After seeing the devastating effects that flooding, fires, and other disasters have caused his friends and family, Springville real estate broker Justin Dockstader had an idea. Dockstader started Blue Kangaroo Packoutz, a company that specializes in restoring items for residential and commercial clients in central and northern Utah.

“I saw how little the local community prepared and protected the items in their homes. These damages were caused from man-made disasters such as a leaky roof, to bigger problems from storm-induced damages,” Dockstader said. “I was drawn to the concept because it is a niche with tons of opportunities.”

Employing a team of local experts, the company treats and restores a variety of home items — including artwork, documents, upholstery, clothing, photos, furniture, and electronics — to their original condition.

Blue Kangaroo Packoutz will send a representative to the customer who will assess and pack any items needing restoration.  Boxed items are registered in inventory with a photo of the item and a specific barcode, making it easy to track and update clients on the status of their items.

Pieces are securely stored until the cleaning and restoration process begins. Once restored, the company will transport your items and deliver them back to their original location. The brand is owned by the BELFOR Franchise Group.

“We are eager to bring our compassion for people and quality solutions to the community during some of their most difficult and uncertain times,” Dockstader said.

The company hopes to live by their motto, “We Care About What We Carry,” embodying the values of communication, high-quality service, caring support and complete transparency.

“Our franchisees are with you every step of the way to ensure that people’s contents and valuables are restored,” said Tim Fagan, President of Blue Kangaroo Packoutz.
