Caring Transitions Franchise Business Launches New Site

Senior relocation, estate liquidation and downsizing franchise business Caring Transitions just launched CTBIDS.com, its re-designed Online Estate Sale auction website. The technology behind the website allows guests to search for estate sale items on their mobile devices or personal computers and bid on those items in their area and nationwide. The goal of the new website is to provide a place for people's treasured and everyday items to find new homes, and it offers visitors a user-friendly interface with high-resolution photos, detailed descriptions, videos and live updates about the items available.

On the new website, browsers and buyers can go through the hundreds of items being uploaded by the brand's franchisees across the country. All franchisees are Certified Relocation and Transition Specialists who are bonded and insured, and all auction items are handled with care. Website visitors can easily browse several estate sales online, whether those sales are nearby or across the country. Local pick-up is also available, which eliminates shipping costs and provides buyers with a safe environment to pick items up from.

Both PayPal and credit cards are accepted on the CTBIDS website, which strives to provide buyers with a quick, easy and user-friendly way to find the items they are searching for. Brand President Ray Fabik has said that this is the direction the brand will be moving in, keeping pace with technological trends to bring the best experience to guests who are using the auction website.

Started in 2006, Caring Transitions is the first franchise business concept to focus on senior transition and relocation services. Offering over 200 locations across the country, its franchisees provide clients with supportive transition, right-sizing, auction and moving services. Part of Entrepreneur's "Franchise 500" list of the top franchise opportunities, this brand still has more franchise opportunities available in several markets with an initial investment range of $58,912 to $82,712.
