NEW YORK, NY, August 25, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Unpakt, a comparison pricing site and online booking tool for consumers searching for a moving company, is launching in Anchorage, Alaska to help simplify the moving process for the area's 300,000 residents. ---
Recently named one of the "10 Best Cities for New Grads" by Kiplinger's Personal Finance, the Anchorage job market is growing as more and more young adults move to the city for work. According to a Redshift Research survey, "The Reality of Moving," commissioned by Unpakt, 68% of consumers conduct an internet search when looking for a moving company. Now Unpakt brings new and old area residents the first online marketplace for moving services, helping consumers minimize the time it takes to find and book a professional moving company online.
Featured in The New York Times, TechCrunch, Forbes, The Huffington Post and other leading publications, Unpakt is a website that streamlines the entire process of finding and booking a reputable moving company to under an hour. Anchorage residents can now use Unpakt to create a home inventory, compare competitive prices from local moving companies, and then book their move with the click of a button.
Similar to what sites such as Kayak or Expedia have done for the travel industry, Unpakt is revolutionizing the moving industry. Offering price standardization and transparency, Unpakt provides exact prices from pre-screened Anchorage movers as well as consumer reviews from previous Unpakt users, Yelp, Citysearch and Google. The site displays exact costs, providing Anchorage residents with one guaranteed price for their specific inventory and conditions, instead of quoted hourly or weight-based estimates.
Beyond the breadth of benefits to consumers, the Unpakt business model helps Anchorage moving companies grow their businesses through access to marketing tools and increased visibility. Licenses, registrations, years in business, association memberships, previous user feedback and more are reviewed before a mover is invited to join Unpakt. Unpakt's Anchorage mover partners include:
• Ace Delivery
• Alison's Relocations, Inc.
"Anchorage has become an increasingly popular destination for new college graduates and young professionals," said Sharone Ben-Harosh, founder of Unpakt. "With Unpakt, Anchorage's new residents can minimize the time it takes to find a reputable moving company and maximize the time they spend getting settled in and preparing for work."
Unpakt customers may also opt for additional services including the ability to hire a chosen mover to pack or unpack one's belongings, request custom packing containers for antiques or fine art, the option to have a moving professional from multiple companies visit your home to conduct an in-home consultation of possessions, and more.
Created by entrepreneur Sharone Ben-Harosh, the founder of FlatRate Moving , Unpakt has launched in major cities across the country, with plans to expand its database to 3,000 movers in the top 200 U.S. cities and 2,000 movers in the top 100 international cities.
