About Us .
Imagine a world where moving and delivery are as simple and accessible as ordering a pizza. It is from this vision that the concept of MoveMate was conceived. An innovative platform which seamlessly connects the supply and demand of needs related to the moving/delivery industry and friendly and efficient Mates to satisfy these needs are the ingredients that allowed MoveMate to see the light of day! We are a platform that connects you with local movers to make moving and last-mile delivery a positive experience for you.
It all began on the benches of McGill University. Founder Lucas Francioli was still a student at this time. Stories of moves that had gone wrong flooded the corridors: extra fees charged at the last minute or a mover who arrived more than 2 hours late (or not at all). One day, Lucas decided to rent a truck to help his peers move. Word got out and in less than 10 days, he had made over $12,000 in revenue! From his experiences travelling abroad, Lucas found that finding a team of efficient movers, that did not come with surprises at checkout, seemed to be a weak point in many cities.
Not one to back down from a challenge, Lucas set out to revolutionize the moving and delivery service industry. Thus, MoveMate was born. It was when taking an Uber that Lucas met Will, a retired high-level speed skating competitor and car enthusiast turned private driver. After assessing the main weaknesses of current moving companies, they decided to team up and make MoveMate, the solution to moving and delivery.
Since then, MoveMate has come a long way and is constantly innovating in order to offer the best services to the people of Montreal. MoveMate Business directly supports furniture stores by supplying them with high-performance delivery services while the MoveMate Academy trains our Mates though custom lessons and allows them to develop their entrepreneurial skills
It is with big dreams in mind and a smile on its face that MoveMate continues to write its history.
MoveMate is honoured to be a part of the Founder’s Institute Select Portfolio.
