Careem has a new delivery service

Believe it or not, Careem just started a delivery service called Careem Box.

What is it?

It is Careem’s affordable delivery service for sending and receiving small items. You can send all sorts of items such as keys, documents, pharmacy pick-ups, or even a pair of shoes.

How does it work?

The process is simple. Just book a Box, and a Careem rider will arrive on a motorbike to take your item and drop it off to where you need it dropped in the UAE. Similar to Uber Eats, you can track your package in real time giving you that peace of mind that it’s actually going to get to the desired location. Post delivery, the payment is charged to your linked card, or you can even pay cash. The service is similar to Fetchr and should be an interesting entry into the delivery market.

When is it available?

Currently, Careem Box is available only in Dubai, but it will spread to more locations soon. The service is available from 8am to 8pm.

How much does it cost?

Deliveries start at Dh6, with a minimum fare of Dh20 for immediate pick-up and Dh30 for scheduled deliveries.
