KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time to help ease stress and hassle for holiday shoppers, the Bungii mobile app is launching in the Kansas City metro area. Reliable, simple and inexpensive, Bungii lets anyone request a truck to help haul and deliver their stuff that doesn't fit in most vehicles.
Friends with trucks and store delivery services are in high demand when prices drop and Christmas trees need chopping. While most items can be packed into, or on top of cars, the top Black Friday items such as furniture and large TVs require truck beds. Delivery from the store can be difficult to schedule and that friend with a truck isn't always available at a moment's notice.
"Bungii was designed to alleviate the 'I need a truck' moments we all have at one point or another," said Ben Jackson, Bungii co-founder. "Whether people are at a big box store, nursery, estate sale, furniture store or picking something up they bought online, their items can't always fit in a car."
Bungii is available for free in the App Store and online at bungii.com. Bungii charges $1 per minute and $1 per mile with a $30 minimum. The average cost of a delivery within the Kansas City metro is around $40.
The Bungii app is similar to ride-sharing platforms featuring instant trip estimates, real-time GPS tracking and payment processing for an easy, user-friendly experience. Users download and open the app, select their destination and request a local Bungii truck. The nearest driver confirms their request.
"From day one, a priority has been complete, in-app transparency for the customer," said Harrison Proffitt, Bungii co-founder. "Requesting a Bungii only involves a few taps, and customers can see exactly where their driver is during the whole trip. Hauling your stuff has never been easier."
