How Does It Work
The real questions you want answered are: “What is the catch?”; “Is this too good
to be true”; “If it’s FREE, how does Move For Free get paid?” and “How do I qualify?”
MoveForFREE.com is an Apartment Locating Company that offers free apartment finding.
Move For Free is not a moving company. The company earns a commission when we help
(refer) a client find an apartment and that client indicates that Move For Free sent
them (referred them), and, the client signs a lease and moves into the apartment
community. Apartment communities complete a Guest Card on the initial visit for
each person that visits the apartment. There is a section on the Guest Card for
‘referral source’ or ‘sent by’ and this section, completed by the apartment staff,
must have Move For Free listed.
Apartment Communities pay Move For Free a referral commission based on a real estate
transaction (giving a client real property information on the apartment that leads
them to lease). Referral commissions can only be paid to Licensed Real Estate Companies
and MoveForFREE.com is licensed by the Real Estate Commission.
Once we receive verification from the new apartment community that the customer
was referred by Move For Free, then, the customer qualifies for a free local move
or a cash voucher (conditions and restrictions apply see the
FAQ’s and Terms and Conditions). If the apartment's commission falls below the minimum required for the free move or cash voucher, Moveforfree.com will offer less free moving
or a reduced cash voucher to communities that don't meet the minimum guidelines as long as qualifications are met.
Our moving companies require a move time minimum of 2 1/2 hours and customers qualifying for less free hours will pay the difference (ex. if you qualify for 1 1/2 hours free, then, you pay for 1 hour to meet minimum 2 1/2 hours). By using Moveforfree.com, you understand the consequences of the aforementioned guidelines.
If a customer qualifies for a move, Move For Free then makes arrangements with a Moving
Company for the client to be moved. Move For Free only contracts with moving companies
who meet our qualifications as well as those that are properly insured and registered
with the Department of Transportation or Department of Motor Vehicles.
If a customer requests a Cash Voucher (essentially a rebate), then, Move For Free
will send out a check to the client once Move For Free receives payment from the Apartment
Community. This can take anywhere from 30 to 90+ days depending on when the Apartment
Community pays the referral commission. Some communities wait to pay referral commissions
until a client has paid 3 full months of rent.
In order to qualify for our services, you must have registered with MoveForFREE.com
prior to visiting any apartments and Move For Free must help you find your new apartment.
Move For Free must be able to register you as our customer (referral) with apartment
communities prior to you visiting the apartment. If you visit an apartment community
prior to registering with MoveForFREE.com or prior to Move For Free pre-registering
you at an apartment community, then, you will not qualify for the free move or cash
Anyone who refers a client to Move For Free that we help find an apartment, will be
sent a $50 Gift Card of their choice (as long as it can be easily purchased online)
upon Move For Free receiving payment. There is not a limit to the number of gift cards
one can receive.
