Get Instant Prices and Compare Movers Online with Unpakt

Ben Franklin famously wrote that “Nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” But what it should have said is, “…death, taxes, and that moving sucks.” We all know it’s true. I mean, even when you get to the point in life where you don’t have to swindle your friends into helping you move with promises of pizza and beer, it still totally sucks. Traditionally, finding a reasonable price for lifting, packing and transporting all of your worldly possessions (read: weird shit you’ve been hoarding) from one home to another was aggravating (to say the least). You’d repeat your inventory over and over… and over again, to one company at a time. Once you choose one, you may or may not wind up forking over extra money in hidden fees, surcharges, etc. Unpakt_Logo Luckily, some brilliant bastard invented, a price comparison site that helps eas the pain of finding a trustworthy (and affordable) mover. Unpakt streamlines the entire process into under an hour, giving hipsters moving from The Mission to Williamsburg the ability to compare local moving companies side-by-side – instantly. Unpakt, now available in NYC, San Francisco and 33 other major markets, does all the math and work for you. You simply enter the size of your place, where you’re going and what furniture you have (don’t worry, they help you figure it out). Then, you’re given exact prices for your move from a number of reputable local companies. You can compare their user reviews/prices and, once you’ve found your mover, book directly through the site. While Unpakt can’t find you that perfect warehouse space you’ve always dreamed of, they’ll certainly make moving into it a piece of cake. Check below for some screen shots. And, exclusively for Broke-Ass Stuart fans, receive 5% instant cash back on your next move. Enter promo code: BROKEASS on and save! Expires 7/31/13.
