Moving is hard, and that’s when you know who your true friends are! The usual pizza and ice cream incentive simply doesn’t cut it anymore.

In the same token, we have all come to place more value on our time, even as retailers are increasingly concerned about the cost of holding post-sale inventory.

In many cases, you have to wait for days…..and you get your item based on someone else’s schedule and availability. In other cases, you miss out on a good deal because you couldn’t get the item home to where you want it, when you want it.

We've been talking about the Uber for moving apps for a while. Dolly, Buddytruk, and a few notables do this. However, somewhere in the ondemand ecosystem, a little known startup has been the closest to the Uber for moving model on a large scale but in stealth mode. Phlatbed — an on demand moving and delivery platform and mobile application that connects you to local drivers who can help you move stuff. Simply post your items and select a driver, and your item gets where you want it within the hour! It is ideal for people who are looking for an inexpensive way to deliver items on the go!

  Uber for moving and delivery on-demand    

The On-demand model enables consumers quickly make decisions on who and which moving company to use. Consumers check reviews, availability indexes and pricing. A consumer can quickly see available options and make quick decisions. Does this mean time is the new currency? Arguably, yes. Time is our most valuable asset.

Many services have evolved into on-demand models such as on-demand moving or on-demand ride hailing. This means the smartphone has cemented it’s place as the consumers digital assistant.

The on-demand model is the next big thing in moving. Innovative moving companies that embrace this model will remain ahead of the pack. Those who fail to adapt, will face difficult options.

Therefore, it is no longer enough to buy a truck, slap your logo in it, complete the minimum paperwork, then sit back and wait for the phone to ring.

Cheers!

      I believe you can. I've only used them to move some items, but there is an option for junk removal when posting a job.

    I have used phlatbed fairly recently. compared to others it was simple and straightforward. Used it a few times now and no issues at all. It's exactly that...on-demand deliveries and for moving or junk stuff. Dolly is good too, but only used it once with my boyfriends weekend move.  Another poster said the apps are big in certain parts depending on where you are...I've found that to be true even for Uber.
