Get Me Moved!

Have you ever moved? I haven’t. I have never moved once. Oh, except for that time when I was 10 when we moved from one side of the city to the other. And that time after my father passed away. Hmm, then there was the 14 times in 2 years right after that. Or the time I moved in with my boyfriend (now my husband). Or the time we moved in with my mom. Or when I bought a house. Or the time I moved back in with my mom to help her out. Or when we moved back into our own house.

Okay, wait a minute.

Apparently I have moved a lot. I didn’t realize how many times until just now. I feel kind of like a gypsy, always moving from point A to point B. I don’t know if you realize it or not, if you haven’t moved much like me, but a lot goes in to moving. Getting all your stuff packed, making sure the movers don’t steal or lose anything, getting everything set up at your new place. It can be involved. Now for a couple of those moves I didn’t have much to worry about. Mom or dad took care of the details. But once you turn 18 apparently all that goes out the window and you are responsible for taking care of it all yourself (growing up sucks sometimes). YOU have to call 13 different movers to find one that isn’t exorbitantly expensive AND has availability on the day you want to move. YOU have to pack up all your stuff in a way that ensures it doesn’t get broken. YOU have to get your utilities transferred. YOU have to pay the troll to cross the bridge without getting eaten. Wait a minute, just kidding about that last one. Well, I mean the second to last one. Now you have someone in your corner to help you out with getting your power and internet and phone and cable moved, and that someone is http://www.allconnect.com.

Talk about simple. You put in your new address and boom. Phone service, Internet providers, Cable companies, Satellite providers, bundled services, all right there for you to compare. If you’re lucky they can show you gas and electricity too. There isn’t exactly a lot of competition in my area on those two fronts so I didn’t get any options, but for everything else? I love it. My sister literally moved this past weekend and we were able to use allconnect.com to look at all her options for setting up new service to get her a better deal on her Internet and TV. Major timesaver. Moving can be a real hassle and it can be expensive. It’s nice to finally have someone in your corner helping out with such a stressful event and helping you to save money at the same time.

Moving is a headache. Especially when you've been in one place for years. There are so many details. I've never heard of this before,but it sounds worth checking out.

I hate moving and I used to not even know who the providers were for our area or how to find out. This is the perfect answer to easing my frustrations.

I hate moving. When I was younger we moved every few years so we never owned a house till I was much older. Now Im retired so moving would be a horror. for me. Hope to never have to do it again . Prices are so high. This is interesting and thanks for the info but I hope I never need this.

That is so awesome! One of the worst parts of moving is trying to get all the utilities and what not in order.

Where was the service when I was moving a couple months ago? I have moved I think 10 times in the last 12 years. I could've definitely use this.

Moving can be so stressful and inconvenient without the right help. I guess moving companies play a great role.

MY husband is a military veteran so we moved a lot when he was still in the service. Ity can be a stressful process if you don't know what to do.

This sounds like an amazing service! We've move SO much...but are thankfully, in our final spot. :) We don't have any intentions of relocating for a really long time, but my brother is currently house hunting so I'll be sharing this with him!

I've moved a few times before. I've never moved to a house though unless it's living with parents. My husband and I are currently looking to get a house, so it's exciting! We can't wait to be able to be first time home buyers!

All our moving my boyfriend has done himself but when it comes to the bills I hate having to try and have everything arranged. This looks like a good deal.

I hate moving because packing and unpacking is a nightmare. Done it once only and I'm thankful for that because not planning on moving again anytime soon.

The last time we moved, we went from a 3rd story apt. to a single house. It was up and down all day. On move in day we had a nosy (but nice) neighbor in the way gabbing and offering us the use of his lawn mower. PLEASE!!! I was so sore and tired. Mowing the lawn was the last thing on my mind. I told him to feel free and take care of mowing because we had to get moved in. It shut him up.

I place moving right up there with dental work. Neither is pleasant, but must be done.
