All of these items and more are documents and items we keep safe during the shipping process, and here are the steps we take to do it.



We prepare each of our orders with attention to detail. We are sure to communicate effectively and efficiently with everyone in the shipping process. When receiving a shipping request from our clients, we are sure to get details such as pick up and drop off instructions, what the documents or items are as well as their weight and dimensions, schedule the client’s desired pick up and delivery times, and navigate the quickest and safest route possible for transit. With clear communication, there is a clear understanding of where the documents or items will be at all times. Another important aspect of communication is transporting the parcel as the customer has requested. Many documents and packages require special care, such as fragile items, Legal documents, or medical equipment or specimen. At Reliable Couriers, we have trained and experienced staff for any kind of delivery to meet your same-day courier needs.


Once we have picked up the items for delivery, our team takes great care to ensure they are packaged correctly. One of the extra measures our team will take is to ensure the item is placed in a large enough box to allow room for cushions such as bubble wrap or polyethylene, and polyurethane. These items are lightweight enough to save you on the cost of shipping, all while protecting your item. Another way our delivery drivers keep your documents and parcels secure is by using tamper-proof bags or packaging. These bags, once sealed, are airtight and hard to open. If a tamper-proof bag is messed with, there will be clear evidence that someone was trying to steal or damage your product. Finally, labeling them properly is one last precaution our couriers take with documents and packages. Every product receives an appropriate label such as ‘fragile’ or ‘do not fold.’ Although our couriers will never tamper, mishandle, or fold any of your documents or packages, we believe in taking the extra step to give our clients peace of mind.



No matter how many precautions a courier takes, what matters most is knowing where your package is. With Reliable Couriers, our delivery drivers are equipped with GPS tracking systems on all fleet vehicles. This lets us know exactly where your package is at any time. With this tracking, our couriers also keep a detailed record of transit; this includes pick-up time, any traffic or pick-up delays that may have occurred, drop-off time, and delivery signatures. With a detailed logging system and live GPS tracking, you can have peace of mind knowing your package is in our hands.



Not all insurance needs to be purchased when it comes to insuring your package. Before transporting any documents and packages, our delivery drivers take photos of the items before and after transit, ensuring they have safely made it through transport without any damage. While our delivery drivers take care of this step for you, you may also do this with other courier services. Another way you can ensure the safety of your packages is by choosing a professional courier service like reliable couriers, who have a proven track record of countless deliveries being made safely and securely, all in a timely manner. The last option to insure your package is purchasing an insurance plan. Many people who ship items have had bad experiences with regular courier services damaging or breaking their valuables. They feel more at ease knowing their package is fully insured and can be replaced. Unfortunately, some items are irreplaceable, which is why many choose us for their same-day shipping and courier needs.
