When two brothers decided to start a company helping senior citizens move, they had no idea their vision would one day include residential and commercial moving services, junk removal, and storage. Established in the greater Columbus, Ohio, area, Outside the Box Moving uses the GigSmart Get Workers app to find and hire extra hands when the need arises.
Beyond servicing the most common moving requests, Outside the Box Moving also contracts with new residential developments to unload and install apartment appliances. The duties of the job are straightforward: meet at the apartment building, unload a truck (or trucks) full of new, wrapped appliances, and move them into individual apartments. Because the unpacking and moving requests happen irregularly, it is challenging for Outside the Box Moving to hire, retain, and schedule full-time staffers to complete every job request.
GigSmart has sourced over 300 applicants for 25 moving gigs posted by Outside the Box Moving. In addition, candidates have applied to work Outside the Box Moving gigs in as little as 17 seconds, making the connection between Outside the Box Moving and potential workers almost instant.
Outside the Box Moving found GigSmart, a staffing solution that instantly connected them with individuals interested in their moving jobs. When the demand for extra manpower arises, Outside the Box Moving uses the Get Workers app to create free gig posts from which they can review and hire temporary Workers.
“I told my friends, ‘You need to check out GigSmart, it’s a great way to get extra hands to help!’ Now, I don’t have to worry about hiring people full-time, the app allows me to hire when I need to.”
