I’m moving in two weeks… because I’m getting a puppy in three weeks (and my current landlord does not approve). This will be my third move of under 2 miles in the past five years, so I expect it to go pretty smoothly. However, I realize that for a lot of people moving is a huge deal and causes a ton of stress. The physical move is usually a big part of it, but it’s all the little things like forwarding your mail and setting up new utilities that drive you crazy. Managing those things would be a lot easier if the actual move was mostly taken care of for you. That’s what Moveline offers. They’re a New York, NY based startup that is offering “a radically easier way to move.” A radically easier move is still a huge pain in the butt, but I’m not sure there will ever be a startup that can change that.
The core idea behind Moveline is that they own the relationship with the movers. Here’s how it works. Basically you take a video of your stuff as it is in your current place. Moveline sends back an inventory of everything and then provides a number of quotes based on your moving needs. You pick the mover, and then your “Move Captain” handles as many of the details as you want (from scheduling elevator time to getting questions answered by the moving company). Moveline generates revenue by charging moving companies a referral fee–they describe it as working just like most of the travel sites that people use. We already have movers that we’ve used a few times, so I won’t be trying Moveline, but I’d definitely try it otherwise. If you like the idea of helping people move more easily, take a look at Moveline’s Jobs page. The best position for a new or recent grad is Inside Hustle. It’s a biz dev/sales type position, and it looks like an amazing opportunity.
