PICKUP Launches Instant Delivery Service in Houston

Expansion to Houston fueled by significant consumer and business demand

HOUSTON, TX (May 23, 2016) – PICKUP®, the Instant Delivery™ service featuring Good Guys and their pickup trucks, today announces its service is now available in Houston, Texas. The company expanded its service area beyond Dallas/Ft. Worth to accommodate growing demand from consumers and retailers.

“PICKUP is very excited to offer trusted, instant delivery in Houston,” said Brenda Stoner, Chief Good Guy, PICKUP. “Everyone needs help moving large items, whether it’s from a retail showroom floor to their home, to enable their business, or to solve specific moving problems.  PICKUP’s Good Guys are now available to help customers in greater Houston.”

PICKUP leverages trusted resources like military veterans, firefighters and other off-duty public servants and their pickup trucks to transport items for customers. The company regularly moves furniture, mattresses, appliances, home improvement supplies, landscaping materials, baby nursery items, electronics, Christmas trees, boxes to storage and more.  The app-enabled moving service will transport almost anything that can fit in the bed of a pickup truck.

“Think of us as go-to resource when you need to move large stuff,” commented Stoner. “Consumers and businesses want items delivered when they buy them. Faster than same day delivery, PICKUP’s Instant Delivery is a great solution for the last fast mile from store or distribution center to customer. We fill that gap for businesses and retailers who often lose sales when people discover their item cannot be delivered same day.”

The expansion to Houston comes on the heels of its recent strategic investment announcement from Ross Perot, Jr., Anurag Jain and Mike Wetzer. The funding was intended for geographic expansion into new markets.

PICKUP™ is an Instant Delivery service featuring Good Guys and their pickup trucks. No more renting trucks for moving or hauling large items, or asking to borrow a friend’s pickup truck. PICKUP brings this experience directly to your mobile device. PICKUP Good Guys are trust verified and up to $20,000 cargo insurance is included. Most Good Guys are off-duty firemen, military and veterans. For more information please visit www.pickupnow.com or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
