Hi, I’m Aidan Rushby, CEO of Movebubble.I lead an exceptional team of talented, highly motivated people who are passionate about changing the face of the rental market, and making the experience of moving home better for everyone involved.The idea for Movebubble was born out of my own poor experiences as a renter, and the insights I gained while working in the lettings sector. Recognising that customers at both ends of the rental transaction weren’t coming close to getting the value they deserve, I began seeking a solution in which renters would be put first.At movebubble our mission is to make moving better for the worlds renters.
