Since so many of our users have pets, we felt that connecting them with these pet care services would be of great value to them.
New York (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
Through this special relationship, individuals who are looking for apartments or using moving services through Rent.com, an eBay company, and need pet care services will be referred to Petsitting.com, which in turn will connect them with several trusted pet care providers in the area. As a result, both companies are looking to help the moving process go a little more smoothly for people.
“Moving can be a very stressful experience, especially if you have pets to worry about,” said Jared Katz, Vice President of Sales for Petsitting.com. “By working closely with Rent.com, we will be able to help people find top-quality pet care providers without having to look through the phone book and worry about if the provider they are choosing is trustworthy.”
The referrals to Petsitting.com will be made through Rent.com’s Moving Center, which connects people with moving companies across the United States. While they are there, users can now also find pet sitters, dog walkers, boarders, groomers, and more. In addition, Petsitting.com will be actively marketing Rent.com’s “Pet Friendly” rentals, which gives pet owners the opportunity to find apartments that allow different types of pets.
Once on Petsitting.com, users can fill out a simple online form, and soon after they will be contacted via phone or email by several of the company’s trusted pet care providers. Each will offer pricing, references and all of the other information necessary regarding their services, at which point users can request more information, evaluate their options and hire a professional service at their sole discretion.
“We’re always looking for ways to make the moving and renting process easier for our users,” said Peggy Abkemeier-Alford, President of Rent.com. “Since so many of our users have pets, we felt that connecting them with these pet care services would be of great value to them.”
