What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews
Relocation can result in anxiety, loss of appetite, insomnia, and cabbage-hands. Today’s Groupon helps prevent a box-induced breakdown: for $150, you’ll get a truck, up to three movers (depending on size of place and Certified's manpower recommendation), and four hours of moving time—plus the flat fuel charge—from Certified Moving Systems, an up to $359 value Monday–Thursday, up to $399 Friday–Sunday. Certified estimates that a typical three-bedroom, single-family home takes three movers five to seven hours, so depending on your living situation, you may require fewer men, less time with a smaller place, or a longer move period if you have more stuff (additional fees may apply for additional hours and manpower).
Like ants in an Olympic swimming pool, Certified’s hierarchy of experienced movers (supervisors, coordinator, support staff) help to make sure your move goes efficiently. Each employee undergoes strict background checks and drug testing and has an average of seven years of moving experience, so you can feel comfortable knowing your goods are in good hands. All furniture is padded and shrink-wrapped for protection. In the unlikely event your stuff gets damages, Certified is fully insured and have a streamlined claims process to handle any unforseen accidents that might occur on moving day. They are proud members of the Southwest Movers Association and strictly adhere to its quality and control guidelines. Certified is also licensed by the Texas Department of Transportation and is Better Business Bureau–approved.
People often move due to major changes in their life (moving to a new city, divorce, joining the cast of VH1's My Antonio, etc.), which can be exhausting enough on their own. Hiring professionals can alleviate the stress of schlepping boxes and bed frames so you can focus on the bigger picture. The cost of renting and gassing up a truck will likely cost you around the same amount—and you still have to do the worst part by yourself. Certified Moving Systems will effortlessly condense and carry your life so you can shift your attention toward adapting to your new surroundings.
Note: This Groupon is available for local Houston households moving within the greater Houston area. All moves must be scheduled by 4/19/10, but can be rescheduled up to 3 weeks in advance of your move date.
