Online hardware retailer Snappy launches with two-hour delivery to customers

SNAPPY, a new online only hardware retailer that can deliver in as little as two hours from an order, has launched.

Michelle Kong, General Manager of SNAPPY, says the new website initially offers more than 5,000 products across safety gear, fastenings and tools, offering delivery to the Auckland area.  Snappy plans to expand into other hardware categories, as well as eventually ship to a wider geographic coverage, nationally.

“SNAPPY has been designed to make it easier for professional tradies and serious DIYers to get the job done.  We aim to remove the hassle from the shopping experience and reduce the time off the tools.”

Snappy does this through:

  • Smart, simple and intuitive search technology to make it easy to find what is needed among thousands of products.  Search by brand, job, price, or product features – or all of these together.
  • Detailed, accurate product descriptions that help you select the right product for the job
  • A range of delivery options including 2 hour URGENT, next day, or 3-7 business day delivery

“Modern tradies, builders and specialists who work for themselves or in a small team are interested in completing their jobs efficiently, painlessly and profitably.   The serious DIYer wants to get the job done efficiently.  Our aim is to assist them all in doing that by getting their materials to them fast, and the team is obsessively focused on delivering a fantastic customer experience while doing so”, says Michelle.   

 “We’ve just launched with a modest core range, but we are constantly expanding our product range, our special deals, and improving website features, so we’re really interested to hear from our customers as to what they need and want most.”

 “We have listened to customer feedback across the building supplies market, and this feedback tells us that customers wish they didn’t have to go or send someone off the jobsite to search for the materials they need, or visit multiple stores to get the one item they’re after.    We thought we could help, using the best of digital technology to make the shopping and shipping experience simple and hassle free.   Our over-riding aim is to make sure that nobody is easier to do business with than Snappy.”

SNAPPY lets you order exactly what you want from your mobile phone or computer. We’re open for orders 24/7 and we’ll deliver direct to your home or site.  No time off tools required.
