Great to be in level 3 and back to the worksite! Hopefully we get word of a shift to level 2 soon, but until then there’s still a fair bit of disruption to our normal way of working.

With the shopping restrictions in place, finding and ordering materials you need for your jobs is completely different. Online orders are the way to go, but figuring out what you need, building your order, sorting out the right pick up or delivery requires a lot more effort than it used to. NextMinutes Live ordering is making it easy for users to get the materials they need on time. Whether it is click-and-collect or a delivery of materials you require, it’s no surprise that we have seen a big lift in online orders being placed directly through NextMinute over the last couple of weeks.

It’s very easy to order materials from a quote you have done, or for a charge-up job, simply by clicking ‘new order’ and selecting what you would like, then print out or email the order straight off to your supplier. One of the best parts is you always have a paper trail stored on the cloud so everything is in one place. Maybe this is a method you will use in the future, even after the lock-down, as it’s so much more efficient than making phone calls that can be forgotten about.

There’s 2 ways to place orders:

  • Generate an order PDF to email through to your supplier
  • For Kiwis, Live order – electronic order directly through to Placemakers (you’ll need a Placemakers account for this)
