Courier services have become essential to business efficiency and productivity. Therefore as a business, you may want to take time and select a reliable courier delivery service that is going to help you make timely and safe deliveries. Here are some major tips to consider in your selection process.

Availability

Whenever business owners are hiring the services of a courier company, they want to make sure that the features will be immediately available. This means having the ability to pick up and deliver packages right away. Do not be afraid to ask your prospective courier companies about their availability. They shouldn’t compel you to take the package to their offices so they can make a delivery.

Size & Weight Restrictions

Basically, courier services have different prices for different packages according to their size and weight. Be sure to check their price list before you decide if their services are what you need. In addition, be sure to ask if there are any limitations regarding the weight or size of the packages you can send. It is always beneficial to work with a company without such limitations.

Proof of Parcel Delivery

Any accredited courier service should commit to providing customers with proof of delivery. Hiring a courier service in Portland is not going to be useful to your business if you can't really tell when your shipment reached its final destination.. Therefore, it is highly important to only choose a courier service that will provide proof of delivery. Also, make sure to choose a company that provides tracking services as well.

Value for Money

For every product or service you buy, it is important to always get the right value for the money. Sometimes consumers forget this perspective and only look to save some money. They will eventually end up selecting cheap courier services that don’t provide the services they need.. Actually, the lowest price doesn't always mean the best value. 

Insurance

What if your parcel or shipment doesn’t make it to its final destination? It can be an overwhelming situation if the items you were shipping were of high value or confidential. However, you can protect the shipments against such circumstances and maintain your peace of mind when you know your package was secured by indemnity cover. Basically, courier delivery services should have comprehensive insurance plans to protect their customer’s goods.
