7 Apps that Help you Move out of your Home

Transferring homes is an exhilarating yet a physically taxing needless to say mentally draining thing to do. The packing and unpacking of boxes, settling logistical concerns, and juggling financial requirements are enough to knock one out. Good thing, technology has caught up to alleviate the burden from everybody.


Startup companies which specialize in logistics have dominated the market. They offer affordable lipat-bahay rates which help cut down on finances without compromising the safety of transported items. Below are 7 applications and websites that offer logistics service in the Philippines.
Transportify
The logistics provider which has the widest coverage. Despite starting last 2016, Transportify caters not just to Metro Manila but to areas of Rizal, Cavite, Bulacan, and Laguna. Their rates are categorized into two: standard fare and full day fare.
A truck under standard fare starts at P2,100 and comes with a moving assistant. An additional helper will cost you P200. The starting fare is only good for the first three kilometers. Succeeding kilometers will warrant P50. If you require a larger truck for the move, you just need to add P400.
If you are in a tight budget, Transportify offers customized deals to maximize the suitable vehicle that will cater to your need. You just need to navigate the app or the website to economy class.
The app is available at Google Play Store and Apple App Store.   
Lalamove
Operating across nine cities internationally, this youngest logistics provider has started its service journey last November 2016. Catering to any place in Metro Manila, this is the most ideal provider for any transfer which will not go beyond 1,000 kgs. The largest vehicle they have on their arsenal is an L300 van. So, if it is just furniture that you are planning to move, then this guy has got your back. Not to mention that it offers the cheapest deal amongst this list. Starting at P350 for each van. Every kilometer will cost you P30 only and a P100 for every hour of service charge. While a helper will only cost you P200. What’s more is that they do same-day delivery.
The app is already available at Google Play Store and Apple App Store.   
Mober
A proudly Filipino founded a business that offers same-day delivery of anything door-to-door. Started last 2015 as a medium enterprise, this app has included to its list of service lipat-bahay. With a 24/7 customer service support, you can track real-time the status of your transported items without sweat. Mober’s service area is limited only to Metro Manila.
A four-wheeler truck is based at P3,000 and comes with one moving assistant. However, this fee is just for the first five kilometers. A P3 service fee is charged every minute. At most a 15-kilometer trip for four hours will cost as much as P3,970. Though this price varies depending on time and other factors asked by the app.

The fee for a four-wheeler truck which can carry four tons is at P3,200, while a six-wheeler truck, on the other hand, which has a carrying capacity of six tons is at P3,800. Both come with a pair of moving assistants which can aid you with the loading and unloading of your things. For additional support, you will need another P300 for it.
