 New Inventory Items


What’s been added?

We’ve added tons of new items to the Inventory Page to make Move Plans more accurate than ever. Check out the full list at the bottom of this post.

 

Make sure to review your Handling Fees

Handling Fees are used to cover special care or materials required for a specific item.   We’ve added default Handling Fees for each of the new items we added, so make sure to review and update as needed.

 

Where can I update my Handling Fees?

From your Mover Dashboard, click on the Pricing Tab then click on the light blue sub-heading that says “Inventory”. You’ll see a list of every item from our inventory and it’s corresponding Handing Fee (if applicable).

Remember, this fee is applied automatically each time a customer adds that item.

Your Unpakt Summer Checklist

May 26th, 2016

Mover Portal
Make sure your Unpakt profile is ready to handle any jobs that come your way.

I.   Booked up? Zero out your Availability Calendar

Most movers are already booked up for the peak summer move dates.  Make sure to zero out any days that you’re unavailable.

Log in to your Mover Dashboard, click on your Availability tab, and click on each date to adjust the number of trucks available.

Need to change every day at once?  Just click “Prefill Availability”.

 

II.   Update your Summer Pricing

Labor is more expensive this time of year.  Use your balancing rate tool (on the Availability tab) to increase your rates for high-demand days like June 30th.  Need help?  Click here

 

III.   Make time for Truck Maintenance

Get your trucks in gear! Don’t let a broken-down truck lead to a no-show.  Take the time to have your trucks inspected and tuned-up.


 

We’ve rolled out some great new updates!

Unpakt is making some big changes, and it’s thanks to you.  We’re excited to announce some great new updates based on your suggestions.  Have any more ideas?  Click here to let us know.

New Tier Pricing

You asked for a better way to price your jobs based on inventory size.  Our new tier pricing lets you adjust your rates based on the shipment size.

 

New Long Distance Pricing Tools

You can now add an extra fee to the price of any long distance job based on the destination.  Make sure to update your delivery window and a dedicated truck indicator as well.

 

Long Carry Fee Policy Change

Customers book through Unpakt for guaranteed prices.  To limit Move Day surprises, we’ve eliminated Long Carry Fees for distances less than 150′.  If you wish to charge for shorter distances, contact us.

 

New Payment Options

We’re happy to announce that we’ve made two additional options available for moving companies who need faster payment.
