We want a lot these days, and we are becoming increasingly impatient. When we want something, we want it now. At the same time, we want to be ahead of trends. We want to be the first to try new things, but we would rather have them brought to us than leave our homes.

This means there is plenty of scope for interesting and unusual delivery services bringing exciting products directly to our homes. We are time-poor and looking to be more efficient, although we might also be a little spoilt and lazy! 

Deliveroo is now a household name, but there are plenty more delivery services waiting to break through.

Blue Apron

Healthy eating continues to be huge, with schemes such as HelloFresh encouraging us to cook more interesting meals from scratch. Blue Apron offers a similar service in the US and brings a whole week’s worth of fresh ingredients directly to your home. It offers oriental menus and a weekly menu breakdown online.

Postmates

Postmates is another US-based company. It will collect food from your favourite restaurant, Deliveroo-style, but goes one step further and can bring items from a supermarket via a website or app around the clock. Perhaps you don’t fancy leaving the house to collect a prescription or your dry cleaning – leave it to Postmates.

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix is a US-based business that helps you to stay bang on trend with the latest fashions without having to set foot on the high street. By registering a few short details about your size, style and budget, Stitch Fix will choose outfits and deliver them to you. There is a styling fee; however, after this, you are only charged for what you keep.

For more interesting and unusual delivery services, see the selection found by the Huffington Post.

If you need something taken somewhere rather than delivered to you, there are – of course – services to help you with this; for example, businesses such as https://www.uk-tdl.com/man-and-van-slough.html offer the services of a man and van in Slough to help with residential or commercial removals.

With new businesses popping up all the time, there is lots of scope for finding something new and plenty of demand if you have an idea for a startup of your own.
