Capetonians can ditch queues and get water delivered straight to their doorstep
A local delivery service is expanding its services to help Cape Town residents during the current water crisis.
Picup South Africa says it will deliver water to homes and businesses through an on-demand, same-day courier service.
After seeing long queues at the Newlands spring, Co-Founder and CEO Antonio Bruni and his colleagues brainstormed how the company could help during the water shortage.
One of the biggest things we've seen is all the queues outside the supermarkets and at Newlands spring. It's constantly jam-packed with cars and all the people at all hours filling up with water.Antonio Bruni, CEO, Picup South Africa
