Delivery man

delivery man es una persona que reparte a la casa o oficina cosas mandadas. Puede ser algo grande como una nevera pero tambien puede
ser una pizza. Aquí dicen 'un señor que hace delivery al domicilio' pero sé que ese uso no es oficial.

Estoy de acuerdo con "repartidor". Sin embargo, en algunos casos, usaría "fletero". Por ejemplo, compras un refrigerador en la mañana y en la tarde te lo entregan en tu casa. A esos hombres, no diría "repartidores" sino "fleteros", pero también es posible no estoy en lo correcto.

Also: home delivery = entrega a domicilio
