What You'll Get
Life is full of moving moments, from the bittersweet ending of Sintered Iron Carnations to Industrial Issue Valedictorian Speech No. 99813671. Add one more moving display to the pile with today's deal. For $35, you get an hour of moving help (a $75 value) from Here to There Movers. Your $35 covers the cost of one hour's work (including travel from point Aaargh to point Zazz), the power of two strapping men, and the space of one cavernous truck. Today's Groupon is valid for travel in Boone, Hancock, Hamilton, Hendricks, Johnson, Morgan, Shelby, Madison, and Marion counties. You can buy up to 10 of today's Groupons to cover your individual moving needs.
During the moving process, Here to There Movers will Tetris your belongings into the truck to ensure each box fits snugly between the sofa and taxidermied squirrel collection, avoiding potential en route shifting and snapped-off tails. Though packing supplies are not included, the able movers will happily use their time to help you pack up, or they'll spend the majority of their time loading your pre-packed items. Once loaded, they'll safely transport your belongings to their destination. To estimate your travel time charge, count the number of counties that you must travel through and add a half hour of time to your tally for each. Skilled in the arts of horological estimation, Here to There recommends that an average one-bedroom apartment takes two hours of work. Therefore, a four-bedroom house, with an additional two hours tacked on for tackling garage and basement storage, takes roughly 10 hours to pack and move. Keep the one-bedroom-equals-two-hours formula in mind when making your own spatiotemporal calculations.
The transport of belongings from one abode to another is one of life's most stressful affairs, even more so than getting locked in a studio apartment with three generations of aging relatives and one enthusiastic time-shares salesman. Let the fully licensed staff of Here to There ease the daunting transition. Since he was 16 years old, company president and CEO Joshua Baxter has been dealing with the logistics of ferrying big, heavy, and expensive items over the River Styx of time and space. His staff members are similarly seasoned veterans of the bookshelf and piano, and treat every belonging as though it were a loaded antique air gun or crystal unicorn collection. Here to There provides a Frequently Asked Questions page and a series of moving tips for the befuddled house-swapper or recreational vagrant.

About Here To There Movers
Joshua Baxter was born to move. As a child he was so entrenched in his family's auction business that when Joshua was 16, his father pulled him aside and told him it was time to take an active role. So, Joshua took his driver's test in the truck the family used to pick up merchandise, and at 19 he bought his own truck, handling the transportation of the often-valuable antiques. That skill and preternatural understanding of merchandise transportation led to the birth of Here To There Movers. Now, Joshua has trucks headquartered in five Midwest cities.
Here To There Movers' technicians know that the transport of belongings from one abode to another is one of life's most stressful affairs, even more than interviewing for a position at the local bomb diffusery. The licensed and insured staff can arrive at a moment's notice, equipped to handle bookshelves, boxes, and pianos. Here To There provides a frequently asked questions page and moving tips for the befuddled house-swapper or recreational vagrant.
