Moving is stressful. In fact, moving is so taxing that it frequently rates as one of life's most stressful events - second only to death of a family member and divorce.

Summer is the busiest time of year for Americans changing residences and with the surge in Americans relocating over the coming months, consumers are full of questions - from price and logistics to how to source out reputable local moving companies and avoid scams.

With the sheer number of options available (from DIY to full service) consumers have to be able to protect their belongings and their pocketbooks. But interestingly, over 80% of the 37+ million Americans moving this year report that to reduce the stress of moving, they require two things: Trusted movers and easily accessible and comparable quotes.

According to moving expert and President of CLICKandMOVE, Don Kachur, the Internet has revamped everything from travel planning to bill paying, but somehow the process of getting a moving quote has remained unchanged for decades.

"While industries such as travel and hospitality have harnessed the capabilities of the Internet to benefit both consumers and the companies that serve them, the moving industry lacks a one-stop-shopping service that standardizes the process of obtaining moving quotes from several companies," said Kachur.

CLICKandMOVE is a unique icon and image-based application that allows relocating consumers to create an accurate inventory of furniture items online. From there, customers can select movers to bid against each other in an online marketplace. Under this model, the consumer is in the driver's seat – controlling who they meet, when they meet them and what inventory each mover is bidding on. It only takes about 15 minutes to create a detailed household inventory using CLICKandMOVE and every mover is given the same standard inventory so quotes are easy to compare.

"Until now, in order to create an accurate estimate, movers had to send a salesperson into consumers homes to complete an inventory of furniture to be moved. This is a significant expense for the movers and more importantly, a major inconvenience for the customer. Using CLICKandMOVE, local and long distance moving companies all bid on the same household furniture inventory so consumers are finally in control - dramatically driving down the cost, time and inconvenience of entertaining 3 or 4 salespeople from various moving companies in their home."

In addition, provides online tips for preparation of items on moving day and most importantly, all of the moving companies on the website are members of the American Moving and Storage Association so you can be assured of competitive prices AND reliable service.
