For me this is probably the hardest page to write. I don’t like to talk about myself. I prefer to talk about business and hockey and other things but not about myself.
I guess if I have to talk about myself I’ll talk about a little bit of my business history. I’m a former delivery business owner and founder. I started my own delivery company from the ground up by myself with one truck and no real destination in mind. I started out handing out flyers and business cards to various businesses around town and two other small towns within a 2-hour Drive of where I live.
Within a few days I started getting my first calls and I started doing things like looking into getting insurance and making sure that I was covered for doing deliveries that’s a huge thing.
It wasn’t long before my small little business of carrying a few packages back and forth between the three small towns in my area that I was getting more and more calls. I was feeling a need that need to be fulfilled that no one else was doing.
In the past few years I’ve been watching things like uber and skip the dishes take off for people who are looking to fill a need. I have been thinking for a long time now of how to connect people that can potentially drive to people that need packages sent.
Over Christmas holiday sending and receiving spree I came up with the idea of starting this business which is kind of like an Uber for packages except people sign up as drivers and sign up as senders and send packages instead of people.
This idea seemed to be a hit with anybody that I mentioned it to considering where we live there is a lot of packages I go back and forth from town to town and let’s be honest the price of shipping has gone way up over the past few years and it’s hard to get things to yourself affordably.
I’ve always been the kind of person that likes to employ people I like to give to others sometimes to the detriment of myself. I have come up with a way for people to supplement their income and filling a need for people that want low-cost package transfers within cities or City to City.
I hope this new business model makes sense to everybody and there’s going to be some growing pains in the first few months. So please be patient with the process and we are going to be working closely with our website and app designers to make sure everything runs smoothly.
We are also making sure that the onus is on the delivery drivers to make sure that they have the proper Insurance to their insurance carrier and that they have a valid credit card and driver’s license to be drivers.
So to make a long story even longer I hope that everyone receives this app with a pleasant outcome. I’m hoping that in the future everyone can get on board with hatch Express and we can work for Positive Solutions for everyone.
