The 1500 drivers who will handle deliveries to homes in the Western Province have been selected based on customer referrals. Every one of these PickMe drivers has received above 4.5 star ratings out of 5 from their passengers and customers.
The company said it is taking every precaution, such as training, health checks etc., to ensure the best service all round.
