Peer-to-peer tasking app Pinga has announced its expansion across Central London, following a successful launch in Hackney last year. Pinga is saving Londoners who are having everyday ‘small life’ emergencies, by instantly connecting someone who needs something, to someone nearby who can help.
Pinga launched in East London last year and has seen a great demand with thousands of East Londoners taking it up. With new expansion across the city, people in the capital are requesting all kinds of weird and wonderful things to be delivered.
In December Pinga solved an unfortunate situation in Mayfair. New Pinga user Georgie was getting ready for an important meeting when disaster struck, she split her jeans! What would you do in this situation? Pinga to the rescue. She requested a pair of size 14 high waist jeans from Primark. Primark doesn’t deliver, but with Pinga Georgie received her new jeans within the hour, just in time for that meeting.
Pinga also is a great tool when you need a tool. They receive many requests for small tools from discount retailers like Poundland or B&M (Both of these do not offer a delivery service). Having the ability to get a flathead screwdriver or multitool delivered in minutes is handy for many to have.
Food delivery is big business in London. But not all food is readily available to order to be delivered. Obviously, you can easily order a takeaway, but what if you just want a few snacks and drinks? Pinga gives its growing number of customers an option to get items delivered from convenience stores, late night petrol stations and local supermarkets. Likewise, coffee requests are also a firm favourite with Pinga customers. At the moment if you wanted a coffee delivered to your desk, Pinga is almost the only solution.
Michael Goulden, co-founder of Pinga said, “Pinga is the everyday emergency service for when you really need something, quick. Because we are not affiliated to any retailer, we offer rapid delivery from anywhere to anywhere at any time. ”
