Asking your friends to help you move: Worth it?

Here’s a scenario you’ve probably experienced once or twice: It’s a week before you’re set to move out of your place. Your things are beginning to get packed up. You’re wondering how you’ve accumulated so much more stuff since you moved in. Nice stuff, like that Panasonic 50-inch Plasma flat screen TV that you spend four or five months saving for. Or the $200 walnut coffee table you special ordered from IKEA.

Let’s face it: you’ve got a lot of stuff. And you’re weighing whether to bite the bullet and hire pros to make sure that stuff makes it to its final destination unscathed, or to take gamble of asking your buddy Jerry (your one friend with the truck) to help you out. It’s a phone call no one likes to make. While it’s nice to have friends that will save you a few bucks on hiring a moving company, there are many cons to consider in such a request.

So, before you make that awkward phone call to Jerry, give your friends at Five Star Moving a call at (702) 936-0152 or visit to see how we can make your move as stress free as possible.
