Moving Made Easy

The stress and uncertainty of hiring movers has been faced head on by a newly launched app called Movepal. Offering on-demand removalists in a few simple steps, Movepal allows users to lock in a trusted removalist by entering pickup and delivery details and the size of the move. The app will then match the user to the most suitable mover. Users are able to contact their mover, track the delivery process, and make payments automatically through the platform.

App users and movers are also peer reviewed. Founder Peter Borain, an experienced operator in the removalist industry, took inspiration from ride-sharing apps to create this on-demand service. “Moving services can often be unreliable – 20 per cent of movers never actually even show up. Work is also sporadic, causing high staff turnover, and getting a removalist at short notice is almost impossible,” Borain said.

“Australians find it challenging and time-consuming to find a good mover, let alone bother with insurance for short-haul moves. Movepal is a quicker, easier, cheaper and safer solution for people who want a bit more transparency and peace of mind with their next move.”

Movepal offers a range of services, from moving an entire house to picking up a single item, such as a couch – which can be delivered to your house the same day you purchased it. Delivery for a single retail item will typically cost between $70 - $100, depending on distance, while residential moves for a two-bedroom home will average at around $300 to $500.

Movepal also enables all payments to be made online, ensuring financial transactions are tracked and recorded, eliminating the use of cash.
