Task Runners told to "refrain" from picking up orders from In-n-Out.

 

In-n-Out restaurants in both Medford & Grants Pass will be off limits as a choice for our customers to have us pick up from permanently. This move comes from what was, in effect,  a "cease and desist" letter we received on Dec. 4th and while we are not entirely sure what the real reason behind our being banned, we do know that their claims are unjustified and without merit.

You can read the letter here.

New Plastic Bag Law Takes Effect January 1st

With the signing into law of HB2509 in the Oregon legislature, all single-use plastic bags are now banned in Oregon.

 

This means after December 31st  2019, your groceries or restaurant delivery will either come in paper bags (for a small charge), or no bags at all.  Some stores have already eliminated plastic from their checkout areas in preparation for the new law to take effect. 

There are plastic bags that are not affected, such as those without handles (produce bags, or for bulk food or meat), as well as any bag used for medication and reusable plastic bags that are at least 4 mil thick and have handles. Other bags not affected are trash bags, ziploc bags, floral wraps, bags for baked goods, as well as bags for pet waste.

Once the law goes into effect, stores/restaurants and other retailers must charge at least 5 cents a bag, but could be higher, depending on the store/restaurant. 

Task Runners will start reminding customers after the new year if they wish their delivery come in paper bags, if they are available.  We will not supply bags, although we will have our own containment available for transporting items to and from our vehicle.

New "Card Not Present" Policy To Start Immediately

All credit card transactions, where the cardholder's ID cannot be verified with the card being used, will be subject to a "Code 10 Authorization" request to the cardholder's issuing credit card company, before the order is started. Once verification has been established, Task Runners can then begin the delivery process. 
 

This protective measure will prevent transactions from unauthorized card users, as well as reduce fraudulent chargeback claims. 

 

This affects all card transactions for out-of-state orders, out-of-area orders, first-time card users, and anytime card, ID, or BOTH will be unavailable for inspection upon arrival with the delivery. 

Customers using PayPal (through its own payment portal) to pay for their order will not be affected by this policy.
