Cable Mover “Make Our Move App” + $25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

If you’ve ever been in a situation where you had to move, I’m sure you can agree that it can be both challenging and time-consuming. Having to organize, condense, and pack up what appears to be a lifetime of belongings can be quite over-whelming.

Even though our family has moved (almost) too many times to count, I still worry and have heart palpitations every time I think about packing up our home. Moving for me is like I’m planning two simultaneous moves: relocating to a new home and moving out of our current location. It’s quite a bit to handle.

As schools let out and the weather gets warmer, a change in seasons is obviously upon us. Along with the transition from spring to summer, this time of year signals the start of grilling season, of course, moving season.

To help celebrate moving season, CableMover developed a new Facebook app “Make Our Move!”, the app focuses on a fictitious couple that is preparing for moving season and they need your help to choose between two iconic American cities!  You can vote for the city of your choice for a chance to win instant and weekly prizes as well as a grand prize of a 32” smart HDTV!
