The Corkd team works with a near singular focus to help people save on products and services by bridging existing information gaps. Corkd focuses on sectors where it is not possible to simply compare pricing due to things like delivery costs, urgency (emergency services charge premiums), weight limits, equipment size vs. competition and countless other factors.
The Ballpark Estimator is the first such tool designed to provide an immediate cost range for an area that can then be adjusted by volume (size of house, number of rooms, etc.). The Ballpark Estimator is the culmination of thousands of hours of work and includes data from over 200,000 business to consumer interactions. We're working on more great tools as well but continue to roll out the Ballpark Estimator to more industries every month.
Working for the family business, Access All, Cory Taylor quickly learned the power of using the internet for large and medium sized organizations to access people looking for services at the moment of intent. What he realized however that this leap forward in communications often did not streamline the process for the end consumer in many categories. Cory also realized that no other company was piecing together the necessary information to provide both the typical 'how-to' and the 'how-much' information for services that people may only use a few times in their entire life. Corkd is on a mission to solve this issue for complicated service industries.
In early 2018 Corkd helped its 10 millionth customer find a local pro.
We grew our list of partners to more than 500 local pros.
In 2013 the company was re-branded as CORKD to signify the power that consumers can find within the service to save time, energy and money.
By 2012 over 400,000 consumers and businesses have connected on our platform.
By 2008 Access All shifted focus to using technology to simplify the pricing of services for consumers.
