Lugg, the startup that helps people with small moves, requested via an Uber-like mobile app, is this week expanding its reach into additional markets. While originally available in the San Francisco Bay Area, the company says it will now be available in Silicon Valley, from Palo Alto to Mountain View and down to San Jose. In addition, Lugg notes that all of the Costcos and Crate & Barrels in the Bay Area are pushing customers to Lugg as a means of helping them get their larger purchases home more quickly.
Questions for discussion:
1. List a few potential setbacks or downfalls of Lugg’s service.
2. What kind of security measures could be used to deter ineffective or negatives uses of Recharge?
