Business Description

The Company was created in 2012 and is a website that operates all over the USA. With the Company’s trademark in the moving industry, it has created and published enduring moving tips and educational information that are still popular today. The Company became involved with different staff, which offered to help a mover’s business in the United States of America. They have become instrumental in educating movers and customers alike and first time moving ventures as well. In 2015, the Company took this thriving online business to new heights. They launched the first arbitration program that a mover can receive in 10 minutes online and were the first to feature a custom moving tariff. Their aim is to inform consumers on their rights as well as to inform them on the proper practices of moving companies in the U.S.A. The website designs are revolutionary for the time, borrowing elements from movers’ needs and emphasizing an ethical endorsement of high-quality moving service from the constraints of consumers’ needs. Moving companies agreed to come together to help make some changes to end this painful and unsympathetic process and they encourage users to express their feedback so that all parties can improve the services. The goal is to become a revered icon known for educating simple movers with sophisticated needs paired with great tools.

Property Information

Facilities:

This business is currently home-based and can be operated from any place in the world since it is a web-based business. The owner is able to manage the website from anywhere with an internet connection.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The website is currently held back by the owner’s ability to commit time to the Company. The first 6 months’ profits are in line with last year, but a bit higher and with less expense. Growth could be attainable with a new operator that understood the moving industry and could devote the hours to securing more sales leads. There is much room to grow in several different areas; the main objective is to continue to develop the core business, which is arbitration and tariffs while monetizing on the ability to sell leads to the moving industry.

Competition:

There is not much competition in this specific area, as stated by the owner.

Reason for selling:

The owner has several businesses and is involved in the construction business. His knowledge in the moving and storage business has greatly helped, but after several years of developing this site, he reached a decision to sell and move on.
