A reliable courier service can be an asset for many businesses.
Here are five reasons why a firm of solicitors could benefit.
1. Quick service:
Solicitors often deal with time sensitive information that needs to be with clients or other professionals in a specific time frame. Courier services make this doable. For example, solicitors can send documents and parcels Next Day. In addition, if the parcel needs to arrive in the morning, Timed services can be used. Finally, if a document is very urgent, same-day collections and deliveries can be booked.
2. Proof of receipt:
Solicitors will often want proof that the recipient has received an item. A courier makes this easy by electronically recording the time of delivery. What’s more, some couriers will even capture an electronic signature of the person who signed for the item.
If important items are being sent, peace of mind is crucial. Express parcels processed by the big brand couriers such as City Link, Yodel and Parcelforce worldwide will have a unique electronic barcode. Depending on the courier, this barcode will be scanned at various points throughout the network giving parcels visibility. Simply type in your unique barcode number online, and you can track its progress through the network.
Couriers collect items from your specified address. They will come direct to your solicitor’s office to pick up any items that you have to post. This saves time, as you won’t need to pop to the Post Office or the local depot.
5. Cost effective:
Whilst reliability is likely to be more important to you, because courier providers offer a range of delivery specifications at different prices to pick from, you can choose the service which best meets your posting needs.
