Since our last post we've been hard at work building our first tool that gets us closer to instant and seamless deliveries for online shopping.
Since we're in the midst of the "hottest ever" heatwave and our optimism and adrenaline is running at an all time high due to England's world cup performance, we thought it would be a great time to launch.
What are we launching?
Great question. It's a tool on Facebook Messenger that allows you to send through online product info from your favourite retailers and have it all delivered in as little as an hour.
How does it work?
- Find Carryr in Facebook Messenger, click here or scan the messenger code below and tap "Get Started"
When you're doing some online shopping, take note of the product page and send to us via messenger when prompted - just make sure the retailer has a store in Cambridge.
Provide us with product requirements (e.g. size, quantity and colour variation).
You'll be asked if you want to add any more products, just tap "Yes, please!" or "No, that's it!", you can choose different products from multiple retailers there's no restrictions.
Share your phone number so that we can contact you if needed. Usually we will update you via messenger though.
Share your delivery location (we may contact you on arrival for confirmation of the address).
If any of the items are unavailable we will contact you, otherwise, we'll be with you shortly.
- On arrival for delivery, we'll securely take full payment of the products and the delivery fee of £4.99 so make sure to have your card ready. You will be emailed a copy of the receipt too!
And... that's it, we're done! Usually this would have taken a couple of days, instead, we've done this all in as little as an hour.
(As we are delivering stock from your local store, we can only operate within the store's opening times - the mission is be 24/7)
Who's this for?
We're currently only available in Cambridge with other locations around the UK to come shortly. This service is to be used for fashion retailers. Operating via bike is a lot quicker to get around the city, however, it does restrict us from delivering on the outside of the city. So, at the moment we can only offer delivery to Cambridge addresses/locations - we will be working on expanding our zones later 😃
