BuildMyMove™ Secures Growth Funding From Five Elms Capital

Investment Positions Innovative Interstate Transport Tool BuildMyMove to Fund Expansion

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - January 13, 2011) - BuildMyMove™ (www.buildmymove.com), the first provider of instant, binding online moving quotes for full service interstate moves, announces the closing of its first round of institutional financing. Led by Five Elms Capital (www.fiveelms.com), the infusion of $1.5 million will allow BuildMyMove to ramp sales and further refine its platform.

BuildMyMove has built a real-time quoting engine for interstate moves. Consumers receive flat rate, instant moving quotes based on the type and size of the move, with no hidden fees. BuildMyMove utilizes a nationwide network of local, professional movers to provide moving services at a much lower cost than most national moving companies.

BuildMyMove CEO Dan Cunningham said, "We have the only online full service moving quoting engine on the Internet that prepares an instant, accurate quote for the consumer. We immediately connect consumers to our moving affiliates, providing services and support across the country. We look forward to expanding our traffic partner and agent networks, which will allow us to connect consumers to great movers across the country."

Fred Coulson, Managing Partner of Five Elms Capital, said he sees great potential in BuildMyMove. "We like to back teams that use technology to provide transparency, efficiency and cost savings to consumers," said Coulson. "It's a simple, elegant solution to a complex task. We're excited to be a part of such a scalable opportunity."
