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.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
