a subsidiary of Acumen Driving Specialists LLC
The secret to our low prices is in our name - "You and I move."
Unimove is the registered business name for the moving division of Acumen Driving Specialists LLC.
In the past, MOVING options were limited, and each had serious drawbacks:
Full Service Moving Companies do everything, but their prices are crazy! You're literally paying for corporate office buildings, distribution 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, S L O W, and creates exponentially greater chance for damage or loss.
The "Cheap" Guys are very likely scam artists who win contracts only with impossible quotes they have no intention of honoring. 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 contract! When you recognize their lies... Run! Once your stuff is in the possession of the rag-tag team of liars and cheap guys, well...good luck.
Doing-it-Yourself or doing what you can, like pack your boxes and help load the truck is a great way to save money, but
1) can you load a truck for max space and least damage? Do you really need to?
2) can you really drive a loaded moving truck (and trailer) cross-country? Sorry if it seems sensational, I'm just giving you facts: DIY Movers wreck rental trucks every. single. day. Look at These. Consider the exhaustion and stress from weeks of packing/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. Get help from professionals with proven track records of hundreds of cross-country trips with almost NO damage to cargo.
UniMove offers a new, better option:
About half-the-price of Full-Service Movers.
Only slightly more than trying to Do-It-ALL-Yourself.
We load once, and get there fast. No off-loads, no sub-contractors, no BS.
How UniMove Works:
UniMove brings the truck, leads the loading of the truck with either A) your helpers or B) helpers UniMove hires for you through MovingHelp.com, we drive the truck directly to your new city, help team two 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.
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/sub-contractor center. Days later, when the "Cross country" 18-wheeler or the sub-contractor 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) then reloads to smaller truck (5th), and finally at your destination Movers unload (6th). They call this "efficient."
Every time your stuff is handled / moved, the chances for damage are increased. If/when that happens, finding someone to take responsibility and 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 stay at weird Uncle Fred'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.
