An estimated 43 million Americans relocate each year. To make the stressful situation easier, a new Miami company, MooVooZ, has developed an online movers marketplace that allows consumers to search, compare and book movers with instant fixed price quotes.
Today MooVooZ announced its mobile application for Android, Snap N Move, allowing customers the option to book their move on the go from their mobile devices.
"Snap N Move is an extension of our web app, MooVooZ, with added features" said Joel Burlin, CEO of MooVooZ. "It lets users book their move from their mobile device instead of a laptop or desktop."
In an interview last month, Burlin expained that MooVooZ can be especially helpful for short, local moves, which are on the upswing. Whether it is a move down the hall, across town, or beyond, it's easy to get instant quotes because users snap photo and video of the items they wish to move, choose a pickup and drop off address, and a list of movers, prices, ratings, and reviews pops up. There's a lot to like about the ransparency, as the moving industry historically has drawn a large share of complaints at Better Business Bureaus, consumer complaint divisions and the like.
Burlin spent a majority of the last decade in the moving industry while owning and operating companies throughout the US. Founded in 2013, MooVooZ provides consumers with fully serviced, licensed movers that are pre-qualified and insured, he said. MooVooZ screens all of its partnering moving companies to ensure customers are receiving top quality movers, he said.
MooVooZ is well-timed, too, with a resurgence in real estate in many parts of the country, but particularly in South Florida, where people are flocking to the urban core and more people are renting and moving more often. For these reasons and others, Burlin opted to launch Snap N Move locally first. MooVooZ is working on its iPhone app.
"The hassle of moving is universal so the solution to an easy move should also be universal," said Jiblin George, CTO of MooVooz. Users can download the app for free on Google Play under "MooVooZ" or on www.moovooz.com/snapandmove.
