MOVE Guides is a UK-based site that aims to make the move from one country to another as simple as possible.
Relocating from one city to another is challenging enough within a single country, but when the move is international, that difficulty is compounded considerably. Enter MOVE Guides, a UK-based site that aims to make the process easier. Now in beta, MOVE Guides is “democratizing global relocation,” in the company’s own words. Offering expert local city guides, a global network of reliable shipping suppliers and transparent pricing, the site offers each user a customized “MOVE Hub” for planning their move, communicating with suppliers and storing information on services booked. Links to social networks, meanwhile, give users an immediate view of acquaintances in their destination city as well as an easy way to have their questions answered by friends. MOVE Guides are available for both individuals and companies, but it currently charges no fees itself; rather, users pay only for the services they book. As of its October launch into public beta, MOVE Guides’s end-to-end service focuses primarily on moves to London, but service for the US and Asia are scheduled to launch within the next year, The Next Web reports. Meanwhile, the company is also recruiting global suppliers to join its network. Global-minded entrepreneurs: one to get involved in? Spotted by: Murray Orange
