This works better when you are the actual person who does the moving. In the eight moves of my Navy career (in ten years) I actually had to handle heavy stuff once (and I was an ensign, so I had a bed, a dresser, a desk, and bookshleves made from boards and cinderblocks). Two moves as a civilian, I handled nothing (and the company that hired me paid for one of those). I have stickers on boxes in the basement (some of which got waterlogged in a basement disaster) that still had stickers from my 1990 move. I am a Bad Stuff Thrower-Outer Person. 😫
