Customers frequently want to send a parcel, but they also want to minimise the cost.
But this desire to save money also needs to take into account the quality of service. After all, whilst you may want a cheap price, you’ll also want your parcel to arrive safely.
Maybe you’ve been wondering whether cheap parcel delivery is actually a good idea. I think it depends on who you commission to handle your parcel.
Perhaps you’d feel more secure handing your item over to one of the big brand couriers – for example ParcelForce Worldwide, City Link or Yodel. After all these brands have got a reputation to protect. In addition they operate a well-honed global network of parcel distribution and are generally reliable.
But perhaps you’ve dismissed using them because you thought they would be too expensive.
Well that might not actually be the case.
That’s because it is possible to get cheap parcel delivery and still use one of the big brands. You just need to know where to look.
Let me explain…
If you use a parcel booking agent or a parcel re-seller, it is possible to access the courier network of the big brands AND pay less. That’s because the booking agents and re-sellers can arrange the service on your behalf, often at a cheaper price than you could get by going direct. The reason for this is parcel re-sellers purchase collections on behalf of so many customers that they get a bulk-buying discount. Then they pass some of those savings on to you.
Which means cheap parcel delivery does not necessarily mean a compromise on quality. Intrigued? Then why not check it out for yourself?
