How to choose a courier service. Part 1

You are right... a monkey could do this job. Heck, it's just a matter of picking something up from here and delivering it there, right? Well, yes and no.

Yes, a monkey can pick up a package and take it somewhere. But, do you really want a smelly monkey delivering your package? No.

Delivery. It's a smiple concept. But, there are many complicated factors involved. Such as: traffic and weather conditions. Sure, it may be easy to get that package delivered across town at 10:30am on Tuedsay. But, not so much on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm. Sure it is a 20 minute drive on a nice July afternoon. But, it is a nightmare during a sleeting storm in December. Turns into 90 minutes. Those are just traffic issues.

So, what am I saying? Well, although Joe-Bob and his brother have a "courier service", the two of them can not effectively service any large account. If you have any significant amount of business then you need a legitimate courier firm that has enough drivers to handle your business as well as all their other customers.

Next time we will talk about professionalism and image.

Well done for pointing out the pitfalls.

Out where I live and do business choosing a courier service is actually pretty easy. There are plenty of company’s you want to avoid like anywhere else but there are two or three companies that know how to make a delivery on time, with courtesy, and no excuses….or damage for that matter.
