New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Relocating to a new home in the city that the Farmer's Almanac listed as having one of the Top 10 climates in the United States just got easier, thanks to Unpakt, a new online service that is completely revolutionizing the way people move.
Unpakt, a radically new platform that digitizes and simplifies the entire moving experience from start to finish, went live today in San Diego, making the eighth largest city in the country the 32nd city in which the service is available. Unpakt plans to expand throughout the entire nation by the end of 2012.
Long known for its temperate climate, coupled with pristine beaches and a recent boom in the healthcare and biotechnology industries, San Diego remains one of the most desirable cities in which to live. With the arrival of Unpakt, San Diegans now have the ability to efficiently plan, compare moving prices and purchase moving services with guaranteed, exact pricing and no hourly rates—all from the comfort of their own home or office.
“One of life’s most stressful tasks, moving has now become much easier for residents of the San Diego metropolitan area,” said Sharone Ben-Harosh, founder of Unpakt. “The top movers in the Greater San Diego area have come together to offer their services through a simple-to-use online format. As a result, the entire moving experience, which once took several days, can now be completed within an hour—or less.”
Some of the highly qualified movers who have joined the Unpakt team in San Diego include Across Town Movers, Gorilla Moving, Sav On Moving and Manpower Movers, with more expected to join within the new few weeks.
Prior to Unpakt making its debut in San Diego, people looking to move typically spent hours on the phone with different movers, put up with repetitive conversations and had few options for determining if their mover was reputable or if the prices quoted to them were fair. Unpakt provides every customer with the ability to inventory the items in their home, immediately compare moving prices and companies, and offers them the assurance that they are getting the best deal possible.
Customers can compare movers with confidence as all moving companies appearing on the Unpakt platform are pre-screened by the Unpakt team. Licenses, insurance and previous online user reviews are all taken into consideration before moving companies are accepted for Unpakt membership.
Additional Unpakt services include the ability to hire movers to pack or unpack one’s belongings, request custom packing containers for technology equipment or fine art, or have a moving professional visit one’s home to conduct an in-person inventory of furniture and other possessions.
The ability to review a client’s household inventory and quantify the move is an integral part of the Unpakt experience. The formula for calculating the service was perfected over time by Sharone Ben-Harosh, beginning with FlatRate Moving®, founded in 1991. By aggregating movers onto the Unpakt platform, Ben-Harosh and his team are steadily shifting the industry away from the unreliable hourly-rate model and replacing it with fixed rates and exact moving pricing that cannot change unless a client changes their inventory.
