GrabExpress, a delivery service from ride-hailing giant Grab, is offering parcel and courier delivery services at a reasonable price.
Instant and 4-hour delivery window
Customers can choose from two types of delivery services: “Instant” or “4 Hours”.
The “4 Hours” delivery service, a new addition to the service, allows customers to have their items to be delivered within four hours.
This service can be used for items that you need to send to your recipient on the day itself, but not time-sensitive - this would then save you time from having to personally deliver the item yourself.
For example, returning clothes and books to a friend, shipping out items to your customers, or sending a pre-loved item to a Carousell buyer.
Customers can also choose from “Instant” delivery service, the sender will have their items picked up within 15 minutes and delivered within 60 minutes islandwide.
This would be more appropriate for situations like sending food and pastries, or important items such as keys or important documents left at home.
It can also be used to expedite deliveries of certain items such as gifts for occasions such as birthday gatherings.
Pick the right type of vehicle for your item - bike for more hardy, smaller items, and car for bigger, fragile and perishable items, and you’re ready to go.
It is priced from S$5.30 to S$13.30, depending on the distance covered for the delivery.
Here’s the price tier for easy reference:
- 0 - 5km: S$5.30
- 5 - 10km: S$7.30
- 10 - 20km: S$10.30
- 20km - 30km: S$13.30
The service is suitable for home-based businesses and online retailers too.
All they need to do is to tap the “Create a delivery form” button, and you can create a form to all your buyers to fill up their delivery info.
This saves sellers the hassle of coordinating and pricing deliveries.
