- $40 for two Bellhops for first hour ($80 value)
Students from local colleges, a.k.a. Bellhops, help you move into your new residence. The service is ideal for small-scale moving, such as apartments, condos, and 2-3 bedroom houses. The students are all recruited from reputable student organizations, such as ROTC, and they all undergo a pre-screening process. Before your move, Bellhops sends you an email with your two movers’ pictures and profiles so you know who they are when they arrive.
Usually, when you hire a moving company, the best luxuries you can hope for are a big enough truck and protective furniture wrapping. Bellhops has expanded the list of perks considerably. Its movers—more than 8,000 pre-screened college students in more than 130 cities—work by the client's schedule instead of pigeonholing small-scale moves into appointment slots.
The student movers, who come from such reputable student organizations as ROTC and sports teams, sign up for their own jobs, too, so they're eager to help once they're onsite. They even send out profiles before moving day, introducing themselves to the client with pictures and information about their college studies and the maximum number of mini fridges they can bench-press.
The founders of Bellhops started this business after reflecting on how many times they helped friends and their parents move heavy things in college, and the neighborly spirit of that arrangement still powers the student-driven organization.

“They are very friendly and willing to work with you. If you have items that can be damaged in transit, recommend that you supervise how a truck or pod is loaded, so that wood furniture is not touching other wood furniture. They were very helpful especially in moving the big pieces of furniture.”
