By Caitland Shaw Friday, 14th April 2023 0 Comments TradeKart saving Tradespeople 3-4 hours a week ! Introducing the TradeKart app which acts as a Deliveroo but for trade materials, its estimated that tradespeople lose an average of 3-4 hours each week from having to leave the site to collect materials. This works out at an average of 2 days every month meaning that it is a huge financial and time cost which will continue to soar with rising fuel prices. This app is meant to give you them 2 days a month back. The rapid delivery app for tradespeople was founded by Alistair McAuley, who previously spent 15 years as a Director at AkzoNobel. He started TradeKart to give tradespeople back their valuable time while also offering local merchants a valuable last-mile delivery solution. “We’re passionate about supporting the thriving building and trade communities right across the UK. That’s why we created TradeKart, to follow in the footsteps of other well-known delivery apps and offer convenience and flexibility. TradeKart is our opportunity to take the hassle out of collecting materials, giving tradespeople back that all-important gift of time.” Says Alistair. TradeKart can deliver to more than 900 postcodes throughout the north and central London, with more being added constantly, and is partnering with local merchants including MP Moran, London Decorators Merchants, Paint Centre, Topdec Decorating Supplies and Paint Stop. Through the app, tradespeople can order a wide range of products including paint, filler, tapes, wood stain, tools, wood care and paint remover. To use TradeKart, simply download the free app and create an account, then the app will connect you with participating local merchants in your area. You simply choose the products you need, then select a convenient delivery slot from within the next two hours if you need the items in a hurry, right through to the following week. A flat £5 fee is charged for every delivery and, once payment is made, the order is sent straight to the merchant to prepare the items for dispatch. A TradeKart delivery driver will then bring the products directly your door, with the app allowing you to follow the delivery’s progress in real time. TradeKart is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play. Post navigation Previous Post Carhartt workwear strikes again !
