MONTREAL, April 29, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ – Quarantining in Montreal has been a bit easier thanks to the debut of a mobile app called Zoodbox that allows for simple, fast and affordable exchange of light goods via its on-demand delivery service. The service was founded by a team of tech savvy entrepreneurs, who say the mobile app is the first of its kind in Canada.
Zoodbox was welcomed right out of the gate by Kijiji and craigslist buyers and sellers. It is expected to be a popular delivery option for businesses, as well, who need immediate, reliable cross-town package delivery. Yet now, with COVID-19 restrictions, its use has been growing among city residents who cannot be in direct contact but need to exchange goods.
“We launched Zoodbox as the answer to expensive, slow courier services for businesses, people who buy and sell via online community directory listings, and for anyone tight on time,” said Kamal Rezvaninejad, founder of Zoodbox. “What’s been really rewarding for our team though is how the service has helped improve quality of life for those forced to shelter in place during this pandemic.”
Zoodbox is simple to use with a few taps of a finger. Users simply download the app and set up an account. They can then enter pickup and delivery locations and approximate package size and immediately see the estimated price. The user is paired with a nearby driver who confirms their order and delivers the package.
“As the country opens back up again, we see users maximizing the benefits of this service for whatever their business or personal needs may be. From picking up the laptop they forgot at home and getting it to them in time for that important presentation, to delivering kids’ sports equipment to their school, to businesses sending urgent documents across town so they don’t miss a sales opportunity, and on and on,” Kamal added. “We think people will get very accustomed to having Zoodbox as their personal assistance!”
Zoodbox is offering a limited time 50 percent off (use promo code, “Zoodbox” at checkout) on users’ first orders. The Company plans to gradually expand its small and light items delivery services city by city in Canada over the next couple of years.
