Courier service Getchya launches in Fort Lauderdale
There’s a new courier service in town. Founded by 18-year-old entrepreneur Ari Zebersky from Fort Lauderdale, Getchya aims to help customers complete their daily tasks.
Getchya will provide with pick-up and delivery services to and from stores, restaurants, and post offices. It also provides home-to-home and business-to-business courier services like picking up a birthday present or dropping off dry cleaning. Using the app, customers can message drivers and see where the driver is with a GPS tracking map.
“We are disrupting the service platform industry with the development and launch of our Getchya app,” said Ari Zebersky, Founder and CEO of Getchya, who is also known in the area for his nonprofit Sunshine Gameday, which brings disadvantaged children to professional sporting events. “In an age where people spend more time ordering online, we know our company will provide both convenience and new functionality to the completion of everyday tasks safely.”
Currently available in the Fort Lauderdale area, Getchya is set to open to additional areas as demand increases. In fact, the company has already launched in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with plans to expand to other major metropolitan areas in the country. Zebersky is already known in the South Florida area for his first concept Sunshine Gameday, a non-profit organization that aims to brighten the days of disadvantaged kids by bringing them to professional sporting events.
The app distinguishes itself from other platforms by allowing customers to select preferred drivers.
“At Getchya we believe that every delivery should come with a trustworthy, familiar face,” said Zebersky. “We reinforce this idea by allowing our customers the option to use the drivers they really like for future deliveries and we feel this will increase longevity in the job market at a time when many are looking for employment.”
The company hired 50 drivers for the launch and is hiring more based on need.
To book jobs, users can download the Getchya app on Android and iOS. Affordable pricing ranges per job from $10 and up for drop offs and pickups.
