    Move Preparation tips from Unicorn Moving

    Unicorn moving has been dedicated to assisting residents of Austin with all of their moving needs since 1994. The next following suggestions will make your move as easy and hassle free as possible.

    Notify the following of your change of address:

    • Post Office
    • Banks
    • Credit Cards Companies
    • Utility Providers
    • Subscriptions


    In order to prevent you boxes and the contents inside of them from being damaged please ensure that all boxes are packed to the top and taped closed. Indicate which rooms in your new home the boxes will be going into so our movers can place them into the appropriate room. If necessary,  clearly mark boxes as fragile.

    Loaner Box Program

    Our loaner box program gives you a full refund on the first $100 of boxes purchased and a 25% refund on any additional boxes. Please pick up and return all boxes to Unicorn Moving and Storage. In order to receive a refund, boxes must be in good condition upon return. There is no need to remove the tape from the boxes; simply cut the tape, flatten the boxes and return categorized according to size.
