Moving can be oh soooo very stressful. Whether you are moving two blocks or thousands of miles away, the steps involved in the adventure are the same. These steps usually include finding a place to live, organizing and packing, the actual move itself, unpacking and all the painful tasks in between.
Recently my adult son moved from his one bedroom apartment here in Los Angeles to a condo just a few miles away. My husband, thinking he still had the stamina and body of his 30 year old self, decided that we could move my son without much effort or problems. He was partially right, we were able to move my son. He was very wrong on the “without much effort or problem part.” When we were finished, if we would have been listed on a NFL weekly injury report, it would have said: “Out for the year!” Did I mention that both apartment and condo were on the second story with no elevator?
Never again. Next time we will be using a moving service and I think I have found the perfect tool to make that process as smooth as possible. Unpakt is the first digital marketplace that lets you find reputable moving companies, compare exact prices and user reviews, and book online instantly. In less than an hour, you can plan your move. It is available right here in Los Angeles and many other major markets from coast to coast!
One of the things that many people worry about when moving is getting their belongings to the new destination intact and undamaged. Unpakt rigorously pre-screens all movers to give you peace of mind so you can concentrate on other aspects of your move. All movers are experienced, reliable and insured.
The way the website works is very simple. You plan your move by entering the basics of your move such as where, when and what you are moving. Next you will compare the moving companies by looking at their exact prices, user reviews and services they offer. Then you book with a guaranteed price. The price will only change if you edit your inventory or conditions of the move.
I think one of the reasons we did not use a mover when we moved our son is because it seemed like a bit of a hassle to arrange it all. With Unpakt, you can make the arrangements quickly and with very little effort right on the internet. No wasting time comparison shopping on the phone and comparing prices and services. No waiting for companies to call you back. Prices are guaranteed and movers are pre-screened. Next time my husband will not get a say in the matter. I will have it all arranged and booked before he even knows someone is moving.

This is a sponsored post. Unpakt paid Imperfect Women to share their site with you. However, the opinions about Unpakt (and my husband) are all my own. After my husband retires and we decide to move back to Wisconsin where we can live with windows opened and doors unlocked at night, we will be heading to Unpakt.com to check out prices for movers.
