Why courier services are the ultimate backup plan
Let’s be honest – in many ways, we’re spoiled as a society compared to some previous generations. We have amazing connectivity, ability to share information and transport things from one place to another – better than it’s ever been before. That being said – technology can’t solve anything and just like the ancient sumarians – we need someone to physically take the thing we need delivered and bring it to the place where it’s supposed to be delivered to.
While we’ve been able to improve in the margins – things like unpredictability, human error and the like – still influence our industry and to an extent – always will. Even if you’re more accustomed to using more traditional methods of delivery, it’s important to keep a courier service on speed dial – largely just because you never know. If you ever find yourself in one of the following situations, don’t despair. A courier service may be able to help you!
What to do when the mailman doesn’t come
Let’s say you’ve planned ahead, paid for the service and then, well – the mailman doesn’t get picked up. However, sometimes mistakes are made and some routes get left out. In this instance, if your package was in need of same day shipping service, you’re out of luck! If this happens to you – courier services can pinch hit in a pinch, and get your package to where it needs to get to that day.
When the risk is too high
Most package delivery services are really, really reliable – but there are some situations where you just can’t risk it. Perhaps it’s legal documents, important business documentation or even more important – a medical delivery. You simply can’t entrust your delivery to a service that is shipping your package with hundreds of others simultaneously. Sometimes it’s not about cost. It’s about not being able to afford taking any chances.
When it’s on you
Hey – when we meant human error, we’re including you in this, too. Why? Because we’ve all been there! Maybe you entered something into the system improperly, chose the wrong recipient, were late processing your order, got hung up in traffic or just did a poor job of planning. Whatever the reason, courier services can help clean up the mess. So long as we’re not grossly violating the laws of physics, most courier services will be able to help you get your package to where it needs to get to within 24 hours. So if you messed up, we’ll help bail you out!
