Whizz is a New York-based company built on a simple idea: providing affordable and sustainable transportation for delivery drivers with flexible subscription plans for e-bike rentals and purchases. All this while guaranteeing vehicle maintenance and repair with daily tech support.
Most of Whizz's customers are gig contractors working for large food and grocery delivery companies like Grubhub, Doordash, and Uber Eats. However, the last-mile delivery industry has an unrealistically high barrier of entry for drivers, with the average price of an e-bike being around $1,500. Moreover, many drivers are often immigrant workers without a credit history, making it difficult to afford such a purchase and qualify for a loan.
That's where Whizz comes in. The company offers affordable long-term e-bike rental and rent-to-own subscription plans, which don't require large upfront payments and save much time in choosing the right vehicle to drive. In addition, the Whizz subscription includes everything that delivery drivers need, from convenient e-bikes with 8-hour battery life, GPS trackers, and built-in anti-theft systems, to on-demand maintenance and repairs.
Thanks to our unique Whizz Automation Platform, an ERP system for automating business processes, we've decreased operational expenses by 35%. This enables us to maintain 20% cheaper than the competition while providing exceptional customer service.
In other words, Whizz is on a mission to help gig workers access expensive equipment needed for their work when traditional financing is not an option. We aim to enhance economic opportunities for last-mile delivery drivers and provide them and the local community with sustainable transportation.
