Why Your Nashville Retail Business Needs Same-Day Delivery 

There’s a lot to consider when running a retail business in Nashville and Davidson County. With its renowned music and tourist industry, the market is competitive and customer expectations are high.

Plus, you’re not only competing with local businesses but also against Internet retailers, as more and more online stores are offering same-day delivery in major cities such as Nashville.

How can you offer exceptional services that’ll help you stay competitive?


One way is to offer a same-day delivery service to create a convenient retail experience that will help attract more customers and increase loyalty. Recent surveys show:

• 56% of consumers age 18-34 expect a same-day shipping choice, according to a survey by Trustev.
• 64% of Millennials are more likely to make a purchase if same-day delivery is an option, according to a survey by Coldwell Banker Affiliates.
• A survey by Dropoff found that 98% of Millennials consider quick delivery important when buying online.

A same-day delivery option gives tremendous opportunity to expand your client base and increase sales.

Whether your customers shop online, order over the phone or research items in-store before buying online, a same-day delivery option gives them the added convenience of having items delivered to their doorsteps within hours. This will augment the shopping experience and increase customer loyalty.

However, this “last mile logistic” can be complicated to coordinate and implement when you already have a lot on your plate.

Owning a large fleet of vehicles is unlikely to be a sustainable solution while having just one or two drivers available could leave you short-handed when things get busy or traffic is bad.

Good news is, there’s another option. Working with a local service provider who offers on-demand delivery allows you to add a same-day delivery option without breaking the bank.

Here at Dropoff, we help local businesses in Nashville make same-day delivery viable and sustainable with our reliable fleet of vehicles and drivers, available 24/7/365.

Using our feature-rich API, you can connect your retail POS or warehouse management software to our backend system for us to take care of your delivery as soon as possible, as if we work right there in your store.

After your package is picked up, you can track its location and check on the ETA using our live map tracking system. You’ll then be notified via email that the package arrives on time and in good condition through our signature verification emails.

Traffic in Nashville can get busy at times. Our delivery Agents drive cars, SUVs, and cargo vans – which are great for navigating the crowded city streets during peak hours.

The use of these smaller vehicles also means deliveries are taken care of in small batches, so it’s far less likely that items will get lost or damaged.

Our Agents are there to represent your brand during the delivery, and we understand the importance of projecting a professional image. All our drivers have extensive customer service experience, wear uniforms, and drive branded vehicles. They are committed to providing you and your customers with top-notch service.

Are you ready to get more customers and grow your retail business? Our team at Dropoff is committed to helping you succeed. Find out more about our upfront pricing, reliable service, and flexible scheduling here.
