Tired of lugging boxes onto the train home from work? Frustrated by missed package notifications? Now, instead of shipping to your office or home, ship to Luna. Luna receives all of your packages for you and delivers them at night, on your schedule, once you’re home. No more carrying big boxes uphill to your house, staying home from work for that new TV or missing the delivery of a last minute birthday present.
Solving an actual problem for people that either miss a lot of deliveries, have them stolen, or hate waiting for packages is why Luna is so great. From the mind of Zack Shapiro, he like many others was slapped with inspiration when he kept missing shipment deliveries of a package of his own. His solution was to ship it to work were he knew he would be, but his delivery was a 50lb kettlebell. Now imagine is his pains of having to lug it back after work all the way back home. A reality that we’re sure has slapped a lot of you as well.
With a hole in the market for package delivery at night when people are actually at home is his solution. With cofounder Beamer Wilkins the Luna – Moonlit Deliveries app was born. The service allows users to set delivery times in the evening between 7pm and midnight. Packages are shipped for just $6.99 but currently only for the San Francisco area.
Currently the project is in a pilot phase, but if people learn to trust the new service there are hopes to launch it many more major cities.
