After the boom of e-commerce such as online shopping, retailers, and business owners buying items online from overseas and selling them in United Kingdom, in the past decade or so there has been a greater need for couriers, especially those offering same day deliveries. As a result of this, there is a great deal of saturation and competition in the UK courier business scene with smaller new couriers popping up frequently all the time. With the increase in options, it can often be confusing as to what constitutes a great sameday courier company. Let us inform you few different ways to consider when choosing the right service provider.
For good reason, same-day couriers are very keen on speed and this is why a good courier will always have at least many different sized vehicles and reliable team usually consisting of two or more man delivery team to make sure things go smoothly. Having more than one courier vehicles available means that depending on the scope of items to be shipped costs will be reduced. For example, transporting 10000kg items using a small delivery van isn’t logical. Instead, using large trucks which can get the job done right away will reduce costs to business owners requiring regular deliveries for large shipments. Also, having wide range of fleet of vehicles means that you can expect better handling of parcels and your parcel’s arrival to be safer.
Sameday couriers offering custom solutions have teams to collect parcels from all over their local areas in UK (the entire area that each branch is allocated to such as Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham) so that customers do not even have to leave the comfort of their homes to send their packages. The courier van brings all the packaging material to label and safely pack a parcel at your doorstep. Some of the best same-day couriers will take as little as an hour to arrive at your house.
For parcels or documents which need to be signed, swapped or otherwise stamped and then reshipped, you can also utilise the services of same-day couriers ‘wait and return’ service in which the courier will wait for you at a nominal charge and then reship the parcel.
Well established and reputable couriers across the board believe in getting insurance because accidents can always happen and their first duty is to their customers. If you are looking for a same-day courier company that you can trust, always check beforehand if they are insured. Because insurance provides a fool-proof backup plan for couriers that have reached a certain level of business accomplishment and want to protect their brand image from the repercussions of unfortunate incidents. Insurance is put in place so that customers do not lose their money or the value of their goods and therefore can be compensated if damage has occurred for any reason such as fire or a road accident.
The quality and diligence of the customer service is another unavoidable sign of a trusted same-day courier company. Due to the nature of their services, it matters if they can actually deliver on time, give you regular updates and overall have a friendly and receptive demeanor to queries and questions.
