Currently, the services are available throughout Gurgaon with highly competitive prices along with no-questions-asked return policy but is set to quickly expand. “The daily struggles of grocery shopping used to kill my family time, especially during the weekend. I had always wished for a solution wherein a chore like grocery shopping could be done for me,” PepperTap co-founder Navneet Singh told IANS. Consumers can place their orders through the mobile app for delivery within two hours, making it one of the fastest services of its kind.

The app is available for both Android and Apple’s iOS platforms. The venture has received Series A funding of $10 million ( Rs.60 crore) from SAIF Partners and Sequoia Capital. “The funding will be leveraged for expanding the reach of PepperTap to 10 more cities by the end of the year,” said Navneet Singh, who wants to take PepperTap from a single-city operation to a pan-India one. Then, TimesSaverz, one of India’s first on-demand home-based service, delivers various services to one’s doorstep – from cleaning, repairs, handyman jobs to running errands and doing paperwork. Debadutta Upadhyaya, CEO & co-founder of TimeSaverz, which was founded in April 2013, said: “It is a combination of personal experience around the struggle for getting the right help for the right price at the right time in the metros, more so if you are a nuclear working couple family, without any support system.” TimeSaverz provides its services in Mumbai, Pune, and Bengaluru. It says that each of its agents is taken on only after thorough background checks.It provides services at market rates or even lower.

IT professional Asha Jain, 32, who recently shifted to Bengaluru shared her experience with IANS: “I moved to the city with little knowledge of the area and having no friends around made my situation worse. Then I used TimesSaverz and ordered cleaning services and they did a fabulous job.” UrbanClap, another start-up based in Delhi, helps users get the best professional services in areas like interior decoration, photography, event management and the like. Whether you are looking to decorate your home, get candid pictures of your wedding, planning your child’s birthday or just get healthier, UrbanClap is the destination for all your service needs. It connects online users with offline businesses. “Painful memories from the past, finding a guitar teacher, a home designer, tailor, wedding decorator, a house broker motivated us to launch UrbanClap,” Varun Khaitan, who co-founded UrbanClap in October 2014, told IANS. It’s the simplest way to find and hire trusted professionals, claim the founders.

The venture has raised Rs.10 crore in funding from SAIF Partners, Accel Partners and Snapdeal founders Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal. “The platform is already making thousands of successful connections every week and with the backing of our investors, we plan to scale up the platform across hundreds of services and multiple cities,” UrbanClap’s Raghav Chandra told IANS. “Our smartphone-based matchmaking solution is very smooth and helps you find the right professionals with no effort at all. It is as easy as a clap,” he added.

So, the next time you shift to a new city, just remember all the services are at your doorstep if you subscribe to these apps!
