Have you ever needed to get something somewhere and didn't know exactly how to get it there? Well if you need it there tomorrow, there are many couriers proffering the adage "when it absolutely HAS to be there, we'll deliver". But what if it your product needs to be there as soon as possible and tomorrow is too late?
This is where an express courier service can be a lifesaver. Couriers will pick up your product and deliver it directly to the place to which it needs to go. No stops in between. No other deliveries along the way. You get a dedicated delivery to your location with a guaranteed time of delivery. This is even true for long distance movements or heavy items. Courier services are professional drivers that are bonded and insured for your security and peace of mind. Should something happen along the way, your product(s) is/are covered in full. But you don't want to think about that. You want to know how to get it where it needs to go so quickly.
This is no trick. It is simple and easy. Pack your products up securely to avoid damage in transit. Some courier services may offer to palletise or repack your materials for a fee. Most do not do this, but there are a few that provide that service. Now you are ready to get it going. Call the express courier service you have decided to use. You should have the following information ready beforehand:
- Address where it is being picked up.
- Address to where it is going with postcode.
- How much it weighs.
- The dimensions of the package or skid.
- A name and phone number at the destination.
Give all this information to the express courier service dispatcher and they will start the search for a driver with an appropriate size vehicle. Be prepared to wait a couple of hours for the driver to get to you. These courier service drivers are independent contractors and work for themselves. Plus they have to make sure the truck is good for the road and all is ready for the trip ahead.
Obviously, for larger shipments that are on skids or need a forklift to load them, you will need to wait for the driver to arrive so you can load the shipment in the vehicle. If it is a smaller package, you can leave it in a safe place for the driver to pick it up and you can go on your way.
For local deliveries, you can get your products to the marketplace with an express courier service. Usually, local courier services operate in a specific radius that allows for one hour delivery time. Typically, this radius is 50 miles or so.
In either case, moving your products with an express courier service is a quick way to get them to the desired location. Whether going across town or across the country, an express courier service such as Spartan Motorcycle Couriers is what you need.
