The Move-In Service

Now that I’ve completed another move-in (it’s almost an annual thing, sadly,) here’s a concept I want to see happen: the move-in service.

Let’s say your stuff is in your apartment, and you need to set up all of your utilities. You call the move-in service and give them particulars: name, address, all that good stuff. You inform them of dates and times that work well for utility workers who need to come into your home or apartment. Then, they call all the utilities for you and set everything up. In an hour or so, the move-in service calls you back with all the hardcore information.

The reason I suggest this service is because it’s a bit of a pain to have to figure out who does what, call them, and then set up all the times and dates. Either a website or a call-in service like this would really make things easier.

Fantastic idea, Paul. Getting all the utilities/cable/internet/Chillows set up is probably the worst part about moving. Sure, packing and moving is bad, but moving to a new place with a warm Chillow? Unacceptable.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
