Truck-Sharing Service Bungii Plans Nationwide Expansion

Bungii

Ever needed a truck but didn’t have a friend willing to loan you theirs?

There will soon be an app for that. Kansas City-startup Bungii says it has plans to take its truck-sharing service to lots more cities in the coming year.

Like Uber, Bungii uses an app to connect people who need a truck with people who have a truck.

Got furniture to move? Send a photo of it to Bungii and truck-owners working with the service can accept your job and be on their way to you.

Founder Ben Jackson says the cost for Kansas City users is a dollar per minute and a dollar per mile, with the average cost to users being about $35. Expensive if you’re moving an entire house, but not bad if you just need to get your new couch home.

For now, Bungii is only in Kansas City; Lawrence, Kansas; and Atlanta. But the company hopes to be active in 12 cities by 2019.
