As a small business you have so many things to juggle – your marketing, sales, customer service, fulfilling orders to name just a few. In fact your to do list probably grows on a daily basis.
If you’re an on-line retailer who needs to fulfil customer orders on a regular basis, here’s a solution that could save you time and a fair bit of hassle.
Do you usually use the Post Office to despatch your parcels?
If you do how much time does that take you?
Let’s think. There’s the time spent loading your car, then the journey and finally the parking up and carrying all your items to the counter… PHEW!
Well here’s an alternative that’s worth a look.
Try using a courier instead.
Perhaps you’re under the impression a courier is a lot more expensive. If that’s the case you may be surprised. The competitive nature of the market means there are some good deals to be had.
What’s more one of the key benefits is the courier driver will collect your parcels from your door. That means you no longer have to make the trip out. You get to free up some valuable time and can focus on crossing something else off your to do list.
In addition once your parcels enter the courier network they’ll be electronically traceable. That means at the click of a mouse you’ll be able to track their progress through the courier network and check they were delivered.
Next time you have some parcels to post try using a courier and see if it frees up some time in your day.
