Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2016
PLOWZ & MOWZ, the first on-demand home maintenance company that helps people find service providers to mow their lawns, remove leaves and plow snow, today announces its partnership with Science Inc., the company that builds and invests in disruptive startups.
PLOWZ & MOWZ states that 85 million homeowners in the US need lawn and driveway care, but have not had the ability to book quickly on-demand. The vast majority of these homeowners (65%) have never hired a professional landscaper, primarily due to the cost and inconvenience of signing a yearly contract. The PLOWZ & MOWZ app takes care of some of the most time-consuming and dreaded home exterior chores by providing an instant quote and dispatching a 5-star rated landscaper from the user’s area.
“Our ultimate vision is to help homeowners eliminate the difficulties that can come with outsourcing their exterior home care. Their most dreaded chores are lawn mowing, snow shoveling and leaf removal. And today, too many contractors are plagued by route inefficiencies and impossible workflow during high-demand seasons,” said Andrew Englander, co-founder at PLOWZ & MOWZ.
PLOWZ & MOWZ makes booking home maintenance services simple and fast, from anywhere, at anytime. Users simply enter their home address, a description of their lawn or driveway, and then tap their smartphone to request service. The user is in complete control of when the landscaper arrives and only pays for what is needed, it is available on iOS and Android. Once homeowners place an order, the app’s proprietary algorithm and GPS technology pairs them with a highly rated and insured landscaper. The customer receives real-time ETA updates and photos of the competed job through the app.
“Our app offers a seamless solution for both parties – booking through the app makes finding a service provider simple and contractors can accept a job that works within their established route structure,” said Wills Mahoney, co-founder at PLOWZ & MOWZ. “Our proprietary algorithm helps homeowners get the exact quote within seconds.”
“The $50 billion exterior home care industry is highly fragmented and PLOWZ & MOWZ is the first truly disruptive leader for on-demand booking. Science focuses on marketplaces, commerce, and mobile companies who innovate on the status quo and bring outdated industries into the modern digital age. We immediately recognized the high-demand for a seamless solution for home maintenance, and couldn’t ignore all the glowing customer reviews of PLOWZ & MOWZ,” said Michael Jones, CEO of Science Inc. “Science was very impressed with the product PLOWZ & MOWZ has developed with the resources they had, and are excited to bolster the team and company with additional investment that can be used to expand their product to their current markets and eventually reach millions of homeowners nationwide.”
