1) Speedy Booze

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

Speedy Booze

Overall Honest Review: 9.2/10

Speedy Booze is located in Toronto and provides 2-3 hours same-day delivery which allows them to be one of the most competitive liquor delivery companies in Toronto.

With over 6000 liquor beverages to choose from on their Shopify store or app, no company has come close to Speedy Booze.

Delivery Service Rating: 7.5/10

Most of the negative reviews Speedy Booze receives is their late times. While they promise 2-3 hour delivery keep in mind that traffic and high volume deliveries will easily cause a delay.

I can understand 2-3 hour delivery is great for marketing, but it can also lead to negative Google reviews.

Price Rating: 7.7/10

They charge around 20-30% markup over their products which they purchase through LCBO. On top of this there is around a $9.99 delivery service fee which may change depending on the delivery order size.

Customer Service: 9.3/10

When you contact customer service either through Google messaging or when you give them a call, they respond fairly quickly.

From my experience their customer service has been great, never rude or disrespectful however their delivery service is a different topic.

Product Selection Rating: 9.2/10

Speedy Booze offers over 6000 beer, liquor and spirit alcoholic beverages which you can order directly from their online store.

Most alcohol companies doesn’t offer this option as you have to give them a call to place an order based on stock.

2) LCBO Home Delivery

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

Overall Honest Review: 9/10

Who better to work with than LCBO themselves.

You get real time update on product stocks, you are working with a fairly reputable company when it comes to service, and no extra costs on products.

The main downfall is you have to wait 3-5 days for your delivery at $11.95 (+tax). 

Delivery Service Rating: 8.1/10

Most of the negative reviews Speedy Booze receives is their late times. While they promise 2-3 hour delivery keep in mind that traffic and high volume deliveries will easily cause a delay.

I can understand 2-3 hour delivery is great for marketing, but it can also lead to negative Google reviews.

Price Rating: 9.1/10 – $$ (Moderate)

There is no extra markup when you deal with LCBO directly. This makes them the cheapest option.

All the other 3rd-party companies order from LCBO or other regulated alcoholic stores. This makes them far cheaper and a good delivery fee of $11.95.

Customer Service: 7.1/10

Customer service is not the best, and its quite hard to get a hold of someone.

When you company LCBO’s customer service vs. an independent company, you may get better and more immediate responses.

Product Selection Rating: 9.2/10

LCBO carries almost every alcoholic beverage you can find in Canada.

They are always restocking, and I’ve never had an issue trying to find a beverage I’ve wanted to try.

3) Get Runner

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

Get Runner Website

Overall Honest Review: 8.8/10

I would place Get Runner as the second best 3rd-party alcohol delivery company in Toronto.

They offer competitive services compared to Speedy Booze, competitive delivery (currently $5, although this may change), and same-day delivery.

Delivery Service Rating: 7.5/10

Most of the negative reviews Speedy Booze receives is their late times. While they promise 2-3 hour delivery keep in mind that traffic and high volume deliveries will easily cause a delay.

I can understand 2-3 hour delivery is great for marketing, but it can also lead to negative Google reviews.

Price Rating: 7.7/10

They charge around 20-30% markup over their products which they purchase through LCBO. On top of this there is around a $9.99 delivery service fee which may change depending on the delivery order size.

Customer Service: 9.3/10

When you contact customer service either through Google messaging or when you give them a call, they respond fairly quickly.

From my experience their customer service has been great, never rude or disrespectful however their delivery service is a different topic.

Product Selection Rating: 9.2/10

Get Runner doesn’t have the largest product selection, as it stands they delivery more than 3000 products.

The reason for this is mainly due to the option to get other products such as snacks, pantry, pharmacy drugs, and much more delivered.

They don’t exclusively specialize in alcohol which can limit your options.

4) The Beer Guy

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

Overall Honest Review: 8.6/10

The Beer Guy is a great alcohol delivery alternative to the ones mentioned above. They provide an online store where you can order directly, along with an app.
 
Although it was difficult to find how long their delivery times were, based on customer reviews it seems to be within 2-hours of your order.

Delivery Service Rating: 7.8/10

Based on online reviews their delivery times are within 2-hours but there are a lot of complaints stating you are most likely to receive it on the same-day.

Price Rating: 7.7/10 – $$ (Moderate)

Pricing is more on the high end similar to what you would expect visiting Speedy Booze’s website.

Customer Service: 6.6/10

Although they have a strong Google rating with over 350+ reviews as of 2020, many complaints are around the negative customer service experiences.

Customers are complaining about late deliveries and not much response of apologies from the customer service end.

Product Selection Rating: 9.5/10

The Beer Guy has more than 4000 beer, liquor and wine products to choose from along litre size and bulk purchase options.

5) Door Dash

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

Overall Honest Review: 8.2/10

DoorDash is a very well known food delivery company in Canada, but what most people don’t know is they also deliver alcohol along with your food delivery.
 
DoorDash picks up alcohol from your favorite restaurants, but at times this can be seen as more expensive on top of what DoorDash charges for delivery.

Delivery Service Rating: 7.5/10

DoorDash may not have the best delivery service as it can depend on how long the restaurant takes, but they are transparent with app notifications and tracking details.

Price Rating: 7.7/10 – $$ (Moderate)

My personal opinion is all the 3rd-party food delivery companies overcharge and underpay their drivers.

My suggestion is unless you are order alcohol with your food, order through liquor delivery services which specialize.

Customer Service: 9.3/10

DoorDash has poor customer service along with companies like UberEats.

Its quite difficult to get a hold of them, especially afterhours where these types of deliveries are most common.

Product Selection Rating: 9.2/10

DoorDash has a product selection which is limited by the restaurants you order from.

Especially during lockdowns food delivery exploded forcing the majority of restaurants to leverage these 3rd-party food delivery services.

6) In A Buggy

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

In A Buggy

Overall Honest Review: 8.0/10

In A Buggy is a grocery & food delivery company which also delivers beer cases.
 
If you are looking for more variety, probably not the best option to go with unless you are looking to chug down some beers along with your grocery delivery.

Delivery Service Rating: 7.5/10

In A Buggy has decent delivery service based on customer reviews. They have a fairly strong reputation so they take customer service a bit more serious than many other 3rd-party sites.

You can expect delivery within 1-2 hours depending on your location and traffic.

Price Rating: 7.7/10 – $$ (Moderate)

In A Buggy has competitive pricing and is worth it if you are looking to order grocery on top of a case of beer.

Customer Service: 9.3/10

You can contact In A Buggy’s customer service if you want to file a complaint such as wrong order or late delivery.

7) Uber Eats

Service Areas: Greater Toronto Area

Uber Eats - Alcohol Delivery

Overall Honest Review: 7.9/10

UberEats is a well known food & alcohol delivery company, but it is also known to charge ridiculous fees.

UberEats truly only makes sense if you are ordering for a group or ordering a large meal. Along with this meal UberEats can deliver alcohol along with it.

Delivery Service Rating: 7.5/10

Uber Eats has decent delivery times. From my experience they’ve always run late, but I understand this is not 100% in their control.

They have to rely on the restaurant to get the customers order on time, and then on top of that they have to rely on an efficient driver.

Price Rating: 7.7/10 – $$ (Moderate)

Uber Eats I find is slightly more expensive than DoorDash. Most 3rd-Party food delivery companies are expensive and only makes sense when ordering a large order.

Customer Service: 9.3/10

When you contact customer service either through Google messaging or when you give them a call, they respond fairly quickly.

From my experience their customer service has been great, never rude or disrespectful however their delivery service is a different topic.

Product Selection Rating: 9.2/10

Uber Eats is limited to the restaurants product selection. This is an advantage over liquor delivery companies who have to carry inventory and rely on liquor stores who have poor hours of operation.
