A good courier company is something that, once found, can become one of the most important assets to your business. But with so many different courier companies out there, which ones are treats and which ones, like Halloween monsters, are going to trick you? It’s important to find a good courier company that suits your company and your needs, and here are some tips on what to look out for.
Most businesses these days at least have a website, and ideally they will have a website that actually works for the customer or client, giving them more than simple information and allowing them to engage fully. When it comes to a good courier company, that website should be utilised to the fullest, offering the client the ability to book and even track their parcels as they go. If there is no website, or if the website of the courier company you are looking at using only offers scant contact details, for example, this might be a warning sign. A good courier company will have a good website that they have taken time and care over and invested in.
A good courier company is one that comes with a good reputation. Search for reviews and testimonials online and Google the company name to see what others are saying about it. If there is anything to worry about, don’t chance it – use a company that others are happy to use as well. Look for unbiased reviews such as those you would find on Trustpilot and similar sites; you’ll see exactly what people think and you can decide who to use accordingly.
Yes, the courier company you are using might be able to get your goods from A to B, but when it comes to dealing with you and the people who are receiving those packages at the other end, are they polite? Do they go the extra mile? Do they make the effort to interact and help wherever possible? This can be the biggest difference between a good courier company and a bad one. It’s not just about delivering parcels; the best courier companies know that and act on it.
There are cheap courier companies, there are expensive courier companies, and there are courier companies that fall somewhere in the middle. It’s always best not to pay attention to the price to begin with because great companies might charge very little and terrible ones might charge a lot – price doesn’t always equal quality. Find the courier companies you are happy to work with, and then look at pricing to see what will work with your budget.
