No man is an island. this is the very reason why when moving, you need to get all the help that you can get. Unless you plan to take a few clothes and such in your move, you need extra hands to help you pull, push and carry things that you want to take along with you in your move.
Your friends are the best people to help you in your move. They know you, they know your things and they can help you for free. Paying it forward by helping them in their move surely helps in getting them to help you in yours. Whether they help in packing or on the day of the move, an extra hand of a trusted friend means one less worry for you.
Another way to get help would be to hire a moving company to handle a lot of things in your move. This includes providing you with packing materials, officiating the move and driving the moving truck with your things on it on the new place that you are moving in to.
