Courier companies and services are on the up in the UK, as a way of sending mail nationally and internationally. Many people, both professionally and personally, are enlisting courier help to resolve their delivery needs. There are a variety of reasons for this! Read on to find out more.
1. Save Time and Money
Courier services are able to provide tracking numbers to customers awaiting delivery, making them more reliable than traditional postage services. Whilst tracked options are available when using Royal Mail, these are often at a much higher price than regular postage. Additionally, a failed delivery means that parcels often need to be picked up from the closest Post Office depot – at the expense and inconvenience of your customer. Using a courier service means that delivery can be arranged for more specific times, or delivery can be re-attempted at no inconvenience to your customers. Additionally, courier services will pick up products from your door – meaning no constant trips to the Post Office to weigh and send packages.
Courier services always use tracking numbers, and often have apps or services where you can see where drivers are, what they are called, and the exact estimated time of drop-off. This means a more reliable service, where items are less likely to go missing.
3. Speedy Delivery
Courier services are the only delivery services out there that can offer incredibly fast delivery times. Do you want your customer to be able to place an order at 5pm, and have the item following morning? A courier service can manage that. Even better, Fox’s Pacier Sprints can also offer a same-day delivery service!
4. Out-of-hours and Above-and-Beyond Service
Often, courier services will have customer support that extends outwith the usual 9am-5pm timings of the Post Office. We offer a service that is easy to use, straightforward to book, and reliable. If you forgot to send that Birthday present and it needs to be across the country today? We can sort that for you. Whether it’s an A4 piece of paper or 6 pallets of dumbbells – no job is too big or small!
