If you're someone who could benefit from a bit of extra money at the end of the week, you might be looking for a job that you can perform occasionally. You might not have previously considered working for a liquor delivery service, but if you live in an urban area, this can be a smart choice. In addition to offering competitive wages, liquor delivery services allow you to schedule your own hours — and the possibility of tips each time you drop off an order can make a shift lucrative. To excel in this field, you'll ideally possess these attributes.
Knowledge Of The City
If you gain employment through a liquor delivery service, you're essentially becoming a professional driver — and this means that it's critical for you to have a solid knowledge of how to get around the city. While apps and maps can, of course, help, they can also take time. When customers are waiting for their orders, it's best if you know how to get to certain areas without having to spend much time looking things up. You'll especially be an asset if you've worked as a driver in another capacity, whether it was as a courier or even as a ride-sharing driver.
Ability To Multitask
When your shift is busy, you won't simply be picking up an order of alcohol and delivering it to a customer, and then repeating this process. Rather, you'll be picking up multiple orders and taking them to their appropriate buyers. Doing so requires that you possess an ability to be proficient at multitasking. You'll need to not only keep each of the orders organized in your vehicle to ensure that every customer gets the right products, but also be able to organize the best order in which you reach the customers promptly.
An Understanding Of Related Products
It's useful if you have a solid grasp of alcoholic beverages if you wish to work as a delivery driver in this industry. For example, sometimes, you'll need to pick up other products that complement these drinks. You want to be sure that you pick products that are suitable. For example, if you're picking up some stalks of celery at a local supermarket for a client who has ordered vodka and Caesar mix and will obviously be making some caesars, you'll want to select a stalk of celery that is green and lush, rather than one that is yellow and wilted.
