If you need to clarify something with the client, do it before you start. This job is trust-based if you will be working in someone’s home. And when you do good work, the referrals and affiliates will come. Speaking of salary, you can make $20-40 an hour! But it depends on your location and client.

You can check AppStore or Google Play to find out even more interesting applications for your job. Once you take a look into the interesting offers and requirements for each site, you will be able to choose. All of them are different and you need to be attention when choosing some task. E.g., Handy Pro website requires a year of paid experience in the services you’re marketing. That is the reason you need to look and read each website Terms or Service.

It’s physically hard work that involves lifting heavy materials, so you need to be in shape. But, it’s a flexible job, and the pay is good, so you can be a part of some movie business or to start your own. The latter requires investments, word-of-mouth, using different social media, flyers and a website. If you think you can handle it; do it.
There a few ways to start marking with your moving business. We can mention, you can create a profile on Taskrabbit or use some application to advertise your services. You can join a student moving service, like Bellhops (jobs pay between $75-$100 per job, as for Alex Elsea, head of growth at Bellhops) and Dolly.
Both companies provide a lot of autonomy over your schedule and start at $15 an hour for moving. If you own a van or truck, that rate can raise up to $30 an hour, as for Dolly.
