What would you think if I told you that there's an app with which you can order anything from any shop in your city and have it delivered to your home in a matter of minutes? Absolutely amazing, specially if you're not too used to all this modern technology business.
Well, that's basically what Glovo - Delivery from any store does for you: stay at home, choose a product category to buy and select a nearby store or shop. Once you've made your choice, a glover, a friendly guy whose job is to make your lazy you much happier, will go to your house and deliver whatever you've ordered: some spring rolls from The Great Wall of China, a huge cake from the patisserie on the corner or a six-pack from the off-license. But what if you only want someone to pick up the keys you left around last night's crush? The also do it! Payments are made via the app and you'll only be charged once the product has been received and you've signed the delivery.
A solution to that feeling of "wish somebody could bring me a pizza".
Although you describe exactly what you want to purchases, you can also search for it in the app's menus. You'll be able to browse through the following product categories:
- Snacks and drinks.
- Fast food.
Glovers are independent people with plenty of free time, similar to Uber drivers, but with a motorbike or bicycle. You also can become a member of your city's glovers by getting in touch with the customer attention service by email.
How much is it going to cost me?
It isn't too expensive, but obviously more than if you went and got it yourself. The majority of places offer a list of products with their prices to which you'll have to add the delivery expenses, and a nighttime service charge if it's late. If you can't find what you're looking for you can add a description or even a photo. What if you don't want to have it delivered yet? Just choose an estimated delivery time.
Are there any limitations?
Taking into account that the Glove deliverers move around on bicycle or motorbike, they can only carry about 9 kilos and objects with dimensions around 40x40x30 cm. In certain cities, glovers are available 24/7 whilst in others, they're only available until 11 p.m. And don't forget that you can only buy if the store or restaurant is open, don't expect them to break into anywhere just for you.
