Late night alcohol delivery

At JoppaWeb, we believe it is important to showcase new and exciting businesses, which is why we have drawn our attention onto DrinksApp. DrinksApp is a late night alcohol delivery service that is based in the county of Essex, within the UK. This service, and soon to be app, allows its users to purchase alcohol and snacks outside of normal alcohol licensing hours. The best part is, they will even deliver them to your doorstep and there is no minimum order whatsoever. Moreover, if you wanted to order just a single beer or cider, they will be at your disposal. This late night alcohol delivery service is taking the southeast by storm. It is even looking to expand into other areas in the near future.

DrinksApp delivery time varies depending on the time that you place your order. Moreover, we found that order times average around 30 minutes. Furthermore, our delivery driver was wearing a uniform and polite and very courteous of noise. This scored extra scored bonus points with us. Our first order was placed around 3.15am and the driver gave us a call before knocking. He explained that he did not want to cause noise or alarm our neighbours by knocking so late. It is the little things that can make a good service a great one. On first look, DrinksApp seems like it has a promising future ahead of itself.

The rise of convenience apps

Convenience apps are causing quite a movement in the world. Just take a look at the new and exciting services we have obtained over the years. For example, we only need to open the Uber App to request a taxi cab. Moreover, we only head to the Just Eat website when we are in need of a curry. We believe that DrinksApp will grow to become the goto alcohol, tobacco and snack delivery service in the UK. This is a space that has not been tackled in depth and has the potential to be huge. Convenience apps are popular as they are designed to make every day living even easier. Convenience services are designed to enhance the quality of life. DrinksApp does just this.

What problem does DrinksApp solve?

As with most successful businesses, a business must solve an existing problem. DrinksApp accomplishes this by fulfilling a demand and providing a service that is otherwise non existent. With the exception of major cities, most shops and supermarkets in the UK do not sell alcohol past set times. This is usually due to restrictions in their alcohol licensing. This means that if you fancy a glass of wine at night, you would normally have to wait until the morning to replenish. Furthermore, DrinksApp eradicates this problem by delivering snacks, tobacco and alcohol from 9pm until 5am on weekends and until 2.30am on weekdays.

There are many scenarios in which DrinksApp is a saving grace. As we discovered, the convenience alone is a desired attribute and can be very enticing. Furthermore, this service is highly beneficial to those who do not live near or have access to shops.

The founders of the late night alcohol delivery service

When we spoke to the cofounder, Max Smith, he informed us that the service can be used by almost anyone. The service can be accessed to those who are not already intoxicated and are over the age of 18. He went on to say that the service has been well received with positive feedback. Customers range from single mums, who have run out of cigarettes and cannot leave the house, through to cultured hedonists, who wish to keep the party alive.

Max later went on to explain that the DrinksApp motto is “You drink, we drive”. He explained that the motto had a double meaning. Firstly, he said that it was to reassure customers that they can enjoy a drink from the comfort of their living room. Secondly, and more importantly, he explained that many people were still choosing to drive while drunk. By pushing the “You drink, we drive” mantra, Max believes that he can convince people to responsibly enjoy alcohol indoors without having the desire to drive to the shops or from the pub. He hopes that his company, which was cofounded with Nick Metson, can actively reduce the level of drink drive deaths and injuries within the UK.

What products can you find on DrinksApp

Upon investigation, we found that DrinksApp offer over 100 different products and are always expanding their product range. DrinksApp even provide seasonal offers and unlike the name suggests, they are not limited to just drinks.

With this late night alcohol delivery service, you can find a whole range of alcoholic and also non alcoholic products. They even provide bundles and other goodies such as poker sets, cards, beer pong sets and condoms.

As for snacks, you can find an assortment of treats such as chocolate or crisps and they even sell cigarettes, which is ideal for smokers. This late night alcohol delivery service boasts a whole range of drinks to suit almost anyone. Furthermore, you can buy almost anything from beer to Champagne.

One thing we loved was the selection of high end and unusual alcohol products, such as Crystal Head Vodka and Deadhead Rum.

How expensive is it to use DrinksApp?

DrinksApp is a service that runs during anti-social hours so we anticipated that it would be expensive. After reviewing the service and products, we found that the prices were actually really reasonable. Prices for products floated between the cost that you would expect to find in the supermarkets through to the cost that you would expect to find in your local. Moreover, we believe that these prices were good considering that DrinksApp will deliver the item straight to your door in roughly 30 minutes and that there is clear demand during late night hours. We were shocked to find that there was no minimum order, which meant that we could order a single pack of cigarettes or a pot of Pringles if we so desired. Furthermore, we did notice that there was a delivery charge of £5 for any orders under £20 but even this seemed fair at 3 in the morning.

DrinksApp is a convenient service, which we like to look at like a mini bar in your pocket. The ordering process is easy and there is even an online chat service, which is handy if you have any questions.

When is the DrinksApp app launching?

At the moment, the DrinksApp team have not given full confirmation, however they have hinted that the app will be available to download in time for Summer 2018, which is something to look forward to. We are unsure what features the app will have, however we have suspicion that the DrinksApp team will add extra goodies to further improve their service.

Virtual Reality Home Buying

Gone are the days when prospective buyers would have to personally travel to a particular house just to see if it is right for them. This would take time, money, and energy, all of which are of great value, and should not be wasted. Home buying used to be one-dimensional and single-tracked. See, select, and sign.

But this is not the case anymore. With the help of major technological breakthroughs, people can select a home of their liking right from wherever they are, without having to make unnecessary visits to houses they might not even like.

How is this even possible? Because of virtual reality, which has seeped its roots into the domain of home shopping, among other things.

The Concept of Virtual Reality

Reality is whatever surrounds us and shapes our existence. The major question is: can this reality be duplicated and maneuvered according to one’s own liking?

In the past, the answer to that would have been a straight “no.” But now, it is at the very least a maybe, if not a full “yes.”

It is indeed possible these days to experience an artificial simulation of actual physical reality, generated through computers, and accessed through special body gear. This is called “virtual reality.” It’s usually used by gamers and artists, but VR has also entered the commercial sphere.

Home Presentation Like Never Before

Before buying a home comes the viewing, and this is where VR can be incredibly useful. It recreates a property in a digital simulation, and layers it in multiple perspectives.

There is the drone perspective, which is an aerial view of a property, offering complete coverage. Then there is the dollhouse perspective, which minimizes the rooms and the floor plan like in a toy house. A cross-section viewing might also be available in VR.

Homes are no longer just physically frequented: they can be virtually toured too, and from more than one angle, at that.

From a Seller’s Perspective

If you’re a seller who wants a tactical advantage over your competitors, you should definitely go for VR. It beats the traditional methods of enticing consumers and converting them into buyers.

Calling people over for a physical tour of the house is old-school and boring- done and over with. But inviting people over for a virtual tour is something new and thrilling. It’s a great marketing strategy, and gives you an extra branding benefit. It is also a great way to build trust and connections with home buyers, and shines a futuristic light of credibility over you. The more advanced and tech-savvy you are, the better you’ll look in the eyes of prospective buyers.

From a Buyer’s Perspective

If you’re a home buyer, the VR viewing experience can save you from driving all over town, checking out one house after another.

These tours are customisable. You can select the type of viewing, the perspective of the viewing, and the extent of viewing. You can also interact with the avatar of the host, and even click on the spots which you particularly like. The sky is your limit – all you need to do is move your head a particular way while wearing the VR headset.

Moreover, it’s got great practical value. For instance, if you’re planning on installing your Vivint ` home set up and want to know what it would look like in your new home, you can visualize that in VR.

The Way of the Future

With smart cities in the making and the Internet of Things on the rise, it was only a matter of time before something like this came about. Look at how far we’ve come. We are currently standing on the verge of virtuality. VR is the foundation of our very future, after all.

Commercially, it can be used to represent existing houses in a full three-dimensional viewing for the prospective buyers. Not only that, houses which only exist conceptually in the form of an idea can also be artificially constructed as a simulation and toured in VR. All of this spells complete convenience for both buyers and sellers.

Thus, with revolutionary VR, the home shopping experience will never be the same.

Hopefully, you chose the last, because well… you could be facing huge risk to yourself and a huge bill if you decide to break in yourself! If you chose to call a locksmith you are one step in the right direction!

In this article, we will be exploring some of the reasons why you should call a locksmith before you do anything else, from risks to yourself to enhanced costs!

For those who think it is wise to break the door, this section is for you…

Making your own way in!

You have decided to make your own way in, the most common methods are going in through a window, or breaking in via the front/back door. Perhaps you have found a window that is open, usually a small window located at the back of the house, or perhaps an upstairs window. If you choose to attempt to enter in either of these ways you could be putting yourself at grave risk. By choosing an upstairs window you are choosing to enter the building at a height, which increases the chance of a fall. However, if you have chosen to enter the small window at the back of the house, you can quickly find yourself either stuck or breaking the window frame.

Now, both of these ways of entering are not suggested, nor is breaking your door. You should always call a local Locksmith Chelmsford!

 

Calling a local Locksmith Chelmsford!

Perhaps you still need a bit more persuasion to call a Locksmith Chelmsford, what if I was to tell you it’s not as expensive as you may think? A locksmith’s charge is usually just their call out charge, this is because 80% off all lockouts tend to be an unforced entry. This means the locksmith can gain entry without breaking anything, therefore reducing the amount you will need to replace to zero.

A call out charge depends on the time and day of which you call, with weekends and after dark being a higher amount. However, you would be expected to pay between £50 and £150, which is significantly lower than replacing both a door and lock!

 

So what is the benefit of calling a local locksmith?

Calling a locksmith Chelmsford is a going to be your best option if you are looking reliable, fast service! A locksmith that is not based in the area can time it takes for them to reach you. This is a time which you could be spent doing something you need to do. Some locksmiths also charge more if you are out of their area, where a local locksmith would not have that problem.

So what are you waiting for? Call your local locksmith today!
