These are the two best places to find local moving jobs:


GoShare works with big box retailers, such as Costco, to provide delivery services. So, the site gets plenty of work to shell out.

Citizen Shipper plays matchmaker between people who need help moving pets or possessions long distances, with the drivers willing and able to do it. Customers say what they need to ship, where, when, and, sometimes, how much they’re willing to pay. Drivers get notified about new jobs in their area and decide whether to bid or accept a proposed job. The site doesn’t take a commission on your earnings, but charges a small monthly membership fee. The site is particularly attractive for long-haul movers, who want to find additional on-the-way deliveries. Learn more about Citizen Shipper here.
