    How much time to deliver pizzas.

    I would like you to suppose that you are making an order for pizzas) over the phone. You want to ask the person who is on the other side that how much time will he take to deliver your pizzas? So what would you say?

    "In how much time can I expect my pizzas to be delivered?"

    "In how much time will you be delivering our pizzas?"

    "How much time are you going to take to bring our order?"

    "How much time should we expect before our order gets delivered?"

    "How much time do you take to place order?"

    Please check.

    Re: How much time to deliver pizzas.

    We are far more likely to ask:


    How long before they arrive?
    When can you deliver?
    When will they arrive?

    Re: How much time to deliver pizzas.

    1. "In how much time can I expect my pizzas to be delivered?"
    2. "In how much time will you be delivering our pizzas?"
    3. "How much time are you going to take to bring our order?"
    4. How much time should we expect before our order gets delivered?"
    5. How much time do you take to place order?"

    1 and 2: Unnatural
    3: Grammatically correct. It suggests impatience.
    4 and 5: Not correct.

    Okay​. It is better to keep it simple.
    It's always better to keep it simple when you're at the learning stage.

    Re: How much time to deliver pizzas.

    "What's your delivery time?"

    Normally, when I call for pizza for delivery they will inform you of the expected delivery. If it is abnormally long, they will even tell you before you order.

    I'd like to place an order for delivery.

    OK, but we're running about an hour and a half for delivery right now.

    Oh, what if I come pick it up?

    30 minutes.

    Let's do that.

    (This presumes that you are using the delivery out of convenience, not necessity.)
