If you need your AC hauled up from the basement, hiring out the heavy lifting via a tasker app is just fine. But if you're moving, you might want a pro. Enter Ghostruck, the first app connecting you professional, insured movers by utilizing their empty or partially filled trucks.

One-quarter of moving trucks on the road today are completely empty and almost half (48 percent) have extra room. By filling this empty space in existing professional moving trucks, Ghostruck enhances the industry at large, maximizing efficiency and keeping prices down.

From a sofa delivery or to a full apartment move, you answer a few questions about the job and are quoted a fixed rate. There's also a "make it disappear" option for donating or discarding stuff you no longer want.

The app launches today in 13 cities (Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Austin, Miami, Washington, D.C./Arlington, and Boston) on Android and iOS.
