Unpakt Launches Two New Tools to Make Moving Painless (in New Cities, Too)


Moving can be a real hassle, for a lot of reasons. Unpakt is looking to simplify that process and help you keep your sanity with a few new features: Quick Quotes and the Moving Cost Calculator widget.

Designed to help with the end-to-end process of moving, Unpakt’s two new tools give families in over 280 cities more control over their moving process.  Here’s a rundown of Unpakt’s new features:

  • Quick Quotes lets you get a price quote from available moving companies in less than a minute. Once you have your quotes, you then have the option to secure a guaranteed price from the (prescreened) moving company of their choice.
  • The Moving Cost Calculator is embedded into third party sites and offers instant quotes based on your basic moving info. Enter your home’s size and your moving address, and you’ll receive three quick price estimates — without having to leave that site. To get a look at what the Moving Cost Calculator looks like, head over to ApartableDMV.org or AptDeco today.
“My goal in founding Unpakt was to bring transparency to the moving industry while taking the hassle out of the booking process for consumers,”  said Sharone Ben-Harosh, CEO and founder of Unpakt. “In addition to our Guaranteed Prices feature, we’re confident that Quick Quotes and the Moving Cost Calculator provide more convenience for consumers.”

Unpakt is continuing to roll out to new cities across the country. The latest round includes Denver, CO, Santa Fe, NM, Raleigh, NC, Cheyenne, WY and Davenport, IA.
