GoFor to Offer New Two-Person, Over-the-Threshold Delivery Service

·3-min read

Adding to its on-demand, same-day, last mile delivery and logistics offerings, GoFor enables businesses to deliver directly to consumers with extra ease and convenience

GoFor Industries, North America’s leading marketplace for last mile, on-demand and same-day delivery and logistics, announced today its newest delivery service: two-person, over-the-threshold delivery. Unlike traditional deliveries, which are completed by one person and left at the door, GoFor’s two-person, over-the-threshold delivery will improve customer experience for deliveries of big and bulky items that require heavy lifting or more than one pair of hands, such as furniture, appliances, and anything that must be moved securely into a customer’s home. The offering is available in all markets where GoFor currently operates.

"With the demand for residential delivery hitting an all-time high, we are proud to help retailers of all sizes step up their delivery," said Brad Rollo, CEO, GoFor. "Taking delivery a step further for added customer satisfaction and ease, our two-person, over-the-threshold service will allow packages to be dropped off inside the home. With e-commerce spiking in popularity, customers continue to buy large items that require more than one person to deliver, including patio furniture, appliances and so much more. This quick, convenient delivery option via GoFor’s scalable marketplace directly addresses the need to go above and beyond for customers."

Over-the-threshold delivery is becoming more common as consumers rely more heavily on delivery and look to ensure their items stay safe and intact.

"We expect to see over-the-threshold delivery expand in popularity," said Chris Jarvis, Chief Logistics Officer, GoFor. "With our two-person, over-the-threshold delivery, businesses will be able to guarantee that their customers’ orders arrive safely inside their homes, limiting the impact of the elements, theft and other variables that affect customer satisfaction."

As consumer shopping patterns and delivery expectations change fundamentally due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GoFor is poised to execute on its vision to revolutionize logistics with innovative technologies and deliver the ultimate customer experience. Offering a fast, scalable, multi-person delivery service is a step toward fully integrated e-commerce solutions that prioritize convenience and delivery.
