For companies that need to make a lot of time-sensitive deliveries, a courier service is invaluable; they’re practically an unofficial part of your company. If you run a company that needs a courier service, you’ll want to get the best in courier services in NZ or wherever it is you operate.
Here’s some tips.
Make sure they cover your customers
First and foremost, you need to find the company that covers your customers, clients as well as your colleagues. Couriers are primarily used to send to local recipients, and you want a service that covers your nearby recipients. Make sure that the service you contract with covers everyone and everywhere you want it to, as that’ll allow you to manage local deliveries easily and efficiently.
Cross country and across the world
Courier services tend to be used to make local deliveries, but it’s still a good idea to contract a service that’ll cover any non-local deliveries. It’s not likely that you’ll need such a service, there’s a peace of mind in knowing you’re prepared for the worst. Usually, courier services in NZ and across the world don’t handle the national and international shipping themselves, but rather pass them onto a company that does handle national and international shipping. It might cost a bit more, but the security and convenience is worth it.
It’s unavoidable for most businesses that they’ll have to make after-hour deliveries. Some do it all the time, like real estate agents, who have to regularly send papers after business hours thanks to their irregular work hours and time-sensitive nature of some of their work. Even if your business doesn’t actually have a need for making after-hours deliveries it’s still a smart idea to contract a service that can handle such a need should it arise.
Usually, the moment a package is handed over to a courier service, commercial property insurance policies won’t cover it. Since the courier handles the package, it’s their responsibility to protect it. The best services will make sure they never need insurance, but will offer it for assurance. Again, it’s all a matter of being prepared should the worst come to pass.
