New OD Household Services Mobile App Keeps Movers Connected
App provides customers with shipping quotes, access to online accounts
THOMASVILLE, North Carolina (April 16, 2013) – A new mobile app from OD Household Services allows moving customers to easily and reliably follow their shipments and connect with the company, no matter where they are.
The new app, “ODMove,” which launched today for smart phones using the Android platform, allows customers to log into their online accounts, inquire about moving estimates, track movements and read moving advice.
OD Household Services – launched in January 2012 by Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. – is a cost-effective alternative to traditional and do-it-yourself moving services, as consumers only pay for the truck space that they use and OD does the driving for them.
“Our goal in creating this app is to replicate the ease and simplicity of our regular website. Customers can book moves, trace their items and find out tips and tricks that will be helpful during the moving process,” said Chris Young, vice president, OD-Technology. “Moving is stressful, but worrying about finding information or tracking a shipment shouldn’t be. Like OD Household Services, we know this app will help ease some of the apprehension associated with moving.”
The app is available for download through Google Play. An identical app for the iPhone and the iPad is expected to launch later this year.
With OD Household Services, Old Dominion delivers the trailer, allowing consumers to pack and load their own belongings. Old Dominion then picks up the trailer and delivers it to the customer’s new address when they want it – whether across town or the country.
In addition to OD Household Services, Old Dominion’s first consumer-focused service, the company offers domestic less-than-truckload, global, logistical and drayage shipping services to points in North America, Central America, South America and the Far East.
