late night alcohol delivery

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.
