Moveline, if you haven’t heard yet, is a service that lets you take a video of your belongings or FaceTime with a Moveline consultant to take a detailed inventory of everything you own. This ensures that your moving rates, whether they come from DIY moving van companies or big-time dolly-wielding moving companies, are accurate the first time you get the quote.
For anyone who’s moved, you know how much of a relief it is to get through all of moving day without hearing “You didn’t tell me the stairs were this steep — that’ll be another $250 an hour.”
Moveline takes inventory of your stuff and not only sends that info to moving companies, but helps you decide which method is best, based on how much stuff you have and how much help you might have from friends, family, etc. They also let you know which items might be particularly expensive to move, like a fancy chandelier or heavy armoire.
The newly launched iPhone app lets you conduct all of this inventory recording from the comfort of your iPhone. You can either set up a FaceTime appointment, try to call in on FaceTime immediately, or shoot a video with room labels.
From there, Moveline will send you your inventory on the desktop dashboard. Founder Kelly Eidson explained that file transfer for mobile video has improved vastly from what it was, making mobile the most comfortable tool for shooting video and sharing it.
Moveline is a web startup that makes it easy for people who are preparing for a long-distance move to quickly gather the information they need to save money and make smart moving decisions. We’re building a web application that makes it simple for people to learn about their options for moving their stuff and answer important questions like “how much will it cost to hire a moving company?” and “what size truck do I need?”
