What to Look for When Hiring a Discount Courier Service

Whether yours is a major multi-national corporation with worldwide operations, a small local business, or a sole proprietorship operating out of your basement, at some point in time you will likely need a courier service.

 

And with businesses of all sizes looking to trim costs and find efficiencies wherever possible, using a discount courier service, as opposed to the big name-brand courier companies, can save you money. In fact, the right discount courier might suit your needs better than the ‘big-box” services; so you save money and get better service.

 

Fortunately, as Canada’s largest city and business centre, Toronto has no shortage of options for discount couriers.

 

And service is the name of the game when it comes to choosing any courier, discount or not. While reducing cost is important, using a courier that can’t deliver reliable service will very likely cost you far more than anysavings you realizefromlower courier fees. If your packages are not where you need them to be, when you need them to be there, intact, and for the agreed upon price, the potential damage to your business might be immeasurable.

 

Another reason not to choose your absolutely lowest cost discount courier option is because the service you choose really becomes a part of your business. Package and cargo delivery is one of the first functions you “outsource” in your business. That means Hiring Discount Courier is responsible for delivery of your packages, shipments and documents, or for picking up business materials that you need. It’s an important function for your business and you don’t want to be using the cheapest courier every time you need something picked-up or delivered. You need a courier service that works like a partner in your business, so you need to find a company that you can work with on an ongoing basis.

 

With that in mind, your business will very likely change and/or grow. That means your courier requirements will change too. So it’s important for you to choose a service now that offers all of the services that you can imagine you’ll ever need. This includes bicycle couriers that can get your envelopes across Toronto faster than motorized couriers, overnight package delivery, worldwide delivery, specialized shipping options, and, potentially, the warehousing and scheduled transportation options that many ecommerce businesses take advantage of today.

 

One more thing to look for in any discount courier service you choose: convenience, like online ordering and shipment tracking. Again, it can very easily cost you more than the fees you’re saving to use a courier that takes more time to deal with.
