CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee – September 22, 2022 – Today, Bellhop announces its newest partnership with SOLD.com, a leading online real estate marketplace and educational resource provider. Bellhop’s moving services will be promoted to home buyers via SOLD.com’s web portal and through its concierge service. Additionally, SOLD.com’s network of more than 40,000 agents will be empowered to offer Bellhop’s moving services to their respective clientele nationwide.
“Bellhop leverages both technology and best-in-class customer service to deliver a simple, stress-free, and transparent moving experience,” said Harrison Stevens, VP of Marketing for Bellhop. “By providing a free and unbiased service that allows consumers to compare dozens of home buying and selling options, SOLD.com shares our commitment to alleviating the headaches that are too often a part of the home transition process.”
The current real estate market requires homebuyers and sellers to be savvy about their options, which often necessitates an unconventional approach. Both Bellhop and SOLD.com are seeking to modernize their industries by applying data and technology to eliminate common pain points associated with moving and home selling, respectively.
To this end, Bellhop’s online customer dashboard streamlines the cost estimation and booking experience for customers, while assembling the best Bellhop team for the move; the Bellhop app provides a straightforward process for its workforce to find and receive job assignments. SOLD.com helps customers explore both traditional and alternative models of home buying and selling, while providing free analytics-driven recommendations. Its concierge team serves as an ongoing resource to sellers throughout the process.“SOLD.com’s mission is to simplify the stressful home buying and selling process,” said Matt Woods, Co-founder and CEO of SOLD.com. “That mission extends beyond the purchase or sale of the home itself. We are assembling the best providers to assist through all aspects of the move, including mortgage, insurance, moving services, and more. Bellhop’s uniquely simple and cost-effective service makes them the perfect moving partner to promote to our customer base and network.”
Bellhop was founded by millennials Cam Doody and Stephen Vlahos in the summer of 2011 as a simple solution for college students looking for help moving in and out of their dorms. After astronomical demand, the company quickly grew from serving just college students into a nationwide company with customers of every age and sized home. In 2013, the founders connected with Lamp Post Group for seed capital to aid national expansion, and the resources to develop the first-ever digital moving platform. To date, the company has acquired more than $50 million in venture capital from firms such as Advanced Venture Partners, Canaan Partners, Lowercase Capital, and Initialized Capital. Other investors include Silicon Valley Bank, Scott Banister, and rapper Nas. Visit bellhop.com to learn more.
