A new app has launched and it’s here to Uberfy the Home & Hardware industry by delivering supplies and materials on-demand straight to consumer’s doorsteps. Rendr, which is available for both iOS and Android users, conveniently and quickly delivers plant, home, and hardware supplies to consumers across Melbourne.
With DIY on the rise and Melburnians unable to head to their local hardware store, Rendr is taking the leg work out of DIY and trade projects.
Co-founded by Greg Leibowitz and James Fisher, this Aussie app is a game-changer for both at-home DIYers and the trade industry.
“The concept of on-demand delivery for the home and hardware space began in 2018 and launched mid-June of this year. We saw there was a clear niche in the market for both tradesmen, as well as DIY’ers to have the products they need, delivered when they want. The last mile solution space has already paid dividends for industries such as food, ride-share, alcohol and groceries, however, delivery of Home & Hardware products was not yet focused on.
Our mission at Rendr is to provide an on-demand delivery solution for the Home & Hardware space, by leveraging technology and exceptional customer service, to ensure a convenient and seamless process for the end consumer. As a brand, we hold a strong belief in modernising the DIY and trade industry to work more efficiently, helping people bring their ideas to life,” says Rendr co-founder James Fisher.
For those with a green thumb, Rendr also delivers everything you need to transform your home and garden into a plant-filled oasis, offering DIY Veggie Kits, Organic Garden Bundles, fertilisers, plants, succulents, seeds, pot, planters, and more.
“Online shopping is more than ever at the forefront of consumers’ minds. As a result of the current pandemic, Rendr has seen rapid growth since our launch in early June, which has further been boosted due to the ongoing Stage 4 restrictions introduced in Victoria.
Since Stage 4 Lockdown regulations came into effect, Rendr has seen a 235.7% increase in app usage, which is really positive and emphasising the demand and rise of both DIY projects and trade work. Our focus on inspiring and assisting consumers has never waivered, along with our promise of providing a fast and on-demand delivery solution, despite the current circumstances,” says Rendr co-founder, Greg Leibowitz.
Want to start some DIY projects at home? Here are some of Rendr’s top picks:
Add a touch of nature to your home space:
The addition of house plants brings not only a sense of warmth and liveliness but they are also natural air purifiers, effective in increasing mood and productivity, both of which are pivotal in everyday life.
Freshen up your walls with a splash of white:
There’s nothing quite like well-painted walls, they bring out the interior feel of your home space. If it’s brightness you seek, the first point of call for colour choice is white. A go-to would be warmer whites, which have a yellow/brown base and make for a cozy and warm ambience.
Have fun with the fam & grow your own veggie garden:
Family time is the best, and what better way to spend it than outdoors. Get the kids involved in a fun and playful project, the build of a veggie patch. Both simple and useful, watch the seedlings of your choice grow from little toddlers through to fruitful and ripe produce all at your very own fingertips!
Heat up with the addition of a fire pit:
Ideal for creating an al fresco lounge space, fire pits provide both for a perfect focal point, as well as an area to wind down and relax. Make your outdoor space stand out by surrounding your fire pit with eye-catching decor and vibrant seating arrangements.
Invest in a water feature:
Water features are exceptional stress-relievers and mood enhancers, providing a strong environmental ambience. Energise your garden through both sound and motion, creating a home improvement that is both visually and textually appealing and relaxing.
