Make Moving as Stress-Free as Possible

July 05, 2011

Moving is considered to be one of life’s most stressful events, and summertime is the busiest time of year for people to change residences. That leads up to a lot of stressed out people.

There are so many companies out there that claim they will help you make your move less stressful, but how do you know who you can really trust?

This is a good moment to think of the terrible moving experience that happened to your friend, family member or even yourself. Everyone has heard or gone through one. Now, what can you do about it?

Moving residents used to have the moving companies come to their homes to get an estimate. Today, everything is computer-based and the amount of options out there can be overwhelming.

According to a recent survey, those moving this year said they need two things to reduce the stress of moving: Trusted movers and comparable quotes.

Enter CLICK and MOVE.

“While industries such as travel and hospitality have harnessed the capabilities of the Internet to benefit both consumers and the companies that serve them, the moving industry lacks a one-stop-shopping service that standardizes the process of obtaining moving quotes from several companies,” said Kachur, President of CLICKandMOVE.

Through the image-based application, residents can create an inventory of their home’s items online and then receive bids against movers they have selected.

The site says it takes about 15 minutes to make the detailed household inventory, and all the movers on the website are members of the American Moving and Storage Association, so you can be sure you are working with reliable companies.

“Until now, in order to create an accurate estimate, movers had to send a salesperson into consumers homes to complete an inventory of furniture to be moved. This is a significant expense for the movers and more importantly, a major inconvenience for the customer,” said Kachur.

“Using CLICKandMOVE, local and long distance moving companies all bid on the same household furniture inventory so consumers are finally in control — dramatically driving down the cost, time and inconvenience of entertaining 3 or 4 salespeople from various moving companies in their home.”

While the first mover quote on the CLICK and MOVE website is free, additional quotes from other movers will cost you $4.95 each.

Now, think back to that nightmare moving experience you thought of earlier. Think it’s worth spending $15 to $20 to avoid something like that happening again?

Nice information. I must say that this is one of the most interesting for me. Thank you and continue to share …


I completely agree. Trustworthy movers and comparable quotes are the best way to get the best quotes. Also, since everything is computer based now a customer has to be very specific when relaying what they have to the moving company.
