Here is some great new news about a necessary service that is designed to benefit worthy people. Addison-based PICKUP has created a Smartphone app that offers pickup trucks on-demand.

PICKUP provides consumers and businesses that need a pickup truck and a helping hand to move their goods immediate availability and many of the locals drivers are first responders or military servicemen. “The core of the service is the caliber of drivers,” Brenda Stoner, founder and CEO said.

“The company built a comprehensive screening and qualification processes to ensure drivers meet rigorous culture and capability requirements. We know that people who drive pickups are generally ‘good guys.’ That’s why we are taking it one step further and seeking active military, veterans and firefighters to ensure we have the absolute best guys around.” This is the best idea I have seen in a long time.
