If my business has no employees, what’s the best way to transport items besides my personal car? I can rent a truck but it seems people think I should not be driving it. I’m still small and not ready to hire someone.

When you are a one-man show it is really hard, because you have to wear every hat. This is one you can take off though, and you really should. You open yourself up to a lot more liability when you drive a rented truck yourself. Let’s say you end up on a job until midnight, which means that you are also doing the moving alone, that means you will be driving the truck back in the dark. Its not safe.We were killing ourselves doing that at first. Then we finally realized that we could hire 2 guys with their own truck for about the same as what it costs to rent the truck ourselves. They do the back-breaking work and take on that risk, instead of us. Find some movers that you trust and who are careful with your things and with people’s homes. Using the same team all of the time will also save time and headaches. They will get to know your system, how you want things wrapped, how you like things placed, and where you want things put away. It’s a way to build your ‘team’ without actually hiring.
