If you are familiar with Uber, you will automatically think of a fleet of drivers using their own cars to take people where they need to go. Uber is dispatched by an app that allows users to hail a car to their location. Uber tried out something new in two cities over the weekend.

Uber tied up with Bellhops for a service called UberMovers and provided free and professional moving services for up to half an hour to students in Atlanta between 9am and 2pm Saturday. Nashville residents also had the chance to get the same service on Saturday and Sunday.

 

New Uber users could get service free while existing Uber users were charged by the half hour. Those who took advantage of the service had a pair of Bellhops movers show up and received some free Uber gear as well. There is no word on if this moving service will become a permanent part of Uber's offerings.
