Over the past few months, the COVID-19 health crisis has changed most of our daily lives. Forced to stay at home and limit interactions, consumption habits have also been turned upside down. This startup seized the opportunity to respond to consumers current concerns including the inability to buy furniture and appliances without considerable delivery delays during the pandemic. As a young, Montreal-based company whose primary objective has been to offer a new and simplified moving solution, MoveMate is now seeing these services grow thanks to its new, innovative delivery system developed to meet customer expectations.
Moving is no piece of cake. In fact, moves are a major source of stress for the vast majority of households, and it was out of a desire to accompany Montrealers in this important stage of their lives that MoveMate’s solution was born. In under two minutes, customers can book their move or delivery on MoveMate’s simple and intuitive booking platform, and a trained and qualified Mate will be on their way. In even better news, no longer do you need to contact your friends or family to find someone who would be willing to help you, nor waste your time with companies that charge astronomical rates.
Delivery is the new way to consume
The negative impact of the health crisis has been felt in different ways. Quebecers have reduced in-person visits to small businesses, and with shipment delays among some of the largest retailers, consumers have shifted to second hand purchases through [ZH2] marketplaces. As a result, MoveMate has set up a new service which offers individuals the possibility of having large items ranging from furniture to appliances delivered. Have you been eyeing a couch on Kijiji or a dishwasher in a second-hand store, but don’t have the means to pick up your new purchase? MoveMate has now made it possible for your items to be delivered directly to your home within only one day’s time!
This Montreal startup is also developing a new concept: Ikea Shopping. Customers will be able to order the furniture of their choice on the IKEA website and Mates will take care of both shopping for it in-store and delivering it to their home.
“Innovation and the development of services adapted to emerging needs are our priority,” said Lucas Francioli, CEO.
Transparent and equipped with personalized customer service, MoveMate is continuously improving its platform to support changing consumer preferences, allowing them to have what they want, when they want, through its simple, efficient service accessible to all.
MoveMate’s mandate is to provide innovative moving and delivery services that are simple and efficient. By matching their customers with a Mate that has the tools, the manpower, and the vehicle adapted to their needs, MoveMate takes care of packing and transporting goods to a customer’s new residence, as well as transporting and delivering any bulky items purchased online or in-store.
The company was founded by Lucas Francioli, an alumnus of McGill University. Lucas identified major inefficiencies in the archaic moving and delivery industry and set out to provide a simple and straightforward solution that makes these services as easy as ordering a pizza. In under two minutes, customers can book their move or delivery on MoveMate’s simple and intuitive booking platform, and a trained and qualified Mate will be on their way!
