Catie sez… “Don’t have a delivery disaster!”

Updated: Mar 3

I really see delivery workers as heroes. They pass down our streets and roads on missions to our homes, bringing food, medicine, supplies, almost anything you need. Not always an easy job.


Bad things can happen during a delivery shift and I thought of a solution for one that’s particularly nasty: dropping the debit machine. No matter how good or bad your day is going, it will come to a sudden halt if your payment unit hits the ground and smashes into pieces.


True story: One busy Friday evening, a pizza delivery worker with hands full rushed out to the car, put the POS unit on the roof, opened the door and put the payload inside, then got in and started off. Long story short, the unit slid off and got run over. Here are the forensics:

An extreme case, but in any machine-ground altercation, the ground almost always wins.


That’s why I designed the Canuck Covers Delivery Solution.


First, the best POS Protective Device Cover on the market wraps snugly around the unit, its perfectly fitted nylon shell providing enough cushion to reduce damage risk and, just as importantly, keeping all the tiny parts from scattering.

The cover’s transparent PVC face permits full visibility of the display and pin pad while protecting them and the inner electronics from cleansers, liquids, dirt, oils, etc. The payment unit is completely functional for inserts, swipes, taps, and printing, and is quick and easy to clean with no need to change it.


Sure, maybe you’re thinking even our Canuck Cover Deluxe wouldn’t have saved that little iWL250 unit in the pics. But its partner, the Canuck Carry Case just might have. Remember that the delivery person had hands full? That directly resulted in the unit going onto the roof when the car door had to be opened and all that hot pizza could get stuffed in for delivery to hungry customers. That wouldn’t have happened if it were safe in its bag.

The Canuck Carry Case holds any mobile payment unit along with its charger, two rolls of printer paper, and more. It even has a handy front pocket for receipts. Here’s the kicker: it has a long, adjustable shoulder strap so you carry all your payment stuff in one place right against your body. Look Ma, no hands! And that, right there, reduces the risk of a delivery disaster.


Our delivery service customers love it, and their customers do, too! (We’ve heard their comments. 😊)
