6 Local Delivery and At Home Businesses
At the beginning of the pandemic, delivery and at home services were a necessity, and at times a lifeline, too many. While we are now able to return to many in-person activities and brick and mortar establishments, delivery and home services remain a huge time saver and a very important option for those who are still prioritizing social distancing or don’t have the mobility for certain activities.
Thankfully, Philly is home too many delivery/ at home businesses that launched during the pandemic, as well as existing businesses who have incorporated those services into regular offerings for customers. Here are 6 of our favorites:
Doctor house calls are pretty rare for humans but your pet can still enjoy that luxury with Vetter Pet Care. The greater Philly-based, home pet care company provides routine veterinary care in the comfort of your home, as well as puppy/kitten wellness, and end of life care. Coaxing your pet into their carrier and using sick days for vet appointments will become a thing of the past.
Composting is a great way to lessen your carbon footprint, but it doesn’t always seem possible when you live in an apartment. Bennett Composting solves this problem with their specially sealed compost bucket and easy pickup and disposal service. The process becomes even easier when you live at a Spruce Street Commons property, which provides Bennett Composting services complimentary to residents.
Between the endless search for parking and the trips to the auto shop for maintenance, having a car in Philly is complicated enough. When it comes to getting your car’s interior sparkling clean, save yourself the hassle and call Epic Mobile Detailing. Started as a side hustle for two Philly firefighters, the company will bring their industrial-strength car cleaning tools to you and transform your car while you remain in park.
We’ve all been there – you briefly take your phone case off and before you have a screen full of cracks. Breaking your phone screen always happens at the worst time: when you have a day full of meetings, back-to-back appointments, or you’re busy packing for a trip. With uBreakiFix’s “We Come to You” service, you can skip the lines at the repair shop and get your screen replaced at your apartment or office parking lot. Just fill out their website form to have a technician’s van arrive at your location as soon as the same day.
With everything going on in the world right now, and the holidays just around the corner, if you’re looking to indulge in some therapeutic self-care, you’re certainly not alone. Hands at Home brings the spa to your doorstep with a variety of massage services and facial treatments. With licensed massage therapists and estheticians and clean beauty products, you can feel good about your at-home rejuvenation.
With so many meal delivery options, it's frustrating that many aren’t a good fit for most working professionals. Takeout can be pricey and unhealthy, meal kits require cook time, and premade, frozen meals lack flavor and freshness. Home Aptétit solves most of these issues with their local take at a meal delivery service. Enjoy delicious meals made locally with fresh ingredients and delivered right to your door.
That concludes the list of our six favorites, local, delivery/ at home businesses here in Philly. Whether you’re social distancing to stop the spread, avoiding venturing out into the frigid Philly streets, or just trying to make the most out of hours in your day, we hope you found an at-home service or delivery option that you can enjoy this holiday season.
