GoFetch is a peer-to-peer on demand delivery mobile app. It connects local businesses and individuals in a smarter and more efficient way. By leveraging the power of the collaborative economy, GoFetch allows users to request a delivery on demand and gives a community of willing “Fetchers” the ability to undertake the request.
GoFetch aims to transform urban logistics by enabling anyone to get anything delivered in a short period of time. This closes the gap between purchases and deliveries and makes for an easy, connected and empowering experience.
GoFetch respects and upholds your rights to privacy protection under the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988.
This policy describes how we manage any personal information we have about you.
This policy does not apply to our employees and job applicants. Please contact human resources for privacy details applicable in that case.
GoFetch may hold the following information about you:
We may be unable to provide our services to you if you do not provide some personal information. For example, without name and contact details it is impractical for us to permit you to use our Platform to arrange deliveries.
If at any time you provide the personal information of another person to us, then you must ensure that that person has read and understood this policy and separately consents to that personal information being used and disclosed by us for the above purposes.
We collect information about you primarily directly from you, particularly when you first register with us as a Customer or Fetcher. We may also collect your personal information:
We hold most personal information electronically (and to a lesser extent in hard copy form), primarily at our own premises (but also at the premises of a limited number of service providers). We take reasonable steps to protect the security of the personal information that we hold.
We use personal information about you:
However we will never sell your information.
GoFetch will not disclose personal information about you to any person except on a confidential basis to contractors that we use in the ordinary operation of our business, such as for data processing, printing or mailing.
At any time you may opt out of receiving any communications from us (other than as required for the operation of our business, e.g. regarding payments by or to you, or regarding organising or completing deliveries).
GoFetch does not disclose personal information to any overseas recipient.
You may request access to personal information we hold about you by writing to GoFetch at the address below. If we hold personal information that you are entitled to access, then within a reasonable period after your request we will provide you with access. If we refuse your request then we will give you a written statement setting out the reasons for the refusal (unless unreasonable to give them), and the process we provide if you wish to complain about the refusal.
We will provide access in the manner you request if it is reasonable and practicable to do so. If it is not reasonable and practicable to provide access in that manner then we will endeavour to provide you with a suitable range of choices as to how you access it (e.g. emailing or mailing it to you).
If you believe that personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, then you may request amendment of it. We will consider if the information requires amendment and respond to you within a reasonable period after your request. If we do not agree that it should be amended, then we will add a note to the personal information stating that you disagree with it and will also give you a written statement setting out the reasons for the refusal (unless unreasonable to give them), and the process we provide if you wish to complain about the refusal.

GoFetch is a platform to connect customers and businesses with independent couriers operating across all Australian state and territory capitals as well as some selected regional centres. We connect customers needing items delivered with Fetchers willing to collect and deliver them.
GoFetch is not a courier company at all. Our Fetchers are not employees. We simply introduce customers needing items delivered with people willing to perform the delivery. We carry out rigorous background checks on our Fetchers, but they can be anyone over 18 with an ABN. GoFetch allows anyone to get things for you - 24 hours a day.
Yes - GoFetch guarantees your items to the value of $200 per fetch. We perform rigorous background checks on our Fetchers, so you know your items are in safe hands. It is also in the Fetcher's interest to do a good job because you rate them! Money is not transferred to the Fetcher until you confirm receipt of the goods and close the job.
GoFetch operates using a peer-to-peer platform and therefore does not require its own bikes, cars or vans. By connecting people who are already on the move with others that need items delivered, we reduce the overall costs of deliveries. We pass these savings directly to you, allowing GoFetch to provide the best value delivery rates possible.
Couriers on the GoFetch platform are able to deliver items and packages of all shapes and sizes. There are fetchers on foot, on bike, in cars and even fetchers with vans.
*Do not that some van deliveries may take longer to match to a fetcher, but our friendly operations team will get right onto it!
GoFetch is now available in all Australian state and territory capitals, as well selected regional centres. By entering your postcode we can tell you if we are in your area or when we are coming!
Yes - anyone over 18 with an ABN (Australian Business Number) can become a Fetcher. ABN's are free to get (http://www.business.gov.au/registration-and-licences/Pages/register-for-an-australian-business-number-abn.aspx)
No - you can fetch on foot, skateboard, bicycle, car, van, truck. Any way you like.
No - you will not be a GoFetch employee. You will have your own ABN and in effect, be your own small business or sole trader. We simply match you with customers needing something delivered.
The moment delivery is confirmed by the customer, the job is closed off and their credit card is debited. The money is transferred to your nominated account. This takes approximately 5 business days.
No. You can do as many as you like! It's super flexible. Just set the GoFetch app to 'active' and you can choose from a list of available jobs - 24 hours a day!
The GoFetch app directs you using GPS so you can use your phone to see where you are located in relation to the pick-up and drop-off points. If you have any troubles, you can open Live Chat with the customer - or even call them.
