    I used phlatbed recently, easy to use, simple and straightforward - on-demand. Used Dolly in the past during grad school days in Oregon. Depends on where you are, both apps are big in different parts of the country.

    Never used TaskRabbit...yet.

      Why force F to Ph. Just drop the vowels like everyone else. LOL.

      Love the proliferation of this service.  You know the old adage, "have a friend with a pickup truck", but no one does.  

      Hey, look at that. In Boston.  I had no idea.

    I would never let someone jam their furniture in my car. I think you'd have trouble finding an uber driver that would, frankly.

    I will second the point on calling a local moving company.  While you may be under the impression that they are expensive, if you set the expectation correctly, no matter how small the job, they'd be willing to help you.  I had a couch, table, and small bed, to be moved to my parents' house, and I called a local moving company who usually does big moves that cost thousands of dollars (multiple trucks, several workers, potentially multiple days).  

    Two guys showed up in a pickup truck, I had to do nothing.  Charged me for 2 hours, and went on their way.  Cost me less than $100.

    The key is to be patient and work within their schedule.  They are always happy to make a few extra bucks.

    I would use Bungii. I have used them before and got my couch home for less than $55..
