Finding a Courier That Delivers the Best Value
Couriers offer package delivery services with speed,
security, and tracking features. Courier services are typically more expensive
than ordinary mailing services because of those specialised services.
How does a courier operate?
Delivering mail and packages are the basic services of courier companies but there are also companies that provide specialised services such as pickup only or 'pick & pack’ services.
Couriers operate on all scales from within towns or cities to regional, national and international deliveries.
Packages will have
individual tracking numbers or QR codes. Once the packages arrive at the
transit locations, the tracking codes are scanned and the data is sent to the
company's central data repository. This enables internal tracking and also
allows customers to check whether their parcel is still
in transit or if it has already reached the intended destination.
Cost of a courier
Courier companies generally charge mileage on top of a flat rate for their services. Rates also vary depending on the value of the goods being sent.
Be certain to compare the prices of several companies in order to find the best value for money. Researching the couriers well can result in great service at an affordable price.
Selecting a good courier
Besides cost, safety, insurance and speed are other important features to look for when choosing a courier service. Especially when sending fragile or highly valuable items, you will want a courier that offers liability coverage and service terms that you are comfortable with. If safety is your main concern, search for couriers through our site which are verified to hold insurance, permits, and licences.
Customer reviews are often as good as a referral from family or friends. Make sure to look through the honest testimonials when checking a courier's Oneflare profile. An excellent courier is one that rates well on service, speed, and reliability, as well as on customer support.
We were very happy with Peter's service. He collected from our door after hours and delivered the document on time. Would recommend Peter for sure.
All Shapes and Size provided me with a great quote. They were great, on time, moved and packed everything exactly how I wanted it to be. I will definitely recommend them for other users.
