The Town Center CID recognizes local companies who are reaching out, fulfilling needs, and aiding their neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis. These are just a few of their stories:
Bungii is a delivery service focused on same-day and on-demand shipping of large items for individuals and companies. Bungii drivers will deliver items like mattresses, couches, dining sets, patio sets, grills, and even loads of mulch, pine straw, or rocks, as well as other large household items. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been able to be a part of aiding the supply chain needs for both business partners and consumers who use their service. As a shipping and delivery company, they fall under the “Essential Business” provision and have been called upon to help deliver PPE from medical supply distributors, essential products, and shelf-stable goods to local charities. Bungii says it even has seen an increase in outdoor supplies and DIY materials for home improvement projects.
Since the coronavirus pandemic began, the company has adapted to meet the needs of the communities that it serves, says owners Harrison Proffitt and Ben Jackson. As both its corporate and local business partnerships continue to evolve and expand, so do the needs for efficient and reliable alternatives to same day/next day delivery to Bungii customers. With the need for commercial delivery at an all-time high, they say, Bungii has been able to provide affordable solutions during an unprecedented supply chain crisis.
Recently, the company was able to utilize its delivery services to support the Center for Children and Young Adults (CCYA) in Marietta. Bungii purchased non-perishable goods, such as bottled water and toilet paper, and delivered them to the CCYA.
One of Bungii’s core values is “do the right thing,” which was exemplified in its decision to assist the CCYA. As the demand for delivery increases, the company hopes to continue to be a positive resource for our communities. Bungii has several partners in retailers located in the Town Center CID and beyond in Cobb County.
