How to safely order Food or Groceries Home Delivery

Most of you now may be asking themselves whether it’s safe to order food and groceries and ask for home delivery or not. The answer is yes as long as you take the necessary precautions. In spite of the endless efforts delivery service providers are making to adapt to the current situation and to stop the spread of the virus, such as switching to the contactless drop-offs method, customers need to be very careful too.

If food or grocery home delivery services are one of your favorites, here are some tips that can be followed in order to end up with a safe shipping process.

Use Delivery Instructions Tab to leave comments

While the delivery instructions section is normally dedicated to address specifications and details, you can start using this part to post your delivery comments. In this case, you can, for example, ask the driver to leave your order at the door of the house or drop it somewhere else near the door while at the same time sending out a photo of where it was put. Avoid meeting the driver in person in order not to breach the social distancing instructions.

Wash your hands after touching the order

After taking your order, avoid touching your face. The first thing to do after getting the food or groceries inside is washing your hands for a long period of time to make sure all germs are killed. If you are ordering ready-to-eat food, make sure you take it out of the takeout package or box and pour it on a clean plate. As for groceries, you can clean purchased products with disinfectant wipes. Make sure you also clean all surfaces that had contact with your order.  And, of course, you need to get rid of all the outer bags that may contain many germs and bacteria.

Go for Online Payment

While making an online order, privilege online payments and avoid cash payment at delivery. If, for whatever reason, you find yourself obliged to pay by cash, make sure you have the right amount with you. This is particularly to avoid having the driver handing the change to you. It’s very important to avoid dealing with physical cash to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The idea is to avoid any cash or credit card exchange with the delivery person, which may increase the risk of being contaminated.
