Phlatbed is basically the Uber for moving stuff.

Customers post their moving request, set up the pickup and drop-off location, including pictures, and then post it. Drivers respond with their "bids", the best rated drivers command higher fees. Phlatbed holds payment until the delivery is completed and accepted by the customer.
It’s the only one that lets you name your price, and drivers respond. Available for both the iPhone and Android Smartphones.

Phlatbed collets and “holds” payment until the delivery is completed by the driver.
Phlatbed Operates primarily in New England but rapidly expanding nationwide including Texas, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Colorado, MD, California, Seattle, and Pennsylvania.

BUDDYTRUK
Founded
: 2013
Headquarters: Santa Monica, California
Status: Private Independent Company
Industry Sector: Application Software
BuddyTruk attempts to make moving and hauling a “social experience”. Considering moving is never a fun experience, this may be a challenge. The app connects consumers who need to move an item(s) with a local person with a truck (a “buddy”). Buddies can earn up to $40/hour. The consumer pays the “Buddy” through Buddytruk.
Buddytruk operates in Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, and Orange County.

MOVED
Founded
: 2016
Headquarters: New York, New York
Status: Private Independent Company
Industry Sector: Application Software
Moved provides a personal moving assistant to gather moving quotes, find a storage unit, update your address, sell your things, compare moving company quotes, book movers, find storage, order supplies, and much more.
The challenge here of course, it’s not on-demand, and it’s more or less a concierge service. So if availability and time are a factor, Moved is not an option.

Cheers!

I remember writing an article about Moved a long time ago. Finding out what I did about them, it seems pretty helpful!
