Moving is stressful. Whether it’s a move across the street or across the country, there is always so much to think about. From finding a new place to live and sorting through all your belonging to turning out the lights for the last time in your old home, it’s not exactly a relaxing time in life! While nothing is going to turn moving into the equivalent of a spa vacation, Unpakt can help take some of the pressure off by allowing you to find the best movers for your needs. As the first web app/digital marketplace/price comparison site for moving services, Unpakt makes it easy to find and compare movers.
Finding the right movers with Unpakt
The whole process of finding movies with Unpakt is a breeze. In just a few steps, you can find the perfect movers and book them for your big day. Here’s how it works:
- Start by telling Unpakt what size how you want to move. Choose from the basic studio apartment all the way up to a 4-bedroom home. If you have a more complicated move, or, say, a mansion, you can request an in-home consultation right on the front page.
- Next, let Unpakt know just what you’re planning to move. You have two choices here. One, you can enter in everything manually by selecting the different types of boxes and furniture on the left. Two, you can let Unpakt add the typical items found in your type of home, and then customize it yourself. This option is a lot easier because you just have to delete the items you don’t have, rather than sit there and add the items you do have. You can easily change the quantities of the items to reflect your home’s inventory.
- On the third page, plug in your current address and your future address. Click to the next page and you’ll see a list of movers available, along with exact prices! They really do mean “exact” too, the only way those prices can change is if you make a change to your move. If there are no movers available in your area, you can sign up for email alerts to let you know when the service is available.
- Select your mover, then head to the next page! There, you can add on extra services, such as storage rental, professional packing, and more. Finalize your move by clicking “Finalize.” That’s it! Your move is all scheduled and you have one less thing to worry about!
