New York, NY, August 20, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Unpakt, a first of its kind price comparison site to help consumers identify reputable moving companies and book their moves online, today announced the launch of two new features designed to simplify the end-to-end process of moving homes: Quick Quotes and the Moving Cost Calculator widget.
Quick Quotes allows customers to receive price quotes from available moving companies in 60 seconds or less, a process that historically took days to complete. From there, customers are provided with the cost of a move plan and the option to secure a guaranteed price from the pre-screened moving company of their choice.
“Our Quick Quotes tool was designed to further shorten and streamline the process of booking a move online,” said Sharone Ben-Harosh, CEO and founder of Unpakt. “My goal in founding Unpakt was to bring transparency to the moving industry while taking the hassle out of the booking process for consumers. In addition to our Guaranteed Prices feature, we’re confident that Quick Quotes and the Moving Cost Calculator provide more convenience for consumers.”
The Moving Cost Calculator is a widget that can be embedded into third party sites, offering instant moving prices based on the user’s basic moving information. After entering their home size and moving address, users receive three quick price estimates from moving companies in their area without leaving the original website. Prices are based on the average inventory and boxes needed for a similar home size as the user selected, providing moving estimates from Unpakt on any site.
With the launch of the Moving Cost Calculator, the widget is now available on several partner websites such as Apartable, DMV.org, AptDeco and more, becoming a preferred resource and vendor for relocation services.
With more than 500 moving companies now available through the platform and growing, Unpakt continues to roll out in new cities across the country, the latest including: Denver, Colorado; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Raleigh, North Carolina; Cheyenne, Wyoming; and Davenport, Iowa.
Unpakt is a price comparison website for consumers searching for a moving company. Offering a platform where consumers have access to pre-screened moving companies, consumer reviews and exact price quotes rather than estimates, Unpakt brings transparency to an industry that has previously been known for its uncertainty.
Created by entrepreneur Sharone Ben-Harosh, the founder of FlatRate Moving, Unpakt has launched in major cities across the country, with plans to have 3,000 moving companies in the top 200 US cities and 2,000 moving companies in the top 100 international cities. Unpakt is THE next big thing in the moving industry.
