think outside of the moving box
Fort Smith, AR (Vocus) July 17, 2010
Summer is the busiest season for moving. The big challenge is finding a reputable moving company offering the right moving services at the right price. TLC’s do-it-yourself decorating show, Designing Spaces, was invited along for one family’s experience with MoveBuilder, a nationwide moving company recently introduced to the market. Since MoveBuilder was designed with the consumer’s needs and budget in mind, the Connor family was able to build a move that addressed their specific requirements. Within the Designing Spaces episode, MoveBuilder shares moving tips on how to ’build‘ a successful move and save money in the process.
The current economy and real estate market have brought some challenges to relocation. For instance, as with the Connors, one parent may have to move early for a new job while the other stays behind to sell the house in a sluggish real estate market. Or a retired couple may need to relocate to a less expensive part of the country to stretch their nest egg. A family with teenage sons will likely need different moving services than a single female. Each move has a unique set of circumstances to address and cookie cutter moving services don’t solve problems or lessen the stress of relocation. Many people are facing a cross country move for job opportunities these days and the one common concern is saving money on the final moving cost.
The old days, when full-service moving companies and self-moving services were the only options, are over. With the introduction of companies like MoveBuilder, consumers now have flexible options that solve today’s moving dilemmas. Whether there are parking issues, needs for storage, needs for guaranteed transit or other issues that make moving difficult, MoveBuilder offers a solution.
This Designing Spaces episode explores ways to “think outside of the moving box,” save money and get the moving services that are most important. “Normally we don’t think about everything that goes along with moving until we’re actually moving,” said Kay Lynn Clay, marketing manager for MoveBuilder. “Anyone planning a move in the near future should tune into this Designing Spaces episode before they get moving quotes and book a moving company.”
About 32 million Americans move annually and about 4.5 million of those move long distance. The majority of all moves take place in the summer. With a large number of people scrambling to find movers each summer, the insight provided in this Designing Spaces episode can save consumers time and money.
