Improve Your Move

By Rob Pegoraro

I HATE MOVING. The only smart thing I've done in my last six moves was hire a moving company this spring, saving me from my own incompetence at stuffing my belongings into U-Hauls. This is a subject where I can use any help I can get. Enter MoveQuest (http://www.movequest.com), a spinoff of the MapQuest site (http://www.mapquest.com). It combines MapQuest's geographical data, sometimes klutzily, with services offered by other companies at other Web sites. For instance, you get moving-expense estimates and cost-of-living comparisons from the Homebuyer's Fair site (http://homefair.com/home), insurance help from Allstate (http:// www.allstate.com) and financing information from Countrywide Home Loans (http://www.countrywide.com). MoveQuest can also generate a calendar of to-do reminders, starting 2 1/2 months before moving day. (Sample event: "Arrange ISP service.") When I gave it a moving date of Oct. 1, it scolded me in user-manual English: "Your schedule is [sic] little behind. You better hurry up!!"
