What is a Messenger and How Can You Benefit? 

Messenger companies, similar to courier services, are used to send documents and packages to a recipient.

 

Used as an alternative to larger companies, like FedEx or UPS, messenger services are seen as a more secure, reliable, and cost effective method of same-day or pre-scheduled delivery. Messengers are generally used to transport items across town or to a nearby city, rather than internationally.

Messengers’ means of transportation differ depending on the delivery area. In downtown or urban areas, bicycle messengers are common. Bicycle delivery allows messengers to better navigate congested areas and eliminates the need to find downtown parking. They usually make shorter distance runs in busy areas, but are able to complete more deliveries. Some messengers drive large vans or SUVs to accommodate oversized deliveries, such as bulky catering orders. While others drive cars to complete longer distance runs, sometimes even inter-city.

Messengers can be utilized by almost anybody for a variety of different reasons. A few examples of businesses that use messenger services include:

• Law Firms
• Title Companies
• Florists
• Bakeries
• Grocery Stores 
Catering Companies
• Restaurants
Retail Stores
• E-commerce shops
• Pharmacies
• Hospitals
• Commercial and Industrial Companies
• Print Shops

Benefits to Using a Messenger Service:

 

Save Time: Messengers pick up from your location. Unlike some other parcel companies where you have to drop your package off at a storefront location or mailbox, messengers are at your service.  

Save Money: Messenger services usually only charge for the distance your package is travelling, whereas larger parcel companies charge based off of dimensions and weight, in addition to distance.  

Get Peace of Mind: With large parcel companies, once you send your package there’s often no making changes. Messenger services allow you to modify your order all the way up until delivery. From point A to point B, your items are typically with the same person throughout the delivery process, unlike traditional mail services that take packages to a distribution center for sorting before final delivery.

 

Your Same-Day Delivery Needs Solved.

 

When you choose Dropoff as your same-day messenger, you gain a reliable, professional, and transparent same-day delivery service.

Our live-map tracking capabilities and up-to-the-minute ETAs let you know exactly where your messenger (we call them Agents) is in the delivery process, so you never have to call to track down your items. If the details of your order change, Dropoff provides you with your Agent’s direct phone number so that you can contact them directly to get your changes implemented in the fastest way possible.

Our Agents are trained, background-checked, and have extensive customer service experience. They get your items there on time, every time, and always represent your brand the way you want it represented.

Once your order has been delivered, you will receive a confirmation email with a signature verification from your recipient. We also give you the ability to rate your Agent, so that we only  keep the best of the best on the road serving you.

With Dropoff, you will always receive upfront pricing and never experience hidden fees or fuel surcharges. What you see is what you get.
