The secret to our low prices is in the name - "You and I move."
UniMove offers affordable, FAST Moving services by allowing you to do what you can, and by stripping away all the waste of the huge operations. Let's look at the pros and cons of your other options.
Full Service Moving Companies' prices are crazy! You're literally paying for corporate office buildings, giant warehouses, fleets of big rigs, forklifts, hierarchies of admin with big paychecks, and massive corporate waste. They also shuffle your stuff from your house to Truck 1, to Warehouse, to Truck 2, possibly Warehouse 2, and Truck 3. This process is expensive, super S L O W, and creates exponentially greater chance for damage or loss.
The "Cheap" Guys are often SCAM artists who win contracts only with impossibly low quotes they have ZERO intentions of honoring. They get your stuff on their truck then hit you with hidden fees; they know from experience you will grumble...then pay. Unimove gets calls every month from people whose mover is doubling their price on moving day, often someone for whom Unimove wrote a Proposal; "Sorry Bobby, we signed with a company who 'beat your price' by a few hundred, but now they are demanding double. Can you help?"
Brokers do little more than sub-out your move to the "cheap guys." Brokers make lots of sparkling promises, but read the fine print! When you recognize their lies, hang up. They will call back with a "better offer", but if you let your stuff get into the possession of the rag-tag team of liars and cheap guys, well...good luck.
PODS, UBOX. Their customer reviews on Better Business Bureau (1.07 / 5 stars) should convince you to stay away. But wait, there is the fact that they also pay other sites to rank them
Doing-it-Yourself sounds good at first: You are the most trustworthy and cost-effective person to pack your boxes and carry them to the truck, but... 1) Are you sure you can pack the truck for max usage of space and least damage? 2) Can you really drive a loaded moving truck (and trailer) cross-country? 3) Can your body handle both, and 4) Do you really need to?
Sorry it seems sensational; I'm just giving you facts: DIYers wreck rental trucks every... single... day. Look at These. Consider the exhaustion and stress from weeks of prepping... Consider the day after day l o n g boring drive. Consider the distractions, phone calls, kids, pets, traffic... Consider your valuables. It is a recipe for disaster.
UniMove offers a better option:
About half the price of Full-Service, and only slightly more than trying to DIY.
We load once, and go straight to your new city. No off-loads. No warehouses.
Unimove honors the Contract. No scams. No hidden fees.
UniMove brings the truck, loads boxes you packed and household goods with either your team (saving you money) or ours, we drive directly to your new city, help team two unload, and we fly home. Easy and efficient. If challenges appear, we prefer to exceed expectations rather than whine and nickel and dime. Our reviews attest to this.
If there is a road to it, we will go anywhere in Continental 49 states. Many companies won't go off the beaten path or charge a huge premium to do so.
Most moving options (including PODS) take 10-20 days to get across country. Truck is loaded (1st) at your old place, unloaded (2nd) at regional distribution center. Days later, an 18-wheeler or sub-contractor arrives, your stuff is loaded again (3rd), driven across country, unloaded (4th) to yet another regional distribution center, reloaded (5th) to smaller truck, and finally at your destination Movers unload (6th). They call this "efficient.""
Every time your stuff is handled / moved, chances of damage are increased. When that happens, finding someone to make it right will be your months-long nightmare.
While your stuff inchworms across America, you burn money at hotels and restaurants, you "camp" in an empty house, or you impose at your mother-in-law's.
Corporate bureaucracy and greed is the antithesis to personal service. You hear it in their voices and in their policies. They don't really care, or worse, they really don't care.
