When Should I Get a Courier?

By on Feb 19, 2021 in Our Blog |

Here at Compass Couriers, we believe that there is a very short answer for this question. The answer? Any time. Whether it’s short notice, booked well in advance, a small parcel or a large consignment, a courier can always help. However, in order to explain why, we’ve put together the following guide featuring a number of times that you may need a courier.

Delivery Upon Short Notice

If you’ve got an unforeseen pressing deadline and you need bailing out, there is truly no better help than a courier service. As long as your consignment is getting delivered to mainland UK, our team of expert couriers can help. Our team takes bookings 24/7, throughout the whole year to ensure that you have always got a reliable courier at your beckon call.

As soon as a quote has been agreed, our network of couriers can set off immediately to collect and deliver your parcel on time. Whether it’s a forgotten passport or a large consignment worthy of a lorry, you can always count on us to get it there on time. Thanks to our same day delivery and premier delivery services, we can guarantee delivery on the same working day. Not only that, but if your collection point is in Staffordshire or Cheshire, we can also guarantee collection in under one hour.

Expensive or Confidential Consignments

Our team of couriers takes pride in the secure, yet speedy service that we are able to provide. From offering insurance to installing the best GPS software to our vehicles, our team has worked hard to make our services reliable and secure. This has helped us to become the National Courier Association’s top UK Same Day Courier Company.

Depending on whether you select the premier or same day courier service, you will have the peace of mind knowing that your goods are protected with up to £20,000 worth of Goods in Transit insurance. Not only that, but our network of couriers are also expertly trained and experienced in transporting confidential documents and deliveries. Having gained experience working across multiple sectors from solicitors to print companies, you can have confidence that your consignment is in capable hands.

24 Hour Courier Tracking

We fully understand the importance of being able to track your consignment’s progress and as a result, we’ve worked hard to provide the ultimate client experience. All of our vehicles are fitted with the best GPS software so that we can provide regular updates on the location of your delivery.

In addition to this, our call centre is manned 24/7, throughout the year. Therefore, if you wish to speak to an advisor for more information, you can do so at any time during your collection/delivery. This accurate tracking system is a huge benefit to a lot of our clients, and another reason why you may consider using it as opposed to other options.

Personalised Delivery Options

If you’re looking for a personalised delivery and collection service, then look no further. A courier service like ourselves can offer unprecedented personalisation to tailor the delivery around your needs. During the booking process, you will have the option to make all of the following choices:

  • Collection Date/Time
  • Deadline
  • Required Vehicle
  • Service Type

Depending on what the delivery requires, we can also cater to special instructions. This could be to meet a certain client or representative, to deliver to a specified location or to wait and return. Thanks to our experience, we understand that no two jobs are the same and so as can be seen in our case studies, our team is always prepared for a new challenge.
