Since the year 2008, employees are being laid off due to the plummet in the economy. Therefore, the government is encouraging the emergence of small business owners in this era. Starting a moving company can be done at a small scale without spending on large commercial trucks and massive warehouses for storage.
A moving company can start with local moves which do not involve too much expenditure.

A small moving company is generally preferred by the locals as the service quality is guaranteed at a much lesser cost.
