This tourist season my husband and I learned about and started using delivery services. We have ordered household goods through Amazon for years. We don’t have a Whole Foods near us, so we can’t get fresh food delivered. I’d like to tell you about the services we have used and liked.
- Publix delivery via InstaCart – This one is very fresh in my mind. We just used it today. This was our second use. The first try was a few years ago when we were testing it to help Grandma Dunn get her groceries. Both times were excellent experiences. Today we placed our order for some cleaning products, fresh fruit, and other assorted food for the week. Throughout the “shopping” process, our personal shopper, Tracy, was in touch in case substitutions were needed. Our order was delivered 10 minutes early and was perfect. I would highly recommend this service. For less than $5.00, I was able to stay home and continue doing the laundry.
- Carrabbas Italian Grill delivery – When one of our favorite restaurants started offering delivery, we jumped on board. Our first order had some issues. They have since worked on the service and it, to me, is the cream of the crop for restaurants delivering their own food.
- Door Dash – There were other restaurant delivery services that we have used. They were ok. Door Dash has blown them all away. The selection of restaurants are superior, from extremely fast food to gourmet. Their drivers are prompt and pleasant. We couldn’t be happier.
In this busy world, it is always nice to find services that can help.
