If you need to move, you probably need some help to shift your stuff. A couple of businesses have sprung up that meet your packing and moving needs, the fiscal needs of students with massive loans and the needs of the environment.
College Hunks was originally a Washington DC-based company that offered summer work to students, but it’s grown into a multi-million dollar franchise that caters to residential and commercial clients. What’s more, it recycles more than 60% of the junk it removes and donates to a nonprofit scholarship programme, College Bound.
College Foxes Packing Boxes was launched last year, and they will pack, unpack and organise your home or office (or just your home office). You order by the Fox, or if you are in a rush, you can order Speed Foxes.

With lots of people being laid off, and perhaps finding themselves with a bit of a pay out, it seems franchise businesses like Avon and Kleeneze are experiencing huge numbers of people applying. I wonder if there’s a ‘try-before-you-buy” business series that introduces people to the various types of franchise that might suit their needs an lets people try out a new way of making a living? I guess it might look like a business version of Location, Location, Location?
