Think of a ridesharing app, and many of them immediately strikes your mind. Uber, Lyft, Postmates or Doordash. These apps are renowned for fast, reliable ride services at any time of the day or night. Their presence has given a tough time to local buses and taxis. Thus, most of us use these apps and trust them for commuting from one place to another.
There is, however, one question that strikes in one’s mind, “Can Ride-Sharing Service be used for moving furniture?”
The precise and straightforward answer to this question is “No”.
Furniture is one of the bulkiest of all the things in our houses and moving it much of a task. As Ride-Sharing Service’s drivers are independent contractors, they usually ignore the rides that have a potential risk to their earnings. The driver may decline your ride because of several reasons — the most important among them being the insurance risk and potential risk of damage to the vehicle. Any scratching, ripping off the interior etc. can lead to losses which no driver will compromise on.
Additionally, many customers assume that large Ride-Sharing Vehicles can help with moving their furniture. However, they forget that these ridesharing apps are for carrying people from one location to another, and they do not carry cargo for delivery. Even if you somehow manage to book a ride, there are very few chances for you to get the average-sized furniture in the car.
Moreover, loading and unloading require spacious space and physical labour. A regular Ride-Sharing Service driver may not be someone who can quickly load and unload the furniture in his normal to average spaced car. Thus, it won’t be wrong to say that Ride-Sharing Services are for passengers, not property. Most vehicles in these services will not be large enough to carry the furniture in the first place.
So, if you are planning to move to another place, you will have to look for alternative options. These alternatives will provide you facility for moving your furniture. Today, some applications are specifically dedicated to giving delivery, pick-up and moving services.
One such application is FlasHOLR, an On-Demand Mobile App for moving and delivery purposes.

The other functional aspect of this app is the FlasHOLR customer. It enables the customers to get the help from the drivers from towing, pick-ups and moving of any appliances. Thus, by entering their desired location on the Google map, the customer asks for help in exchange for money.
