For a monthly fee, you can get building materials delivered same day

AUSTIN - Building material delivery company RenoRun is offering what it says is the first of its kind: A subscription-based delivery model. For a monthly fee of $100, RenoRun Pro users will receive free same-day deliveries.
“With this exciting new rollout, we expect to see ongoing savings and peace of mind for our customers,” said Eamonn O’Rourke, CEO and founder of RenoRun. “Our beta launch two months ago was wildly successful because this new service allows builders to save time, money and energy on the jobsite – it’s really a win-win for both them and the property owners who hire them.”
The RenoRun app houses more than 20,000 construction materials, and allows for delivery both on-demand or in-advance.
"Run out of something on the job? Whatever you need, just open up the RenoRun app -- no more last minute “building supplies near me” searches," says the company. Materials are usually delivered in under two hours. Users can opt not to go for the subscription plan, and instead pay $60 for each delivery.
Over the past 12 months, RenoRun says it has seen more than 300 percent customer growth – and it expects this new model to increase growth further. The company was founded in Montreal in 2017.
“The amount of productivity my team has seen in the past two months has been significantly higher than before, and that’s largely thanks to the RenoRun Pro service.” said Allan Ramchatesingh of Newsam Construction, RenoRun Pro customer. “Not having to think about delivery pricing anymore has lifted a huge weight off our shoulders, and now we’re all able to just focus on the project at hand instead of worrying over budgets and calculations."
This latest development comes on the heels of a CA$22.5 million in Series A funding, which will be used to help expand services and create a better experience for RenoRun customers. The company was also recently named to CNBC’s Upstart 100 list and the 2019 Hive 50 list for their innovative material delivery strategy.
