When I was a child it was common for most people to have their milk delivered every morning or, at least, most mornings via the milk man. They would often delivery other items – such as cream, orange juice etc in the later years. These services seemed to lose their popularity in the wake of large supermarket shopping and long life milk but I was recently made aware of milk&more.
milk&more is the online persona of the great British institution that is the milkman. Customers can place orders via the easy to use website whilst still experiencing the personal level of service that is unique to the milkman. milk&more even tells customers the name of the milkman who will be making all their deliveries and the days they can receive their order.
But they dont just deliver Milk – Customers can choose from over 250 daily essentials from breakfast goodies and lunchbox staples through to cleaning products and pet food. They can also choose from more than 36 different types of milk including organic, 1% fat, flavoured and speciality milks.
Once signed up, there is no minimum spend as with other delivery services and customers are able to place orders up to 9pm the night before their next scheduled early morning delivery. This late order option coupled with no delivery charges saves customers the inconvenience of popping to their local shop for those inevitable top-ups.
If you are particularly environmentally mind you can also rest assured they are doing their bit for the environment with 50% of Dairy Crest milk floats being powered by electricity.
6 ways milk&more can make your life easier:
- FREE delivery so you can top up whenever it’s convenient
- Order online up to 9pm the night before your next delivery and find your goods waiting for you when you get up
- No minimum order*
- Over 250 daily essentials to choose from, delivered bright and early
- Choose from up to 6 deliveries a week
- No need to book a delivery slot
*No minimum order when you pay by direct debit, otherwise minimum order of £2.50
Thats all the basics dispensed with. I recently gave milk&more a couple of tries and was positively delighted with the service received. I was a little concerned about security, given the amount of small items I had ordered, and did not think they would be safe on my doorstep. But you can actually specify an alternative place – my delivery man placed them out of sight and they were there waiting for me the next morning.
The first order I made I gave them plenty of notice but the second time I decided to challenge their “order up to 9pm and receive the next morning” claim. I actually completed my order at 8.45pm and was absolutely stunned when I opened the door of our shed to find it waiting for me
