Moving sucks. Especially if you have to jettison a load of furniture the next time you swap states or switch apartments. AptDeco, just graduating from YC, is aiming to fix that — via its p2p secondhand furniture marketplace which bolts on a fully insured delivery service so buyers don’t have to worry about the logistics of hiring a truck themselves, or finding a company to do the pick-up for them.
Taking care of delivery also means sellers can get to sell their couch or bed without having to expose themselves to the risk and inconvenience of random strangers coming inside their home to check the furniture out and carry it away. And of course AptDeco takes care of the payment, with transactions processed via its website, so there’s no cash changing hands at the pick up point, and no risk of any last minute haggling over the price-tag.
