There are a lot of new logistics and technology innovations in the transportation industry that can benefit the moving industry
Fort Smith, AR (Vocus) March 5, 2010
New moving company MoveBuilder lets customers choose from moving options to build a personalized move that meets their needs and budget. Utilizing commercial transportation systems takes moving high tech.
National moving company MoveBuilder™ enables customers to 'build' a personalized move. Customers can choose the exact moving services they want, need and can afford. In addition to a full choice of moving options, MoveBuilder integrates modern technology and logistics from the commercial shipping industry. This creates flexibility and commercial-grade efficiency, making MoveBuilder unique in the world of movers. Has moving evolved?
For those who haven't moved in a while, moving has changed. There are more moving options than ever, but one thing remains constant. Budget determines moving services. For those with smaller moving budgets, it is usually a rental truck. For those who can afford it, full-service moving options are desirable. An even higher level of service can be found with 'white glove' moving services where household items are put in their place and even set-up or connected if necessary. In between are various do-it-yourself options where packing and loading are handled by the individual and the driving or shipping is handled professionally. Then there are auxiliary services within the industry such as crating and storage.
MoveBuilder offers hybrid moving options. By combining a menu of traditional moving services with modern transportation and innovative logistics, MoveBuilder is the latest evolution of the moving company.
"There are a lot of new logistics and technology innovations in the transportation industry that can benefit the moving industry," says Andrew Schweizer, director of MoveBuilder. "We want to fully utilize these in an array of customer-centric moving services. Everyone has a budget and everyone wants choices; MoveBuilder offers many solutions in one moving company."
So how does this translate to an 'evolution' in moving?
Imagine a single female who needs to move across country for a new job starting in just two weeks. Call her Jane. After moving, Jane will be staying in a rental unit until she finds a home. Jane would like to save some money by doing the packing and loading herself. However, doing it completely alone and driving a rental truck cross-country is out of the question. Jane also knows she can't handle the heavy furniture and has no idea what to do with that plasma TV.
With MoveBuilder, Jane could choose ReloCube® moving options for what she needs initially, then pack and load that portion herself. The faster transit times would get it there before the new job starts and guaranteed service would ensure arrival on the Thursday before. She could have it delivered right to the door of her rental unit. She could select loading and unloading services for the larger furniture to be shipped separately. Skipping guaranteed service options on this portion would save money. Monthly storage would hold it until she finds a more permanent home. She could also choose custom crating services for the plasma TV and opt for full-value protection coverage.
Jane will have 'built' a move that meets her needs, but costs less than a standard full-service move. She will have been spared the additional chore of arranging for a separate storage facility and rental truck. Choosing MoveBuilder would enable Jane to drive her car to her new home rather than towing it behind a rental truck, saving more money. Jane could track her shipment on her smart phone while she travels to make sure everything is on schedule. All of this would be coordinated by her personal Move Manager with MoveBuilder. Billing would be simplified to one moving company. Meanwhile, Jane's belongings would be shipped through a transportation network utilizing the best technology and professionals from the commercial shipping industry.
This scenario demonstrates a more modern way of moving. The process could be redesigned to fit different scenarios and priorities. A retiring couple and a young family have different moving needs. One may want white-glove full-service moving while another just needs to save money. MoveBuilder brings together the full range of moving services and moving options.
By utilizing respected commercial transportation providers, MoveBuilder offers partial assistance or a full-service move with coast-to-coast transit in just 2-5 days. With other full-service movers, such service can generally take 4-6 weeks. MoveBuilder charges are based on shipment size rather than weight or hours, as with other movers. So MoveBuilder makes it possible to determine a price in advance of the move, eliminating unexpected moving costs. There is no deposit or up-front payment. MoveBuilder also works with a network of experienced movers who are pre-screened and approved by the company.
Relocation doesn't have to be a chore. With MoveBuilder it's is simple. Take a dreaded necessity then modernize it and make it easier. It's moving – evolved. Visit MoveBuilder.com for more information.
