The Dallas-based ride-sharing app for stuff, PICKUP, has arrived in Houston. Founded in 2014 by Brenda Stoner, PICKUP has made significant strides to enter the mover marketplace by providing affordable and easily accessible services. “PICKUP is very excited to offer trusted, instant delivery in Houston,” Stoner tells a recent press release. Most deliveries average about $70 and are insured up to $20,000 should damages occur during delivery. “We fill that gap for businesses and retailers who often lose sales when people discover their item cannot be delivered same day,” Stoner continues. Available through Google Play and iTunes, or through online scheduling atPickupnow.com, PICKUP connects Good Guy Drivers, who are mostly firefighters, military veterans, and police officers, with customers who need to move items at affordable prices. Check out Chron.com coverage and USA Today’s piece on PICKUP’s recent expansion to Huston.
