The founders of MovingWaldo, Philippe Tardif-Michaud and Guillaume Lahoud, have experienced the stresses of moving—finding places to live, packing their things, making sure everything gets to their destinations.
“We know that there's a lot of things in a to-do list when you're moving, and a lot of that comes with making financial decisions that can be important. It comes with a lot of changes in your life as well,” Phillipe says. They've each had to go through the strain of relocating their homes multiple times, and wanted to find a way to make it easier—even just a little bit.
Founded in 2017 in Montreal, Quebec, MovingWaldo began as a simple platform to automate changes of address, a service unavailable in Canada at that time. Since then, they’ve built a network of trusted providers in the markets they serve. This network includes moving, van, and storage companies, plus it offers help with switching utilities and comparing new internet plans, home insurance, and security systems.
“What we have is this digital platform that helps users get organized and find assistance through our technology content and human support,” says Philippe. “And along the way, we'll be able to help them not only save time, but also save money by being able to compare different vendors near them.” Now, MovingWaldo is a one-stop shop digital concierge for moving.
