I mentioned this idea a while back, but I didn’t follow up at the time. Basically, I’d like to set up a section on the main site to collect and share a small list of high-quality services that help with the other aspects of apartment hunting and moving. I’ve set up an experimental version of this under the “Recs” link in the filter box.
The first entry is a service that was recommended by a good friend of mine: CityMove.com . It’s a site that lets you search for, compare, and read reviews of movers in your area. My friend said she found some great movers that were fast, careful, and cheap. If anyone else uses CityMove, I’d be interested to hear about your experience.
I only had a few moving experiences, so if anyone knows of some really good services that I should add, that’d be great. I think one big one that would help a lot of people out is something to help get credit reports so that you don’t have to pay the $30+ credit check fee for every place you apply to. Are there any that don’t require you to jump through a ton of hoops to get a free/cheap report?
