Hire Someone to Pick Up and Deliver Furniture

Do you need to hire someone to pick up and deliver furniture? In the past, when a retail store didn’t offer delivery services, it could be a major inconvenience. 

You would have a few options. The first would be to call a friend with a truck and offer them gas money, and perhaps pizza, to help you out. 

If this didn’t work, you hire someone off Craigslist or Yelp. This route is risky. If the item is damaged, these online contractors are known to disappear without a trace. You are left holding the bill. 

Or, if you felt up to doing the heavy lifting, you could rent a truck. This generally meant leaving the store where you were purchasing your items, filling out a stack of paperwork, driving back, doing all the heavy labor yourself, and then returning the vehicle (don’t forget to refill the tank!).
