Mobile On line food shopping - delivery

Does anyone do online food shopping?

Does yours come in bags? If not how do you unload?
We have been having our shopping delivered for years but Im rarely in when its delivered. Today I finished work early and was here for the delivery and nothing was in bags - apparently everything is bagless now. No one told me 🙄.
But it took FOREVER for me to unload nearly 200 shopping one by one! The guy just stood there and I said it must really be impacting on their deliveries because of how time consuming it was and he said people usually have a big bag ready - I dont know how that would make a difference as the items would still have to be unloaded.
Im all in favour of saving the planet and recycling and bagless etc but it took ages, I was quickly throwing everything out of the trays onto my living room floor and also the thing that bugged me was everything was just piled onto each other so he had dumped a pack of cans onto my bread and it was flat as a pancake. But anyone who does it - what do you do? Do you have a bag ready? And if so how does that work? Do you just quickly swap it to the bags? He also said he couldve carried it into the kitchen for me but I think that would have felt even more awkward me just frantically unloading there in my kitchen with a stranger stood there.

We get Waitrose. We live up two flights of stairs so they specify we must have bags. That said, sometimes they bring it up in crates.

If you give them any bags you have (not just theirs) you get money off your bill.

Waitrose always bring the food right in to the kitchen.

Last time I have tesco delivered it was bag less, the delivery fellow helped put things on the kitchen table, but like you should feels awkward - when we did waitrose delivery a few years ago it would come in bags - but they couldnt be reused when you have them back to them (they have to bin them for hygiene unfortunately!)

I have an Asda delivery pass and Asda don't give the option to use bags now. They sent plenty of emails beforehand.

I get a couple of big IKEA blue bags ready and a couple of plastic ironing baskets (if they're not full )

I have mine handed over on the front door step but my friend has her's taken into the kitchen.

I have my large bags ( the large, thick bags from Aldi) ready at the door to unload. It doesnt take long and if the driver needs to wait then I dont think it is unreasonable. Son and daughter do have to help with it.
I have Morrisons and have never experienced the heavier shopping being piled on top of the more fragile items. I would contact the customer services if the driver has damaged your shopping.

Its Sainsburys and they used to charge you 40p per bag and yes when we handed bags back we got money off - I just dont remember seeing any notice that they were going bagless.
I feel bad cos obviously we need to be doing as much as we can and I do use bags for life or tote bags instead of getting carrier bags - but I just think that didnt work very well. I was literally flinging things onto my living room floor 1 by 1 and then obviously had to carry them into the kitchen n put them away (while dd sat on the chair eating something she had spotted 🙄

He saw me pull the load out and said is it squashed? Ill refund it straight away cos you could see it was like a door wedge 😂.
Ill have to try and get some big bags and have them ready when the shopping is coming. 👍

They cant think its unreasonable but surely it must be making deliveries take longer.

We just empty the crates onto the kitchen floor quick as we can and hand them back. I dont think it would very be different if it was in bags. If Im on my own, I ask the guys to bring the crates into the kitchen, otherwise the boys do it.
