As the internet industry continues to boom in China, it is easy to foresee more businesses and startups engaging in online to offline (O2O) services. The O2O business concept has yet to be fully maximized in the market, and jumping into the wave right now is not a bad idea. Beijing-based startup, iBanke, is looking to provide an online to offline solution for people who need to find home movers.
iBanke basically serves as an agent in helping families to find home-movers. The process is rather simple. Users are only required to take pictures of the items they wish to move, and send them to iBanke. The startup will then liaise with home-movers and send a quotation to the user based on the scale of the project. After which, the home-mover will then communicate directly with the user if the latter agrees to the quotation.
The idea is cool, and this service would be definitely helpful for people in big cities. Of course, there are plenty of home-mover services out there, but many people are confused as to which are the best or most credible. Having someone else doing the selection work could save a lot of time and worry for many people.
The website is still in beta, and I’m sure that the team will be making changes to improve it as they embark on a mission to make a mark in the O2O market. Right now, the site is pretty much just an unappealing “I want to move house” button. But If you are moving any time soon, you might want to consider making use of iBanke.
