Unable to collect reviews on-the-go

Moving to a new home or office is stressful enough -- choosing a company to help you should be easy. That’s why Sebastian Moving and More knew they needed to strengthen its online presence to become the obvious choice. Even though their customers are pleased with their services, the company had no social proof of this since they lacked reviews on critical sites like Google and Facebook.

Before Birdeye, Sebastian Moving had 10 movers and 6 trucks. Their limited staff was busy hauling furniture between homes and buildings, and simply did’t have the time to follow-up with each customer after a service to ask for a review. In order to improve SEO and get new customers, Sebastian Moving sought a way to ask each customer at every location for a review after a service or sale -- without adding work to their day.
