This is a sponsored post for a very cool service that you should know about if you ever plan to move again.
Have I told the story about the mover who spent the ENTIRE day packing up dishes in our first little apartment kitchen?
While his partner packed up the entire-rest-of-the-house?
Did I mention that while he assured me over the phone that he had experience with clients who had lots of dishes, he finally admitted at the end of Moving Day that he had NEVER seen anyone with as many dishes as I had.
It’s possible I got a little scan-happy with the Wedding Registry Scanner.
But when all was said and done, I didn’t mind being called (not really, but it was implied) a Dish Hoarder. Because the fact was . . . we had MOVERS!! Thanks to my parents feeling sorry for their pregnant daughter, we were able to experience the joys of having someone do a lot of the work of moving for us.
Also, my husband has a philosophy about moving. After college, once you get a real job . . . you get one hey-guys-wanna-help-me-move? move. After that, it’s time to hire movers.
He’s pretty passionate about this, having been single (with a truck!) until he was 32. He feels the special pain of a man who has been asked to help someone move sixteen-too-many times.
So, when Unpakt.com asked to sponsor this post about their service for simplifying the process of finding a mover, I said, “Sure!”
I’ve been through the process twice, and it’s stressful. Anything to help ease an already/always high-stress time makes sense to check out.
I’m not moving any time soon (hopefully!), but I did play on the website to see how it works. Honestly . . . it was fun. It’s set up to help you truly figure out what you’re going to need.
This system lets you be very specific about your moving needs, so you can get real quotes, NOT ballpark figures. Like, right then.
When I talked to Mr. Mover Guy over the phone years ago, I obviously didn’t communicate exactly what he was getting into. Our bill ended up being significantly higher than his estimate.
The detailed steps for getting your estimate on Unpakt.com make it possible for them to guarantee the quote. Right. You get exact prices for movers they’ve pre-screened. The only way your price will change is if you edit your inventory or conditions (distance, stairs, etc.)
Please note that in the above picture, the move is 29 miles away and it’s for 263 cubic feet of stuff. Personally, I have a lot more stuff than that!

Like I said, this is a sponsored post. Unpakt paid me to share their site with you. However, the opinions and dish hoarding confessions are all mine. And . . . if we find that perfect, affordable house with a pool AND a pond, I’ll be heading to Unpakt.com to check out prices for movers.
