“We’re gathering the best movers in each region, committing them to an exact price model and streamlining the moving experience for consumers where they spend a bulk of their time already - online,” said Sharone ben-Harosh, founder of Unpakt.

One of life’s most unpleasant tasks – planning, shopping for and executing a move to a new home – becomes far easier today as Unpakt launches a one-of-a-kind platform that digitizes and simplifies everything but the moving truck.
Created by moving industry veterans, Unpakt provides consumers with an unrivaled level of control and service, including:
1. Organization: Consumers easily create an online inventory of their household, enabling a much smoother move and more accurate upfront pricing
2. Comparative Pricing & Profiling: The ability to compare side-by-side pricing and services from trusted moving companies
3. Fixed Rates: Every Unpakt moving company member adopts the exact price model, which uses a complex but straightforward formula to provide a guaranteed price. The formula combines the inventory list, the services required and the moving date selected to create a real-time complete quote from each available moving company.
4. Accountability: Each Unpakt moving company member has been pre-screened and must qualify for membership in Unpakt; their licenses, insurances and customer reviews are readily available online for consumer review. Unpakt also ensures customer satisfaction and will resolve any disputes on behalf of the consumer.
Prior to Unpakt, planning a move typically took days of phone calls, repetitive conversations, and the unease of wondering whether one was being overcharged. Unpakt provides every consumer the ability to inventory their home, immediately compare moving prices and be assured that they are getting the best deal.
“We’re gathering the best movers in each region, committing them to an exact price model and streamlining the moving experience for consumers where they spend a bulk of their time already - online,” said Sharone ben-Harosh, founder of Unpakt. “The entire Unpakt experience condenses the moving process – planning, inventory and choosing a moving company – from several days into an hour or less.”
Additional Unpakt services include the ability to hire movers to pack or unpack one’s possessions, request custom packing containers for technology or fine art or have a moving professional visit your home to conduct an in-person inventory of furniture and other possessions.
Pushing the Industry Towards Exact Pricing
The ability to review a client’s household inventory and quantify the move is an integral part of the Unpakt service. The formula for calculating the service was perfected over time by Sharone ben-Harosh beginning with FlatRate Moving®, which was founded in 1991.
By aggregating movers onto the Unpakt platform, Sharone 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 pricing that cannot change unless a client changes their inventory.
Membership Pays Off for Movers
All moving companies appearing on the Unpakt platform are pre-screened by the Unpakt team. Licenses, insurance and previous user feedback are all taken into consideration before they are accepted for Unpakt membership. In return for their commitment to offer exact pricing, moving companies are handed booked, paid moving jobs without having to engage a customer, saving hundred of dollars in advertising and sales expenses per job.
“In addition to the benefits Unpakt offers to consumers, we’re also empowering the moving industry to actively grow their business and connect with today’s clientele who are using the Internet to make purchasing decisions and plan their moves,” ben-Harosh concluded.
