Who are we?

Founded in 2013 with the aim to provide software solutions to the removals industry, we have connected over 40,000 customers with 100’s of our trusted removal partners, turning what used to take days into just minutes.

We initially developed which is Europe’s leading price comparison for all moving related services. In March 2017 we launched gobuzzsurvey which provides removal professionals with an efficient method of carrying out remote surveys through live video chat.

It’s a really exciting time to be joining our team in our buzzing Soho office. We’re building the business fast so it’s a great place to learn quickly alongside a fun, energetic team.
