to doing it. Packing everything so that nothing breaks, loading a truck so that nothing shifts during the ride and so that everything arrives safely. Unloading in such a way as to not have to keep moving things around the house as you bring everything in, and even driving a huge truck with a trailer on the back of it just adds up to stress, stress and more stress.

After this move we started thinking about how many people go through this every single day. Some are moving because they are buying a new home, which should be a joyful and stress free process. Then you have to close on the house you are selling, then close on the house you are buying, sometimes all on the same day that you are moving. By the time you get everything done you need to lay down and recuperate because of all the stress involved with this moving experience. This is the reason that we decided to start Move It For You LLC.

I learned how to load large amounts of furniture and boxes into small spaces when I was a young boy from my grandfather. I also learned how to pack up belongings safely at an early age because of the number of times  I have moved in my lifetime. Believe me, I broke many things by doing it the wrong way and learned through repetition the best way to pack anything so that it will be protected and arrive safely.
