How Ordering Lobsters Online Works
You’ve found lobster for sale online, and you’re ready to order. Now what? Luckily, we are well-acquainted with the online ordering process for lobster and other types of seafood. This 4-step guide will have you clicking “Place Order” in no time.
- Pick Your Seafood: Online seafood retailers usually offer live lobster, lobster meat, or lobster tails. Choose which type of lobster cut works best for your needs. Usually, live lobster works as an entrée and lobster meat is great for bisque, pasta, or other lobster dishes.
- Pick Amount of Seafood: Use our handy guide to help you figure out which size lobster works for your order. From there, you can decide how much lobster you will need to feed your group.
- Schedule the Delivery: Ordering in advance? Great planning! If not, many seafood retailers offer next-day shipping. Check for cut-off times to see how late in the day you can place a next-day order..
- Unbox and Cook: Try to be home at the time of delivery so that you can immediately transport the lobster to the refrigerator. Wrap the lobster in moist newspaper until it’s time to cook. Read our cooking and cleanup tips so that you’re ready for a lobster dinner.
Buying Fresh Makes a Difference
In our opinion, you shouldn’t buy just any old lobster for sale online. Nothing compares to the taste of fresh lobster. Though freezing methods are better and better at preserving some of a lobster’s original freshness, the only way to really experience the distinct Maine lobster taste is to order fresh.
Using the Quality Seafood Delivery Database
We at Quality Seafood Delivery have put a lot of hours – probably too many – into building out price grids for various lobster sizes. Using data sourced directly from these lobster companies, we are able to provide one of the easiest tools available for lobster price comparison. Below, we’ll walk you through the grid using Lobster Anywhere as an example.
In the first column, you’ll see the company’s name. These names are linked. Depending on which company you choose, the link will either direct you to the company’s website or to our profile on them. Both of these will provide invaluable information about how the company sources their lobster, how long they’ve been around, and whether they have the lobster for sale online that you need.
In the next column, you’ll find the minimum number of lobster needed per order. Most companies that calculate shipping at the end of the process don’t have a minimum, which means you’ll likely see “1” in this space. If a company provides a flat shipping rate, the number will likely be 2 or more. This helps them better understand their shipping costs and guarantee that a purchase will allow them to break even on shipping and handling.
If you look in the next column, you’ll see the “price per pound” category. This allows customers to see the difference in per-pound price across companies. However, this number can be misleading. Often, companies that provide “free” shipping will have a much higher per-pound cost, as shipping prices are incorporated into the price. As a result, we’ve provided another comparison tool.
The column to the right is the “total price for 4 lobsters” column, which provides the best point of comparison. We calculated this price to include shipping and additional costs. If you’re looking for the best bargain, this is the column to use.
