If you are confident with using your computer, tablet or smartphone to go online, there are a wide range of companies where you can do your online shopping and have the goods delivered to your door. These deliveries can range from everyday supermarket shopping to furniture or larger items.
All of the big supermarkets have a home shopping delivery service for groceries and other goods which you can access on-line:-

* These supermarkets have a delivery subscription offer, where for a set subscription fee per month, as long as you order above their minimum order value the delivery would not be an extra charge (Please check the details of the offer from the individual supermarkets offers as they may have restrictions)
