Dallas News follows up with Brenda Stoner, CEO of PICKUP. Since its launch in 2014, the ride-sharing app to haul stuff has gained traction in the DFW area. “The reception to the PICKUP service has been overwhelming in two key areas,” Stoner told Dallas News. “First, we knew that we had to provide easy-to-use technology, then simply kill it at the curb.” PICKUP does extensive background checks on their employees, including driver records. Most of PICKUP’s drivers, called good guy drivers, are firefighters and military veterans. To add further ease to customers using the app, PICKUP also insures up to $20,000 for moving items. “Customers are thrilled with the exceptional value of immediate access to these good guy resources at a fair price,” Stoner continues. Currently limited to North Texas, PICKUP looks to expand to other cities in the near future.
