We are unemployed US Military Veterans that are seeking assistance to purchase a used Uhaul truck to start our moving business.

My name is Gregory Sledge. I am a United States Army Veteran and founder of Veterans Moving Help.

Due to the economy I found myself unemployed with no prospects for employment so, I began using my creativity to generate work for myself. I placed ads on craigslist to help people load and unload rental trucks such as U-Haul and Penske. I always distinguished myself as a Veteran in my ad and people responded. I began to get busy and I recruited other Veterans to help man the jobs.

It helped that we are in Gainesville, Florida, home of the University of Florida as students are constantly moving in and out.

It quickly became apparent that the work we were getting was only the tip of the iceberg. Moving trucks are constantly on the roadways. I began to dream of  a Veterans moving and labor truck. With a truck we could get more work and make more money. Take that money and buy another truck hire more Veterans and repeat the process. We can become a successful Veteran owned and operated moving company!

The people of Gainesville have responded favorably to us as Veterans and show their appreciation for our service by hiring us. We know this will continue and we will thrive once we get our own truck.

I don't have the money to buy one and my credit union won't loan to us citing my lack of credit.(Not bad credit just no credit). They steadfastly refuse to give me the opportunity to build my credit despite my paying off credit builder loan.

Please donate to Veterans Moving Help that we may purchase our moving truck.

From there we will expand city by city, growing and providing jobs for Veterans nationwide. We need your help that we may employ ourselves and take care of our families. Our target amount is $10,000 that will get us a used U-haul truck and take care of insurance, title, tags and eye catching graphics.

Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU for your support.
