It’s three o’clock on a Friday afternoon, and you need to get a package across town. You know that a courier service can take care of it for you, but the problem is that with so many different same day package delivery services to choose from, you’re not sure who to turn to. To make matters worse, you know that “same day delivery” isn’t necessarily a guarantee that your package will get there that day.
If this is a situation you find yourself in, consider the following before choosing a service.
Traceability A good courier service should allow you to be able to track your package. That way, you know where it is at any given time, and can check up to make sure that it got to its destination. “When you are in a retail business, it is essential to deliver products to customers as quickly as possible and courier services provide reliability and tracking that is unmatched,” explains Sujoy Bhattacharya, owner of Falls River Soap Company.
This peace of mind is invaluable when you’re already stressed out about having to send something last minute.
Cost Courier services are often the most cost efficient way to get something from point A to point B. The price of the delivery usually depends on the package’s size, weight, and the distance it has to travel. The courier service may also offer additional services that might increase the price, but add value to the delivery, ensuring that your letter or package gets there intact within your stipulated time frame.
Reputation You’d also be wise to call the Better Business Bureau before taking your business to a particular courier. They can tell you about any complaints that past clients might have filed against the courier service, which could make or break your decision.
Good courier services are cost effective, reliable and safe, but before you trust one with your same day deliveries, you need to make sure that your packages are in the right hands. If you have any questions about how to choose a package delivery service, feel free to ask in the comments.
