22-year old entrepreneurs, James Fisher and Greg Leibowitz have launch the Rendr app in Melbourne for doorstep-delivery of home and hardware supplies. The new on-demand delivery startup calls itself the “Uber for plants, home and hardware” and is available for iOS and Android users.
Through this app, users can seamlessly order plants, power tools, paint, basins and everything in between and get it delivered to their home or job sites. The app appeals to DIYers and tradies in Melbourne and has already seen significant demand growth in the past few weeks.
About the founders of Rendr
Leibowitz and Fisher started their career together by establishing a digital marketing agency straight out of school in 2017. They noticed a boom in the “on-demand delivery service” industry. The duo also had a discussion with their tradie mates about the struggle of delayed deliveries and inconvenience of having to leave job sites to collect supplies. Leibowitz and Fisher immediately recognized the gap in the market and decided to create Rendr.
Co-founder Greg Leibowitz says that by dissecting the ever-changing retail landscape, they found that there wasn’t an all-in-one platform available for DIYers and trades that provided on-demand delivery of the supplies. By combining sophisticated technology and ease-of-use, the perfect solution was developed, he added. Within the first two months of launching Rendr in Melbourne, they’ve seen consumer demand grow exponentially.

About Rendr – the hardware supply delivery app
The Rendr app has been designed using cutting-edge technology that seamlessly allows users to buy items at the tap of a button and have them delivered whenever they need it. The team has also implemented useful features such as a paint estimator tool and bundle packages for convenience and ease. Co-founder James Fisher says they have got big plans for expansion in the future which includes becoming an all-encompassing app for all DIY and trade needs.
During the lockdown, the app has seen an increase in growth which shows that consumers are choosing to purchase through their app instead of stepping out to the local hardware store to make a purchase. Rendr provides Melburnians with a home-and-hardware store at their fingertips and allows projects to be completed on time and efficiently while supplies and tools delivery is taken care of by them.
