Do you sell items on eBay?
Perhaps you use the selling function on an ad-hoc basis as part of your efforts to de-clutter and minimalize. Or maybe you have a small online retail business and use eBay as one of your sales outlets.
Whatever your reason, you’ll want to minimise your delivery costs whilst ensuring a reliable service. After all, you don’t want to attract customer complaints for missing parcels.
If so, it’s worth checking out a courier service when you have a parcel to go.
That’s because modern courier services offer lots of advantages to both the ad hoc user as well as posters who require a more regular service. For example:
Your chosen courier will collect your parcel from the address that you specify. This means you don’t have to make a trip to the Post Office. This could be a real advantage if it’s difficult to get out of the house or if you have a number of parcels to send.
A courier’s reputation will be influenced by its ability to deliver its advertised service specifications. As such, whilst mishaps can occur, couriers do all they can to deliver on time, to the right destination and in one piece. In addition, electronic tracking makes it easy for you to check your parcel’s progress online.
The courier market is so competitive that it’s now possible to get cheap parcel delivery. It’s worth shopping around because you’ll find different couriers offer different prices depending on the delivery specification. In addition, if you don’t have the time, you could try a parcel re-seller. You’ll be able to compare prices for a range of big brand couriers as well as booking a collection online.
Next time you need to post that eBay parcel, consider the courier route.
