Why use a courier service instead of a postal service?
Are you a business owner who needs to get your goods to international customers on time? Or are you sending a gift or care package to a loved one? Either way, you now have a lot of choice when it comes to parcel delivery, and a postal service may not be the best option.
So what are some of the advantages of choosing a courier service instead?
Have your parcel collected from your door on the day of your choice – no having to trek to your nearest local post office branch to drop it off, no having to figure out which ones are still open, and no queues!
All of the major courier companies have an excellent track record for speedy delivery. Parcel deliveries via the Post Office can take several days longer. For example, sending a parcel to Australia generally takes 5-7 days—but courier companies will get your parcel there in just 3 days.
Courier services come tracked as standard, so you don’t have to pay a premium for the privilege. Follow the progress of your parcel from origin to destination at the click of a button, and give yourself extra peace of mind.
Couriers will always give you more power for your pound. A courier service is often still the cheaper option, even with all of these bells and whistles included.
