It’s such a bummer to have a fish or shellfish dish in mind only to find that your local supermarket doesn’t offer them. If they do, they’re not as fresh and high-quality as you would like.
The good news is it’s possible to have fresh seafood delivered to your doorstep – thanks to interactive online seafood markets that have access to the best fishmongers in the country.
They also have special packaging and trucks to ensure the quality of your fresh seafood delivery. You know where to go whenever you’re craving sushi and sashimi.
2. Food from quality restaurants
Gone are the days when food delivery services are limited to pizza and greasy fast food items. Now, you can have restaurant-quality meals delivered to your doorstep, thanks to the rise of food delivery apps.
Craving for Korean food? Tenderloin steak? Ramen? Name them – food delivery apps can make your life easier. You can get them hot and fresh from your chosen restaurant without ever leaving your home.
3. Alcoholic drinks
Hosting a huge house party? Alcohol like wine, champagne, beer, single malt, whiskey, liqueur, as well as mixers, garnishes, and party supplies can be ordered online and delivered in a snap.
Whether you’re an alcohol connoisseur who just can’t find your favorite imported booze in your nearby supermarket or you’re just too lazy to pick them up yourself, you can find online stores that’ll speak to your booze-loving soul.
4. Laundry and dry cleaning services
Now, busy adults can get on-demand laundry with a pick-up delivery service in just a few taps away. Having your dirty laundry picked up from your home, washed, and delivered back, fresh and clean, can be a dream come true.
5. Well-prep healthy meals
Everybody wants to stay fit and healthy but let’s admit it: preparing those low-carb, low-sodium, high-protein, nutrient-packed meals at home can be too time-consuming for us busy folks. Luckily, you can find places that make healthy (and yummy) breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks, suited to your diet restrictions and deliver them to your home or office.
Too busy to go to your competitive local supermarket to buy goods? In case you didn’t know, you can shop for groceries online and have them delivered to your doorstep within the day. Check with your local supermarket and see if they have delivery apps that can make your grocery shopping easier and more convenient.
7. Printing ink
Running low on ink? You can save yourself a trip to your local office supply store with quick delivery services that provide cartridges. You may subscribe and save more in the long run.
8. Massage on demand
A door to door massage service on a Saturday afternoon at home? Yes, please! If you’re too sick to walk to a nearby spa, you can find five-star, licensed, vetted and background-checked therapists, available to give you a rubdown. If your favorite spa doesn’t have a massage on-demand home services, mobile apps like Soothe and Zeel will cater to you.
9. “Romantic” items
In case you’re unaware, it’s Valentine’s Day in just a few weeks. Should you get too busy to buy romantic gifts, there are delivery services that will cater to you. And we’re not just talking about flowers, chocolates, wine, and jewelry – we’re referring to lingerie, toys, and other sexy subscriptions you and your partner can enjoy.
10. Personal items you forgot to bring
Did you leave something important at home? It could be your research paper due today or a complete suite for this afternoon’s corporate meeting. Have no fear, same-day express delivery couriers are here.
Like ride-sharing apps, you can set up a pick-up location and delivery location. You can ask someone at home to accommodate the rider who’ll receive your item in the pick-up location and the stuff will be delivered to you in no time.
