A lot of people ask us how we got our start. The owner, Serg, has this story:
Early in 2010, a friend asked if I would help him pick up some large items that he had purchased from Craigs List. We both have small cars and needed to borrow a truck.
We started off early in the morning, figuring we’d be done by noon. First, we needed to get the truck lined up. Off we went to the U-Haul truck rental. Of course the one in Lake Forest didn’t have the smaller truck that we wanted — only expensive larger models. So we headed down to San Juan Capistrano and were able to rent the truck. It was already 9.
Our first pick up was in Dana Point, our second in Rancho Santa Margarita, and the third was in Anaheim. Then we needed to drop off the items in Mission Viejo. Pretty much a full tour of Orange County! Each stop took anywhere from a half hour to 45 minutes, after inspecting the furniture, talking to the owners, and getting everything securely loaded.
After travel time, returning the truck, and hassling with the security deposit, it was 4 o’clock. By the time we got home, it was nearly 5! The truck rental cost, including mileage fees, ended up over $120. Imagine the expense if we’d had an accident or damaged the furniture.
After that experience, it was pretty clear that an important service was missing from the CraigsList process.
I bought a van and started the CraigsMoverOC.com business. It’s been a lot of fun, to be honest. We are regular people trying to save other people money.
