How is alcohol delivered to my home?

For at-home alcohol delivery, you can choose between on-demand, delivery within 1-2 hours, or 3-5 day shipping. If you’re planning for an event, shipping is a great option. Since we know how busy everyone’s schedules are, we offer the flexibility of scheduling your orders for delivery at a specific time. Furthermore, you can choose to refill your alcohol orders on a flexible, recurring schedule. Don’t worry, we’ll send you a text to remind you the day before placing your next scheduled order.  Plus, you can cancel your subscription at any time on your account page.

We know you’re all responsible drinkers. Yet, it is still important to have your valid government I.D. ready to show your delivery driver when your order arrives.

Are there any fees associated with alcohol delivery?

In most of our delivery markets, there is a $5 delivery fee. These fees are in place to help our store partners offset costs of delivering your order. The cost of delivery will vary based on location.

Can I tip my delivery driver?

In areas where tips are accepted, we’ll set the default tip to 10%. You can easily edit this value during checkout to your desired amount. If you’d prefer to give a cash tip, you can give it directly to your driver instead of including the tip at checkout. Drivers appreciate your tips and they are integral to the on-demand alcohol delivery process. Make sure to show your appreciation and share a cheers with them! 

How long does delivery take?

In most instances, deliveries take 30–60 minutes. However, these times vary by store and other variables such as time of day, traffic conditions, and quality of order. You will be able to see the expected delivery times and fees for each store on Minibar Delivery’s product pages.
