  • Are they wearing branded uniforms and driving company vehicles? If they do not have an apparent association with the courier company they claim to be working for, this could be because they don’t want to be recognised as posing as a courier. Or if they do in fact work for that company; they do not want to be held responsible should something go wrong during the service.
  • How much experience does the courier have? This isn’t to say “don’t trust them if they can’t prove experience,” but just be wary if it is publicised that the company have lots of experience and time in the industry; yet make mistakes during the service – something may not be right.
  • Have the couriers had background checks and are fully insured? Though a courier company may be confident of documenting this fact online,  ask them again when enquiring about their services.
  • Make sure there is the option to track, rate and leave feedback for your driver. If the company keeps their reviews hidden or there isn’t the opportunity for a service user to leave a rating; it may be telling of their quality of service.

Area Covered

Another thing to do when on the quest to find a courier service perfect for your needs is to make sure they cover the area of the UK or world, necessary. Though it may seem like an obvious piece of advice, make sure you are completely aware of their reach.
