HeyBryan is adding pickup and delivery services to its roster of available tasks and is encouraging its network of experts to sign up for this new category to help during this time of need.
The HeyBryan app that connects home-maintenance experts to consumers for help with small tasks around the home.
HeyBryan will not be charging their regular service fee on pickup and delivery services.
With the COVID-19 outbreak keeping people at home across Canada, there is major demand resulting in long wait times for online retailers and other delivery services and the company saw an opportunity to help those in need and in our communities in general.
Lance Montgomery, CEO of HeyBryan, says: “As the situation continues to evolve, we recognize the growing need for affordable pickup and delivery services – particularly for the elderly, more vulnerable or anyone else unable to get the essential supplies they need. Because no cash changes hands with HeyBryan and all payments happen in-app, social distancing can be easily adhered to.”
Home maintenance experts on the app are also now signing up to make themselves available to provide pickup and delivery services.
All HeyBryan delivery experts are required to follow health and safety practices that include frequently washing their hands, using hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes in their vehicle, wearing gloves, declining or cancelling tasks if they are feeling unwell, and avoiding direct contact with customers.
