    I would try your local CAB as they will have some info on this.

    Call the council. Ours have a handyman service who will come and help. They can also put you in touch with charities local to you which may also offer help.

    Hire a man and van is the simple option.
    As to financial help then no help from what I can gather as I asked and was told yes no problem, if I had just come out of prison.

    Well thanks for all the info a man and van is going to be £200+ of which i have not got!! and i do believe its going to take 2 men as getting wardrobes down the stairs is a bit difficult with one set of hands.

    So i will ring my local counci offices and see if they can put me in the right direction and il ring C.A.B thanks guys

    CAB know of lots of local charities that might help, also they may be able to tell you if you are eligible for a grant.
    As Paul says the Council is another good idea. Mine run a scheme for helping tenants in certain areas of housing needs.
    Good luck

    Did you have any luck with the CAB and finding a charity that could help you?

    Hi Sambo
    Do you receive Income Support? I f so you may be able to get a grant towards moving costs or a budgeting loan.

    Some neighbourhood charity volunteers might be able to lend a helping hand. CAB is also a good place to seek help from and perhaps you could get a few neighbours to help move the stuff into the van? Then upon reaching the destination, get the new neighbours to help then?

    They would probably help but sometimes money is a big thing. And in order to move you first need to consider the moving cost and the other expenses. It's a hassle thing. Besides, getting through moving can cost a ton of cash. In fact, you might need a payday loan to help pay for it all. You have to pay the rent bill twice for the month, you have to pay the trash bill twice, you have to pay the cable bill twice, and that is not all. Every little thing seems to pile up and cost a ton of money, making relocating more costly than you know.
