Why Buying Lobster Online is Better
Buying anything online can be a hassle, but when it comes to seafood, it can be the easiest option. This might come as a surprise, but it’s true: buying seafood online, directly through a company, will almost always provide a higher-quality product.
Think about it. When you buy lobster from the grocery store tank, what do you know about that crustacean? Where was it sourced? How long has it been in captivity? These questions are important to understanding how good a lobster will taste. If you can’t answer them, you don’t truly know what your money is buying.
By contrast, when you purchase fresh lobster for sale online, you have a more direct view into how the lobster gets to your dinner place. Plus, by buying directly from a provider, you support a smaller business instead of a large grocery chain.
We know that buying lobster online often means spending a little bit more per pound. But when weighed against the quality of product and convenience of doorstep delivery, we think it’s worth the extra money. Plus, most of these companies have robust customer service arms, meaning that if your delivery is in any way unsatisfactory, you’ll likely get a refund, an apology, or both.
How to Buy Fresh Lobster for Sale
We know that finding and buying fresh lobster for sale can be tricky. Below, we’ve outlined a few steps to take to ensure you get the best product possible.
- Be strategic when you choose your provider. Depending on what you’re ordering, you’ll want to find a lobster company that provides what you need at the best cost. We recommend using our lobster grids to compare prices. Specifically, look in the column titled “price for 4 lobster.” This calculation takes into consideration how much lobster will cost once shipping is included.
- Find someone reputable. Not all lobster companies are created equal. When choosing a provider, look for companies that are transparent about sourcing and costs. You should also look for sustainability accreditation and any reviews from former customers that might be helpful.
- Order at the best time. The lobster season shifts over the course of the year, which means prices will fluctuate depending on when you buy. Peak season typically runs from mid-September through mid-November, then again from April through early June. These are the times when you’re likely to get the best price for the best buy.
