It’s easy and free to apply for one of our moving grants. All it takes is a few minutes of your time. We just need some details about you and your move:
And that’s it. After you apply, sit tight and we’ll contact you in a few days.
We’ll reimburse you up to $500 of the cost of your moving services. This reimbursement will come in the form of a one-time payment after you have finished your move.
What’s in it for us?
Throughout the moving process, we’ll learn about your experience in the following ways:
Photos of your move
Correspondence between you and the moving company (emails and forms)
Follow-up phone calls
In the moving surveys and phone interview, we’ll ask you some questions like the ones below:
How much did your move cost?
What was your experience with the company’s customer service?
Did the moving company safely deliver all of your furniture and belongings?
The information you share with us will add to our moving company reviews, which will help our readers know which moving companies they can trust. We’re doing this so we can so we can continue to be one of the most accurate and fair resources in the moving industry.

You can receive your grant either by direct deposit to your bank account or by a check mailed to your new address.
What is the process? How long does it take to pick the grant recipient?
If you’re eligible for a moving grant, we’ll email you within 30 days of your moving date. Then we’ll schedule a phone interview to confirm that you’re a good fit for our grant.
After that, you’ll fill out a pre-move survey, a post-move survey, and send us photos and paperwork from your move. We aim to have the whole process wrapped up within two weeks of your move-in date, and then we send you the grant money.
How would I get notified if I was accepted as a grant recipient?
If we’re considering you for a moving grant, we’ll send you an email (from firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a phone interview and see if you’re a good fit for our moving grant.
Do I have to use a moving company on the list? What if I want to use something else?
To receive a moving grant, you must use one of the moving companies on our list. Someday we’ll add local movers to our moving grant program, but right now we’re focusing on moving companies that are available nationwide.
I’m moving to a city outside the United States. Can I apply?
Yes! We’re interested in international as well as domestic moves.
If I didn’t hear anything, can I apply again?
Yep! We review candidates twice a month and email potential winners within 30 days of their move date. If you haven’t heard from us, it’s probably because your move is more than 30 days away. That said, you can always reapply.
