Five Times a Courier Could Be Important To You

Five Times a Courier Could Be Important To You

By on Feb 5, 2021 in Our Blog |

For those that use courier services in their lives, we often receive testimonials that prove the worth of what our couriers do. However, those that aren’t too familiar may wonder what makes courier services so important to businesses. In our latest blog, we’re going to discuss five circumstances that a courier can be a lifesaver to both you or your business.

Urgent Deliveries

A courier really comes into its element for those occasions where tomorrow just isn’t good enough. Here at Compass Couriers, we offer two services that are guaranteed to have your parcel delivered anywhere in mainland UK by the end of the same working day:

  • Premier Delivery Service
  • Same Day Delivery Service

This level of service is achieved thanks to our expertly trained couriers being on standby around the country 24/7, 365 days of the year. As soon as a quote has been agreed, our couriers will instantly begin making their way to you. Regularly used for routes into Manchester, Glasgow, London and Birmingham, they’re also able to offer a quick, efficient and safe nationwide service.

Secure Delivery

One of the biggest worries that people have when having things delivered is whether it’s safe, secure and being handled correctly. By hiring a courier like ourselves, you can guarantee yourself all three. Our expertly trained couriers are experienced in handling a wide variety of consignments from the largest and most fragile to the smallest and most heavy. In the cases of confidential documents, or sensitive equipment, our couriers also ensure the utmost courtesy and confidentiality.

Upon arrival, times and signatures are documented and then communicated to the sender. Thanks to our fleet of vehicles being fitted with the best GPS technology, we also provide regular, accurate updates on your consignment. Our offices are also manned 24/7 so that you always have access to where your parcel is. In addition to this, you can rest assured knowing that insurance is included in our services. This includes up to £10,000 Goods in Transit Insurance cover available in our same day service and up to £20,000 in our premier service.

A Courier Can Work Around You

By selecting a courier service, you’re collaborating with a company that will tailor their service to suit your needs. For example, when you make a booking with Compass Couriers, you will be able to make the following arrangements:

  • Collection Date & Time
  • Vehicle Type
  • Service Type
  • Delivery Deadline

In addition to this, you will also be able to communicate any special instructions regarding who will be accepting the delivery, a tricky address or the type of goods that are being transported. If your delivery happens to require anything that we haven’t mentioned, please still get in touch and our team will see what we can do. Our couriers love a challenge.

Access To Different Vehicles

In order to handle deliveries of all shapes, sizes and fragility our couriers operate a large fleet of different vehicles. As touched on earlier, each of our vehicles is fitted with the best GPS technology to ensure accurate tracking information and are designed to be the most effective means of transport for your consignment. Our fleet of vehicles includes:

  • Motorcycle
  • Small Van
  • Large Van (LWB Transit, 1.2t payload)
  • 7.5t truck (payload up to 2.8t)

The vehicle can be selected in our online booking/quote form or alternatively, you will be asked about your preference when booking over the phone.
