Home Depot Is Betting That America’s Miserable Movers Will Make Good Customers

May is the big month for relocating, and generally stressing out over it

In case you haven’t experienced it yourself, moving sucks. A recent survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by Life Storage revealed that the average move entails two nights of lost sleep, two arguments with a partner, and two crying jags. Nearly a third of Americans consider moving to be more stressful than interviewing for a job, and 13% say that a week in jail would be easier than a move. So movers, one can surmise, are pretty miserable people.
