Project Description

ABOUT

FleetMover.com is an online classified site for commercial vehicles & trailers.  The goal of the site is to connect potential buyers with a dealership who has their desired vehicle or trailer for sale.  

FleetMover offers tools & functionalities not seen in competitor classified sites, making it appealing to its two target markets: buyers and sellers.

PROJECT SCOPE

Like many of our projects, FleetMover came to us as an idea: What if there was a cars.com for the commercial vehicle space?  The owners of FleetMover needed a company to do the research and determine if launching the a commercial vehicle classified website was a good idea.  If deemed viable, the owners needed a company to develop & launch the site.

STRATEGY

We spent 6 months researching the market and developing a proposal which was as in depth as a formal business plan.  With key recruiting, a thoughtfully executed design and an attentiveness to the industry’s pain points, we built FleetMover a web application that was highly attuned to the experience of its’ users; buyers and sellers.

Today, FleetMover is the 9th largest commercial vehicle classified site, next to Ebay Motors.
