Thinking about moving yourself because you just don’t want the hassle? Are you going to be moving any time in the next year? Meet Zootly, a new company taking the moving world by storm.
Zootly is a new on-demand moving service that helps you find a moving truck near you, especially handy if you’re moving at the last minute. Once you’ve found the truck, you can book it and be assured that a licensed, insured and experienced mover with at least two trained movers will help you get your things moved with the least amount of fuss and muss possible. It’s all done through their mobile app, which also lets you track where the truck is through GPS. Want to know when your truck will be there on either end of the move? You can get an ETA through the app as well.
Zootly contracts with partner moving companies, who they then vet to make sure they meet Zootly’s high standards. All partner movers are booked through Zootly, which is licensed and insured themselves; it definitely gives you a little breathing room to take the worry out of an already stressful situation.
One of the biggest advantages of using Zootly to book a move is that, rather than needing at least a week before they can move you, Zootly can get it done on very short notice. Their software is the most up to date and they are constantly reviewing their partner movers to make sure quality doesn’t slip.
George Colwell, CEO at Zootly, said, “We take the pain away from selecting a moving company. Traditionally, you can do all your own due diligence, look at reviews and even interview three or four separate companies, getting an estimate from each, and it’s still a guessing game as to whether you’ll get what you need at the price you’ve agreed to.” He adds, “Whether you’re looking for a mover to help with a business move or you’re moving your home, we take that worry out of the mix. We handle the investigation and coordination. You just have to worry about getting everything ready to move and then unpacked at the other end.”
Zootly was first launched in New York and so far, the results have been very positive. “We have taken all the early feedback from our customers and applied that feedback to the Zootly app, bringing an even stronger user experience to our customers,” Colwell said.
The only issue with Zootly is that currently, it’s only available within a 100-mile radius of New York City, but Colwell said they plan on adding another 13 states within the next six to eight months, making a “U” around the US, from New York, south to the Carolinas, west through Texas to California and then up north to Oregon and Washington. Their goal is to have 30-percent of the country covered by that time.
The Zootly app is free for download on the App Store and on Google Play. For more information on Zootly, you can visit their webpage as well.
