Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find most frequently asked questions and answers about our couriers and delivery services.

General Topics

What is a courier service?

A courier service is a delivery service that is similar to shipping, but instead of shipping all of your deliveries are completed by a driver the same day. This ensures that your package is delivered on time with no delays and safely to it’s destination without it being bumped around during the shipping process.

Why would I need a courier service?

Couriers fill the need for delivery of packages where shipping just doesn’t cut it. Some examples would be when a delivery needs to be completed quickly or the same day. Others an include when a package is too large to be shipped but still needs to be delivered quickly. Some deliveries are also too valuable to leave to a normal shipping provider. A courier and same day delivery service fills those needs because your package is picked up at point A and driven to point B without any stops in between. This means your package arrives on time and safely to it’s destination.

What does it cost for a courier?

Costs for our courier and delivery services will vary based upon the size and weight of the item, what type of vehicle you require, how quickly you need the item delivered and the distance from your pick up point and delivery point. Contact us or use our online request form for an accurate quote.
