Meet Handled, Tech-Driven, Concierge-Led Moving and Home Services App

Backed by the biggest names in the moving industry, an app-based concierge service offers a brand-new, tech-driven — and personalized — way to move and manage your home.

ST. LOUIS, MO — Born from disruptive DNA and empowered by the biggest names in the business, Handled was founded in 2019 by self-professed “data nerd” Seth Waite. Backed by powerhouses Mayflower Transit and United Van Lines, Handled developed and launched a proprietary, app-based platform that simplifies and streamlines the process of booking moving, storage and home services — affordably, quickly and at a guaranteed price.

Unlike the traditional industry model requiring customers to request a quote, wait for a call-back and schedule an in-home appointment before ever discussing cost and scheduling, Handled’s data-driven moving and home services app eliminates the need for appointments and in-person visits. Supported by decades of moving expertise, Handled harnesses the power of disruptive technologies — including machine learning and artificial intelligence — to rethink and retool the customer experience, with no hidden fees and no commissioned salespeople. Lending peace of mind, Handled’s top-rated service providers are all individually background checked and customer-rated for quality.

Tapping into its national network of highly skilled, trained and vetted home service professionals, Handled curates turnkey moving, packing, storage, and junk removal services — all with guaranteed, instant pricing. Serving as a personal concierge, Handled coordinates with crews throughout the customer journey, delivering five-star experiences and helping new houses, apartments, and condos — not to mention student dorms — look, and feel, like home.

Handled's seamless, app-based platform lets customers:

  • Create an automatic, digital inventory of an entire home, using a smartphone

  • Book moving and home services free of in-person visits by simply entering a zip code
  • Request custom services or choose from pre-arranged moving and storage packages
  • Receive instant, guaranteed pricing prior to booking moves and home services
  • Book entirely online, scheduling moves via Handled’s delivery calendar
  • Reserve now and pay later, with no upfront payment required
  • Reschedule or cancel up to 24 hours before moves
  • Work with a dedicated, local concierge throughout the process

“We ferry our customers’ journey so they have worry-free, easy and entirely transparent moving and home services experiences — every single time,” said Seth Waite, president and CEO of Handled. “

Currently, Handled operates in 100-plus cities. Additional locations are coming soon.
