89th And Broke

I'm a young professional living in Astoria (formerly of Williamsburg, the UES and Murray Hill - I move a lot!). I'm always looking for something fun to do or the best place to grab a drink and dinner at an affordable price around the city. Have a suggestion? Email me at Laura AT 89thandbroke DOT com.

Try This Trick! Move Easily with Unpakt – Plus a Discount Code!

I’ve moved 4 times in NYC, so I know how tough moving is. After I moved myself in once, I swore to God I would never do it again and have hired movers since. When this website, Unpakt, contacted me, thought you guys who are thinking about moving soon might find it useful – and of course, we have a discount code for you. Jenna from Unpakt explains the service below, but you can also check out this review on TechCrunch.

Moving in NYC can be a nightmare. There must be an easier way than bribing your friends into back pain with pizza and beer…

Cue Unpakt.com, a price comparison site that helps ease the pain of finding a trustworthy and affordable mover. Like Kayak or Expedia, but for moving! unpakt-logoUnpakt churns out exact prices for your move from a number of reputable NYC movers, and you can compare their user reviews/prices. Once you’ve found your perfect match, book directly on the site.

To ease the pain even further, get 5% instant cash back on your upcoming move. Enter promo code: 89TH when booking on Unpakt.com. Move must be
booked by 7/31/13.

Bonus: Unpakt compiled this list of money-saving moving tips for your move!

  • You may get a better price if you’re flexible with your move date/time. Avoid the 1st, 15th and 30th/31st of the month if you can.
  • Declutter your home before you move to help eliminate stuff you don’t want to pay to move.
  • Read reviews – bad movers can cost more in the long run.
  • Prepare for post-move costs ahead of time by simply thinking ahead. Contact your new utility company, purchase cleaning supplies in advance, etc.
  • Measure twice, move once! If you can’t fit your couch, don’t spend money to move it.
  • Use as much luggage as you can. You can quickly fill duffle bags and suitcases with “don’t forget” items that could get lost in a box for days.

    Cool. I think Moveline is better: http://www.Moveline.com

    Hi Jane, I researched unpakt and moveline. Moveline has 0 yelp reviews.. they don’t even have a yelp profile! Unpackt on the other hand has a 5 star rating on yelp with so many reviews!! Definitely going with unpackt!!

    Just used this code and it’s still active. I also researched both companies and unpakt provides prices instantly and lets you actually book with the mover… moveline takes a few days and they get back to you. I also like that i can see all reviews (unpakt customers, yelp, google, etc.) for the movers on unpakt – very transparent.
