It can be incredibly time-consuming to get quotes from movers. I remember that I gave-up after getting two quotes the last time I moved simply because I ran out of time. I was also frustrated that movers gave estimates instead of quotes. Unpakt reduces the amount of time it takes to get quotes and allows you to easily compare moving services. When you get a quote from Unpakt, it’s a guaranteed price that won’t change unless you edit your inventory or moving conditions. Unpakt was recently named one of the Top 10 Apps for Home & Work by The Next Web. Check to see if Unpakt is available in your area by visiting Unpakt.com and scrolling down  to the map. Then click on a state to see which moving companies are providing quotes thru Unpakt.

Unpakt MapI want to tell you about my first move after I graduated from college, because the experience  reinforced for me how important it is to choose a good moving company, one with a good reputation and satisfied customers. Now, I didn’t get to select my moving company because my employer for my first job out of college was paying for my move. So I blindly trusted that my employer was using a reputable moving company that would provide good customer service – and they probably did. But there was something tugging at my intuition that something wasn’t quite right about the driver when he showed up at my apartment to deliver all of my stuff (thank goodness it really was all of my stuff and nothing was missing).

I was a satisfied customer because I got all of my stuff without anything missing or being damaged. But I still had this nagging feeling that there was something unusual about my move, and that suspicion was confirmed when I got a call from the moving company asking me how my move went and if I had any paperwork from the delivery? Because the moving company had no record of my delivery – as far as they knew, all of my stuff had been stolen! That’s because the driver abandoned the truck somewhere and apparently left the company quite abruptly. I then felt so lucky that I did receive my stuff and that the driver delivered everything before abandoning the truck. Moving is such a huge event, you want to be able to trust your moving company so read all customer reviews and ask lots of questions!

Upakt PricesUnpakt knows how important customer reviews are so they make them easy to access within their system. After you register for a free account on Upakt, you can then start planning your move by creating a household inventory. Upakt provides free apps for your smartphone to login to and manage your move. You’ll be able to compare movers based on prices and customer reviews. I love that you can really compare movers ‘apples to apples’ once you get quotes because I remember the challenge of comparing several moving services when they bill you in different ways. I also love that you don’t have to go somewhere else to get customer reviews, they appear beside the quote.

Keep Unpakt in mind for your next move and I hope it helps make moving much easier! This post is sponsored by Unpakt, but all opinions expressed are my own. Please visit my Disclosure Policy.
