Do you use a courier service?
Perhaps you use it for business. Or maybe you use a courier for personal reasons such as delivering a birthday present, or sending an item to a friend or relative.
Whatever your reason for using a courier service, what’s your reason?
What do you value most?
Is it because they offer lots of choice?
After all you can send a parcel next day, sameday, nationally and internationally. In fact, if you need to send a parcel from door to door, a courier provider can help you reach just about anywhere in the world.
Perhaps it’s the convenience?
After all, you’d struggle to take an item to your destination yourself. You could be required to travel a long distance and that could take you lots of time and money. Let’s face it. You probably don’t need to deliver your item face-to-face!
Maybe you like the reliability?
The courier market is now very high tech. If you post with one of the big brands like City Link, Parcelforce Worldwide, Yodel or DHL, your parcel will move through the network with an electronic barcode. It gets scanned at different points within the network meaning you can keep an eye on it. It’s a great way to get peace of mind. Then when your item gets delivered you know for sure it’s arrived.
Or is it the cost?
The courier marketplace is super competitive. That means you can courier a parcel for less than you think. In addition, the arrival of parcel booking agents and re-sellers means your courier collection could cost even less than you thought.
