If your busy lifestyle is leaving you with little time to conduct important tasks, contact these niche e-portals which offer services that are just a phone call away.
HELP AT HAND
Forget the frustrating and time-consuming job of chasing recalcitrant handymen who delight in never keeping their appointments. Consumers in NCR can ease their heartburn by calling up Easyfix.in at 011-44838888. The one-call repair and maintenance service portal provides plumbers, electricians and carpenters at a time that is convenient to you.
The booking cost is Rs 30 and the minimum charge for labour is Rs 100. Customers are charged on an hourly basis. Though the company does not provide raw material, the handymen-on-call are happy to procure items for customers at an additional charge of Rs 50.
GROCERY AT YOUR DOORSTEP
Busy lifestyles leave us with little time to browse through supermarkets. So, use your 5-minute coffee break to order through online grocery shops, which deliver fresh produce at your doorstep. You can either call or send a message to their customer care numbers or book online. While Chennai-based Veggibazaar.com (9500079697) delivers only in the city, Vegoncall.com (48884888) has its outlet in Delhi in Dwarka.
On the other hand, Farm2kitchen.com delivers organic food across the country as long as the order is above Rs 400. To know more, you can contact their number 1800-180-FARM (3267). These sites have fixed durations for order and delivery as well as a minimum order stipulation.
DIAL A DONOR
A medical emergency is when you need the most help, especially if you need blood immediately. Nagpur-based Indianblooddonors.com is a free service that connects you with blood donors directly from across India.
After you dial their number 7961907766, recorded messages will guide you to select the blood group that you require and deliver the contact number of a donor. Simultaneously, the donor also gets a message that informs him that you will be getting in touch.
What do you do when you come home late from work and empty kitchen cabinets stare back at you? Unfortunately, most restaurants and shops shut down by midnight, so you could either go hungry or, if you live in Mumbai, frantically dial Flybyknight.com and Nightcall.in to appease your hunger. Both these portals offer munchies (soft drinks, water, chocolates, biscuits, chips, Maggi) and other essential supplies like antacids while the city’s shopkeepers snooze.
Flybyknight.com on 9930067337 operates from Bandra to Andheri between 11 pm and 3 am from Wednesday to Sunday and can be contacted on 9930067337. If you live between Cuffe Parade and CST, you can dial Nightcall.in on 9820794523 during weekends between 11 pm and 4 am. Both sites will tag on Rs 50 as delivery charge to your bill.
