Let’s s say you forgot something at home that you need for your meeting in an hour? Or you need to send gifts to your friends? What if, heaven forbid, you forgot your passport and you just arrived at the airport? Now there is a simple solution without inconveniencing anybody—GrabExpress!
GrabExpress, a new courier service from GrabTaxi, the country’s leading transportation mobile app, assures a convenient, reliable and safe on-demand delivery service suitable for personal or business use.
“We’ve been testing the beta version of GrabExpress these past few months and we are now confident that it can provide a hassle-free and affordable delivery service for everyone’s personal or business needs. With GrabExpress, the GrabTaxi app provides not only an innovative way of moving people but also of things. When GrabExpress was conceptualized, the first customers we had in mind were the small businesses that we could help. As a tech company, we want to enable e-commerce and broaden the reach of these startup businesses.” said GrabExpress Head, Angeline Tham.
With just a few taps on your smartphone, you can now send documents, parcels, gifts and more to your loved ones. You can even ask the rider to purchase items under Php 1000 for you like popcorn and coffee. If you’re a small business, you can partner with them to deliver your products to your customers like clothes, juices or phone accessories. It is an on-demand delivery service where the rider comes to you immediately upon booking confirmation, gets the package, and then delivers it right away to your recipient.
Using the GrabTaxi app, all you have to do is select the GrabExpress icon then input the pick-up and drop-off points for your delivery. Remember to key in the recipient’s name and contact number in the notes section, as well as other important details such as landmarks and gate numbers so that the rider will find his destination easier and faster. The best part is, after confirming the booking, you and your recipient can track your package’s status and whereabouts real-time.
“Aside from the convenience and reliability of GrabExpress, we also make sure that the parcels entrusted to us are safe. Our riders are trained to handle them with care and we also provide insurance for unforeseen circumstances,” said Tham.
GrabExpress can be used for packages that are less than five kilograms with dimensions not exceeding 28x32x12cm. It is best available on Monday to Saturday, 8am to 8pm in Alabang, Makati, Mandaluyong, Manila, Marikina, Pasig, Pateros, Pasay, Paranaque, San Juan, Taguig and Quezon City districts 1, 3, 4 and 6.
