Modo Gives you More Freedom to Redecorate!

Guest post written by Modo Ambassador Charmaine Niebergall


I had hummed and hawed about redecorating my apartment because I knew it would take a few different car trips. But, with access to Modo’s diverse fleet of cars, trucks, and cargo vans I was finally able to make my redecorating dreams come true!

First up, I had to get my grandmother’s vintage furniture refinished. I’ve always wanted to get it done, and now with my Modo membership, I was finally able to. I booked the cargo van just a few blocks away from home, and loaded it up with my gran’s vintage dresser and side table. Luckily, I found an awesome local spot that would do it for a great price, and dropped it off.

The next day I shopped around to find my new couch. My old one had served me well, but it was too big for my apartment, and I decided it was time to downsize. I picked up the 2019 Red Kia Soul from Modo which I’ve named Red HotWheels because it’s heated seats and steering wheel! Headed to The Brick, where I was able to find my dream couch. $100 delivery fee from The Brick?! No thanks!

Modo would only cost me about $10 to pick up the couch myself (1/10th the price!). The plans were all coming together…

Shortly after, I went to Walmart for some odds and ends, again, thanks to Modo. Two weeks later it was time to pick up my new-to-me dresser, side table, and couch. But, I also had to find a new home for my old couch. Turns out my friend Avro, also a Modo member, was looking for a couch just like my old one! So we booked the cargo van, picked up the dresser and dropped it at home. From there, we loaded the cargo van with the old couch which we dropped at Avro’s house and finally picked up my new couch to take home. 

Modo gave me the freedom to make a variety of trips during different times of the day and week, while using their diverse fleet. At the end, it still costed me less than having everything delivered!

And you know what? It also felt really satisfying being able to make this all happen on my own, independently, with a little help from Modo!
