Go Fetchit is a new service I tried out the other day which runs like an Uber service for delivery and pickup of items. I needed to get rid of two appliances and lumber materials to be taken to the dump. We use Uhaul for our Staging service of Etobicokehomes4sale.com ( our Real Estate family business) on a regular basis. But with Uhaul you need to get help with the lifting, rental of the truck, insurance on the truck and kilometers and gas for the truck. These are the fixed costs. So when I needed to get rid of the items already mentioned I wanted a simpler way of doing it minus all the headaches of finding help and insurance etc.

I watched a recent TV program on Zoomers TV on Downsizing your home to a smaller premise. The show had a panel of advisors on it from the Real Estate industry, mortgage, and financial industry and people that do staging. This new service was promoted called Fetchit so I downloaded the App on my iPhone and figured out which of their services I needed. I chose Garbage and filled out what I was getting rid of and a quote of $200.00 came up. I entered the payment info and a photo of the items and posted the job and waited for a timed response of someone accepting the work. I was unsure when I posted what size of vehicle was needed and did not want to choose wrongly. Fortunately, they can be contacted online or by phone. I needed to contact someone when I noticed the there were 2 charges put through my credit account. I phoned and thankfully a person answered and informed that a hold was put on for the job posting but I would not be charged until the job was completed (apparently UBER does this as well) The second posting I inadvertently made when trying to figure out how Fetchit works.

The date and time I had scheduled the job for were emailed as confirmation and the Driver arrived and loaded the merchandise on his truck. No monies were transferred until the I opened the App on my iPhone, reviewed the completion and satisfaction and then entered the pay button.

My recommendation was favourable . You do need to get the items to the curbside and if loading takes longer than 5-10 minutes I believe there is an additional nominal charge. So I had everything ready an hour before he arrived which is good when you are in a Condo situation and can’t have stuff laying around for ANY LENGTH of time.

As trying out new things is sometimes difficult finding help is one thing and hoping they are suitable to the task is another. Then the trials and tribulations of getting a truck, driving a truck, plus gas, insurance and potential health and accidental occurrences, ala in all I found this service convenient and efficient in so many ways. Definitely worth a try. And when confirmed that payment was received I opened my Fetchit App and it showed the mistake of a second charge to my card was cancelled. Nice job , Fetchit! and thanks.
