I invite you to take a look at Zootly, a tech start-up in the moving and delivery industries which have both sat remarkably unchanged for so long. Zootly’s fresh take on resourcing will hugely disrupt both industries and relieve a bit of the stress at the same time.
Zootly is modernizing the moving industry by introducing shared economy thinking and mobilizing booking and tracking. It’s simple. Zootly has built the largest community of movers and moving companies. They are accredited and certified and Zootly has rigorously vetted all of them. Anyone – business or individual – who needs to hire a mover, downloads the Zootly app and gets connected to qualified, professional movers 24×7.
Movers love Zootly because the on-demand service and quick connections help them reduce their underutilized resources (typically moving companies will have upwards of 50% under-utilization at any time). Movers can focus on their business and not worry about marketing or haggling over costs.
Customers win because they are getting trusted professionals (no more moving horror stories about sketchy movers and moving companies), pre-set costs and they can use the Zootly app to track the trucks and their stuff. Confidence in moving! Finally!
Zootly was founded in NYC by a successful entrepreneur (www.zootly.com) and has teams in the US and Canada. They have announced their intent to expand this year and to investigate taking the company public. They have closed successful funding rounds and are considering another round soon.
It’s time for old-school industries like moving to move (pun intended!) into this millennium. Check out the app on Android or iOS
