Imagine a world where moving homes doesn’t equate to immense financial stress, particularly for those already grappling with rising living costs.
Welcome to the heart of the Kindness In Transit Initiative, birthed by Majesty Moving. Through this venture, we’re offering essential, low or no-cost moving assistance to our fellow Southern Utah residents who find themselves caught in the economic whirlwind of increasing rents and living expenses.
Our core belief? In unity, there’s strength. Let’s combine our efforts and ensure everyone in our community has a home they can afford.
St. George has seen a surge in population growth and economic development in recent years.
While this growth brings many benefits, it also presents challenges for residents struggling with the rising cost of living.
The Kindness In Transit Initiative was created in response to these challenges, offering support and assistance to those facing hardships due to increased housing costs and rent hikes.
A DEEPER LOOK
In recent years, Southern Utah has experienced a significant increase in the cost of living, making it more challenging for many residents to afford basic necessities. This growing financial burden can be attributed to several factors, which we’ll explore in more detail below:
Population Growth: As more people move to Southern Utah, attracted by its natural beauty and job opportunities, the demand for housing increases. This influx of new residents drives up housing costs, making it harder for long-time community members to afford their homes.
Limited Housing Supply: The rapid population growth has outpaced the construction of new housing units, leading to a limited supply of available homes. This scarcity further contributes to the rising cost of housing, as people compete for a smaller pool of available properties.
Economic Development: The growth of industries and businesses in Southern Utah has led to increased job opportunities and a stronger local economy. However, this economic development also contributes to the rising cost of living, as higher wages and increased consumer demand drive up prices for goods and services.
At Majesty Moving, we believe that strong connections and a sense of belonging are vital to a thriving community. The Kindness In Transit Initiative not only offers practical support for those facing financial challenges but also fosters meaningful connections between community members. By working together, we can create an environment where everyone feels valued, supported, and encouraged.
Majesty Moving is not just a service; it’s a heartfelt promise to our community. Our endeavors have always been intertwined with community service, be it offering rapid move-out aid for victims of domestic violence or our proud association with stalwarts like Habitat for Humanity. Kindness In Transit is our newest chapter in this commitment:
Ensuring Fairness and Transparency
Our Majesty Moving team is dedicated to carefully reviewing all nominations for the Kindness In Transit Initiative. We want to make sure we’re selecting the most deserving families and individuals in need. Here’s a glimpse of how we do it:
Each month, we choose one family or individual to receive assistance through our initiative. As the program continues to grow, we look forward to expanding our reach and helping even more Southern Utah residents during their time of need.
To qualify for the Kindness In Transit Initiative, nominees must meet the following requirements:
Financial Struggles: Nominees should be experiencing financial difficulties, making it challenging for them to afford moving expenses. This may include facing job loss, unexpected medical bills, or other financial hardships that impact their ability to move.
Lack of Support: Nominees should have limited support from family, friends, or community members during the moving process. This initiative is designed to help those who might otherwise struggle to complete a move due to lack of assistance.
Southern Utah Residency: Nominees must be residents of Southern Utah. As the program grows, we hope to expand our service area to help even more individuals and families in need.

The Johnson family, consisting of Tom, Emily, and their two young children, found themselves in a challenging situation when their landlord suddenly increased their rent by an unsustainable amount. With limited savings and no immediate support system, they faced the daunting prospect of finding a new home in the midst of Southern Utah’s skyrocketing housing costs.
Here’s what the Johnson family had to say about their experience with the Kindness In Transit Initiative:
“We can’t express how grateful we are for the support we received from Majesty Moving’s Kindness In Transit Initiative. During a time when we felt overwhelmed and unsure of our future, the compassionate and efficient services provided by the Majesty Moving team truly made a difference in our lives. We strongly encourage anyone facing similar challenges to take advantage of this amazing program – it’s a life-changer!” – Tom and Emily Johnson
