What’s your go-to delivery service app for food and non-food deliveries? Why?
My top 2 are Grab and Lalamove for non-food.
Okay naman si Grab Express kasi marami silang riders kaya ang bilis makabook usually than Lalamove, mas mahal lang sila in general ng P20-50. Malinis at presentable din usually manamit ang mga Grab motorcycle drivers. Medyo marami lang yung nagdadahilan this ECQ ng “Naputukan po ako ng gulong kaya hindi po ako makakapunta. Pakicancel na lang po.” (This got me once or twice lang, then when I noticed how often it happened and saw one driver who said “nagtutulak siya ng motor dahil naputukan ng gulong” but got from Fairview to Montalban by “walking” in 27 mins, I learned my lesson na. I politely tell them that if they can’t get to me for whatever reason, they should cancel the booking themselves.)
I’m QC-based and mostly Lalamove ang ginagamit ko for South deliveries of non-food items. Napansin ko lang though, mga Lalamove drivers na nakamotor sometimes medyo dugyot, I dunno why. Though very reliable sila for big packages. Mahilig lang magpadagdag and they’re not afraid to ask.
This ECQ, I use Angkas for Rizal deliveries. For some reason, ang dali makakuha ng Angkas drivers for packages going there.
For food deliveries, I used to love Grab Food but since nakita ko na ang laki ng patong nila sa menu price (Hanako price via Grab Food was jacked up to 30% than the menu price) + delivery fee pa + I give tip usually sa driver, I tend to order direct with the restos as much as possible. Though these days, mas nagluluto kami than deliveries, unless hindi na kaya ang cravings. Hihi!
Last na lang, pansin ninyo ba na hindi mahilig magdoorbell ang mga delivery boys? They’ll just text or call to say, “Nandito na po ako.” This is even though kaharap lang nila yung doorbell when they see the huge house number namin.
