If you are about to send a parcel through a courier or parcel delivery service, you would definitely be concerned about its safe arrival at its destination. I have advocated six must follow tips that, if you’ll follow, will make sure that your parcel gets delivered the right way at the right place; please check out the following –
The company – Going with a well-recognized parcel delivery service is an essential step. Brands and chained service providers never mishandle your goods, as it may affect their repute. They understand the world has become a tiny place with internet available widely. And on the Internet, maligning any product, brand or company has become a piece of cake. Therefore, a reputed courier company will never do anything that can damage your item or package. Though, the service charge asked by brands is comparably high, but they deliver the trustworthy services.
Size & Weight – These two factors firm up the final price for service delivery. Before consulting a courier company, you should check the size and weight of your package. Packing your small items in large box would only boost the weight and service charge. You should remove excess and unnecessary stuffs from the package.
The type of item heightens the cost. – Yes, it affects the final price. There are classifications of goods and items that can be sent via courier. Every item belongs to a series or group, which has its very own service delivery charges. Every company, and even the government sponsored postal service, follow this system. Thereby, you should check if it is really important to send your expensive (certain group of) item via courier. Additionally, you should pass up sending restricted items via courier.
Distance – Distance also plays a key role in defining the final price for the service. Interstate or international delivery is quite expensive, and there are different (licensed) providers of such range of services. Sending something to remote and distant areas, and small towns would cost more.
The swiftness – If you want to send something speedily via express or air, it too would be extra chargeable. Again, if it is not that important, you can avoid using this pricey facility.
Attach the message – You should never forget to enclose your message for the person, whom you are sending the parcel to. It will mark a good impression on the recipient. In addition to, before handing over your package, you should ensure if you have placed the correct address of the recipient and sender. However, the person who books the delivery, check this on his own, but you too should ensure this from your end.
