Mail Order Steak

Ordering groceries and having them delivered to your doorstep is not a new fangled notion. People have actually been doing it for years. Home grocery delivery began in the early 1900's, when customers phoned the grocery store with their order, and the goods were delivered as soon as the clerk assembled everything together. This same convenience applied to the local butcher as well. If a customer wanted a particular cut of meat, all they had to do was phone the butcher with their order, and they would have fresh meat for dinner. This exact same process continues today, only on a much larger scale. If you want to order steaks and have them delivered by mail, you can do so easily either over the phone, or via the Internet. Here are some tips for ordering mail order steaks:

  • Research. Find a reputable butcher by searching online, asking acquaintances for recommendations, or even looking through magazines. A great place to start however, is by speaking with your friends and relatives. Perhaps you've eaten dinner with a friend or relative, and they've indicated they purchased the meat through mail order. If you liked the meat, simply order from the same place.
  • Reputation. Read reviews online, in magazines, and listen to what your friends say about their experiences with steak vendors.
  • Quality. Consider quality, taste, and added ingredients. Perhaps the vendor lists customer reviews. If so, read the reviews to see what customers have to say regarding the quality of meats offered. If you are allergic to certain ingredients, make sure that there are no hidden additives.
  • Total cost. Determine shipping costs before ordering. Meat is heavy, so shipping costs may be high. Consider ordering from one vendor over another if they offer free or reduced shipping.
  • Returns? Does the vendor have a return policy? If you are dissatisfied with local meat purchases, you are guaranteed a refund. The same should apply for mail order steak vendors. Check their return policy in case you are not satisfied with the product.

Prior to purchase, it is wise to compare different vendors to get the best price for what you want. While the cost of the product at one vendor might be higher than the other, he may offer free or reduced shipping, lowering the overall cost of the order.
