Wondering What Makes a Courier Service The Best?

 Here's what to look for when searching for the best courier service


Choosing the best courier service for your company can be tough. There’s a lot of competition between courier services vying to be called “the best.” So what puts a courier service out on top? And what should you look for when choosing a courier service for your business?

 

A Focus on Customer Service

The best courier service is focused on pleasing you, the customer. They love providing a top level service and are consistent every single time. The best courier service treats all customers well and every delivery is equally as important as the last. They know that it’s their job to get the delivery to its destination safely and on time. The best courier service represents your brand the way you want it to be represented.

Courier and Signature Verification

Reliability

When you trust a courier company with your business’ goods, you expect reliability. The best courier service is the most reliable. They understand that you have other critical business issues to worry about, and getting your items safely delivered shouldn’t be one of them. The best courier service won’t make you wonder about the treatment and safety of your items; it will give you the peace of mind to be able to send them out and know they are in good hands.

Honesty

The best courier service is not only reliable, but honest. Things rarely go wrong with a reliable courier, but when they do the best courier service is honest and forthright about the problem, and able to offer you solutions.  

Professionalism

Your courier service is an extension of your brand. Couriers should be uniformed, polite and have customer service top of mind. They should drive clean, well-kept vehicles. Professionalism is of the utmost importance when choosing the best courier service to represent your business.

Transparency

Additionally, the best courier service will actively communicate with you- and when appropriate, your recipient - about your deliveries. Whether they encounter traffic delays, a mistyped address, or are notifying you that your delivery has been completed; clear communication is essential.

Ease of Use

Nobody likes complicated or inconvenient services. The best courier company should have an easy-to-use order system. Whether you like ordering online, by mobile phone or calling Dispatch directly with your order details, the best courier service will have multiple options available to you. Additionally, an excellent courier will allow you to track your delivery during the entire process, and will send you email notifications upon completion. The best courier service seamlessly fits into your workflow.

A Fair Value

Cheap rarely means the best. But while this may be the case, you want a courier service that won’t break the bank. The best courier company will provide you with a fair value for the services that they offer.

Enough Manpower

Your courier service should be able to accommodate your delivery needs even on the busiest days. The best courier service is able to predict peak hours and days and will have enough drivers on staff to accommodate its customers’ courier needs, no matter what day or time. They know that business doesn’t stop at 5 PM and will be available to you after hours and on weekends to ensure that your packages get to where they need to go, whenever they need to get there.
