Why Order An Online Takeaway?
Gone are the days when we used to have to go through lots of different take away leaflets that have been delivered through our door (and cluttering up our home) just to find our ideal take away. Often the leaflets would be the same and would not reflect the diverse nature of what is available. Indeed, you may have ended up with several leaflets for pizza when what you really wanted was a Thai take away, for example!
The internet has changed things in recent times which means we all get more choice from a staggering array of options! The ease of ordering at the touch of a button has revolutionized the way we order, and indeed what we order, which means we get far more choice. Ordering online allows us to split the payment with our family and friends too and makes the entire process a whole lot easier!
Phoning for a take away and going through the order is often inconvenient and with apps available on our mobile phones we can even order on the bus, on our way home, from a long day at work! There are no leaflets to look through and we can easily view our choice of menus on online.
When ordering an online take away we are always required to enter our post code. Within a few seconds a box appears which will either say yes, you are within our delivery area, or no you aren’t! This saves us going through an online order only to be rejected at the end because we are not within the right catchment area. Indeed this is typical of how advanced the internet has become and only demonstrates the ease of ordering online compared to going through the hassle of ringing our order through.
And for those that think ordering online means a longer time before our delicious take away is delivered, are wrong! There is no difference to the delivery time and most take away sites will give you an indication of how long before our delicious food will arrive. In fact, most places will send you a confirmation e-mail or text message to let you know that your order is being processed or has been accepted. There are some that will even let you know when your order has been despatched! This only creates ease and simplicity and takes the strain out of wondering where you food is!
Different Types of Take Away Available
We have looked at how easy it is to order online and we know we don’t have to go through lots of leaflets. So, what type of take away can we order online? The simple answer to this is that there is a huge selection which is not just restricted to the Pizza, Indian or Chinese although of course there is nothing wrong with any of these! These days of course you do not even need to go to individual restaurant sites – you can literally find all your favourite food from all your favourite places in one spot which is another stress free benefit of ordering online.
The internet and indeed most take away out lets and restaurants have cottoned on to the fact that people prefer ordering online which means they can offer a greater and more diverse choice! The options available are staggering and include Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Greek, Turkish, Lebanese
and even burgers and fish n chips! Many of the outlets also allow you to make special requests online – perhaps you want more chili on your noodles for example. And of course there are some fantastic online deals to be had depending on how much you spend which means you save money! Even though there is usually a minimum order spend to qualify for delivery, most places will still deliver if you are under this threshold and only charge a very small fee.
Discounts and Savings!
The other fantastic thing about ordering online, apart from the ease of course, is that many take away sites, including those very popular sites that list all of your favourite restaurants, offer discounts. Indeed, if you sign up for an account, you may find that special discount codes will be e-mailed to you for the next time you order. These can offer fantastic savings and is a benefit of being a loyal customer. Take away outlets and restaurants are keen to keep their customers in a market that offers such diversity!
One of the best things about ordering online is being able to see other people’s experience’s through reviews. This allows us to make an informed choice before we order, particularly if we are ordering from somewhere new. Clearly the more positive the review, the more likely we are to order and the reviews include things such as quality and delivery times which are two important factors when ordering online. Naturally you can also leave your own review and highlight your own experiences which will only serve to assist others before they make a choice!
