More often than not you will find yourself anxiously waiting for a parcel to arrive or reach the person you sent to if you’re the sender. The anxiety increases especially when sending very sensitive documents. Have you ever asked yourself why you are always anxious? I am sure many people have and the reason for this is the fact that you are not certain with the security of your sensitive documents. This can be attributed to the fact that you don’t know how secure the courier company is.



With security of your parcel in mind there are a few important things to consider in selecting a secure courier transport. 
 
The Courier company

A well established company would be in a better position to guarantee the safety of your parcel. This is because no matter where you want to send your important documents to, they will most likely do the delivery themselves without using an intermediary. The use of intermediaries in delivery of parcels or outsourcing to a different company to do the delivery, increases risk to your parcel. The experience of the company is also important. The number of years they have been in business should give you more confidence in the company and also the direct personal touch.



 Mode of transport

The mode of transport used is determined by the distance the parcel has to cover. If it is a long distance the preferred mode is motorcycle transport. However, for local deliveries vans or cars are more commonly used. There are very few issues with motorcycle transport, its fast, secure and traffic is not a problem. When you use a courier company you have to be comfortable with the companies available transport vehicles. If the company does not maintain the vehicles regularly or it uses old vehicles then this is definitely a red alert for you. A company like this cannot guarantee the security of your parcel. Impressions to the receiver are also important, old vehicles or delayed deliveries due to breakdown have a lasting affect.

 Storage Facilities

At some point during transit the courier company may be required to store the parcel overnight or as it awaits collection. Good storage facilities will guarantee that your important documents are safe. If the storage facility is a small space, this might lead to all the parcels being piled up together which may cause damage to your parcel.

 Professionalism of the staff

A courier company with professional employees is more likely to ensure the safety of your documents. Professionalism is brought about by training and so it means they know how to handle your important package to your satisfaction. Also with professionalism you can be guaranteed that the privacy of your documents will be kept. Dealing directly with a personal courier company, means you have a direct contact with them, this provides you with reassurance that you can keep track of the delivery.

Speed of delivery

The faster your documents get to their destination the more secure they will be. Speed is not only safe but it is also very convenient for professionals like lawyers and solicitors. These documents may be required for a court case in a few hours. If the courier company can deliver them securely and in a short period of time then the better. same can be said for medical supplies.

At some point you will be required to transport some very important documents from one point to another and to do this you will require a courier company. Despite being so many of them, not all will guarantee the safety of your documents. To select a secure courier transport it is very important to consider the above key points.
