If the stress of landing the perfect New York apartment weren’t nerve-racking enough, moving into it is certainly no picnic. You can either spring for the first fancy company you come across (and possibly fork over your firstborn’s college tuition in hidden fees) or risk a clumsy man-with-a-van situation to save a few bucks.
But now you can be absolutely sure of what you’re getting yourself into before ever breaking out a tape gun.
Unpakt, a new site from the entrepreneurial founder of FlatRate Moving, has streamlined the entire process.
Enter your addresses and move dates and make an inventory from a cool illustrated guide of possible furniture and belongings (which you can also save for later, never having to re-enter it all again). You’ll instantly receive a list of quotes with guaranteed pricing, and from there you can compare moving companies’ profiles (including user reviews) and book on the site. Of course afterward, you can review your own experience as well.
It won’t find that Soho loft you’ve dreamed of since Ghost, but it will make getting all your stuff into that quaint Upper West Side brownstone a breeze.
