The secret to our low prices is in our name - "You and I move."
Unimove is the newly registered name for the moving division of Acumen Driving Specialists LLC. Only the name has changed - same great services and prices. I just wanted customers looking for a mover to know they've come to the right place.
In the past, your Moving options were limited, and each had serious drawbacks.
Full Service Moving Companies do everything for you - but their prices are crazy! You're literally paying for Corporate office buildings, enormous distribution warehouses, fleets of big rigs, forklifts, giant hierarchies of big bosses, and vast corporate waste. Also, your stuff gets shuffled and stored: from your house to truck 1, to warehouse, to truck 2, possibly warehouse 2, and truck 3. This system is S L O W and creates exponentially greater chance for damage or loss.
The Cheapest Guys are often unlicensed, unbonded rookies and/or quite possibly straight-up scam artists. Brokers write incredibly low quotes and make verbal promises, few of which they intend to honor. (Ever notice how the word "Incredible" actual means "not credible"?) They sub-out your move to the lowest bidder and once your stuff is in their possession, well...good luck. Ask parents and friends to share a moving headache or read some of these.
Do-it-Yourself is a way to save...
1) You are the most cost-effective people for the job,
2) with tips provided by UniMove you are perfectly capable of packing your boxes, and
3) with family, friends, or inexpensive local loaders, you can bring your stuff to the truck where UniMove's driver will expertly load it.....
DRIVING a loaded Moving Truck cross-country, however, is NOT something everyone can safely do! Sorry if it seems I'm sensationalizing; It's a fact. DIY Movers wreck rental trucks... every. single. day. See these.
Consider the long boring hours/days, the exhaustion and stress from weeks of prepping, the distractions, phone calls, kids, pets, traffic... It's a recipe for disaster. Leave the driving to professionals with hundreds of Cross Country trips.
UniMove offers a new, better option:
About 50% off Full-Service Movers' prices.
About 25% off price of Brokers who subcontract your move to lowest bidder.
About 10% more than trying to Do-it-all-Yourself*.

How UniMove Works:
UniMove brings an empty truck, leads the loading of the truck with you and your helpers**, drives the truck directly to your new city, helps you unload, and then we fly home. Easy and efficient. When challenges appear, we prefer to exceed expectations, rather than whine and nickel and dime. Our reviews attest to this.
** Even when you have to hire help, the final cost is still far cheaper than the average moving quote.
We go to anywhere in Continental 48 states. BigCo often refuses to go off beaten path.
They take 10-20 days to get across country. They load (1st time) a truck at your old place, then unload (2nd time) at a regional distribution center. Later, when the "Cross country" 18-wheeler arrives your stuff is loaded again (3rd), but because an 18-wheeler won't fit into most neighborhoods, on the other side of country, yet another crew unloads (4th time) /reload smaller truck (5th time) / and finally at your destination Movers unload (6th time) Ironically, they do this in the name of Efficiency.
Juggling your belongings numerous times exponentially increases the likelihood of damage. If that happens, finding someone to take responsibility and make it right may become your new fresh Hell.
While your stuff inchworms across America, you burn money at hotels and restaurants, or you "camp" in an empty shell of a house.
Corporate bureaucracy 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.
