iBuyer Model Offerpad Partners with Bellhops to Streamline Moving

Two nontraditional, fast-growing companies align to simplify the experience of moving

Since its inception, Offerpad has consistently been the only iBuyer to offer customers the option to move at no additional expense. It’s one of the many benefits the comes with choosing the direct home buyer over the traditional real estate process. And now that feature has become more streamlined through a partnership with Bellhops Moving.

Among the thousands of moving companies in the United States, Offerpad chose to align with Bellhops because of its innovative business model and customer-focused strategy. The two companies began working together in Atlanta and Charlotte, and based on that successful collaboration decided to expand their partnership to include all current Offerpad markets.


“This partnership aligns two industry leaders that will support customers during one of the most stressful periods in their lives,” said Offerpad’s CEO, Brian Bair. “Offerpad and Bellhops are both customer-centric companies that combine technology and people to provide a service above the status quo. Our customers trust us with the largest financial asset in their name, and we don’t take that lightly—which is why we only partner with companies that have a proven track record and support our core values.”

Due to its one-of-a-kind labor platform, which not only streamlines the move-day process but also ensures customers are matched with the most-qualified movers and drivers in their area, Bellhops has become the fastest-growing company in the $18B moving industry. The company recently announced its expansion in Tampa and Orlando, which creates a full alignment with Offerpad’s footprint.

“We are laser-focused on refining the experience of moving with technology and talented people,” said Bellhops’ CEO, Luke Marklin. “This partnership with Offerpad is an extension of our mission to provide more people a stress-free journey to their new home.”

Offerpad has revolutionized the way people buy and sell their homes. The process is simple: Customers visit to request an offer on their property, which they then receive within 24 hours. Upon the acceptance of its offer, the company manages home renovations, the inspection process, and the paperwork—all while providing customers with a comfortable level of control. It even allows them to select their closing date and extends the option of a free move within a 50-mile radius. Customers who take advantage of the free move are then paired with a reputable third-party moving company in their area. Offerpad’s new partnership with Bellhops will now streamline the process for the seller, as both companies will work in parallel to provide the best experience from the moment a customer requests a purchase offer to the day they move into their new home.
