Moving franchises help individuals and companies move large and specialized items from one place to another. Moving franchisees purchase moving trucks and hire movers, and then market their business to local residents and arrange the moves. Moving can be seasonal, with more moves generally happening during the summer. Some moving companies gear their services towards specific demographics, and some provide additional services, including storage. As the housing market improves and people start buying and moving again, the moving industry should pick up, meaning that 2014 is a fantastic time to look into buying a moving franchise.
