Sometimes when we need to get something delivered to somewhere else, the regular old mail service just doesn’t suit. It might be because of the item’s size or it could be because we’ve left it a tad too late.
Whatever the reason, finding an alternative delivery service isn’t always all that easy. Now, however thanks to our latest Startup of the Week that need no longer be the case.
Nimber is an innovative new platform that connects people who need to send something from one place to another with people who happen to be going that way.
Here’s how it works:
As a Sender, you simply post details of your shipment on the site and then you will get contacted by Bringers who will give you details of when and how they can deliver your shipment for you.
It’s up to you then to select a Bringer, confirm the pickup and delivery times and of course work out the price.
Couldn’t be easier!
As we all know, it looks like the sharing economy is here to stay and Nimber is another great example of why that should be the case.
It’s a win win for all involved - Senders get their items delivered, Bringers can earn a little extra money and of course the environment is a winner too since it is existing spare car and van capacity which is typically used to transport said items.
We love what Nimber is all about and if you check out the short video below, we reckon you will too…
