There are many delivery services available for your business. However, there is personalized reliability that can come from a local courier service. Local couriers are likely more affordable than you think, and they can provide your company with the individualized attention that you may not be able to get from larger delivery companies. Here are five considerations to make when considering what type of delivery service to consider.
Courier companies provide individualized attention. This means that they can make the best use of your time. You don’t have to wait several days for a large shipper to come to pick up your delivery or pay a lot of extra fees.
When your business is anxiously awaiting a delivery, a local courier service can make the process run more smoothly. Most local courier services allow you to schedule online, track your delivery, and save any tracking information electronically for your business files. Your courier service can also pay close attention to special business hours so that they do not try to deliver a package outside of the time you are at the office. You can also alert your service to extended time in the office if a package is particularly critical.
Unlike many larger shipping companies, local couriers work on weekends and after hours. Whenever you need them, they can offer specialized delivery times. Courier companies help you make sure you get important packages whenever you need them.
Local couriers, despite providing personalized attention, often charge significantly less than larger delivery companies. In addition to the actual lesser cost of the service itself, your business can also save money by reducing the risk of lost or damaged packages. Couriers can also provide additional services, such as putting items together, which saves you the time and money of handling assembly yourself or hiring an additional set of hands.
Local courier services are much easier to contact than large delivery companies. This means that, should an issue arise, it will be much easier for them to respond to it.
