How to get an online supermarket delivery in Liverpool
4 years ago
Supermarket delivery slots are scarce right now let’s be hones, but all UK supermarkets are working hard to try and get everyone fed as soon as they can. Here are some tips on how to get one and on what you can do, if you can’t.
Supermarket delivery, two words on everyone’s lips right now.
Remember when you thought you’d struck gold if you got a Glastonbury ticket? Or beating thousands in the phone queue for a Drake gig left you delirious for days?
Now it’s supermarket delivery slots that’ve become the single most sought-after item.
BUT don’t panic!
The big names are doing all they can to make sure the people who need them most can be sure of a slot and remember, there’s almost 100 local companies waiting to get goods to your doorstep so you’ll certainly not go hungry.
So, here’s how the main stores are dealing with their deliveries; and lovely Liverpool companies are providing all the essentials – and more – to keep your spirits up.
Sainsbury’s says they’re working with the government to prioritise the nation’s most vulnerable people for supermarket delivery. Elderly customers DO still have access to available slots and the supermarket says they’re doing their very best to offer delivery slots to as many people as possible: “And we would urge everyone to keep trying.”
As of Wednesday, March 25, Sainsbury’s had proactively contacted 270,000 customers who had already given them information that meant they could identify them as elderly or vulnerable, and also booked slots for 115,000 elderly and vulnerable customers.
Purchases of grocery products are limited to a maximum of three of each item and a maximum of two on the most popular products including toilet paper, soap and UHT milk.

In order to reach more customers, with more deliveries, Tesco is limiting the number of items shoppers can put in their online shopping basket to 80.
By introducing the new limit, it says it can get more orders onto each van, allowing them to release significantly more delivery slots over the coming weeks as part of its efforts to ensure all customers can get the essentials they need.
This is in addition to the limits of 3 items per product already in place online and in store.
To free up slots for more vulnerable people it’s asking those who can more safely go into stores to do so, and it is prioritising slots for people identified by the government as vulnerable and who don’t have their own support network.
Morisons is expanding home delivery and introducing new ways of delivering groceries and more slots for customers, which it says will also help vulnerable people and those affected by the virus. That includes:
* A new range of simple-to-order food parcels, including options for vegetarians.
* Making more delivery slots available to customers both through Morrisons.com (it now has a wait system) and the Morrisons Store on Amazon Prime Now. And it says it will use 100 more stores to pick customers’ shopping over the next weeks.
* Launching a customer call centre for orders to be taken over the phone so that people who do not shop online can still order food. That should be released by the end of this week.
* It’s recruiting 2,500 pickers and drivers to support expanded home deliver.
Asda says delivery times vary depending on which store or depot your order is coming from and its four-week period for advanced booking slots remains unchanged.
Any products across food, health and hygiene are limited to 3 per person.
All deliveries are contactless and it has reinstated the use of plastic bags for hygiene reasons.
It is also working with the government to identify the most vulnerable so it can offer them priority delivery slots.
