This is clever, not only does it allow you to find some help but puts some much needed money into the pockets of college students.

Bellhops contracts college students for local moving help, on-demand. Serving 130+ cities with over 9000 students. $40/hr per student. Anyone used them before ?

@kwdinc i remember somethig similar yet more hilarous on Shark Tank. Forgot what they were called though..
Toni Gemayel@tonigemayel · Head of Growth @
@kwdinc I have and had a great experience. I think @bellhops has a pretty great model that could be extended outside of moving as well
@acondurache Yeah, I think it was called College Hunks Hauling Junk or something ..

@iorahul @acondurache Yep, they're a franchised, asset-based moving company. Traditional moving model.

This is awesome! Hope you guys expand to Canada soon - I know a lot of students up north itching to help out!

Thanks for the love @ProductHunt! I'm a co-founder of Bellhops, would love to answer any questions. We're based in Chattanooga, TN (home of the fastest internet in the country - 1 Gig) and are building a team of hustlers. Up to 31 at HQ now. Goal is to provide a better solution for small, local moving with an on-demand system and awesome Bellhops. 50m americans will move this year, and 3/4 are 'do-it-yourselfers'. Not bc they want to do it themselves, but because there isn't a better alternative.

@camdoody Love the idea ! Are you thinking of other verticals than local moving ? Pretty sure you could use the college students for other other on-demand services .Could be huge!
Cam DoodyMakerHiring@camdoody · Co-founder, Bellhops
@kwdinc Definitely, but we're extremely focused on the moving market right now. There is no question that we could utilize our workforce forother things, especially once we launch geo-spatial in our upcoming mobile app. Right now, we're laser focused on this market though.

@camdoody Great idea.

Very cool idea. Although I was assuming payment was going to be more in the ballpark of "cigarettes and beer" vs money, but $40/hour sounds like a steal!

@KristoferTM Haha, don't think people don't offer that to our Bellhops as tips (happens all the time)!
