Unpakt – Compare Moving Estimates

ss-unpakt

Moving is one of life’s most stressful events, and Unpakt is a web-app that can make the process just a little bit easier. The real-time price comparison engine helps people find the best movers at the lowest prices, and ultimately makes it simple to lock-in rates by booking through the online platform.

Start getting estimates for your big move by visiting the Unpakt site and entering some basic information about your upcoming plans. You’ll need to know where you’re moving to and from, when you’re going, and how much furniture you’re bringing. Rather than making a complete inventory of everything you need to pack, Unpakt can estimate the amount you need to move based on your home’s size. You’ll also need to select whether you’re interested in any additional moving services, like professional packing or box delivery. Based on the information you put in, Unpakt will provide you with quotes from well-reviewed movers in your area. Compare quotes, looking closely at price and user reviews, and see how minor tweaks in your plan (like eliminating the professional packing service, for example) impact the bottom line.

When you’ve done enough looking and you’re ready to commit, lock-in your price on the Unpakt platform. Unpakt will immediately reserve your move, and the web-app will charge your credit card 48 hours before the big day. Unpakt offers exact pricing quotes, which means you won’t be surprised by the final cost on the day of your move. You can also rest assured that any movers you find through Unpakt have a Certificate of Insurance (COI), which is sometimes necessary when moving into large apartment buildings.

Practical Uses:

  • Find out how much it will cost to move your belongings across town
  • See how much money you’ll save by packing boxes yourself
  • Have a mover come to your house for an in-person consultation
  • Book a mover during the busy summer season

Insider Tips:
