NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zootly, LLC (“Zootly), a technology company transforming the moving and logistics industry, announced today that it has successfully closed a financing round adding another USD$2.5 million to the company. This financing round included well-respected institutional and high net worth investors.
“We are very pleased with how our initial launch is going in the NYC metro area and are looking forward to expanding our reach to other markets in the U.S. and Canada next year,” said George Colwell, Zootly’s Chief Executive Officer. “Residential and commercial customers alike have appreciated the efficiency that booking a move through the Zootly app provides. Having easy access to moving partners that they know have been vetted with the highest standards gives them peace of mind when it comes to their moves. Our moving partners also understand the benefit of working with Zootly as they obtain jobs via the Zootly app dramatically reducing their customer acquisition, marketing and sales costs.”
Traditional moving services require a multi-hour booking reserved days, weeks and even months in advance. By contrast, Zootly, launched in 2015, deploys vehicles and staff on short notice via the Zootly app. Residential or commercial customers can then track movers and trucks from their phones to get instant updates. Businesses benefit from the on-demand services, which allow them to complete business moves or deliver their products or equipment efficiently without the costly overhead of owning trucks and employing delivery crews. Zootly works by aggregating underutilized moving vehicles and moving teams through its licensed, insured, experienced and customer service-oriented partners via the Zootly app. Zootly moves within a 100-mile radius of Manhattan with plans to expand to other cities in 2016.
