We’re on a mission at Moved. Our mission is simple:

To eliminate stress from people’s lives.

To do this we’re tackling one of the most stressful events in life… moving.

We believe that moving doesn’t need to be stressful. That, through software and some old fashioned TLC, we can make this historically horrible experience into a great one.

If you think about it — moving is exciting. It represents the next chapter in your life. You might be moving in with your significant other, or starting your next job, or just starting fresh in a new neighborhood.

The positivity and excitement that comes along with moving is often overshadowed by stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety that is brought on by what has always been a fragmented, painful experience. Much of that pain (although not all) is brought on by the cost of moving.

Moving can be a financial burden

Moving is costly. And it’s even more expensive in the summer, when everyone else is moving. You had $500 in your head and every quote you get turns out to be more than double that.

(Life hack: here are the best days to move in the summer.)

The high cost of moving often serves as a barrier. It stops people in their tracks and forces them to rethink taking the plunge. They may not take that new job or hold off on other household purchases because they need to save for the move.

We think that’s wrong. Moving shouldn’t be a financial burden.

Which is why we’re thrilled to partner with Affirm.

Affirm has changed the way consumers make purchases and we’re proud to be the first company offering Affirm for your move.

With Affirm you can split your move cost into simple monthly payments. Pay over 3, 6, or 12 months (learn more). Moving no longer has to break the bank. You no longer have to halt that job search, or delay that purchase. Together with Affirm, we’re making moving accessible to everyone.
