    This is so cool and so needed. I think the key will be for them to properly manage the easy cases ($200) vs the hard cases ($750) plus so customers don’t feel bad about it. I often work with people who think that their migration is going to be easy, but moving very large DBs or DBs with lots of custom tables or when you need to splice user or post tables or keep a dev site from sending emails/etc, it can get very complicated quickly.

      Hey Jason! It’s definitely going to take some work, but we think we’ve broken down cases in such a way that it should be pretty straight forward. Of course, only time will tell if that’s true, and we’ll certainly adapt as necessary!

    I couldn’t agree more on this sentence “Yes, there are a few other services, but they all suffer from one fatal flaw: automation”. Same reason that explains why people come to us when trying to migrate to WordPress (from other CMSs most of the time, so Daniel, don´t worry we are not direct competitors) even if there are “automatic” solutions that you can use for little to no money.

    Like it or not, very few things work out of the box and need no adaptation when dealing with something as complex (and as valuable) as a CMS

      Who says we’re not competitors, we will take certain migrations from other CMSs, but our focus is definitely on WP->WP migrations. Either way, thanks for the comments and best of luck to both of us!

    I’m totally excited for Migrate WP, there’s such a need for a human generated CMS migration service. With Dan Griffith’s behind this company I’m sure it’ll be nothing short of fantastic!
