Unpakt Moving Companies Price Compare Site, Sponsored Post…
Moving is no fun. Period. Forms must be filled out with an address change, stuff has to be packed, deep-cleaning needs to be done, etc. Who needs the extra stress of searching for and comparing moving companies?! Fortunately, Unpakt can do that for you.

Unpakt is a ‘digital marketplace and price comparison site for reputable moving companies’. That means they search out legit, quality moving companies, collect their prices, then they display all that info side-by-side along with user reviews so you can easily decide what fits your needs and budget best. Unpakt can save you time, money, and the headache of ending up with a less-than-professional company that throws your furniture around like airport luggage.
Instead of telling you how Unpakt works, I’ll let them show you:
The process is easy and fairly painless. I found the layout to be very straight-forward and clear while navigation was a breeze. One feature that stood out to me was the fact that you could put in all your moving needs and see the price comparisons BEFORE you sign up. Many companies rope you into their mailing list to even request a quote and then hound you until you follow up on it – so not cool. Even after you get your initial quote, you have the ability to save it for later and even edit it up to two days before your move.
The inventory part may seem daunting but it’s actually pretty useful. When we last moved, we had to mentally take note of what furniture we had and what needed to be moved where. I also tediously catalogued what was in each and every box (well, at least until it was crunch time and we had to just throw everything in and hope for the best when trying to find it later on). With a little click-click here and click-click there, you can have an organized, visual list that will keep you from freaking out and can help Unpakt get you exact quotes. Regarding the quotes, you pay what you see with no extra costs and they include:
- Professional mover
- Moving truck, transportation, equipment
- Protection for furniture, breakable items
- Certificate of Insurance
Other services like in-home consultation, storage, packing/unpacking, and custom crates can be added on as well, though fees for these may differ per company. You are charged 48 hours before the move and no money needs to be paid to the movers on moving day, unless you feel the need to give them a tip. Again, the last thing you want to deal with is figuring out your bill after you’re pooped and just want to settle into your new place to sleep.
Unpakt is available across the country with more movers being added all the time. I think it’s a great service and about time someone applied the price comparison idea to such an important task – moving. When our lease is up toward the end of the year, I may be turning to Unpakt for some help if it turns out that we need to move yet again.
