I contend that the ruling on couch surfing having a sort of life stage expiration date applies also to having friends help you move.
Having friends help you move is a pretty great bonding experience, though. That being said, having professionals move you is pretty amazing.
That is true! It was ESPECIALLY true when said friends drove three hours from Atlanta to Asheville and then back to do it!
But now I'm 36 and have more financial means than I did then and so: PROFESSIONALS.
