Did you forget your kid’s skates at the rink? Do you want to order food from a restaurant that doesn’t offer delivery? Do you need to pick up a gift for a birthday party this afternoon? Don’t worry, Point Pickup is here to help lighten your load of errands!
Point Pickup is a same-day delivery app and website that utilizes Pickup Partners (regular people) in local communities to provide convenient same-day delivery to and from any point.
For Pickup Partners, the app offers an unmatched ability to customize the area and hours they will be available to make deliveries, enabling individuals in the local community with full- or part-time jobs or busy schedules to make extra money as Pickup Partners.
“Point Pickup is electrifying the currently unwired local transportation network to create an efficient, easy-to-use and effective local delivery service,” stated Tom Fiorita, CEO and Founder of Point Pickup. “The current market for local delivery services is fragmented, with heavy infrastructure players operating in densely populated areas and very few options in suburban or rural markets.”
How It Works
With Point Pickup, anyone can set up a delivery between any two parties – business to consumer, consumer to business, individual to individual.
A user can set the Pickup and Drop-off locations, input the Date & Time for each, along with basic Package Details and any Notes. Point Pickup system will generate a price for the request and preview order details. After a tap, Create Order, the order request becomes visible to any Pickup Partners with that area & time coverage. The first Pickup Partner to accept the order is responsible for pick up and delivery of the order as requested. Once the delivery is made, a notification is sent to the party who initiated the request.
Point Pickup’s technology enables Pickup Partners to make money by making deliveries without having to alter their everyday routines. They can commit to be available all day or work partial days. With hundreds of background-checked Pickup Partners already in the system, the company has successfully facilitated deliveries for many Greenwich Moms.
Pricing & Locations
Point Pickup is $10 for the first 3 miles between the pick-up and drop-off locations and $1.50 extra for each additional mile. Oversized and overweight deliveries incur a 50% premium. Pickup Partners share is 80% of the total fee.
