Best Furniture Delivery
You’re at an estate sale and just scored the deal-of-the-century on a mid-mod credenza. You’re elated. Until you realize it won’t fit in your car and you have no way of getting your prize home. Enter PockitShip, an app that allows you to move and deliver large items on short notice by electronically hailing licensed box-truck delivery drivers who come to you. (You can book service 48 hours in advance, or pay an added fee for same-day or next-day deliveries.) Junk removal? They do that, too. Founded in 2015 by entrepreneurs Steve Senkus and Garrett O’Shea, the Falls Church-based start-up serves the greater Baltimore and D.C. metro areas. Now the company has its sights set on expanding to other cities.
