Making a simpler move

As much as we all love to move into a new house or apartment, you know the one with all the things that you've been wanting all along, the actual process of moving can still be quite a troublesome one. I know all about it, as we've moved so many times, sometimes just from one city to another, or from the city to the suburb, but several times internationally as well. That's when you really meet your mettle.

Luckily, thanks to the Internet, now one can find just the kind of help that is required to make the move a pleasant one. Yes, you read right, a move can be pleasant!

Companies like CityMove.com work on finding the best solution for you, and not the other way around. By using a reverse-auction system, customers can enter details of their move and post it on the CityMove website, and then just sit back and let the bids come in. Once you find the one that suits you best, accept it and then let the movers handle it all for you, right from getting the right kind of packing boxes to assisting with address changes.

I just wish a company like this had been able to handle my last move, which would have made it a lot easier to handle and more importantly, I would not have had to toss out so much of my stuff, since I had no other option at that time, which I really now regret. Considering that these New York movers have built up quite a reputation for themselves, and have been featured in prominent newspapers and magazines like the NYTtimes.com, Lifehacker, SmartMoney.com, CNET, NY1 and CBSNews.com among others, just shows that they are not one of those fluke operators, but are someone who know their business and take the responsibility seriously.
