The Americans have something like this; you get 3 options: 1. Full move- just like us 2. “Full Diddy” (I don’t think this is the real name but that’s what they call it)- They give you cash, you move yourself. 3. Partial Diddy- you rent (not own) a trailer, weigh it empty, put some of your stuff in it and weigh it again, they pay by weight and the movers take the rest. It’s also really common for them to take cash in lieu of HHT and the days they would have taken for HHT become part of their TNL or unpack or whatever they want to do with those days, most families use it to explore America on their way.I've had DND move me for thousands of dollars. I've moved myself when I hired Two Men and a Truck to move me. I've had Two Men Without a Truck (or a few buddies) load me at one end and unload me at the other while I drove the Penske truck myself (rented it in the US - much cheaper than U-Haul)
Doing it myself was less stressful then wondering where the semi with six loads on it is on any given day and sure costs a lot less. It might be easier to simply give our folks a few extra days to move and just give them a lump sum payment based on distance and size of family and let them do whatever they want and just pocket the excess. Amazing how smoothly things work for a young pup when he can make a small profit from it.
