Unpakt, a NYC-based dynamic online marketplace for consumers to compare reputable moving companies and instantly book their moves online, raised $3m in funding.
The name of the backers remained undisclosed.
The company, which also said it achieved gross sales of over $1m, intends to use the funds to enable international moves originating in major U.S. markets, launch a truck rental comparison and booking marketplace for “D.I.Y.” self-moves, and develop a comparison and scheduling platform for small parcel shipments.
Launched in July 2012 by Sharone Ben-Harosh, Unpakt provides consumers with tools to create a home inventory, compare exact prices and previous user reviews from local, pre-screened moving companies, and then book their services online.
