The holidays can sometimes be the most stressful time of year, especially when it comes to shopping for everyone on your list. Finding the perfect present is only the first hurdle — the most difficult part is making sure it gets delivered in time.
Most are forced to blindly rely on shipping companies like UPS and FedEx, and just hope that things get delivered by Christmas. The worst part? If you're a last-minute shopper, there is no way to ship gifts unless you pay inflated rush pricing.
Luckily for us in Dallas-Fort Worth, a company recently launched that is helping small businesses guarantee holiday deliveries: Lalamove.
Lalamove is breaking through the concept of shipping deadlines and delayed deliveries by offering same-day, local deliveries for four to eight times less than a national shipping company, without week-long wait times.
The innovative courier service gives small businesses the ability to place deliveries via the mobile app or website, and gives business owners peace of mind with the following features:
No shipping deadlines
With Lalamove's same-day and on-demand delivery, you can get any gift, order, and package delivered to your doorstep, same-day.
Purchase directly with a business, then simply open the Lalamove app, enter the pick-up and drop-off locations, and get matched with a driver in seconds.
No extra fees
Thinking there must be holiday rush fees or a premium for same-day delivery? Think again. Lalamove charges a flat-rate fee for all DFW deliveries starting at $6.99, then $1 a mile (the first three miles are free).
With FedEx and UPS rush shipping, the cost for same- or next-day delivery could be $35-$75. After all, delivery shouldn't cost more than the gift.
No more vague "in-transit" notifications, and no more having to wonder where your package is. Lalamove provides live tracking on every delivery so you can see where your items are in real-time via the in-app map.
No delivery restrictions
When you choose to deliver with traditional services, you're forced to pack things in a box, print a specific label, and drop it all off within a certain delivery window.
Who has time to do all that? With Lalamove, you simply place an order and tell them when to pick it up and where to drop it off.
If you're looking for a way to make things easier this holiday season, Lalamove is here to gift you with those holly, jolly, low-cost delivery solutions you put on your wish list every year. Visit the website or download the Lalamove app to get started.
