Do you have something you need delivered ASAP? A same-day courier service is likely the best option for you.
Why use a same-day courier?
Same-day courier services can be vital for companies like bakeries and florists. However, offering speedy delivery in any industry can put you on the front foot, and means that customers are more likely to choose your business.
But what should you look for in choosing a same-day courier service to make sure your customer isn’t disappointed? Here are some things to consider:
Are they fast enough?
The reason you are choosing a same-day courier service is the speed, so you need to choose a courier who can get your item there on time. Same-day courier services are able to deliver your item so quickly because they cut out a lot of the stages that normal delivery packages go through, such as going to a depot for sorting where they may sit for a few days.
Acts of god aside – and mistakes may happen occasionally – you should choose a courier who has a track record for delivering pronto.
What is their geographic scope?
Whether looking for a same day courier Nottingham, or a super speedy long-distance service, you need to make sure that the company delivers to the desired geographic area in the requisite timeframe. Some courier services like All About Freight, for example, will be able to deliver across the country.
Do you enjoy your interactions with the company? Are they transparent about expectations, costs and risks? Are they friendly and polite, and does this extend to the couriers that pick up and deliver your item? If your delivery needs are complex are they flexible and understanding? If not, then you don’t need to give them your business.
Decisions on cost will in part need to factor in whether you or your customer are paying for delivery. But in either scenario, you will want to get the cheapest price possible. It’s a good idea to try and get at least three quotes.
