Why Your Houston Retail Business Needs Same-Day Delivery 

In this age of “instant gratification” where a weeks worth of groceries are on your doorstep in less than an hour, a ride is always just a few minutes away, and an on-demand masseuse is a plausible option, customers expect things to be handled for them right when they need it and retail is no exception. 

One of the best ways for your retail business in the Houston area, including the surrounding areas of Katy, Pearland, Spring and Sugar Land, to stay top-of-mind is to offer a same-day delivery service.

In order to compete with the likes of Amazon and other mega retailers, offering a same-day delivery service to your customers is becoming increasingly important for local retailers. 

• A survey by Dropoff found that after receiving same-day delivery, 89% of consumers said they were more likely to purchase from that retailer again.
• According to another survey by Dropoff, 60% of consumers have abandoned a shopping cart due to slow delivery options.
• In that same survey, 46% of consumers said, “I expect companies to have much faster delivery times than I did a year ago.”

Whether your customers prefer to shop online, over the phone or in-person, the option to have their items delivered the same-day they order them to their homes or offices will attract more customers to your business and increase loyalty.

However, implementing this “last mile logistic” is rarely a walk in the park. Coordinating same-day delivery can be challenging for local retailers. It’s hard to figure out a sustainable and economical model all on your own.

One of the best solutions is to partner with local service providers that offer on-demand, same-day delivery to help "up" your customer service game without significantly increasing your operational cost or breaking your customer's bank.

Here at Dropoff, we make same-day delivery easy so that you can attract more customers and increase loyalty.

Through our feature-rich API that connects to your e-commerce site, your customers can choose "same-day delivery" directly at checkout we will be notified, the moment the order is placed. If your customers prefer calling your store to purchase their items, worry not. Our easy-to-use online ordering process is as straightforward as it gets. Simply enter in your customer's details and Dropoff will take care of the rest. 

You can then track the delivery real-time on a live map, and receive updates on the ETA during the entire process. You’ll also get a signature verification email so you can rest assured that the delivery arrives to your customer on time and in perfect condition. Does your customer want to stay updated on the whereabouts of their items? Add their email address during the ordering process to give them access to tracking and ETAs. 

Navigating Houston traffic is stressful to say the least. Our fleet of cars, SUVs, and cargo vans are well suited to make their way through the city streets without delaying the delivery. Dropoff Agents are insured and background-checked. They put safety first and are familiar with the streets of Houston. Additionally, uniforms and branded vehicles give your customers an added sense of professionalism. 

Moreover, our deliveries are processed in small batches, so the risk of packages being lost or damaged is vastly reduced.

Our team at Dropoff is ready to help you take your retail business to the next level, right here in the Houston area. See how our exceptional customer service, real-time tracking, and confirmation, as well as highest level of security and reliability, can help your business grow.
